Cellulite Treatment with Endermolgie in Baltimore, MD…
Cellulite is a dimpling of the skin due to short fibrous bands interposed with subcutaneous fat cells. Cellulite is a condition that affects 85% of women, regardless of shape and size. The condition is typically worse with loose skin and is most commonly seen around the lateral thighs and buttocks. To improve the appearance of cellulite, the fibrous bands can be stretched and the fat deposits can be mobilized with medical therapy.
I am 30 years old and had a breast augmentation with Dr. Summers at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center. The pre-operative details, surgical procedure and post-operative care are excellent. I couldn’t have asked for better treatment from even the President’s staff! My experience is one that I’ll remember, never regret and wish I had done it sooner.

I am a 35 year old mother of two children. Currently, I am working for a life insurance company via telecommunication. I would like to thank Dr. Adam Summers for having the opportunity to have this procedure. My breast augmentation and breast lift procedure turned out absolutely beautiful. I cannot describe how much better I feel about myself and the self-esteem I have gotten since my surgery. The results are simply amazing.

Dr. Summers and the MD Plastic Surgery staff were incredible. Dr. Summers made me feel very comfortable about my procedure, as I was very nervous about having it done. The staff was warm and welcoming, caring, and I could tell they were genuinely interested in my well-being, satisfaction with the results, and recovery. As for the procedure, Dr. Summers did an excellent job, my recovery and results, quite amazing! I recovered fast and now it’s been 7 months and I am SUPER happy with my neck! This procedure has allowed me to feel so much better about myself and given me a new sense of confidence. Thank you MD Plastic Surgery!

Everything about this experience exceeded my expectations and none of my fears about having cosmetic surgery came true. The results were completely natural looking–as though the clock had been set back many years and while the before and after results were substantial, the overall effect was just right and nobody even asked whether I had any “work” performed on my face. I am most happy about the fact that the double chin, which I’d had for my entire life, is now gone and I have an actual jaw line.
I have known Dr. Stefan for over fourteen years and my experience with him and his staff has been outstanding. I was extremely satisfied with my breast augmentation he preformed almost 14 years ago. I recently returned to Dr. Stefan to have a reaugmentation. Dr. Stefan is a very skillful, knowledgable, and caring doctor. He is absolutely amazing and does incredible work. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an exceptional plastic surgeon.
What a joy it has been to have become a patient of yours. I came to you in mid 2013 after having initial consultations with two other plastic surgeons. Having very specific and complicated surgeries in mind with limited time and finances, I was fairly sure that I would once again be disappointed. However, it was during that first meeting that I decided you would be my doctor.I have very much appreciated the extra time and effort that you spend talking with me, learning about my life, planning my procedures, listening to my concerns, both physical and financial, and then miraculously making my dreams come true!It is rare to find a person these days, especially in the field of medicine, who, as I put it, ‘doesn’t have his hand on the door knob’ the whole time that you are in his office. Furthermore, to find someone as dedicated to his or her craft and committed to the well being, safety and happiness of another person is incredible.
Dr. Summers was recommended to me by a friend who had breast implants and a tummy tuck at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center. She was delighted with the results. When she learned that I was interested in some facial work, she immediately told me that the best cosmetic surgeon in town is Adam Summers. She showed me the work he had done for her and I couldn’t believe how incredible she looked. I couldn’t even find her scars. I asked around some more and it turns out that Dr. Summers has quite a reputation for facelift surgery and is one of the few real experts for injections around the face. After my visit with him today, I had to let everyone know that if you are interested in any type of cosmetic procedure or surgery, you MUST visit Dr. Summers at his beautiful medical spa. He offers a complimentary appointment and was right on time. He spent an entire hour with me reviewing my concerns. Although it was late in the day and I know he had been working all day, he was kind and funny (and cute!) and made me feel very comfortable. I had some injections done and I look great. No, I look better than great! Truly, I’m thrilled with the results. This was the first time I had ever had anything done, and Dr. Summers made sure I was comfortable and that it was painless and that I looked just the way I wanted!

