Can you have Cellfina performed on the WHOLE front of thighs and inner thighs?

Cellfina is best for discrete lesions, NOT whole thigh
Pelleve for front of your thighs
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. It is best used for dimples.
The waviness over the front of the thighs benefits more from skin tightening procedures.

Cellfina for front of the thighs?
Cellfina is the newest technology on the market that allows your dimples (cellulite) to be removed consistently by cutting the fibrous bands and releasing the dimpled skin. Yes, cellfina can be performed on the whole area, however I recommend consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon to make sure it is cellulite and not skin laxity.

Cellulite on the whole front and inner thighs
Great question. Many people have your problem of wavy dimply skin on the front of their thighs. Cellfina is specifically for actual dimples in the skin caused by fibrous cords that tether the skin down which is common on the buttocks and upper outer thighs. Some people do have dimples on fronts as well and they can be treated with cellfina. However, what you are describing sounds more like skin laxity. Skin laxity can be treated with a variety of skin tightening procedures. My favorite for this is Ultherapy which uses microfocused ultrasound and is very effective.
Cellfina is also for thighs!
Cellulite, Vaser Smooth, Thermi RF, Cellfina, Fat Transfer, Cellulaze, Subcision, Dimpling, Sculpsure, Coolsculpting
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.

Cellfina not for wavy skin at front of thighs
Rather, one of the many nonsurgical skin tightening procedures available today may be a better option for improvement of your condition.
I recommend that you have a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who offers all of these procedures to determine which will be most appropriate for you.
Best of luck!
Cellfina treats cellulite per dimple of the thighs and buttocks
If one has a thigh that has so much cellulite that all the dimples are only separated by a half inch, or so, then all of them can be treated but it may mean a longer treatment session, or separating the treatment in different appointments. When treating larger numbers of dimples, the bruising and swelling may be greater.
