What is Cellfina?
For many women, dimples caused by cellulite can make wearing a bathing suit or certain clothes very challenging. Cellfina is a minor procedure performed by Dr. Khanna that nips the bands of tissue under the skin that are causing the dimples on the buttocks or thighs. Using local freezing similar to a dental visit, the area is frozen and a very small blade is used to cut the bands without any large incisions. The result is smoother looking buttocks and thighs.
Is It Right For Me?
Cellfina is designed for cellulite dimples. It will not improve fat pockets, stretch marks or loose skin. It is best to have a consult and assessment to see if Cellfina is right for you.
What To Expect?
Cellfina takes an hour or so to perform. On the day of the procedure, Dr. Khanna will mark the areas to be treated with you in a private room. You are then taken into the Operating Room (you are not put to sleep for the procedure) and Dr. Khanna will use local anaesthetic to numb the treatment areas. Using a special guide, she will then use a very small blade to gently nip away the bands. There can be minor leakage of fluid (related to the local freezing) for a day or two and a support garment such as a bike short type girdle is recommended for comfort for the first two to four weeks. Most people go back to work the next day and normal activities such as exercise can commence in approximately 2 weeks after treatment.
