Cellfina/Cellulite Treatment/Ultherapy/Thermi RF/Body Contouring/ Hi Definition Procedures

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, Dr Schwartz  Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Director-Beverly Hills Breast and Body Institute #RealSelf100Surgeon


Cellfina has a very high patient satisfaction rate with FDA clearance and results lasting 2 years after treatment. It is a minimally invasive procedure that treats the structural cause of cellulite, the connective bands woven throughout the fat. I would suggest an in person exam to determine candidacy.Dr. Kathleen Morno

Treating buttock cellulite

Cellfina is a relatively new procedure to treat the bands causing cellulite. Under local anesthesia, these bands are cut with a fine needle allowing the skin to pop back into a normal position. Patient satisfaction rates 3 years after Cellfina are well over 90%. Obtain a consultation with a physician experienced in Cellfina to undergo and in person exam and more detailed discussion.

Cellulite -- Vaser Smooth, ThermiRF, Cellfina, Fat Transfer, Subcision

The best treatment available for cellulite at this time is Cellfina. We combine it with other surgical (fat transfer, Cellulaze) non invasive options (z wave) to get even better outcome. I suggest seeing an expert. Best, Dr. Emer

Buttock cellulite

There is a new, fantastic procedure that cures cellulite, finally, called Cellfina. It is minimally invasive with very little downtime, and doesn't take that long. It's been out for a few years, and we have been seeing amazing results that are long lasting. I have seen a lot of other things on the market that don't work, but this one definitely does. It cuts the bands that cause the dimpling associated with cellulite.
