What is QWO Cellulite Reduction?
Regardless of how fit and healthy you are, unfortunately, there's nothing you can do to stop or remove cellulite on your own. Cellulite (a fibrous tissue) builds beneath the skin, commonly around the buttocks, thighs, hips, and stomach, and can create a bumpy, dimpled appearance. At Plastic Surgery Group of Atlanta, Drs. John Connors and Alexandra Hart are proud to be two of the very first physicians in the Atlanta, GA area to offer QWO as a form of cellulite reduction treatment. As the first and only FDA-approved injection to treat cellulite on the buttocks, QWO can allow for visible results for the reduction of unwanted cellulite. Years ago, cellulite was nearly impossible to successfully treat, but now, you can enjoy great, visible results from QWO injections at Plastic Surgery Group of Atlanta. Learn more about QWO by scheduling a consultation at our Atlanta facility today.

"While I am only 6 weeks post op (tummy tuck and liposuction of back/waist), I couldn’t be happier with my results. The care I have received from Dr. Connors and all the nurses has been top notch. They listen. They care. I also highly recommend staying overnight after surgery. It’s so peaceful and comfortable, not to mention a load off your mind knowing you are getting the correct care for your procedure. I can’t rave enough about Dr. Connors and his staff."- L.D. / Google / Jan 03, 2022

Who is a candidate for cellulite reduction?
QWO is effective and safe for most individuals at Plastic Surgery Group of Atlanta. However, you might not qualify if you have an infection, loose skin, diabetes, or varicose veins, or if you are taking certain medications. Those who have a bleeding problem or who are pregnant should not receive QWO injections. Ideal candidates for QWO treatments:
- Are at a healthy, stable weight
- Have moderate to severe cellulite on their buttocks
- Have toned skin
How does Qwo Work?
Before your procedure, one of our skilled physicians or nurse practitioners may ask you to stand still while using a marker to identify your treatment areas. Next, local anesthesia will be used if desired by the patient. The QWO injections will then be administered to the targeted areas. The entire procedure can typically be performed in about ten minutes or less, depending on the number of injections needed. Following your treatment, you will be able to return home as normal but will need to follow specific aftercare instructions provided by our team.
What Can I Expect aFter Qwo cellulite reduction?
In most circumstances, you can return to your normal activities the day following your procedure. However, we highly recommend you refrain from vigorous exercise for a couple of days to allow the treatment area the opportunity to recover. Side effects of QWO can include swelling, bruising, and tenderness at the injection sites. These symptoms are not typically severe and fade in less than a week. QWO requires three treatments performed 21 days apart and is available as a package at Plastic Surgery Group of Atlanta. It usually takes around ten weeks to experience visible results following QWO injections. Patients who maintain a healthy weight often yield the longest-lasting results.

What is cellulite?
Cellulite is the lumpy, dimpled flesh that usually appears on the thighs, hips, butt, and stomach. While cellulite is more common in women, it can also be found in men. The cause of cellulite is still unclear, but many doctors think it is fat swollen with toxins that create ripples on the surface of the skin, which may be caused by genetics, thin skin, and aging. Cellulite can be found on thin and overweight bodies, and while it is not considered a serious medical condition, it is considered undesirable and unattractive.
How long are QWO treatments?
Most treatments take only about ten minutes to complete, and there is no recovery time required. This means you can easily schedule appointments over your lunch break. Optimal results will occur around ten weeks following your injections.
Will I need additional QWO treatments?
In order to preserve and maintain your desired results, you may want to undergo touch-up QWO treatments after the initial series of injections. During your consultation at Plastic Surgery Group of Atlanta, our team will talk with you about your specific treatment plan and determine the best course of treatment for you.
