New Year’s resolutions to cut back calories and increase workouts can be a great motivation to stay fit. However, many people find that diet and exercise alone simply aren’t enough for them to reach their ideal body goals. Plastic surgery provides an opportunity to achieve your optimal summer body. In this blog post, Scottsdale plastic surgeon Dr. Jonathan Weinrach discusses why there is no time like the present to get your summer body.
Everyone is unique, therefore the perfect summer body may mean different things to different people. However, most people focus on the abdomen, buttocks and thighs when wishing to improve a problem area. Below is a list of popular procedures to get your body beach ready:
- Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) – removes extra fat, skin and in some cases even stretch marks from the abdomen
- Liposuction – eliminates stubborn pockets of fat from problem areas, such as the buttocks, thighs and abdomen
- Breast lift – raises saggy breasts to a higher position on the chest wall and creates a more desirable breast contour
- Breast augmentation – enhances volume and cleavage with saline or silicone gel implants
Cooler Weather Means Easy Cover-up
While you can expect to be back to your normal routine within a few weeks after most cosmetic surgeries, it may take several months before your body permanently settles into its new shape. Most people experience mild to moderate swelling in the weeks following their procedures. Undergoing cosmetic surgery in the winter provides the patient with a good opportunity to use cool-weather clothing and layers to hide bandages, compression garments and swelling. Loose layers are also a great way to maximize comfort as you recover.
A Break From the Busy Season
The New Year offers a welcomed reprieve from the chaotic holiday season. November and December are known for parties and office obligations that not only keep you busy, but encourage excess and indulgence. Once January rolls around, it’s easier to give your body time to rest and get back to a consistently healthy eating routine. The break from social engagements provides a perfect time for you to give your body adequate time to rest and recover.
