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 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
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.
