Thank you for your question.
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.
#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.

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 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.

Treatment options for cellulite
Cellfina is a good option for small focal areas of cellulite. For more diffuse areas of cellulite, I would recommend you learn more about Cellulaze - the FDA approved one
time definitive treatment for cellulite. Cellulaze utilizes a 1440 nm
wavelength laser to accomplish 3 things: 1) melt away fat bulging out 2)
break up fibrous septae (attachments) that create the indentations and
3) help thicken the dermis (skin) to prevent future recurrence. The
procedure can take between 60-90 minutes and can be completed under
local or just IV sedation (depending on the length of your procedure and
number of areas being treated). To see your final results takes between
3-6 months. You can visit the cellulaze . com website to learn more
about the procedure. Best of luck! Dr. Basu
What are the most effective treatment for small patches of cellulite?
There is only one truly effective and proven lasting
cellulite treatment out there, and that is CELLFINA. All of the other lotions,
potions, creams, treatments, radio frequency devices, including Cellulaze, are
at best, mediocre, and, in many cases, completely worthless. Cellulaze is a
laser-based procedure that has a much higher complication rate, as well as a
much lower patient satisfaction rate, so that answer is pretty clear. CELLFINA
is the only cellulite treatment that has a proven track record of 96% patient
satisfaction at 2 years post treatment. Nothing else is even remotely as
effective as Cellfina. I have attached a link to my website, explaining
how this remarkable system works. There are patient testimonials and schematics
reviewing the details of this remarkable breakthrough treatment. Thank you for
your good question.
If you truly have cellulite, cellulaze may be a good option for you.
Cellulaze uses a laser under the skin to attack the anatomic causes of
cellulite. It is a minimally invasive procedure that takes 1-2 hours and
can be safely done under local or just IV sedation. It is an FDA
approved treatment for cellulite and requires only one treatment. Hope
this is helpful.

Cellulite is caused by connective bands woven throughout the fat that pull down the skin, creating dimpling seen on the skin’s surface. It is genetic in nature. Some people can loosen the tension on these bands by decreasing the amount of fat between the skin and the underlying fascial connection. Others just have cellulite and are skinny.
The Cellfina procedure is a minimally invasive one that numbs the area around the dimple on your buttocks or thighs, and then treats the connective bands woven throughout the fat that pull down the skin, creating dimpling seen on the skin’s surface. The Cellfina cellulite procedure works by precisely treating these tethered bands, causing them to fully release. Similar to a rubberband under tension, once released, the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out in as little as three days.
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.
Cellulite cannot be caused from sitting for long periods of time. It is caused by many factors such as genetics, diet, hormones, dehydration and total body fat. Lotions and creams will not help much. I would suggest VIORA radio frequency. It shrinks the fat cells and releases them through the lymphatic drainage system. You will need more than one VIORA treatment to achieve maximum results but you will notice smoother skin and decreased cellulite after just one session. You may call to make an appointment for a complimentary consultation in my office. Good luck to you.
