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
"Dr. Jain and his staff are very professional as well as friendly and caring. Dr. Jain listens and spends his time with his clients. My surgery for explant and lift went quite well with excellent results. I would highly recommend him for cosmetic and or reconstructive surgery. He is very responsive to questions and calls. I did call him on a Friday evening and he returned my call immediately and saw me after hours in his office. My call turned out to be an easy fix, wait a day and the discomfort will go away, sure enough that is just what happened. Thank you, Dr. Jain."- G.G. / Google / Jun 12, 2020
"Fantastic Experience and Results - Dr. Jain did an awesome job from initial consultation to surgery to follow up. I had saline implants about 14 years ago and one of them ruptured for an unknown reason. I had them replaced with silicone and couldn't be happier with the results. He takes the time to listen and talk with you and really cares about his patients. The whole office staff is wonderful, warm and friendly. I highly recommend Dr. Jain and his practice!"- R. / RealSelf / Jun 03, 2020
"He removed two lesions under my left eye: I Give a 10+ Recommendation for This Wonderful Plastic Surgeon and His Awesome Staff! - I had two lesions under my left eye that were highly concerning to me because of health issues. Because of the proximity to my eye, I was worried about visible permanent scars. I was referred to Dr. Jain by a well-trusted colleague. Dr. Jain was nothing short of amazing and is a genuine professional. He is very kind, understanding, listens carefully and evaluates the issues efficiently and accurately. The removal process was a pain free experience. He expertly removed the lesions in a very short amount of time and made me feel very comfortable during the entire process. He explained exactly what he was going to do and what I could expect. I was so very impressed. 7 days later, the stitches were removed. I was so delighted to see that not only was the healing complete ... I could not see any scars! He is a wonderful plastic surgeon! I am so happy that I decided to choose Dr. Jain and am so delighted with all his staff too. They are all just wonderful. I love them all - and you will too! I highly recommend Dr. Jain and his staff for any of your concerns."- L. / RealSelf / May 29, 2020
"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
Cellfina Ideal Candidates
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
Cellfina Procedure Technique
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 with Cellfina
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.
