About Body Contouring
The slogan "body contouring" is a phrase used in the aesthetic world to represent a number of surgeries that can help to sculpt a shapelier silhouette. Women and men who have lost weight, or whose weight has changed frequently over time, may desire to have body contouring at Institute of Plastic Surgery to remove fat, tighten the skin, and sculpt certain areas of the body. In addition, body contouring can be used for those who are aging and find that diet and exercise alone no longer provide the shape they desire. Our Colorado Springs, CO plastic surgeons offer numerous body contouring choices, from liposuction, breast lift surgery, and abdominoplasty to fat grafting and laser treatments that tighten the skin. The possibilities to redefine and rejuvenate your physique are endless.
You may be a great candidate for body contouring if you have loose skin, droopy body parts, like the buttocks or breasts, or fat in areas that are hard to lose. The hips, flanks, neck, abdomen, and lower back are examples of areas where fat deposits can collect, causing unsightly bulges. The best candidates for this procedure are individuals who are at a healthy, ideal weight and wish for a firmer, more defined shape.
"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

Plan Your Procedure
After your initial visit, we will create an aesthetic treatment plan for you. This could include both nonsurgical and surgical treatments. Surgeries, such as liposuction, abdominoplasty, and breast lift or augmentation typically require the use of general anesthesia. Our goal during surgery is to create an incision that can be hidden behind clothing, as well as to minimize unwanted fat and excess skin, leaving a slimmer, tighter contour. Nonsurgical treatments are typically completed at our practice without any need for sedation. This may include laser skin tightening, laser liposuction, injectable fillers, etc.
What to Expect
If you are having a surgical procedure, you can expect to be sent home to heal and recover afterward. Nonsurgical treatments typically do not have any downtime. It's not uncommon for some patients to undergo many procedures at once on multiple body parts, which may require staying for observation. Body contouring is meant to sculpt your body, so whether you have chosen nonsurgical or surgical treatments, or some of each, you can expect a slimmer, tighter body and a more defined profile.
Redefine Your Shape
Whether you want perkier breasts, a fuller bottom, a slimmer waist, or a tighter tummy, body contouring at the Institute of Plastic Surgery can give you the body you desire. We encourage you to contact our office to arrange a consultation to allow us to determine your aesthetic goals and create a tailored plan for you. Our team looks forward to helping you.
