While exercise, diet, and nutrition are all safe and effective ways to lose weight, these options do not always achieve your desired results. Often, people find that certain areas do not respond to diet and exercise and they may consider surgical options to help them reach their body goals. Especially when the beach season arrives, people are more self-conscious than ever about how they look and feel in a bathing suit! Surgical options, combined with a healthy diet and plenty of exercise, produce much faster and longer-lasting results. The more instant results of cosmetic or weight loss surgery in addition to a healthy lifestyle and exercise can make your dream bikini body a realistic goal.
Read on to learn about surgeries that will help get you into your summer bikini body.
Breast Augmentation: Technically called an augmentation mammoplasty, this procedure can help women feel better about their bodies for a number of reasons. For women who feel their breast size is too small, a breast augmentation can provide body contour enhancement, which allows for that ultra sexy feminine curvature.
Women who have had one or more pregnancies might feel the shape of their breasts has changed for the worse, and a breast augmentation can bring back some of that pre-baby voluptuousness.
Some women enjoy breast augmentation as a corrective procedure, either because their breasts are of two different sizes, or as a post-breast surgery correction. Breast augmentation can be an excellent choice to help fill-out that bikini top without any padding.
Liposuction: Liposuction is a procedure that removes fat from targeted areas of the body, so patients who wish to reduce their overall body size and weight may want to choose a different surgical procedure, while those who want to trim inches from a targeted area are prime candidates for liposuction. Liposuction is a form of body contouring.
Excess fat is removed through a hollow tube that suctions out the fat. A small amount of fluid is injected into the targeted area to loosen the fat cells and reduce bruising. The fat cells are then suctioned out, along with the injected liquid. Depending on the amount of fat to be removed, the procedure may need to be repeated several times in order to avoid creating permanent lumps and skin indentations.
Fat Transfer: Fat transfer goes hand-in-hand with a liposuction procedure. For patients who’d like to enhance their derrière or lips after having liposuction can do so with this procedure. Fat transfer is the optimal choice for many women, because it’s all natural tissue that was already theirs anyway – only now, it’s being used to enhance those feminine areas that need a boost. You can discuss a “Brazilian Butt Lift” or lip injection with your surgeon upon deciding to undergo liposuction.
Tummy Tuck: The tummy tuck is another form of body contouring that targets a specific area. Excess skin and fat are removed from the mid to lower parts of the abdomen, where excess pounds can be very difficult to shed. Tummy tucks are most often performed on men and women whose abdomens have not responded to traditional weight loss programs of diet and exercise, women who have excess abdominal skin as a result of pregnancy, and previously obese patients who have excess skin from extreme weight loss.
Mommy Makeover: Mommies just might be the hardest workers of all, and that’s why the well-deserved “Mommy Makeover” is a great option. Mommy Makeovers include procedures such as a tummy tuck, breast lift, liposuction, and vaginal reconstructive surgery. With a trimmed-down waist line, fuller, livelier breasts, and the confidence that comes with feeling sexy from head to toe (and everywhere in between), mommies can show off their impressive bikini bodies. The extra confidence can boost energy levels, making you an even more dynamic and involved parent.
Diet and Exercise Programs
Weight loss can be achieved through surgery, but a hard bikini body usually cannot be achieved through surgery alone, except in cases in which fat is removed from a targeted area that did not previously respond to diet and exercise. In order to tone your body and keep off the weight you lost through surgical weight loss procedures, a low-fat diet and exercise regimen should be adopted and monitored by a doctor, nutritionist, and/or other professional.
