Are you bikini-ready? Summer may still be months away but it’s not too early to start thinking about your beach body. In fact, at Divino Plastic Surgery, we believe the winter season is a great time to address any summer body concerns you may have. In this blog post, we discuss the benefits of undergoing plastic surgery during the winter and share the perfect procedures to achieve your summer beach body.
The Perks of Plastic Surgery During the Winter
Although you will see immediate results after your cosmetic procedure, it may take three to six months for the final results to appear. For example, if you choose to undergo breast augmentation, it may take your implants several weeks to settle into a lower, more natural position. If you have tummy tuck surgery, liposuction or another body contouring procedure, it may take months for any residual swelling to subside completely. It also takes at least six months for incision scars to fade and begin to match the color of your surrounding skin. During this time, it is imperative for you to get plenty of rest to allow your body to properly heal.
If you seek a slimmer waistline, fuller breasts or thinner arms by summertime, we recommend you schedule surgery in the winter. During the winter season, it is easier to stay inside and avoid outdoor physical activities that may cause you pain during your recovery. And if you have children, you can recover in peace and quiet while they are at school. Social schedules also tend to slow down after the New Year, allowing you to recover at home with less distractions.
Body Contouring with Divino Plastic Surgery
Body contouring procedures remove unwanted fat and sculpt the body for more attractive curves. Some of our most popular beach body procedures include:
- Liposuction to slim and tone the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, upper arms and neck.
- Breast augmentation to add shape and volume to small breasts.
- Breast lift to perk up saggy, drooping breasts and nipples.
- Tummy tuck to get rid of “muffin tops,” “spare tires,” or “love handles.”
- Male breast reduction for a flatter, more masculine-looking chest.
Is your skin ready for summer? We also offer plenty of spa treatments for beautiful, flawless skin. Our laser treatments can get rid of unwanted body hair or minimize the appearance of unsightly stretch marks, leg veins and scars. We also offer acne scar treatment for a smoother, more beautiful complexion just in time for summer.
