If you Google “how to get rid of cellulite,” you’ll get about 2.5 million results instantly. That’s because cellulite is a universal problem, and women have been trying to find its cure, probably since the dawn of time (or at least the miniskirt).
Cellulite doesn’t discriminate. Here at The Wall Center, we see a lot of beautiful bodies, and even the most slender, most fit women struggle with cellulite. It sometimes affects men, but if you’re female, it comes with the territory, and there’s never been much you could do about it – until now.
Cellfina is the only FDA-cleared, minimally invasive treatment that improves the appearance of cellulite on the hips, buttocks, and thighs for at least 3 years. The key to its effectiveness is that it treats the underlying causes of cellulite.
Understanding Cellulite: The Sofa Analogy
Cellulite on your hips, buttocks and thighs is a lot like the button-tufted design you see on sofas, ottomans, and upholstered headboards. Instead of buttons pulling down on the fabric and stuffing, you have bands of connective tissue “tacking” down your body’s normal fat layer, causing a dimpled appearance.
The answer to cellulite isn’t fat removal. It’s releasing those fibrous bands that cause the dimples. Cellfina uses tiny microblades (needle-sized) to penetrate the skin and detach those bands, eliminating the tension that causes the notorious lumpy, bumpy look of cellulite. The result is a smoother surface that lasts for years.
Sounds good, right? But if you’re like us, you want proof.
Proof That Cellfina Is a Game-Changer
The Wall Center was one of the first 3 plastic surgery practices in the U.S. selected to offer Cellfina, and Dr. Simeon Wall Jr. is a principal investigator in Cellfina’s Registry Study. We have seen first-hand what the data proves:
- A single Cellfina treatment produced noticeable improvements.
- Patients had a 93% satisfaction rate at 3 years.
- Cellfina has the longest FDA clearance for any cellulite treatment.
As one of the world’s foremost authorities on body contouring, Dr. Wall Jr. presented the Cellfina 3-year data at the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery’s annual meeting in May of 2015.

A Cellulite Treatment We Can Get Behind
At our practice, we’re not quick to jump on the bandwagon, especially when it comes to something as tricky as cellulite treatment. We know that women are hungry for a treatment that works, and that millions of dollars are spent each year on therapies that provide inconsistent, short-lived or disappointing results.
We’ve turned down a lot of so-called “breakthroughs” in cellulite treatment. Cellulaze was promising, but expensive, invasive, and the heat that it generates can introduce a host of other problems. We aren’t convinced it provides the superior results that we expect from our body contouring services.
At The Wall Center, we don’t do disappointing, and we won’t offer a treatment that leaves our patients anything less than ecstatic. Cellfina is the first cellulite treatment to come along that we believe is worthy of our patients, and worthwhile enough to merit the investment of both our dollars and our reputation.
If you’ve been looking for a solution to cellulite, and you’re as picky as we are, then Cellfina just might be the treatment you’ve waited for.