Endermologie is an FDA approved medical therapy to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Endermologie primarily enhances lymphatic drainage while stimulating circulation. These combined effects can improve the quality and suppleness of the skin. In order for this treatment to be most effective, a proper diet and exercise must be incorporated. With Endermologie treatments at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center Medical Spa, the majority of women treated experience a significant reduction in the appearance of cellulite and a reduction in their circumferential measurements.
In appropriate patients, substantial improvements can be seen after a series of Endermologie treatments. The treatments are especially effective for individuals who are considering liposuction or who have recently had liposuction. Patients with very loose skin may not be ideal candidates for the procedure. We will take “before” and “after” photos to review the changes you experience.
Available at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center Medical Spa. Endermologie has been cleared by the FDA to “provide temporary reductions in the appearance of cellulite and circumferential body measurements of cellulite treated areas, increase local blood circulation, relax muscles locally, and relieve minor muscle aches and pains.”
Many patients begin to see a decrease in the appearance of cellulite after four to six 30-minute Endermologie sessions. A complete course of treatments generally involves two sessions per week for eight weeks. Monthly maintenance sessions are recommended following completion of the initial series of treatments.
During each Endermolgie session, you will wear a “large” size pantyhose that can be pulled up to the chest. The pantyhose covers the skin to provide maximal comfort and to ensure cleanliness. The Endermologie treatment head is applied to the area to be treated and mechanical rollers massage the tissue to stretch cellulite fibers and improve lymphatic drainage while simultaneous negative pressure enhances circulation.
As the treatment head glides over the skin, precisely controlled pressure is applied to manipulate the skin and sub-dermal tissues. “Vacuum massage physically manipulates the collagen fibers and connective tissue and increase metabolism to the treated area through increased local blood circulation. This results in a smoother skin texture, thus reducing the appearance of cellulite.” Dr. James E. Pickens, M.D., F.A.C.S.
Many clients at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center Medical Spa have described their Endermologie treatments as invigorating and pleasant. The treatments can be easily customized to suit your comfort level. Endermologie treatments are not designed to be painful and if you are feeling discomfort you should inform us so adjustments can be made.
Frequently Asked Questions About Endermologie:
Click on a question below to see the answer.
Because cellulite is a “mechanical” problem, we utilize Endermolgie (which is a mechanical solution) for reducing cellulite. Endermologie does not rely on unproven creams or injections. Rather, Endermolgie is an FDA approved therapy that uses revolutionary vacuum massage technology which is proven to smooth and tighten the skin while improving circulation.
Patients undergoing Endermologie should commit to an initial series of 16-20 treatments. Typically, these are performed twice weekly for 8-10 weeks. No more than one 7-day break should be taken during the initial series. There are 10 different levels of treatment and this is adjusted based on individual preference – higher levels may be uncomfortable but can induce changes more quickly. Most patients begin to notice changes after the first month of therapy. Subsequent maintenance treatments may be performed 2-4 times monthly.
Mild swelling and some tenderness in the treated area may occur. Bruising and discomfort are very uncommon. Typically, patients feel both relaxed and energized following the Endermolgie treatment. There are no restrictions on activities following the treatment. Endermologie treatments may be combined with massage for an additional fee.
Your results may be more dramatic if Endermologie is incorporated into an overall healthy lifestyle. This includes moderate exercise, a healthy diet and drinking plenty of water – approximately 2-3 litres per day.
With regular maintenance Endermologie treatments (2-4 monthly) and a healthy lifestyle, the beneficial results of Endermologie should remain. However, hormonal changes, weight fluctuations and environmental exposures can affect the silhouette and skin tone. If detrimental changes reoccur, the initial Endermologie series may be repeated to help restore the desired contour and skin tone.
