About Our Practice
Our plastic surgery center is focused on helping each patient achieve their unique cosmetic goals through a variety of breast and body cosmetic surgery procedures and MedSpa treatments. Our founding plastic surgeon, Dr. Ashish K. Jain, has been practicing in Columbus, GA, since 1998, and is well-respected in the community for his honest, genuine, and beautiful surgical work. Our newest plastic surgeon is Dr. Tahira I. Prendergast, who joined the practice in August of 2016.
Our facility is state-of-the-art, and in 2005 we opened an on-site outpatient ambulatory plastic surgery center that allows patients the privacy and comfort they need and deserve when receiving and recovering from their treatments. Here, patients can undergo breast, body contouring, and facial cosmetic surgery procedures in the comfort and solitude of Jain Plastic Surgery's beautiful office.
We want to make sure that each patient receives a seamless and pleasant cosmetic surgery experience. In order to make your desired treatments more attainable, we can help you apply for CareCredit®, Prosper, and United Medical Credit payment plans. To make our office more convenient, our parking lot is located away from any busy road, and our entrance is in the back of the building to ensure privacy before and after treatments.
The FDA Presents New Findings on BIA-ALCL
Breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) is a rare condition which can develop following the placement of textured breast implants. This type of anaplastic large cell lymphoma typically forms near the implant within the capsule that the body naturally grows around the implant or within scar tissue of this capsule, rather than in the breast tissue itself. It is important to understand that BIA-ALCL is not breast cancer. The incidence of BIA-ALCL is very low, according to the FDA.
Persistent pain or swelling around a breast implant, on one side only, is the most common symptom of BIA-ALCL. This would occur not less than one year after the textured implant placement, but typically around 8-9 years after placement of a textured implant. Patients also sometimes report a lump under the skin or capsular contracture on one side only. So far, the FDA has found no significant link between silicone implants or saline implants and the development of this condition, only the type of outer covering of the implant (textured vs. smooth). If you are unsure what type of implants you have, then contact the plastic surgeon that placed them. On July 24, 2019, the FDA asked Allergan to remove their Biocell textured breast implants from the USA market, which is being done. Mentor textured impants are not part of this recall. All smooth breast implants are still considered safe by the FDA.
At this time, the FDA is not recommending that women with any type textured implants, have them removed or exchanged, unless they are having symptoms or problems with the textured breast implants.

For patients who have had a mastectomy or lumpectomy, and consequently lost significant shape and volume to their breasts, we can perform breast reconstruction to design an attractive and natural-looking breast shape so you can regain your confidence and quality of life.
Color Tattoo Removal
Sometimes patients regret receiving a tattoo, especially those that want to enlist in the military where tattoos in certain areas are forbidden. Jain Plastic Surgery, PC is at the forefront of this technology. Their color tattoo removal treatments can remove tattoos far quicker than any competitor, by using the most advanced lasers.
Dr. Prendergast specializes in Brazilian butt lifts, and can help you achieve the curves you desire. A Brazilian butt lift harvests your body's own fat, purifies it, and repositions it in strategic areas to create fuller buttocks and a rejuvenated profile that can increase your confidence.
