3 Body Contouring Procedures to Transform Your Shape Before Summer

Are you looking to enhance your body contours for a more alluring shape this summer? To trim areas of diet- and exercise-resistant fat? To add curves where they’re lacking? If so, here are three popular cosmetic procedures that might give you just the changes you’re seeking.

Liposuction

We know how hard it is to keep your weight under control, and how frustrating it can be to slim down only to find that bulges remain around your waist, on your thighs or arms, or under your chin. Fortunately, there is hope! Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure designed to remove pockets of excess fat that linger even when you are close to your ideal body weight.

Liposuction puts the finishing touches on the body you’ve accomplished with healthy eating and exercise habits. It works by extracting accumulations of body fat through thin cannulas (tubes) that require only minimal incisions. Improvements in liposuction techniques in recent years have reduced the size of the tubes used for fat extraction. They’ve also drastically shortened recovery times. As performed now, energy-assisted technology breaks up the fat for easier extraction while also triggering a rejuvenating skin-tightening response.

While liposuction is not intended to be a weight-reduction treatment, it can significantly reduce the volume of treated areas. In the hands of a skilled plastic surgeon like Dr. Clinton, liposuction can be used to sculpt your body for a smoother, slimmer silhouette in time for summer.

Tummy Tuck

For a more dramatic sculpting of your abdomen, you might consider a tummy tuck. This surgical procedure removes excess skin and fat from your belly and tightens and reconnects abdominal muscles that may have become separated. The result is a flatter, firmer abdomen, restoring the look you had before the bulging, stretching, and sagging effects of aging, weight changes, or childbearing.

The tummy tuck is one of the most transformative procedures plastic surgeons offer. Removing loose skin and excess fat can significantly improve your profile. Tightening and reconnecting abdominal muscles not only makes you look more fit; it actually strengthens your torso and can improve your posture as well. When paired with liposuction, tummy tuck results are often nothing short of amazing. Imagine how great you could look with a firm, flat belly this summer!

Breast Lift, Augmentation, or Reduction

The shape and size of your breasts are also important elements of your body’s contours that can be improved with plastic surgery. A breast lift, breast augmentation, or breast reduction can help bring the size and shape of your breasts into better harmony with the rest of your body and give you a younger and more attractive silhouette.

If you’ve been considering breast surgery to counter the effects of aging or childbearing, or if you’ve always wanted larger or smaller breasts, consider scheduling the procedure soon so you can feel a new pride in your body this summer.
