Whether you’re from California, where nearly every season is “swimsuit” season, or you’re simply gearing up for the sunnier weather soon upon us, you’re probably thinking about what you’ll be wearing this summer. Hot summer days mean skimpier clothes — think shorts, mini-dresses and tank tops — that reveal more of your body, whether you want them to or not. At Divino Plastic Surgery in San Diego, Dr. Carlos Chacon has helped countless patients achieve a more attractive body shape. Here are his tips for getting the body of your dreams in time for summer.
Get a Flatter Tummy
Form-fitting summer dresses, two-piece swimsuits and board shorts: what do they have in common? They all show off your tummy — whether it’s flat or not. If you have a pooch that you can’t get rid of no matter how many donuts you say “no” to or how many Pilates classes you take, then abdominoplasty (tummy tuck surgery) may be a good solution for you. The tummy tuck procedure removes excess, often hanging, skin from the stomach for a tauter, more toned abdomen. The surgery also tightens the underlying stomach muscles to further accentuate a slimmer mid-section.
Get Sleeker Hips and Thighs
Are saddle bags getting you down? If you struggle with having extra fat on your hips and thighs despite proper diet and exercise habits, why not consider liposuction? The SmartLipo procedure offered at Divino Plastic Surgery uses laser energy to liquefy and then remove fat cells from the treatment area. “Problem areas” are instantly gone, as fat is permanently removed from the area and the surrounding skin is tightened, leaving a smoother, sleeker silhouette that looks perfect lounging on a beach towel. And the best part about SmartLipo is its short recovery time: most patients can resume work, dinner parties, beach cookouts — and virtually any normal summer activity — a week after treatment.
Get Rid of “Man Boobs” for Good
Guys, are you looking forward to surfing or hitting the beach or pool with your girl this summer? If you’re a guy who has a little extra flab on his chest, an effect known as “man boobs,” this season can be a tricky one for you. Don’t let embarrassment cause you to miss out on “shirtless” activities this summer—consider male breast reduction surgery, a procedure that removes extra fat from your chest, giving you a more defined and masculine look.
