3 Body Contouring Procedures to Transform Your Shape Before Summer

With the first day of summer a little more than two months away, you may already be dreaming of long days, lazy afternoons spent poolside, and meals cooked entirely on the grill. You can get ahead and make this summer your best yet by booking a body contouring surgery in the springtime. Here’s the skinny on three procedures you can consider.

1. Tummy Tuck

As one of our most requested procedures among women and men alike, the tummy tuck can restore a flat, toned abdominal contour and tighten muscles that have become separated under the strain of pregnancy. Many people are genetically predisposed to carry extra fat in the abdominal region, which is why diet and exercise alone are often not enough to help you lose a prominent pooch.

If your abdominal region has always been a trouble spot for you, or you struggle with loose folds of skin and unwanted pockets of belly fat, you may be an ideal candidate for abdominoplasty to help you achieve a midsection you’ll be proud to show off by this summer.

2. Liposuction

Liposuction has remained an enduringly popular procedure since its introduction in the early 1970s, and it’s easy to understand why. It’s a straightforward surgery that allows you to target and remove stubborn fat from specific regions of your body, even ones that do not respond to your efforts in the gym. Liposuction is excellent as a stand-alone surgery, or as an enhancement to other procedures such as a tummy tuck or male breast reduction.

With liposuction, Dr. Desman can help you attain a slimmer shape for almost any trouble zone on your body, including:

  • The Neck and “Double Chin”
  • The Upper-arms
  • The Belly, including “Love Handles” or “Muffin-Top”
  • Thighs and Hips

Liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure, and there is a limit to how much fat Dr. Desman can safely remove with his cutting-edge techniques. However, if you commit to maintaining your results through sensible nutrition and a consistent fitness routine, you will enjoy a shapelier body over the long term.

3.  Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a tried-and-true body contouring procedure. If you are dissatisfied with the size, shape, or projection of your breasts and wish to create a perkier or better-rounded contour, Dr. Desman can offer you a variety of options. Today’s breast implants are safer than ever and provide a very natural-looking appearance for women who want to improve their sense of femininity and self-confidence.

For even better results, you may choose to combine your breast augmentation with other contouring techniques, such as a lift or reduction. Women who have undergone breast procedures with Dr. Desman report a high satisfaction rate, thanks to his years of experience and his innovative approach to enabling rapid recovery.
