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.

Why Cellfina®?

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.
