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. Unique in how it works, Cellfina® releases the fibrous septae under the dimpled areas of the thigh & buttocks, to achieve results lasting three years or more.

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

How long does the procedure take?

The one-time, in-office treatment takes about 45 minutes on average, depending on the patient and the number of areas being treated for each individual.

Does it hurt?
