Time To Consider Your Summer Body

BreastAug_photoSpring is finally here, thoughts of spending time outdoors, warmer weather and skimpy summer clothing, while exhilarating can also cause major anxiety. Getting ‘summer ready’ is suddenly a high priority. Here at The Plastic Surgery Group, we know that spring is the ideal time to consider undergoing plastic surgery procedures such as breast enhancement, liposuction and tummy tucks to improve the body’s contour. Getting back to normal activities takes less time than many people think. There is plenty of time to get your body in the best shape possible before you need to get into those shorts and bathing suits. In fact, spring is one of the busiest times of the year and one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures to get ready for summer is breast enhancement. Breast augmentation is about more than boosting size or looking fantastic in a bathing suit. It’s about feeling confident in your own skin – being able to wear what you want and feel good about the way you look. Breast augmentation can give you a more shapely figure than you’ve ever had or restore volume lost as a result of pregnancy and breast feeding. For many women, it’s a way to feel more confident about breast size, shape, or fullness.

Body contouring is another great choice during the spring months. Procedures such as abdominoplasty, liposuction and Coolsculpting are helping people tailor their body and create a better silhouette. The popularity of abdominoplasties has skyrocketed and four times as many women undergo this very effective surgery than did a decade ago. Abdominoplasty is also known as a “tummy tuck” – a procedure to improve the look of the midsection by removing excess skin and fat while tightening abdominal muscles. Liposuction and Coolsculpting procedures can create a slimmer, more balanced figure by removing stubborn fat deposits on such areas as the upper arms, hips, waist, and thighs. Body contouring procedures of course improve how men and women look, but they do a remarkable job of helping improve how people feel about themselves as well. Clothes fit comfortably and when you’re out enjoying the weather there’s no need to feel awkward or uncomfortable about your appearance.

Why is it Important to Choose a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon?

BoardCertifiedABPSBoard-Certified Plastic Surgeons complete a minimum of five years of surgical training following medical school, including a plastic surgery residency program.

Plastic surgeons are trained to prevent and handle emergencies, and have a comprehensive education to ensure a patient’s safety.

The extensive training provides technical skills, as well as the aesthetic judgment needed to provide the best care and results.

Any licensed physician can call themselves a “cosmetic” surgeon, even if they have never completed training in an approved plastic surgery program.

For these reasons, when choosing a plastic surgeon, confirm they are certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Minimally Invasive Surgical Approach to Facial Rejuvenation

iStock_000036044242_SmallToday patients seek a method of facial rejuvenation with limited downtime. Accomplishing this is not only the goal of the patient but of the surgeons alike. Though given various names, the ‘lunch time lift’, is a surgical procedure marketed as, “under local anesthesia only”. The goal to look as good as you feel or younger than you actually are, cannot realistically be reached with quick lunch time procedures. The old axiom, you get what you pay for is generally true and these minimally invasive procedures gain only a small degree of facial rejuvenation. Though the look may be a welcomed improvement in the first few months, usually these procedures fail to stand the test of time. Within six months, the skin relaxes too rapidly, failing to meet expectations of patients and physicians alike. While lunch time procedures under local anesthesia may not hold the answer for patients seeking modest facial rejuvenation there are other techniques, short of the classical complete facelift, that can.

All facelift techniques include some form of tightening the facial skin. Facelifts today often focus on specific areas of the face, jawline and neck. Whether the decision is to tighten one or all of these areas, the “naturalness” of the procedure must be paramount. To have a natural look, the results should not leave the patient looking windblown or unnatural. Over the years, these techniques have grown less invasive, resulting in less down time, which allows the patient to return to their lifestyle within a week or so. What’s truly important is selecting a surgical procedure that addresses exactly what you need, with minimal scaring. Ask which, if any of these lifts are right for you. In some cases, it’s possible that non-invasive Botox and/or facial fillers may be all that is required.
