Cellfina®

Tulsa Cosmetic Surgery | Cellfina®

Significant, Rapid Improvement

Unlike attempts to solve the dimple dilemma at the gym, Dr. Whitlock delivers rapid improvement to cellulite problem areas – no blood, sweat, or tears required. Significant results can be seen immediately after treatment, with limited downtime, and continued improvement in months to follow.

Lasting Results

Dr. Whitlock uses Cellfina® to target the primary structural cause for cellulite, rather than prescribing a creamy “band-aid” to slather over dimply flaws.

FAQs About Cellfina®

How does it work?

Dr. Whitlock will use the Cellfina® procedure method to release the fibrous septae under the dimpled areas of skin on the thigh and buttocks area. Similar to a rubber band under tension, once released, the treated skin bounces back to become smoother.

Am I a candidate?

Cellfina is suitable for adult women with 1) cellulite on the thigh and/or buttocks areas, 2) minimal to absent skin laxity, and 3) a BMI of under 35

What is skin laxity? Skin laxity is the loss of collagen in our skin over time, reducing elasticity. This may be caused by intrinsic factors such as natural aging, genetics, stress or weight fluctuations. Other contributing extrinsic factors might include lifestyle, sun exposure, smoking, 0r environmental toxins may also contribute.

What is BMI? BMI, or Body Mass Index, is a measurement of body fat based on your ratio of height and weight. The formula for calculating BMI is: 703 x weight in lbs. / [height in inches]2

Cellulite is a tough opponent, and until recently, one that could not be defeated effectively.  There are many miracle cures in a bottle on the market which turn out to be nothing but false promises that offer minimal, superficial improvement to moderate to severe cellulite on the buttocks and thighs.  At Whitlock Cosmetic Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, we have two options available that deliver noticeable, lasting results: Qwo and Cellfina.  Both deliver excellent results but treatments differ. The focus of this writing will be on the Cellfina System.

With the Cellfina System, you can once and for all declare victory over cellulite in just one in-office treatment.  The Cellfina® System is an FDA-cleared, minimally invasive procedure that is clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite with results lasting at least 3-years. The Cellfina treatment is performed in our office by Dr. Whitlock.  Cellfina® treats the primary structural cause of cellulite and smooths out the dimples located on the buttocks and thighs.

The best thing about Cellfina is after one treatment, patients are able to confidently wear fashions they never thought possible… shorts, mini-skirts, swimsuits, etc.  Cellfina® patients across the nation report high satisfaction rates with 93% reporting satisfaction at 3 years post-treatment.

The Cellfina® System treats the primary structural cause of  the dimples on the buttocks and thighs.  These dimples are connective bands woven throughout fat in the thighs and buttocks. These bands are very tight and pull down on the skin. This creates puckering on the surface of the skin. For a simple visual of what’s happening, picture a rubber band  under tension. Once the tension is released, the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out.  This occurs  in as little as three days. This one-time, in-office procedure can take as little as one hour to perform. Cost of treatment does vary depending on the number of areas you would like treated and the severity of your cellulite. A Cellfina quote will be prepared and given to you on the day of your consultation.  Many of Dr. Whitlock’s liposuction and Brazilian butt lift patients schedule a Cellfina System treatment to smooth their skin post surgery to experience even more amazing results.  We do offer Cellfina at a discounted price for our patients who would like to add on a Cellfina treatment once they recover from their cosmetic surgery.  We offer several financing options for this procedure.  Information about the options are available on our website. We will also review these options at your consultation when you are presented with your quote.  We understand this is an investment in YOU and want to make sure you have what you need to make an informed decision about both the Cellfina treatment and payment for the treatment.

 

What to expect during your treatment

 It’s your anticipated treatment day!  Time to say good-bye to your cellulite. By the time your Cellfina treatment day arrives, you will have already had a consultation with Dr. Whitlock where he examined your problem areas to see if you’re a good candidate for a Cellfina treatment and answered all of your questions. His assistant will have taken time to review your health history at this appointment as well.  This is followed by photos (everyone’s least favorite part of the whole experience)!

Dr. Whitlock does Cellfina treatments on Fridays. We recommend you begin taking Arnica Montana for bruising a few weeks prior to your procedure to help minimize bruising. When you arrive at our office the day of treatment, you will be taken to one of our treatment rooms where you will undress from the waist down.  At this time, the dimples on the area to be treated will be marked.  A numbing solution of medication will be injected in the problem area(s) Dr. Whitlock will be working. This treatment does not involve cutting.  It’s a minimally invasive treatment done using a small, needle-sized device. We recommend that you bring your headphones to listen to music or your favorite podcast during your Cellfina treatment to help pass the time and take your mind off the procedure.

