With Cellfina®, smoother, firmer skin is possible after just one treatment, with results that last!
A healthy lifestyle, diet and exercise can keep our bodies svelte and skin glowing. But cellulite is the worst! This irregular, lumpy skin appearance affects most of us sooner or later, but since it’s structural—not a matter of too much fat—cellulite is notoriously difficult to treat. Until now.
We’re excited to offer Cellfina, the first and only treatment FDA cleared to reduce cellulite for at least 3 years, at Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads. Unlike creams, massage, or even most lasers, Cellfina treats the cause of cellulite, not just the appearance, for long-lasting results in as little as one treatment—you’ll be ready to sport smoother, firmer shorts-ready skin within days.
How does Cellfina work?
Cellfina is a minimally-invasive procedure that reduces the lumpy, puckered areas of skin (a.k.a. cellulite) by releasing tough, fibrous connective tissue cords called septae. These cords are normal and connect our skin to the tissues below. Inconveniently, however, septae tend to tighten in certain areas of the body, such as the thighs and buttocks, pulling down on the skin and causing the puckered, lumpy “cottage cheesy” appearance of cellulite.
Cellfina is a unique system that inserts a tiny blade just a few millimeters beneath the skin to mechanically releases these cords. This process allows the skin to “bounce back” to a normal level, helping the treated area become smoother and firmer. Cellfina’s specially-designed vacuum device allows for quick, effective treatment without surgery or scars, and without damaging surrounding tissues.

What to expect with Cellfina in Hampton Roads
At Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, your Cellfina treatment is performed by one of our experienced, board certified plastic surgeons. After reviewing your goals, your surgeon will mark and then apply a local anesthetic to the treatment areas.
Your surgeon will then place the Cellfina device onto your skin. The device uses a vacuum-assisted mechanism to gently pull the skin upwards, allowing the tiny blade to go under the skin’s surface and release the septae. The whole process typically takes only 45 to 60 minutes to complete.
Following treatment, you can expect some mild soreness and/or bruising for a few days. Most patients resume normal activities right away, but avoid strenuous exercise for 2 to 3 days (enjoy some well-deserved R&R!). Best of all, you should notice positive improvements in as few as 3 days after your Cellfina procedure.
