What Is Cellulite and Why Do I Have It?
Most women have cellulite. It occurs when fibrous tissue bands pull the skin down over fat deposits creating a lumpy, dimpled appearance on the skin. Having cellulite doesn’t mean you’re fat. Many of our cellulite treatment patients are a healthy weight. Cellulite can happen to men or women, overweight or at a healthy weight.
We carefully choose each treatment we offer to ensure maximum benefit and safety for our patients. We love Cellfina® for cellulite treatment because:
-It targets the underlying cause of cellulite (fibrous bands).
-It is minimally invasive and non-surgical.
-No heavy anesthetics are necessary.
-Only one treatment is needed.
-Results are long-lasting.
-Patients return to work and other activities quickly.
Cellfina® Works Better than Topical Creams for Treating Cellulite- Here’s Why
Have you tried topical cellulite treatments? They offer big promises on the bottle, but when put to the test, often disappoint. Cellulite isn’t a topical skin problem, so topical treatments aren’t going to be effective. Cellulite starts deep within the skin as fibrous bands pull tissue down.
This treatment works underneath the skin’s outer layer, at the source of cellulite. It releases the fibrous bands, smoothing out the dimples. This is one of the most effective treatments for cellulite we’ve ever seen, and we’re excited to offer Cellfina® in Raleigh, NC.
What to Expect from a Cellfina® Treatment
We start a Cellfina® treatment by carefully marking the dimples on the thighs and buttocks. Once the dimples are marked, you’ll lie down, and we’ll prep the treatment area. The Cellfina® device pulls the skin taut, and a special handpiece will precisely cut the fibrous tissue band. We numb the area before treatment with a lidocaine and saline solution to minimize discomfort. After we release one fibrous band, we’ll move onto the next until each marked dimple has been treated and released.
After we treat all of your dimples, you’ll be ready to return home. Most patients are back to their regular activities quickly, often later that same day. You’ll need to wear a compression garment for a few weeks. This helps the body to heal quickly and properly, improving your results. After treatment, you may experience bruising and soreness. These symptoms are temporary and typically resolve in a few days.
Am I a Good Candidate for Cellulite Treatment?
At Diehl Plastic Surgery we want you to be delighted with your results. Although Cellfina® is an excellent fit for many patients, it isn’t always the right procedure. Good candidates for this treatment:
-Are close to their ideal body weight, typically within 10 pounds.
-Have cellulite on the buttocks and/or thighs.
-Do not have skin laxity.
If Cellfina® isn’t the best procedure for you, we’ll recommend another option. Many of our patients achieve excellent results with SmartLipo, especially those patients that want to combine cellulite treatment with body contouring.

Diet, Exercise, and CoolSculpting®- What’s the Link?
You’ve probably heard that diet and exercise are the keys to your best body. This may be true in theory, but many of our patients find that losing fat is more complicated than that. They eat right and exercise regularly, but still struggle with stubborn fat, located in common trouble spots like the love handles, abdomen, or thighs. They aren’t looking to lose weight but want to lose fat.
CoolSculpting® is a potential solution to your bikini body woes. This treatment uses intense cold to crystalize and destroy fat cells. Since the CoolSculpting® applicator is placed over the treatment area, we can target specific fat pockets, unlike exercise that produces a whole-body result. After treatment, your body will begin to naturally process and eliminate the treated fat, permanently removing those stubborn fat cells from your body.
CoolSculpting® isn’t an alternative to the healthy practices of diet and exercise. It enhances your hard work. Eat right, go for a run, and if trouble spots remain after your best efforts, let us help.
5 Reasons to Choose CoolSculpting® This Summer
Is CoolSculpting® the key to a better summer body? Come in for treatment this summer and discover some of the top benefits of this popular procedure:
No Downtime– Summer is a busy time for many of our patients. With CoolSculpting®, you can receive treatment and return to daily activities immediately, no downtime necessary. Recovery symptoms are typically minor and include tenderness, bruising, and mild swelling. These don’t usually interfere with your daily activities.
Noticeable Fat Reduction– Does CoolSculpting® actually work? Clinical studies and our own experience say it does. Patients typically experience a 20-25% reduction of fat in the treated area with one treatment. Want better results? A second treatment can be performed several weeks later.
Long Lasting Results– CoolSculpting® destroys fat cells and your body eliminates them through natural metabolic processes. Fat cells don’t regenerate. If you maintain your weight, results should last. Most patients start to see their results in a couple weeks with the most dramatic changes visible 1-3 months after treatment.
Targeted Fat Removal– Where do you struggle with unwanted fat? We can freeze fat from head to toe. Popular treatment areas include: abdomen, arms, chin (double chin), bra roll area, flanks (love handles), knees, inner and outer thighs, banana rolls, etc. If you want to treat more than one area, we have two machines and offer DualSculpting, or the treatment of two areas simultaneously.
Short 35-Minute Treatment– You’ll receive your treatment in our comfortable Raleigh, NC plastic surgery office. We’ll get you in and out, typically in under an hour. The treatment itself takes about 35 minutes.

What Happens During a CoolSculpting® Treatment?
Do you want to rock that bikini with confidence this summer without surgery? Call us to schedule your CoolSculpting® treatment at Diehl Plastic Surgery.
When you come in for your appointment, we’ll take you into a comfortable treatment room. A specialized gel pad will be placed onto one of your trouble spots. The CoolSculpting® applicator is then placed on top of this pad. At first, you’ll feel intense cold, but the sensation fades quickly as the area naturally numbs itself.
Sit back and relax. You won’t have to do anything but wait as the treatment progresses. Many patients read a book or use their mobile devices.
When the treatment is complete, usually about 35 minutes later, you’ll be ready to resume your regular activities. Many patients head right back to work.
Your body will begin to process the treated fat cells, and you’ll see your results start to appear in just a few weeks.
At Diehl Plastic Surgery all of our treatments are performed by our CoolSculpting® specialists, Lynn and Sharon. They have both have advanced training on the best practices for the procedure and have been performing this treatment since 2012 .