After your Cellfina treatment is complete, you are now able to go about your day.  We do recommend that you take it easy for up to 24 hours and avoid extreme, physical activity. Yes, we are giving you an excuse to skip your workout!  Post Cellfina treatment, you may or may not experience the following symptoms:  Bruising or hematoma, swelling and/or edema, firmness or hardness under the skin, inflammation/redness, mild bleeding from the needle punctures, numbness, tingling or sensitivity changes, tenderness or pain, itching.  We recommend that if you do have any pain or discomfort that you take acetaminophen (Tylenol).  We also recommend wearing a compression/spanx garment. Leggings are a good option.  Shower before your treatment because we want you to avoid showering after your treatment until the following day. Please avoid sitting in a bath or hot tub for several days.  Results from your Cellfina treatment are visible in as little as three days and those results are still evident three years after treatment.  Dr. Whitlock will see you at post-operative appointments scheduled at one week, 3 months, and 1 year after your Cellfina procedure.

 

Contraindications

Not everyone is a good candidate for the Cellfina System.  The Cellfina System should not be used by patients with the following contraindications:  Coagulations disorders, diabetic, excessive obesity, surgery within the last 6 weeks, on anticoagulant medications, phlebitis and vasculitis, pregnant, skin infections or open lesions, uncontrolled hypertension, tumors, vascular fragility, varicose veins in the treatment area.  Dr. Whitlock will spend time with you discussing these contraindications during your Cellfina consultation.

 

Ready to get started?

If you’re ready to enter the ring and knock-out cellulite, we encourage you to schedule a complimentary consultation to learn more about both treatment options available at Whitlock Cosmetic Center (Cellfina and Qwo).  Both deliver amazing results but take different approaches to treatment.  Dr. Whitlock will explain both options and will help you choose the treatment that’s right for your individual needs.

If you’re tired of stubborn cellulite that just will not go away, you may be the perfect candidate for Cellfina.

Significant results can be seen immediately after ONE 45-minute treatment, with limited downtime, and continued improvement in months to follow. How long does one treatment session of Cellfina last? With a single treatment, (a session that only takes 45 minutes) it can drastically reduce the amount of cellulite present. The results of this treatment will last about 3 years. That’s right, you will be cellulite free, and happy for three years. Not only will you be please with the simple process, you will love the results!

This entire procedure is performed at the Tulsa cosmetic surgery center and lasts about 45 minutes long. If you have never undergone a procedure like this before, here’s what you can expect. You’ll first meet with Dr. Whitlock to perform a few tests to make sure you’re healthy, and then he’ll begin marking areas that have cellulite, or that you would like improved. The method itself that Dr. Whitlock uses is pain free, affordable, and relatively quick. It releases the fibrous septae under the dimpled areas of skin on the thigh and buttocks area. This is in similarity to how a rubber band stretches and releases under tension. Once released, the treated skin bounces back, and appears smoother. Almost ‘wrinkle’ or cellulite free. We all desire that radiant, pore less, and flawless skin. Nobody expects you to be perfect, but with the help of Cellfina provided by Dr. Whitlock, we can make your skin, legs, and buttocks, look flawless!

When your skin loses its laxity, it’s an occurrence that is caused by the loss of collagen over time. This occurs naturally as you age, stress, weight gain, or extreme weight loss, and even genetics.

We have helped may women over the years of all ages, and races. The results are the same. Not only is the cellulite is gone, but women have never felt better about themselves as they do now.

By using Cellfina to target the primary structural cause for cellulite, it creates a longer lasting result, rather than prescribing a momentary creamy “band-aid” to slather over dimply flaws.  Cellfina releases the fibrous septae under the dimpled areas of the thigh & buttocks, this achieves long lasting results for at least three years! Many women are ideal candidates for Cellfina through the Tulsa cosmetic surgery center with Dr. Whitlock’s team. Those who qualify, are those who are struggling with excessive cellulite on their buttocks, or thighs. Women who have lost skin elasticity over the years due to age or other hormonal factors, or women who currently have a BMI of 35 or less are also ideal candidates.

At the beginning of the procedure to keep you comfortable, a local numbing solution is administered before Dr. Whitlock begins the Cellfina procedure. Some tenderness, soreness, and bruising are among common side effects, but don’t worry, they disappear quickly when present and are rated as minimal [2.7 or lower on a 10 – point scale for maximum pain levels] by most patients, within three days following treatment. Most patients (82%) only felt pain when applying touch or pressure to the treated areas, and then reported a reduction in sensitivity just three days after the procedure. Those patients that reported any pain following the first three days, rated their pain as minimal and therefore pain medications are not necessary. However, if you are interested in any pain prescriptions, discuss them with Dr. Whitlock and whether they would be beneficial to you
