Wanting to look good year-round but even more so during bathing suit season is something that many women strive for. Unfortunately for most women though, the battle against cellulite is an ongoing endeavor. Cellulite is an extremely common condition that most adult women have to deal with. For some women, the presence of cellulite is due to genetics and hormones which make it tough for them to smooth out those unsightly dimples on their buttocks, backs, and thighs. These dimples, which are caused by a pulling down on the skin by tight bands under the skins surface, can now be treated by a new FDA cleared procedure called Cellfina™.
Cellfina™ is the only FDA-cleared procedure that is clinically proven to reduce and improve the appearance of cellulite. This minimally invasive cellulite procedure has shown the ability to remove the dimples caused by cellulite for up to three years. The results are beautifully smooth and dimple free backs, thighs, and buttocks allowing patients the confidence to look fabulous in their lingerie and swim suits.
Treatment Areas Include:
- Lower Back
- Sides or Flanks
The New York Center for Facial, Plastic, and Laser Surgery are pleased to now offer this procedure to patients who are looking to treat their stubborn cellulite.
Cellfina™ Cellulite Treatment
Cellfina works by targeting the underlying fibrous cords beneath the dimpled areas that are causing the appearance of cellulite. The Cellfina™ system releases these bands which reduces the sight of those dreaded dimples and unwanted cellulite.
Dr. Jacono's board certified plastic surgery associates will begin the cellulite treatment by first numbing the areas to be treated. Then we will use the Cellfina™ system to smooth out the treatment area by releasing those tight bands. Treatment times will vary depending upon the number of areas being treated, but generally it is a fairly quick procedure. Most patients are fully recovered within a few days.

Cellfina™ Cellulite Treatment Recovery
Recovery after having cellulite treatment with Cellfina™ is very easy. Patients can go about their normal daily activities but may want to take it easy for the first 24 hours following the treatment. While there are no serious adverse side effects associated with the Cellfina™ treatments, some patients may experience some bruising and tenderness at the treatment sites. The bruising will fade away on its own over the next few weeks. To learn more about this procedure and safety information visit cellfina.com/IFU.
