Cosmetic Procedures to get your 2021 Summer Body
Summer is just around the corner, and the warmer temperatures usually mean shedding those big, baggy layers and slipping into thinner, cooler, and fewer clothes. If you don’t feel ready to reveal your body to the world, you aren’t alone. Most people feel self-conscious about at least one area of their body, and this can make the lead-up to the hottest season of the year a little stressful. Fortunately, there are things that you can do to help get your 2021 summer body ready, including some of our most popular cosmetic procedures.
Even the slimmest, healthiest person can suffer from stubborn pockets of fatty deposits that keep a perfectly smooth, contoured, and streamlined appearance just out of reach. Liposuction is one of the most effective ways of addressing those areas that just don’t respond to diet and exercise. It’s most often performed on the abdomen, thighs, hips, and upper arms, and involves literally sucking out excess fat cells that may be causing bulges and wobbly bits. Liposuction is extremely safe, and since only tiny incisions are needed for the catheter that will suck the fat out, there is minimal scarring and a fairly quick recovery with a low risk of complications. Performed by a skilled professional, liposuction is a great way of tightening up areas of the body that lack tone and definition.
Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is a popular procedure in people who have lost a large amount of weight, or who have previously had children. In both cases, the abdominal skin and muscles will have been stretched beyond their usual capabilities and may not have returned to how they were previously. This leaves patients with lax muscles and excess skin that can make them feel self-conscious about the way that they look, particularly in swimwear. A tummy tuck is a major cosmetic surgery that looks to remove the excess fat and skin around the abdomen, as well as tightening abdominal muscles to create definition. The result is a flatter, smoother, and tighter abdominal area that improves the appearance of your entire midsection.
Arm and Thigh Contouring
Jiggly thighs and upper arms are a common problem for many people since these areas simply aren’t as affected by diet and exercise as some other parts of the body. Body contouring is a very popular cosmetic surgery option to address these areas, reducing their size, removing sagging skin and fat, and tightening the area so that you no longer feel that you have to hide beneath swim skirts, longer shorts, or sleeved shirts.
Arm contouring sometimes takes the form of an arm lift, which involves making an incision along the length of the upper, inner arm to remove excess skin and fat and pull the skin tighter. Liposuction can also be used as an alternative. A thigh lift is similar, with an incision hidden along the inside of the thighs to remove surplus fat and skin. Again, liposuction is a viable alternative for patients not considered suitable for the surgery.
