Prepare for Summer with a San Diego Tummy Tuck!

Posted on July 29, 2013 by - Body Procedures, Tummy Tuck

So you’re still not confident about your beach body? Today is actually the perfect time for you to gear up for that confident swimsuit look. With summer just a few weeks away, it looks like everyone is looking forward to spending lots of time in the sun and sand. With the proper diet, regular exercise, and a visit to Dr. Chacon’s Divino Plastic Surgery office clinic in San Diego, getting in shape for summer with a San Diego Tummy Tuck is not far from reach!

Here are some practical tips to help you get in shape just before this year’s summer begins!

Eat Smart

It’s no brainer that “clean” foods versus processed ones are healthier and have fewer calories. Fewer calories equate to less weight gain. Try to eat clean by feasting on vegetables, fruits, and whole grains.

Ditch the sugary sodas and drinks and opt for water flavored with your favorite fruit. You can also use natural sweeteners such as honey and cinnamon. Lastly, you might want to steer clear of refined carbohydrates from white bread, pastries, and the majority of processed foods. The carbohydrates in these food items will quickly spike your blood sugar, making you hungry again sooner than expected. Eating more lean proteins can help you feel fuller longer and help you eat fewer carbohydrates.

You may also want to make room for fats, the healthy ones that is! Cutting on butter and cooking oils will surely reduce your fat consumption yet keep in mind that you need fats for the fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K) to take effect. Choose healthy fats like olive oil, avocados, nuts and fish.

Lastly, cook your own meals.  Cooking means you know what’s in there and you save yourself the hidden calories of additives and other ingredients.

Burn More

Burn more calories!  You do not have to actually go to your nearest gym every day. Walk or bike your way to school or work. Use the stairs. Do a few laps in the pool every day in the morning or afternoon. Just keep moving!

San Diego Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is a perfect fix for excess skin and tissue after you have lost weight or given birth.  The sagging abdominal skin and love handles that come with weight loss and the after effects of childbirth could be remedied with an abdominoplasty.  An abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a tummy tuck, improves the appearance of your torso by reducing the amount of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen, giving you a more toned and tightened midriff

Dr. Chacon’s unique approach to your San Diego tummy tuck is not just about the removal of excess fat and skin. It is geared towards helping you achieve a balanced and aesthetically pleasing body just in time for summer, by addressing your personal needs and goals.
