Cellulite is a common problem among women of all ages. The dimple-like bumps on the hips, thighs, or buttocks can be a source of embarrassment for many. Fortunately, there’s a non-surgical solution for the bothersome problem. It’s called Cellfina®, and it’s a limited downtime procedure that’s revolutionizing the way we treat unwanted cellulite.

At The Woodlands Plastic Surgery, we’re helping numerous women regain their self-confidence with Cellfina®. Dr. Correa works with each woman individually to help them achieve their short and long-term goals with as little downtime as possible. Say goodbye to cellulite for the long haul.

What Can You Expect from Cellfina®?

Cellfina® treatments are done on an outpatient basis with a short in-office procedure. Dr. Correa uses a specialized needle-like device to release the connective bands which hold cellulite in place. Most patients tolerate the procedure quite well with a topical numbing cream alone. Cellfina® is a non-surgical cellulite solution that doesn’t require any stitches or visible scarring. Treatments can be done in less than 45-minutes.

Immediately following your Cellfina® treatment, you may experience soreness, tenderness, swelling, and/or pinpoint bleeding. Side effects are typically short-lived and can be easily managed with over-the-counter pain medications. The majority of women who undergo the procedure are able to drive themselves home from their appointment.

Limited Downtime Cellulite Treatments

Cellfina® is considered the ideal ‘weekend treatment’. Although you’ll probably want to take a day or two off for rest and relaxation, most normal activities can quickly be resumed. Get back to work and your regular routine with minimal restrictions after just 24-72 hours. Strenuous activities such as heavy exercise should be avoided up to 1-week.

Residual swelling and bruising can last upwards of 2-weeks. However, a compression garment can be used during this time to minimize any adverse effects of your cellulite treatment. Initial results can be seen within days of treatment with continued improvement over several months.
