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
"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

"I have been a patient of Dr. Jain and the Institute of Plastic Surgery for several years. When I decided to begin looking for a plastic surgeon, I scheduled several consultations with various surgeons in Colorado Springs. Everyone I spoke with was professional, but honestly, no one left me with the comfort I felt I needed when making, what were for me, extremely important decisions about changing my body. I then met Dr. Jain. He was not only incredibly professional but had the type of demeanor that instantly made me feel comfortable. Our initial consultation was no less than an hour. I had a lot of questions! He was patient, understood my reservations and took the time to explain all of my options in great detail. I left the office optimistic and finally ready to take the next step. Prior to surgery, he and his entire team ensured that I was comfortable with the decisions we made and that I was at ease. Post-surgery (multiple cosmetic procedures), I had numerous follow up appointments at the Institute and everyone on his team was nothing short of fantastic. I am always greeted by name and made to feel (this may sound cliché) like part of their family. They have made the entire process truly comfortable and the environment they create is so warm and welcoming. Since the initial cosmetic procedures (I couldn’t be happier with my results!), I have seen Dr. Jain and his team for fillers, Botox, BBL, and Sculptra injections. Truthfully, my face looks years younger, and more importantly, I have a much needed renewed sense of confidence and self-esteem. Meeting with Dr. Jain and choosing him as my plastic surgeon was unequivocally the right decision for me. He has been so honest and attentive and I genuinely feel his primary focus is to ensure that what he does, is right for me. I am so happy with all of my results and continue to see him and his entire team for all of my “cosmetic maintenance”. Dr. Jain is without a doubt an exceptional plastic surgeon, but what makes him exemplary is his attention and compassion as is evidenced by his interest in his patients."- A.B. / Google / Feb 21, 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.
