Loving Your Summer Body

Summer is a great time to refresh or re-evaluate your plastic surgery wish list. As the weather heats up, we all want feel the need to show more skin! However, people also have a tendency to become more self-conscious about their bodies during the summer, probably because it is the time of year when there is no shortage of objects (other bodies) with which to compare your own!

While the tendency to compare is a natural human trait, it is also important to always be gentle with ourselves in the area of body-image. Being too self-critical can make you unhappy, or worse!

Instead of focusing on other people’s bodies excessively during the summer, focus on what your magnificent body is capable of and form a realistic wish list of cosmetic procedures that will benefit you the most in terms of results! Remember, even small cosmetic changes can give a major boost to self-confidence.

Here are some of the most popular summertime cosmetic procedures that we see patients for, either in the beginning (consultative) phase or for actual surgery:

  • Liposuction: Bikini bottoms everywhere mean an increase in requests for liposuction in our office, particularly of the thighs and hips.
  • Breast Lifts: What bikini bottoms are to liposuction, bikini tops are to breast lifts (and augmentation), resulting in more interest in breast surgery.
  • Tummy Tucks: Not surprisingly, tummy tucks are another common request during bikini season!

While we all have the tendency to check out other people’s bodies during swim-season, it’s important to know what is realistic for our own bodies in terms of plastic surgery results. We can help you decide which procedures will help you achieve your best body (not someone else’s)!
