Spring is here, which means summer is just a few months away. If you are planning on spending time enjoying outdoor activities, showing your body off at the pool, beach, vacationing, or at social gatherings, you’ll want to make sure your body looks its best! You want to erase excess skin or stubborn areas of fat so you can wear the clothes you want and feel self-confident.

Body-Positive Goals

Now is the time to think about how you want to look and feel in your skin. Wanting to slim down your abdomen and hips, lift your breasts, or remove excess skin? Once you nail the changes you are looking for, you can visit our plastic surgeon to talk about how to make these changes happen for you. Whether you want a single procedure or multiple procedures to accomplish your goal, we can help! There are a variety of cosmetic surgery options available such as liposuction to trim unwanted fat, tummy tucks, non-surgical body sculpting using lasers to contour fat by heating or cooling it, and even breast lifts.

Treatment Options

    Liposuction: This minimally invasive plastic surgery gets rid of unsightly fat from your arms, back, belly, and legs, and the incisions heal quickly as the swelling and bruising go down. You can typically see results in one to three months, meaning now is the time to schedule a consultation.

    Tummy Tuck: Do you have excess skin from pregnancy, weight loss, aging, etc.? This body contouring treatment involves abdominoplasty, more commonly referred to as a tummy tuck, where our surgeon removes the excess or saggy skin and tightens the rest. This treatment usually requires a month of recovery, and you’re ready to show off your beach body after three months.

    Laser Body Sculpting: Also known as laser lipolysis, this is a non-invasive (non-surgical) fat removal option to get rid of fat cells and bulges on your arms, tummy, thighs, back, chest, and chin, for example. You’ll see a difference in your sculpted areas after your body eliminates those fat cells anywhere from two weeks to 12 weeks for final results.

    Breast Lift: If your breasts are sagging or dropping, our plastic surgeon can lift and reshape your breasts so they look more firm and round (whether from aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or from losing or gaining weight). If you want to boost or reduce breast size, it will require breast augmentation. While soreness, bruising, and swelling diminish within a few weeks, your final breast shape could take 2 to 12 months.


If you are considering one of these options to contour your body in a more pleasing shape, you will want to start with a consultation with our plastic surgeon. This one-on-one with our surgeon can help you decide how to achieve your body-positive goals. It is your chance to ask your questions and get the answers you need to help you feel like your body contouring treatment of choice can support your goals. We understand that you want your body to look its best for your highest self-esteem possible.

Maintaining Results

To maintain your results, stick to a nutritionally sound, healthy diet to avoid gaining weight and supply your skin with what it needs to maintain elasticity. Eating plenty of lean proteins and fresh vegetables and staying hydrated with plenty of water throughout your day can make all the difference. Be sure to incorporate regular exercise and get a good night’s sleep to support your body’s needs. As summer approaches, feeling good in your skin can help you move through your life with confidence and joy. Give our team a call to learn how to make your goals a reality!
