Many of our resolutions for 2013 revolve around self improvement, either spiritual, emotional or physical. For some this includes trying to achieve a better, healthier lifestyle, incorporating good nutrition and physical activity for possible weight loss. While a balanced diet and regular exercise are an integral part of healthy living, sometimes a little help from your plastic surgeon can help achieve your beauty goals. For some of us, fat has accumulated in areas such as our belly, flanks or thighs that simply does not respond to diet and exercise. Liposuction would be a great procedure to explore as potential treatment to remove fat from those areas. For others, child bearing may produce loose belly skin and muscles or droopy breasts, whereas weight loss results in excess skin in some parts of the body, such as the abdomen, arms or thighs. These patients may benefit from body contouring procedures such as abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), breast lift (mastopexy) with or without silicone or saline breast implants, brachioplasty (arm lift) or thigh lift.
Many of the aesthetic plastic surgery procedures performed today involve minimally invasive surgery, resulting in tiny, imperceptible scars with very short recovery times. These may be combined with non-invasive rejuvenation procedures such as Botox® and fillers or fat injections, depending on each patient’s wishes. In order to look your best for the New Year, engage the help of your cosmetic plastic surgeon to obtain the great results you are seeking.
