Introduction to Cellulite Treatment

While many people try to maintain their weight through proper diet and exercise, there are times in which cellulite seems to stick around no matter what you try. Cellulite is the culprit behind the lumpy and dimpled appearance in particular parts of the body, such as the thighs, stomach, and buttocks. Liposuction is a very popular method of getting rid of this nuisance, but recently, there have been scientific advancements that allow for other options. KH Plastic Surgery in New York City & Long Island offers the Cellfina® System that allows for long-lasting results without surgical intervention. Please continue reading this page for information on how Cellfina can improve your body’s appearance.

What is Cellulite Treatment?

The Cellfina® System is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least three years – the longest FDA-cleared duration for a cellulite treatment. An outpatient procedure offered through a qualified physician, Cellfina combines a proven approach with innovative technology to treat the primary structural cause of cellulite. The result is a smooth look that gives patients the confidence to wear a bathing suit and higher hemlines.

The Cellfina® System treats the primary structural cause of cellulite – the connective bands woven throughout fat in the thighs and buttocks. These tight bands pull down the skin, creating the puckering you see on the surface of the skin. Similar to a rubber band under tension, once released, the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out.

Some of the most common areas for successful Cellulite Reduction treatment include:

  • Abdomen
  • Butt
  • Hips
  • Legs
  • Stomach
  • Thighs

What to Expect on the Day of Cellulite Treatment

Cellfina does not involve an operating room or general anesthesia. It relies on a minimally invasive, small-needle-sized device to treat the cellulite-causing bands just beneath the surface of the skin.

In just one 45-minute treatment, Cellfina significantly improves the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs.

Cellulite Treatment Recovery

There is limited downtime associated with Cellfina. Some patients experience initial soreness and tenderness, but these side effects resolve quickly with time.

Patients in the pivotal study showed significant improvement within three days after the treatment. Three years after treatment, 100 percent of Cellfina® Patients had noticeable improvement on the Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale (GAIS). Results from Cellfina last at least three years – the longest FDA-cleared duration for a cellulite treatment.

Cellfina® Patients report high rates of satisfaction with their treatment results. At three months, 85 percent of patients were satisfied, 94 percent at one year, 96 percent at two years, and 93 percent at three years surpassing the patient satisfaction rates of other leading cellulite treatments.*
