Cellulite is an issue for millions of women, causing lumpy and dimpled skin on the thighs, hips, buttocks and belly that is largely unresponsive to diet and exercise. Often embarrassing and unsightly, these subcutaneous fat deposits cannot be treated through plastic surgery methods such as liposuction, and home methods including massage and topical creams never live up to their promises. This can make cellulite a persistent and troubling issue for women of all shapes and sizes and at nearly any stage of life – but our NJ plastic surgeons have a safe and effective solution: Cellfina™.
If you live in New Jersey or Staten Island and are interested in a proven effective and long-lasting cellulite treatment, please contact Associates in Plastic Surgery to schedule a consultation. Appointments can be made at any of our NJ cosmetic surgery offices by calling (732) 548-3200 as well.
Cellfina is a minimally invasive treatment that is clinically proven to smooth lumpy and dimpled skin by addressing the primary structural causes of cellulite. Unlike other cellulite reduction methods, Cellfina requires only one treatment – and results may be visible in as few as three days. What’s more, patient surveys have found a 96% satisfaction rate even two years after the initial treatment, making Cellfina the longest-lasting cellulite treatment available today.
Cellfina uses proprietary technology to release tension in the connective bands woven throughout fat in the thighs and buttocks. Once tension in these bands is released, skin is no longer pulled taught over fat deposits, allowing for a smooth and cellulite-free appearance. Currently, Cellfina is FDA approved for the treatment of cellulite on the thighs and buttocks alone, but other areas with cellulite – such as the abdomen and hips – may respond favorably to the treatment as well. This is something that can be discussed in greater detail during your initial consultation with one of our New Jersey plastic surgeons.
While Cellfina is minimally invasive, some women may experience initial soreness or tenderness. These and similar side-effects are short lived and should correct within a few days after your treatment. It may be advisable to take a day or two to rest following your cellulite treatment for optimal comfort, though resuming normal activities is typically okay within 12 to 24 hours. How to deal with any post-treatment discomfort will be discussed in detail during your cellulite treatment consultation.
We are pleased to offer this effective and minimally invasive cellulite treatment at all of our New Jersey plastic surgery centers. Please call us at (732) 548-3200 to schedule a consultation and learn if Cellfina the best option for your needs.
