Francisco Canales, MD and Heather Furnas, MD are excited to introduce Cellfina for fat elimination. The founders of Plastic Surgery Associates, Dr. Canales and Dr. Furnas are among the first cosmetic surgeons to offer patients this cutting-edge cellulite reduction technique.

More than 90% of all cellulite occurs in women. Their unique cellular makeup allows for developing pockets of fat cells to form within structural connective tissue, thus creating an unsightly dimpling of the skin. While diet and exercise play a part in the formation of cellulite, genetics and hormones remain the primary cause.

Cellfina is the first of its kind in the fight against cellulite. The technology was introduced to the cosmetic surgery world at the 2015 Aesthetic Meeting in Montreal. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a safe method to reduce cellulite, Cellfina offers results unmatched by any other procedure. This nonsurgical technique has been proven effective at erasing unsightly fat ripples along the buttocks and thighs for up to three years or longer.

During the in-office treatment, the provider will use a handheld applicator to gently vacuum up targeted tissue. A local anesthetic is then applied using Cellfina’s distinctive, misting delivery system. Finally, a needle-size reciprocating saw will meticulously release the connective fat bands, allowing dimpled areas to even out for a smooth appearance.

The procedure takes between 30 to 45 minutes to perform. Compared to more invasive procedures, such as liposuction, Cellfina does not require a lengthy recovery. Results will start to become noticeable in three to five days, and can last for several years.

Dr. Canales and Dr. Furnas are known for bringing their patients the latest in noninvasive techniques for improving the appearance. Cellfina can restore the confidence and self-esteem that many women have lost. Dr. Canales elaborates, “Any woman who has dimpled cellulite in the buttocks and thighs is a candidate for (treatment). Cellfina offers new hope for the common indentations that dimpled cellulite leaves on the thighs and buttocks of women.”

Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Canales and Dr. Furnas established Plastic Surgery Associates in 1992. They offer a full range of surgical cosmetic procedures, including breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, and the Mommy Makeover. With the increasing need for effective noninvasive procedures, the surgeons opened Allegro MedSpa in 2006. Today, in a luxurious setting, their patients can expect to find the latest in nonsurgical rejuvenation for the face and body, including the new Cellfina.
