Meet Dr. Shinn – Your Surgeon and Medical Director


“I love my work.  Every time I work with patients, I get to enjoy seeing them leave happy and confident”


Since she started her first practice in Pueblo Colorado in 1997, board-certified general surgeon and Fellow of American College of Surgeons Dr. Rina Shinn has had a passion to use her skills to help others.

Although she enjoyed her work, it was hard to see so many patients in pain.  As she studied and grew her skills, she found herself drawn to a different path: aesthetic surgery.


“In general surgery, I was used to seeing them in pain after surgery, sometimes recovering for weeks or months. In the aesthetics field, I get to send my patients away with a smile.”


In 2008, Dr. Shinn expanded her expertise in the laser aesthetics field and opened her Pueblo, Colorado based surgery and spa Adonis Asthetics.  It’s a unique center that combines life-changing procedures with healing techniques and wellness seminars.  The results is place where women and men with busy lives can get a procedure done, and be assured they’ll look great and heal faster.


“I treat every patient like a good friend – I only recommend procedures that would be best for their desired outcome, their health, and their budget.”


What is it like to be under the care of only female cosmetic breast surgeon in Southern Colorado?


What makes Dr. Shinn’s approach unique is the care she gives her patients.  Unlike other surgeons, Dr. Shinn wants to be as non-invasive as possible, so that you can have the best results and the fastest healing.

Dr. Rina Shinn is the first surgeon in Colorado to provide Body-Jet, an innovative water-assisted liposuction technique (WAL).

Body Jet is by far the most gentle type of liposuction that will transform your body and leave you with an amazing new shape.

She is also the first surgeon in Pueblo to provide Transumbilical Breast Augmentation, commonly referred to as T.U.B.A., scarless or belly button breast augmentation.

Dr. Shinn also provides Transaxillary, or underarm, breast implant incisions do not involve any cutting of the breasts.  Instead, the transaxillary incision is placed in the natural folds of the skin in the armpit, making the scar well-hidden.


A rare approach that creates incredible results with reduced healing time and minimal scaring.

Having practiced general surgery for more than 17 years, Dr. Shinn has a thorough knowledge of facial and body anatomy and physiology.

She has performed various “traditional” forms of cosmetic procedures, including traditional liposuction. Dr. Shinn is thrilled with the evolvement of non-invasive cosmetic procedures that feature far less trauma, bleeding and recovery time.

Dr. Shinn specializes in performing all her cosmetic surgery procedures under local anesthesia and IV sedation only rather than under general anesthesia and utilizes tumescent technique for better comfort and faster healing.

She also makes sure patients are prepared for surgery by educating them on lymphatic drainage education and other ways to speed up recovery.  This empowers her patience to have an active role in their surgery, recovery, and the ultimate outcome.

And best of all, most patients are able to resume their normal activities shortly after their procedure.

“In general surgery, not much changes on a day-to-day basis, but in this field, there are new procedures and technologies literally every day. As I got deeper into my research, it became a full-blown affair for me. I love learning”
