Cellfina Cellulite Removal – NYC Plastic Surgeon


The NYC board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Adam Schaffner is proud to offer our Manhattan patients the only FDA-cleared treatment proven to improve the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs for at least one year.

Cellfina® is the only FDA-cleared, minimally invasive, one-time cellulite treatment procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least three years—the longest FDA-cleared duration for a cellulite treatment. Cellfina® combines a proven approach with innovative, proprietary technology, to produce precise, long-lasting results. Cellfina® does not involve an operating room or general anesthesia. It relies on a minimally invasive, small needle-sized device to treat the cellulite-causing bands just beneath the surface of the skin.

  • Cellulite treatment results are visible in as little as three days.
  • In just one 45-minute treatment, Cellfina® significantly improves the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs.
  • There is limited to no downtime associated with Cellfina®.

Cellfina works by addressing the underlying cause of cellulite: the fibrous bands that create the dimples. By treating those bands directly and allowing them to release, Cellfina restores a smooth and contoured appearance cellulite-free to the buttocks and thighs.
