Recovery from Cellfina is quite easy.
Normal moderate consumption of alcohol before or after Cellfina treatment is OK. The majority of women resume normal activities within 1-2 days with the exception of biking and very aggressive running. You can travel within a couple of days as well. We do recommend that you keep wearing your compression garment for couple of weeks and drink plenty of fluids for the first couple of days.
After treatment with the Cellfina System, patients have very minimal downtime. During the first 12 hours, the anesthetic solution from the procedure will seep out of the puncture sites. Patients may experience some bruising, soreness, and swelling. Alcohol should be avoided both before and after treatment with Cellfina as alcohol can increase the risk for bleeding and lead to more bruising and swelling. While patients are able to drive themselves home after the procedure, it is best to wait a couple days before travelling on an airplane. It is important to consult your board-certified plastic surgeon regarding any questions or concerns before having treatment with Cellfina. Good luck in your research!

Alcohol is best avoided in the days before and after treatment to minimize bruising and swelling. We also advise patients to avoid strenuous exercise for 2 weeks following treatment. Traveling is typically okay a few days after treatment.
It is always recommended to follow the post procedure care instructions provided by your physician. Cellfina is an excellent way to improve the appearance of cellulite with fairly minimal recovery time. Many of our patients have returned to work the day after treatment. Since the treatment is performed with only local anesthesia, patients are able to drive themselves to and from the procedure.
