Top 5 Procedures to Get You Ready for Bikini Season

Spring is in full bloom, and summer isn’t far behind. If you are planning a getaway to explore the beautiful beaches of Maryland and Virginia, you’ll want to look and feel your best while you soak up the sunshine and bask in the ocean breeze. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Eric Desman can help you get the beach body of your dreams. Here are our top five most-requested procedures to gear up for swimsuit season.

Breast Enhancement

Of the millions of cosmetic surgeries performed in the U.S. each year, breast augmentation remains the most popular way for women to achieve their ideal breast size and shape. Implants can correct issues such as undersized or asymmetrical breasts, giving you the confidence to flaunt your sexy cleavage in a bikini top. Our Rapid Recovery breast enlargement can balance your silhouette, expand your range of clothing choices, and make you feel self-assured whether you’re wearing a bathing suit, low-cut top, or nothing at all.


Liposuction is another go-to procedure for plastic surgery patients. While your regular workouts and sensible dietary choices can go a long way toward helping you slim, tone, and shape your body, you may still struggle with stubborn fat pockets that affect your self-esteem. With liposuction, Dr. Desman can spot-tone these areas and increase your motivation to pursue your fitness goals. If you’re already at or near your target weight and still struggling with excess fat on your belly, hips, thighs, or neck, achieve your ideal shape with the targeted toning liposuction can provide.

Tummy Tuck

Many women struggle with excess fat and loose skin in their abdominal region, especially after weight loss or pregnancy. While targeted exercises like crunches and planks can help firm and strengthen your core, you won’t see the sexy, toned abs you’ve worked so hard for if belly fat is standing in the way. A tummy tuck can remove unwanted fat and lax skin, while tightening separated abdominal muscles. If you are close to your goal weight and no longer planning to have children, you may be an excellent candidate for a full or mini tummy tuck.

Breast Lift

Your breasts can undergo significant changes throughout your life as a result of pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight fluctuations. Over time, gravity and a loss of skin elasticity can lead to significant breast sagging, medically known as ptosis. A breast lift can correct this condition and restore your breasts to a perky, youthful, uplifted position. As one of Virginia’s leading breast lift specialists, Dr. Desman can correct breasts that have become flattened or elongated with age and take years from your appearance.

Thigh Lift

Shapely legs look sexy in a bikini, but over time, you may find your legs don’t respond as well to exercises like squats, lunges, and leg lifts as you’d like. By performing a thigh lift, Dr. Desman will reshape your legs by removing lax skin and unwanted fatty tissue. After your surgery, you’ll enjoy a toned appearance and a renewed commitment to maintaining your look with a consistent workout regimen.
