I have one area on the back of my thigh that has horrible cellulite. What is the best way of getting rid of it?
Doctor Answers 9
For treating #cellulite, my office typically recommends one of three treatment plans: #Cellfina, #VelaShape III, #ThremiSmooth.
#Cellfina is the newest technology and probably most effective. It is a minimally invasive one-time procedure under local anesthetic that removes the fibrous bands under the skin that cause fat to bulge through creating the appearance of cellulite. The results are fairly #permanent.
#VelaShape and #ThermiSmooth are #non-invasive #bodyshaping products that can help reduce the appearance of your cellulite over the course of multiple sessions.
Book an in-person consultation with a #BoardCertified #PlasticSurgeon to determine which treatment plan is right for you.
Best of luck.
Cellfina / Cellulite Reduction/ Liposuction/ Skin Tightening / BBL/ High Definition Procedures
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.
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.

When it comes to reducing the appearance of cellulite, There is a newly FDA-approved product on the market called VASERsmooth.
VASERsmooth is a new accessory for the VASER Liposuction technology, which uses ultrasonic energy or high-energy sound waves to emulsify fat. Now, in addition to contouring fat, doctors can user VASER to remove signs of cellulite. Like Cellulaze, VASERsmooth uses a small, pen-shaped device to poke beneath the skin’s surface and break up fatty tissue that creates cellulite.
