Cellulite is an aesthetic issue that cannot be fully resolved with diet or exercise. Cellfina is the first minimally invasive, FDA-cleared solution to the appearance of cellulite. The treatment has been clinically proven to smooth away the dimples,
and the results of a single treatment can last for as long as three years – longer than any other cellulite treatment available. When searching for a treatment to smooth away the unsightly lumps and bumps, evaluate the practitioner, as well as the treatment.
Dr. Fechner is a leader in the field of plastic surgery, and has garnered a reputation for his ability to consistently produce excellent outcomes. As a double board-certified plastic surgeon with a great depth of knowledge and experience, and impressive credentials, you can be confident that unsightly cellulite will be treated correctly. Beyond his professional skills, he is at leading edge in new technology, including offering his patients Cellfina treatments to address unsightly cellulite.
There are fibrous bands woven through the fat in the thighs and buttocks that act like rubber bands. These bands pull the skin the skin down, causing the dimpling.
The Cellfina treatment uses a small, needle-sized device that sucks the bands just below the skin into it. This stretches the bands, so the tension is released. When the skin is no longer pulled down, the dimpling is reduced, allowing the skin to again look smoother. There is no cutting or stitches; the treatment is more like getting an injection.
Many patients see improvement in as few as 3 days after treatment, but the longevity was demonstrated by a key survey for the product, which showed patient satisfaction to be 85 percent at 3 months, 94 percent at 2 years and 96 percent at 3 years. Another study showed noticeable improvements continued over the course of 2 years.
The procedure takes 20 – 60 minutes, and the only post-treatment recommendation is that patients wear clothing such as leggings or yoga pants to compress the area.
Most patients return to their normal activity the next day; 90 percent even went out the night of the treatment and, in a study done by a group of board-certified plastic surgeons who regularly deliver Cellfina treatments, they found no one who needed narcotics or a prescription for pain medication.
