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.
"35 years ago, I had breast implant surgery. Over the course of those years, my breasts had encapsulated causing my breasts to look totally abnormal and very hard to the touch. Fast forward, I needed them removed. Dr Jain was recommended and I couldn't be more pleased. He replaced my implants (both of which had ruptured, but I didn't know it) with the type of implant that much reduces the possibility of encapsulation and no chance of old-school rupture. The results are simply stunning. Soft, normal shaped and just the right size. The surgery was a bit complicated, but Dr. Jain's expertise was key in getting the results I wanted. Dr. Jain is gifted, and very attuned to the needs of the patient. He gave me a realistic description of what to expect and he delivered. His staff is wonderful--very attentive and supportive. Overall, I couldn't be more pleased. Highly recommend."- P.D. / Google / Nov 20, 2018
"I highly recommend Institute of Plastic Surgery. Very professional and caring Dr’s and staff. The office Manager Lucy is awesome! I had laser done on dark spots on my face. I never had anything like that done before. Everything was explained thorough and it went very well with great results. Thank you for everything and I wouldn’t go anywhere else!"- B.T. / Facebook / Apr 24, 2019
"Dr. Dash is absolutely amazing!! I felt so comfortable with her instantly and she took so much time to explain everything to me in such detail in a way that was so easy to understand about the beast augmentation I wanted! She was amazing at settling my nerves right before I went into the OR! I would recommend her to anyone! So knowledgeable and doesn’t sugar coat any risks associated... I couldn’t have been any happier with my experience with her and all the staff there! They have all been so nice and make you feel so welcome from the first visit."- D.V. / Facebook / Apr 17, 2019
"Dr. Dash is amazing! She is super smart and funny and did a great job on my breast reduction. Everything was explained well and pain was managed great. I looked at several surgeons and liked that she doesn't use drains (and apparently I didn't need them because everything went fine without). My neck and shoulder pain are virtually gone! I can do cardio without getting a black eye ;-) Thanks Dr. Dash!"- B.V. / Google / Mar 21, 2019
"As a TG female it can be difficult to find someone who you trust, who is respectful, and who can really understand the importance of how you look. My mother and I interviewed surgeons from Boulder to Colorado Springs, and we both knew from the moment we met Dr. Dash that she was the only one we wanted to work with. The support staff was professional, courteous, and always greeted us with smiles. I really impressed that they were always on time, including the day of surgery, which was not the case with many of the other surgeons I interviewed. What’s most important though is the results, and I can’t put it in words how happy I am! My breasts not only look natural, but Dr. Dash was able to give me the size and shape I always wanted. I healed quickly, with minimal scaring that you can barely see 6 weeks after, and LOVE my body as a result. This has been one of the best choices of my life, and I am so glad I chose Dr. Dash! Thank you Dr. Dash!"- C.D. / Google / Feb 26, 2019
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.
