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 came in for a consultation with Dr Jain today and he spent nearly an hour with me! No it isnt because im in terrible shape :) It seems to be his approach to skin care and I really appreciate it. He did a full consult to address my long term goals and was clearly very knowledgeable, conservative and professional. On top of that he is incredibly kind and gracious as is him entire staff. I think I have found a partner to work with for years to come!"- M.P. / Yelp / Mar 03, 2020

"I wanted to have plastic surgery for years and when the time came I then continued my search for a plastic surgeon who understood the delicacy of African American skin and its healing in Colorado. After meeting Dr. Krishna S. Dash I knew I had found the surgeon for me not only because her knowledge of working with African American skin but because she listened to my desires and provided sound advice. From my first visit to my final post op visit the Staff were great and the facility was friendly and inviting. Let me just say Dr. Dash and her husband Dr. Rupesh Jain did an awesome job on my breast lift with implants and tummy tuck. I love my results!!!!! My friends and family were envious of the final outcome and my husband was enormously pleased!!! If you are reading this and looking for: someone who is an astute provider, who takes time for questions, is knowledgeable of African American skin, and is dedicated to healthily reaching the customers greatest wishes then the Institute of Plastic Surgery in Colorado Springs is the place for you. I couldn’t be happier except to say I wish I found her sooner. Thank you so much!!!!"- A.M. / Google / May 21, 2021
"I would like to share my experience with Dr. Rupesh Jain at the Institute of Plastic Surgery. I came to see Dr. Jain in regards to information about a fat transfer to my face and lips, as well as information about receiving dysport and fillers. I decided to schedule a consultation with him both because of his reviews but more importantly because he is a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon. Prior to my visit I filled out paperwork online regarding my medical history so that during my consultation with him he would be prepared to answer my many questions. I am an unusual case because I have an auto-immune disorder called Scleroderma. It can cause hardening and discoloration of the skin, thinning of the lips, shrinking of the opening of the mouth, and an over production of collagen to name a few of the effects of the disease. The above stated ailments are part of the reasons why I came to see him. My goal was to try and regain the Pre-Scleroderma appearance of my face since my diagnosis. During my first meeting with Dr. Jain, it was obvious that he had reviewed my medical history and was ready to discuss why I had searched out his services. He made me feel completely comfortable and not at all rushed. He listened to my concerns, and what my desired outcomes were. He explained clearly and in laymen’s terms what the reality of receiving those outcomes were. He told me what treatments would work best and why others would be either less effective or riskier to pursue. I was given up front costs and did not feel pressured at all to go for the more expensive procedures. I have been seeing Dr. Jain for quite some time now taking a step-by-step approach to achieving the results I desire with the least risk involved to my challenging health issue. I couldn’t be happier with results I have achieved thus far. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Jain and his excellent care. His staff is top notch and his bedside manner is a rare blessing. I would highly recommend Dr. Jain and the Institute of Plastic Surgery to anyone seeking specialized plastic surgery treatment."- A.J. / Google / Mar 22, 2021
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.
