Spring Into Spring
Spring into Spring
For some, thinking about the upcoming summer months brings pleasure. But for those of us not comfortable with our bodies after a long, hard winter and adding on a few extra pounds, the season for light clothing and the beach can bring dread.
In preparation for this year's swimsuit season, Carmel Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeons offers you a variety of cosmetic procedures designed to optimize your body and and enhance your beach experience.
One of our most popular cosmetic procedures targeted to make you "beach ready" is breast augmentation with or without a breast lift or mastopexy.
The goal of breast augmentation is to increase the fullness and projection of the breast such that it improves the balance in a woman's figure.
The two main types of implants used for breast augmentation are saline and silicone gel. Saline implants are made of smooth silicone shells filled with a sterile saline solution. Should saline implants rupture or leak, the saline is safely absorbed by the body. Silicone gel implants are also made of smooth silicone shells, however, they are filled with a sterile silicone gel. Both types of implants have been approved by the FDA.
Implant placement, type, and size will be determined based on your breast anatomy, body type, and desired increase in size.
Also popular in preparation for swimsuit season is abdominoplasty or "tummy tuck". This procedure can help provide you with the flat abdomen we all desire.
An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen and tightens the abdominal wall musculature. Although not a substitute for diet and weight loss, it will improve the overall contour of the abdomen.
Just need some improved body contouring? Liposuction may be the answer for you. Liposuction can slim or reshape specific areas of the body by removing localized or regional excess fat deposits.
If any of these procedures sounds like they may be right for you, we would love to get you started.Contact us to schedule a consultation. Carmel Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeons provides a supportive environment in which you can feel at ease to discuss your goals.
