"Excellent, Talented Surgeon - Dr. Fernau performed a rhinoplasty, septoplasty, and otoplasty on me. I am extremely happy with the result. In addition to being extremely talented, he is also very big on patient safety and I would recommend him 1000%. The office staff were always very kind and willing to answer any questions."- Anonymous / Vitals / Feb 26, 2019
"Dr. Fernau and his staff are amazing! In June 2018 I had a no drain lipoabdominoplasty and the results are better than I ever could have imagined. During the consultation, I was given the options based on what I wanted to accomplish and Dr. Fernau was very honest with me in which procedures would get me the best results. In deciding to go through with the tummy tuck, Sheila was a wealth of knowledge in going over the paper work and preoperative procedures. On the day of the surgery at Trinity Hospital (and their staff was amazing too!), I was nervous, but knew I was in good hands because of how thorough and meticulous Dr. Fernau was before we went into the room for surgery. After surgery I couldn't believe how good I felt and already looked! The recovery process was much better than expected (I never took a pain pill!). I was walking pretty much normal after a week and back to normal activities within 6 weeks. My life has changed completely due to this procedure and the wonderful results thanks to Dr. Fernau. I am continuing to workout and watch my diet and after 5 months post-op I am down 20 pounds and look like a whole knew person! I highly recommend Dr. Fernau and his staff. They are truly AMAZING!"- A. / Google / Nov 26, 2018

How Does Cellulaze™ Work?
A very small cannula (or tube about the size of the tip of a pen) is inserted under the skin. Cynosure’s unique SideLight laser fiber inside the tube delivers energy directly under the skin. This increases the depth and quality of your skin, while simultaneously releasing the fibrous bands that pull it down— minimizing the orange peel look associated with cellulite. Finally, the laser is used to diminish the lumpy pockets of fat that protrude through the fibrous bands under your skin.
Good Cellulaze Candidacy?
Cellulaze delivers the best results for women who are not significantly overweight but have mild to moderate cellulite on their thighs. If you are considering Cellulaze but have questions, we encourage you to call us and schedule a consultation.
Is Cellulaze painful?
Because the area is numbed with local anesthesia, there is minimal discomfort during the procedure. You may feel a light pressure. Following a Cellulaze treatment, you may experience some soreness, but you will be able to return to your normal activities in a day or two.
Does Cellulaze Really Work?
Cellulaze is backed by two years of clinical research. Studies have shown that it increases the thickness of your skin by 25% and the elasticity of your skin by 29%—significant claims that haven’t been made by any other treatments. Thicker and more elastic skin can help flatten and smooth the skin’s surface to improve the appearance of cellulite.
How Long do the Results Last?
You’ll see some improvement right away with optimal results apparent between 3-6 months. Since new collagen is formed in the areas treated with Cellulaze and the structures under the skin are altered, results are lasting. Clinical studies have shown results can last for one year or more. However, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to continue to enjoy the excellent results.
