Cellfina: affects of weight gain and weight loss
Cellfina: affects of weight gain and weight lossThere are no studies to my knowledge, but in general , changes in weight always affect fat collections, cellulite and laxity of skin. This is true of liposuction or any cosmetic surgical and non surgical procedure. These will also be affected by aging, pregnancy and other health issues that change the integrity of the skin and underling support structures.

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.

Weight gain or loss
Weight gain or weight loss should not affect the outcomes and the results have been seen for over 2 years (if not more). It is truly a really exciting new technology that most women can benefit from.
The Results Of Cellfina Should Not Be Affected By Weight Fluctuations
Cellfina in Saint Louis
Cellfina improves cellulite by treating the dimples caused by connective tissue puckering the skin down into the fat. Dimples may look deeper or more shallow depending on whether the surrounding fat is thicker or thinner. Minor weight fluctuations associated with a change in the fat thickness should not affect the results of Cellfina. It is probably too soon to say for sure how large weight fluctuations would affect results. Similar to body contouring procedures, it is always advisable to maintain a healthy weight before and after these procedures.
