3 Body Contouring Procedures That Put Winter to Work for You

When it’s time to pull your winter sweaters and heavy coats out, you might not be thinking of worrying about getting your summer body ready just yet. But did you know that the cooler winter months could be the best time for body contouring to see results in time for the warm summer sunshine to return?

Under the cover of cold winter weather, you could schedule these three body contouring procedures to start working on your summer body while the snow falls.

1. Tummy Tuck

For lots of women and men, the appearance of loose or sagging skin or muscle tissue in their abdominal area is impossible to improve through diet and exercise alone. This can lead to feelings of self-consciousness and a poor body image, especially when summer rolls around and it’s time to unpack bikinis and swim trunks.

If this is a concern for you, a tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty, could be able to help. A Tummy tuck can help to remove excess skin and tighten existing skin and muscle tissue for an overall smoother and more toned look and feel.

When considering a tummy tuck, keep in mind that you’ll have a few different options, including a drain-free tummy tucks. This technique is becoming more and more popular, as drains can be uncomfortable, painful and stressful to deal with after your procedure. Thus, one of the biggest benefits of a no-drain tummy tuck is that recovery is usually less complicated and quicker.

If this sounds like a technique that you’d be interested in for your body contouring procedure, make sure you choose a plastic surgeon with experience performing drain-free tummy tucks.

2. Liposuction

Liposuction is an excellent body contouring tool, but you’ll see the best results by adopting healthy diet and exercise habits and reaching your target weight first.

The vast majority of people who decide to get a tummy tuck also add liposuction to their procedure. While a tummy tuck can very nicely address excess skin and muscle tissue, it is unable to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat without liposuction. Soif pesky love handles, bra rolls or a “beer belly” are getting in the way of your summer physique, consider adding liposuction to your winter tummy tuck for enhanced results.

3. Mommy Makeover

Many women who have children have come to believe that trading in their bikini for a one-piece simply comes with the territory of motherhood, but this doesn’t have to be the case. Sure, pregnancy and breastfeeding can change the way your body looks and feels, but these changes don’t have to be permanent.

A mommy makeover allows you to choose which cosmetic procedures you’d like to include in a single surgery. For many women, a tummy tuck, liposuction and breast enhancement are the most common, but you can completely custom-tailor your procedure to match your cosmetic goals. And the best part? A mommy makeover combines several procedures, but only requires a single recovery period. Soif you plan your mommy makeover over winter break, you could be well on your way to flaunting your new curves all summer long.

Whether you choose a tummy tuck, liposuction or mommy makeover, you will need to plan for some downtime and be patient while your final results continue to develop over the course of about six months. But plan your body contouring procedure just right, and your results could be fully developed come June!
