Are You Beach Ready? By Carmel Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeons on March 07, 2012

Are You Beach Ready?

Spring is coming quickly and so are thoughts of becoming "beach ready".  Good for those of you that are already ready for the beach and bikinis.  For the rest of us, it means getting serious about considering some body enhancing procedures such as breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and/or liposuction. We invite you to visit us here at Carmel Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeons located just north of Indianapolis to discuss these procedures and more.

Breast Augmentation

One of our most popular cosmetic procedures targeted to make you "beach ready" is breast augmentation with or without a breast lift or mastopexy. Breast augmentation will increase the fullness and projection of the breast such that it improves the overall 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.

At your consultation, a variety of issues regarding the breast implants themselves will be discussed by your surgeon including the type of implant as well as its shape and size. The procedure including incision site (areolar, inframammary,or axillary) and position of the implants (submuscular or submammary) as well as the risks and benefits of the procedure will be reviewed. Next, you will be examined, measured, and photographed.  Before and after pictures of previous patients who underwent breast augmentation are available at the office to look at during your appointment. You will be told what you can expect before, during, and after the procedure.

Tummy Tuck

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.
