Spring has sprung in the midwest. Winter coats are stored away and traded for floral prints and gossamer blouses. But before you know it, summer will settle in with dreams of beach getaways and tropical vacations. Are you ready to put on a bikini and strut your stuff on the sand?
For some women, diet and exercise may be enough to get their perfect beach body. But lots of women desire changes that diet and exercise can’t fix.
If what you see in the mirror doesn’t match the picture in your mind, consider these ways that plastic surgery can get you ready for the beach in mere weeks.
1. Breast Augmentation
If your breasts don’t have the volume and fullness you’d like, a breast augmentation will help you achieve the look you desire. Implants are inserted to create natural-looking breasts with the size and shape that suits your body. You can choose implants to add a little or a lot of volume.
2. Breast lift
Perhaps your breasts don’t look like they once did. Age, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy can cause breasts to sag and droop. A breast lift is a simple surgery that can restore the perky breasts you remember.
3. Breast lift and augmentation
A combination of a breast lift with augmentation is a great option for women who have sagging breasts that also lack volume. In this procedure, the breasts are augmented with implants to increase the size of the breasts and then lifted to eliminate drooping.
4. Full Tummy Tuck
Tummy tucks are perfect for women that have stomachs that overhang. Belly overhang happens frequently after giving birth or losing a lot of weight. Diet and exercise may never be enough to restore a flat belly. Surgery to remove the excess skin and tighten stomach muscles is called an abdominoplasty.
5. Mini Tummy Tuck
A mini tummy tuck targets just the area below your belly button. This surgery has a faster recovery and can get you on the beach sooner. It may be a good option for women who have a smaller amount of excess skin and fat to remove. Women with more muscle separation and larger amounts of skin and fat to remove may choose a full tummy tuck instead.
Stubborn fat that won’t budge with diet and exercise can be removed with liposuction. The fat around your abdomen, hips, buttocks, and thighs can be targeted to sculpt a leaner, more proportionate shape. You can even get liposuction for your upper arms, chin, and neck. When liposuction is performed, the fat cells are permanently eliminated.
7. Arm Lift
When the skin on your arms sags and droops, it can lead to feeling self-conscious. An arm lift removes excess skin to make your arms look youthful and athletic again. Sagging skin on your arms can be due to aging, weight changes, and even genetics.
8. Lower Body Lift
A lower body lift is a great option if you have stretched and sagging skin on your abdomen, thighs, back, and buttocks. In this procedure, skin and fat are removed from your midsection, which tightens everything up. It is really a combination of a tummy tuck, thigh lift, and butt life in one procedure.
9. Mommy Makeover
One or more pregnancies can lead to sagging skin, drooping breasts, and stretched abdominal muscles. A mommy makeover can get you back to your former self and you can feel good about wearing a bathing suit again. Multiple surgeries are performed at the same time to lift, tighten, and reshape your body. You can get a combination of breast lift, breast augmentation, liposuction, and a tummy tuck or lower body lift.
