Get Your Summer Body NowPublished on
Have you ever heard the saying “Summer bodies are made in winter”? This is particularly true when it comes to undergoing plastic surgery. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, I will tell you that your post-op recovery is essential for safe and long-lasting results. Scheduling your surgery during winter or early spring will give you the appropriate time to heal. When summer arrives, residual swelling and scars will have faded, allowing you to look and feel fabulous in your swimsuit.
If your body isn’t quite “summer ready” yet, Sacramento plastic surgeon Dr. Debra Johnson can help. In this blog post, she discusses some of the most popular plastic surgery requests for a summer body.
Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck targets the loose, excess skin of the abdomen that has lost its elasticity due to pregnancy, aging or weight fluctuations. The procedure removes the excess skin and tightens the abdomen and its muscles for a flatter, and more flattering, tummy.
Liposuction is considered to be the gold standard for fat removal, and for good reason. The procedure can be used on various body areas where there are pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, including the abdomen, flanks and upper thighs. When paired with tummy tuck, liposuction can treat the dreaded “muffin top” and create a sculpted and smoother abdomen.
Small, deflated or asymmetrical breasts won’t fill out your bikini top in a flattering way. Breast augmentation can give you the fullness and cleavage you need to feel confident in your swimsuit.
Or perhaps you desire a more moderately sized bust? Breast reduction can be performed on women who are self-conscious in their bikinis due to overly large breasts. Following breast reduction, many women report feeling relief from physical discomfort caused by heavy, enlarged breasts. Their mobility increases and their confidence skyrockets.
Both breast augmentation and breast reduction can be combined with breast lift. Breast lift removes excess skin and reshapes the breast mound for a more aesthetically pleasing and youthful position on the chest wall.
