Cellfina is an FDA-approved, minimally-invasive procedure designed to minimize the dimpled appearance associated with cellulite on the buttocks and thighs of adult females. Cellulite dimples can be a major source of embarrassment, even though over 95% of women have them.
While we sometimes associate cellulite with excess weight, the facts are that regardless of weight, level of physical activity or BMI, cellulite can affect many women. Exercise and diet may not be enough to treat the appearance of cellulite dimpling. So, if you want to minimize the appearance of dimpling and feel confident again, it’s time to discover Cellfina at El Paso Cosmetic Surgery.
Causes of Cellulite
Cellulite is caused by connective bands underneath the skin tissue, which forces fat to the surface of the skin. These tight bands pull down the skin, creating visible dimples. The idea behind Cellfina is simple – by breaking up these bands of fat, the pressure will be released, thus minimizing the amount of fat that’s being pushed up to the skin.
Candidates for Cellfina
Cellfina is ideal for candidates who are committed to a healthy diet and exercise regimen but are still having trouble with cellulite. Dr. Sozer or Dr. Phillips will evaluate you during a consultation to determine if Cellfina is the right treatment for you.
You may also be a good candidate if:
- You are an adult woman who is bothered by cellulite
- Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic goals for what Cellfina can accomplish
Cellfina breaks up the pressure by using a minimally invasive, needle size devise that quickly releases the connective bands. The procedure itself may take as little as 45 minutes to perform, making it a great treatment option for clients who are ready to rock shorts and swimsuits.
Cellfina can be combined with other procedures such as liposuction and Brazilian butt lifts.
Treatment Recovery and Results
There is limited downtime with Cellfina. Most patients may be able to resume their normal activities within 24-48 hours.
Results are practically immediate and improve over the course of six to twelve weeks. Additionally, results can last over three years. According to a satisfaction study done by Cellfina, 85% of patients were satisfied within the first three months, 94% satisfied within one year, and 93% after three years.
Risks and Complications
Side effects are minimal; most clients can expect some minor bruising, tenderness, and swelling at the treatment site for a week. Drainage may be present for the first 24-48 hours. Dr. Sozer will discuss any possible risks in detail during your consultation and will be sure to answer any questions or concerns that may arise.
