Cellfina Experience?

Hi doctors...I'm looking for someone in Florida who has a decent amount of experience with this procedure. I do understand that it's fairly new and hasn't been around that long, but am still hoping to find someone that does this on a weekly basis (if that is even practical?). Thanks in advance.

Far more important than the technique is the skill and experience of your plastic surgeon. Choose your surgeon rather than the technique and let them explain why one technique may be better than another.

Thank you for your question.  We would be more than happy to help you.  We were i believe the second practice in South Florida to have Cellfina, and in the intervening 26 weeks or so we have done more than 20 Cellfina treatments or approximately one per week.  We have seen remarkable results with the procedure and would love to help you.  Regards, Dr. Matt Elias

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. 

Take care,

This is so new that to find practices doing more than 1 or 2 a week will be difficult.  The good news is that the treatments works.  Avoid having areas treat where the skin has laxity.

This one-time, minimally invasive procedure takes only 45 minutes to perform, but the results last for a minimum of two years. Cellfina has the longest lasting results of any current cellulite treatment. Its approval rate is over 93% on RealSelfit may be worthwhile to pay for airfare if you have no one local with experience
