Thank you for your question.
Cellfina is an FDA approved minimally invasive procedure that reduces the appearance of cellulite for at least two years on the buttocks and back of the thighs of women.
It works by releasing the internal bands that cause the cellulite dimpling and so we have not seen any fat atrophy. You should not see much of a difference with weight gain or loss but this also has not been studied.
Other areas of the body with dimpling, it is important to make sure it is truly cellulite before treatment.
It is common to have swelling bruising and firmness after the procedure. This can last for a few weeks.
It is different than Cellulaze which is a laser.
If you have had previous poor results with cellulaze, you can still do Cellfina.
Cellfina has shown 100% noticeable improvement and 96% satisfaction in all patients at 2 years.
Cellfina is designed to be a one time procedure.
It can be used on women with all skin types but caution should be taken if theres a history of keloiding.
It can also be combined with other treatments such as Thermi or
Ulthera if skin tightening is needed.
We have done Sculpsure and Coolsculpting if fat reduction is wanted, but its best to wait 3 months to see the results before proceeding.
It can also be done at the same time as other procedures such as liposuction and BBL or as a stand alone procedure in the office.
Since Cellfina outcomes can be based on technique and experience, please see a board certified plastic surgeon that specializes body contouring to see if Cellfina or other treatments are available to meet your goals.
Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
Treatment with the Cellfina System involves releasing (cutting) the tethering bands underneath the skin that cause dimpling. After the procedure, there is an initial period of swelling. Fluid accumulation occurs and is a normal response as new tissue is being formed. As the body heals, results improve and patient satisfaction increases. The skin will appear smoother in as little as three days. To see how Cellfina can help you, consult a board-certified plastic surgeon who offers this state-of-the-art technology. Good luck in your research!
Cellfina gets better and better
You ask a very insightful question. Once the septa are cut the release is instant and probably permanent. However, there is swelling of the tissue for days to weeks. Also, the tissue above and below the cuts may shift slightly as it heals back together which may result in slight changes from day to day. Once the healing is complete, however, the results are fantastic.

Cellfina- Long Term Results
Cellfina directly releases the bands that cause the dimpling cellulite. There will be some swelling and bruising which will usually resolve within two weeks. As the swelling goes away the contour in the treated area will improve. Most of our patients begin to see results within three days after the procedure. The body will produce collagen in the treated areas and this is what provides the long term gradual improvement. It is very impressive to see the patient satisfaction rates increase as time passes, with satisfaction at 2 years after treatment at 96%.
