Cellfina® - Cellulite Treatment in El Paso, TX

Billions of people are plagued by cellulite, and for those who have exhausted other cellulite reduction options, it may seem impossible to correct. Cellulite, or dimpling of the skin, is caused by woven connective bands that extend through fatty tissues and create rippling across the skin’s surface. Cellfina® is a cellulite reduction treatment that erases cellulite in the thighs and buttocks by managing the anatomy of these connective bands. Dr. Frank Agullo of Southwest Plastic Surgery offers Cellfina® treatment at The Med Spa to enhance his patients’ bodies and smooth out cellulite, resulting in a smoother, firmer appearance.

What Are the Benefits of Cellulite Treatment?

Cellulite treatment helps smooth skin on the thighs, buttocks, and other areas dealing with pesky dimples, pockmarks, or an orange-peel appearance. With Cellfina®, the results are long lasting, if not permanent.

This procedure is ideal for women hoping to:

  • Eliminate cellulite on the buttocks and thighs
  • Achieve smoother skin with minimally invasive technology
  • Wear shorts and bathing suits with confidence

Am I a Candidate for Cellfina®?

You may be a candidate for Cellfina® cellulite treatment if you feel frustrated with pesky cellulite dimples that do not respond to diet and exercise. Cellfina® corrects unwanted cellulite to provide patients with the confidence to show off their bodies.

Patients seeking a less invasive procedure can see if they qualify for treatment with Qwo®, also known as “Buttock Botox”.

Patients who wish to improve their silhouette may be interested in other body contouring procedures, such as liposuction or tummy tuck surgery.

What Is Discussed During My Cellfina® Consultation?

Dr. Agullo understands the unique characteristics and benefits of cellulite treatment. During your consultation, Dr. Agullo will discuss possible treatment options based on your individual needs and goals.

He is also happy to answer any questions you have regarding cellulite reduction and other cosmetic procedures.

What Does My Cellulite Treatment Include?

Whether you want a more toned appearance or you simply want to feel confident in your favorite clothes, Cellfina® can provide you with lasting results. All it takes is a personal consultation, a quick and painless procedure, and minimal recovery to reap the benefits of Cellfina®.



A numbing agent is applied to the surrounding area to prevent discomfort, and the procedure is performed.



Cellfina® is an FDA-cleared procedure that requires no general anesthesia. It can be completed right in the office. Dr. Agullo marks the treatment areas and places a small suction device over each dimple to stretch the cellulite into position. The entire process takes about one hour from start to finish.

How Should I Prepare for My Cellfina® Cellulite Treatment?

Proper planning and preparation can help you have a quicker and smoother treatment experience. Some things you should do to prepare for your procedure include:

  • Ensure you have your paperwork and your ID.
  • Don’t take medication that thins the blood for two weeks before your procedure.
  • Bring a compression garment to your appointment, as recommended by Dr. Agullo.

At Agullo Plastic Surgery, tailored care begins with a full consultation to discuss the goals and options available.

What Are Your Concerns for After Your Cellfina® Treatment?

What Can I Expect for My Cellfina® Recovery?

Because Cellfina® is minimally invasive, it requires minimal recovery. Patients are advised to take it easy for 24 hours following treatment, but normal activity may be resumed immediately. The numbing agent used during the procedure begins to wear off after two to three hours, and any residual discomfort may be treated with over-the-counter medicine.

Is My Cellulite Treatment Painful?

Since a numbing cream is applied at the beginning of your treatment, you will not feel any pain or discomfort.

Will My Cellulite Treatment Leave Scars?

You may notice a small scab at the treatment site. However, since the puncture is so tiny, you will not be left with visible scarring.

When Will I See My Cellfina® Results?

Patients usually see results as soon as three days following Cellfina® treatment, and the treated area continues to improve over time.

How Much Does Cellfina® Cost in El Paso?

Pricing varies depending on the extent of the treatment or surgery. Generally speaking, cosmetic plastic surgery is considered “elective” and is not covered by most insurance plans. Because cellulite reduction treatment varies from patient to patient, Dr. Agullo can provide you with an accurate cost estimate after assessing your current condition during a personal consultation.
