It’s springtime and, though it may be hard to believe, beach season is a mere three months away. If you often find yourself in a panic about your body and swimsuits during this time of year, stop buying all the magazines with articles about getting your best body in ten weeks. Instead, consider other ways to invest in a better body and get yourself ready for that perfect swimsuit. Say goodbye to unwanted flab, stubborn love handles, and other trouble spots with a body contouring procedure.
What Is Body Contouring?
Body contouring procedures are plastic surgeries performed with the goal of recontouring and reshaping the body by correcting trouble zones and improving tone. A body contouring procedure can focus on any part of the body or can include several surgeries performed together for optimum results from neck to thigh. A Mommy Makeover is one example of a group of body contouring surgeries, all performed in tandem to restore and rejuvenate a woman’s body following pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing.
The category of Body Contouring procedures includes abdominoplasty or tummy tuck, arm lift, breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, Cellulaze, SmartLipo Triplex, and thigh lift. Each procedure has its own target area and goals, delivering real results that help you to get into the best shape of your life.
What Procedures Do I Need?
If you’re unhappy about one part of your body, chances are pretty good that you know exactly what it is and what you’d like done to make it better. For instance, when you know you want to get rid of the bat-wings hanging from your arms, you can consult with a plastic surgeon about an arm lift. If you’ve got more than one of these areas needing improvement, it’s time to discuss them all with your plastic surgeon and make a plan for your surgery or group of surgeries.
At your consultation, your plastic surgeon will discuss your concerns and the desires you have to achieve your ideal look. He will assess these areas of your body to determine if they are viable for surgical alterations and to what extent. You should be in good overall health with no illnesses that might impede the healing process. It is also essential that you have reasonable ideas about what changes would make sense for your body. At Laser & Cosmetic Surgery Specialists, your consultation will also involve the use of VECTRA 3D Imaging technology to project real images of yourself before and after your surgery, with your anticipated results visible. This can help tremendously as you decide which procedures are best suited to your body’s needs.
When Is the Best Time for Body Contouring?
These spring months are an ideal time to consult for and schedule your body contouring procedure. Whether it’s a tummy tuck or a breast lift, your surgery should be planned accordingly to allow enough time for your body to heal before it’s time to hit the beach in your new bikini. Discuss your scheduling options with your doctor and be sure to let him know what your summer plans involve. He may give different recommendations based on the procedures you’re seeking as well. Cellulaze and SmartLipo, for example, have a far shorter recovery period and can be performed later in the spring if desired. If you’re looking to have a thigh lift surgery, then follow up with Cellulaze, your doctor will space these out so you can have both procedures and be fully recovered in time.
Can Body Contouring Replace Healthy Diet and Exercise?
Lots of people get tired of skipping the chocolate cake and hitting the gym hard for hours on end. While body contouring can do much to get you that ideal figure, a proper diet and regular exercise are the foundation of a healthy, good-looking body. There are certainly many benefits to an abdominoplasty procedure, but be sure to include daily walks and foods packed with vitamins and nutrients into your recovery plan. It is essential that you care for your body to achieve and maintain that beach body look you so desire.
