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
"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
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.
