Cellulite, a fibrous tissue, forms beneath the skin (usually around the hips, thighs, and stomach), creating a bumpy, dimpled look. Our plastic surgeons at the Institute of Plastic Surgery in Colorado Springs, CO are proud to perform Cellfina. Cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Cellfina can improve the appearance of cellulite for up to two years. By pinpointing the fibrous tissue commonly found in the thighs and buttocks with a minimally invasive treatment, Cellfina frees the bound tissue and helps smooth the skin in a few days. In the past, cellulite was basically impossible to remove, but today you can receive great, noticeable results from the Cellfina procedure at our practice.

"Blessed that Dr. Dash did my BA - I’m 3 days post op from my BA and couldn’t have asked for a better physician to do my surgery. Dr. Dash and her staff were amazing. I was a little nervous going into my first consult, but everyone made me feel so comfortable. Dr. Dash throughly went over the different kinds of implants, case studies that have been done and answered every question that I had. She is very patient, kind and ful..."- B. / RealSelf / Oct 22, 2018
"Total facial resurfacing - I have had horrible cystic acne from a very young age. I’m 32 and I still break out on occasion. It doesn’t help that I pick at it either, but the scars are awful. I’ve always been self conscious about my face. I decided to go and do something about it when I decided I wanted a breast lift/aug. Some light shows more of the depth of these rolling scar better than others. It has been 24 hours..."- Y. / RealSelf / Sep 22, 2018
"Breast lift with implants - I have had fairly large breasts since high school. They were great and followed me everywhere. Then I went to college and gain the “freshmen 50” (yes 50, not 15) and they got quite large. Between yo-yo dieting, poor nutrition, and inconsistent exercising, they just look sad and deflated. Now that I’m 32, I have finally figured out how to feed myself and I’m stable enough that I’ve decided t..."- Y. / RealSelf / Sep 16, 2018
Cellfina is safe and effective for most patients. But, you might not be able to have Cellfina if you have an infection, loose skin, diabetes, or varicose veins. You should also not have Cellfina if you are pregnant or taking blood thinners. The best candidates for Cellfina:
- Are at a healthy, stable weight
- Have cellulite on their stomach, legs, or hips
- Have good skin tone
Prior to the procedure, we will have you stand still while one of our team members uses a marker to identify the cellulite in the treatment area. Next, a local anesthesia will be administered and your procedure will be initiated. Using suction stabilization to keep the area taut, a microblade is inserted into the treatment area with the help of the Cellfina handheld device. The fibrous bands underneath the skin are cut away, allowing the cellulite to loosen, leaving behind smoother skin. This procedure can typically be performed in under an hour.
What to Expect
Under most circumstances, you can resume your normal routine the day following your procedure. However, we advise you to refrain from over-exertion for a couple of days to allow the treatment area the opportunity to recover. Common side effects of Cellfina include bruising, swelling, and tenderness. These symptoms aren't usually serious and fade away in a matter of days. Following the treatment, you could notice visible results in days, with improvement and peak results in the weeks and months that follow. Men and women who keep their weight stable will yield the longest-lasting results, but Cellfina can be performed repeatedly as necessary.
