Is it safe to get Cellfina while breastfeeding? If I continue to lose weight, will the results change?

Do not place your baby at risk for a cosmetic procedure
Treatment of your cellulite with Cellfina will require the administration of local anesthetics and possibly some pain medications. These will be present, in some concentration, in your breast milk. Also, you are not at your desired weight, so delineation of your dimples will not be totally accurate. I would strongly suggest you wait a little longer so both yu and your baby are safe.
It is best for patients to wait until after breastfeeding to have treatment with Cellfina. Pregnancy and breastfeeding cause a woman’s body to go through many changes. As a woman is breastfeeding, weight loss, as well as many other changes, occur. Several factors contribute to the development of cellulite. Weight loss often reduces cellulite appearance and should not affect the results of Cellfina. However, it is recommended for patients to be at an ideal, stable weight before having treatment with Cellfina. Consult a board-certified plastic surgeon regarding the best treatment plan for you. Good luck and congratulations on the new addition to your family!

Breast feeding and cellfina
This is a great question. While breast feeding and a ten pound weight loss shouldn't effect the areas that will have been treated with Cellfina, other areas of cellulite may develop when you are done breast feeding. There are multiple factors that contribute to the development of cellulite (genetic predisposition, body type, skin tone, etc). Hormone changes have also been implicated as a factor contributing to the development of cellulite. While you are breast feeding, your hormone levels are in a particular balance that will change once you stop breast feeding. If you were to undergo treatment with Cellfina while you are breast feeding, the treated areas should not recur. However, new areas of cellulite can always arise after treatment, particularly after a shift in hormone balance. If you are looking for the most efficient way to treat the largest amount of cellulite in a single session, it may pay to wait until you are done breast feeding, so you can be as confident as possible in identifying your "problem areas" prior to undergoing treatment. It is essential to meet with a surgeon who is adequately trained and, more importantly, exercises good judgement when it comes to patience in decision making. Good luck!
