Spring Will Be Here Before You Know It, So Prepare To Get Some Likes With A Refresh
- Posted on: Mar 1 2018
As you run around this winter season bundled up in cozy capes, fur vests, and your go-to boots, you may not necessarily be focused on swimsuit season. But warm weather will be here before you know it and you will be donning clothes that put the spotlight on bare arms and legs, and an exposed midriff. Get ahead of the curve and start planning now for clothes that don’t give you the cover the way your favorite chunky sweater does.
Whether it’s a tummy tuck, labiaplasty, or cosmetic breast surgery, double-board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Orna Fisher has the expertise to help you get uncovered as warm weather months begin to loom on the calendar. The procedures mentioned above involve recovery time so if it’s something you have been thinking about since last summer the time to act is now so you are ready when the beach beckons.
A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty can make a huge difference in your self-confidence and appearance especially as spring approaches. If there is a significant amount of loose skin, women can opt for an abdominoplasty, aka tummy tuck, where the muscles are tightened on the inside, the excess skin is removed on the outside, and the bellybutton is reshaped and put back in its proper location. The scar, which runs from hip to hip, hides in the bathing suit or underwear line. Post-surgery, there is a relatively lengthy period of recovery time and final results will not be noticeable right away, so this is a procedure you should consider now while you can hide under your cold weather wear.
A less obvious body part, yet, no less important is the labia. A procedure to consider, if putting on a bathing suit makes you apprehensive, is labiaplasty, which is the removal of excess tissue from the labia. “When wearing a bikini, a lot of women are very self-conscious that the extra skin in the genital area is going to be visible and they are embarrassed or uncomfortable with that,” said Dr. Fisher. “Labiaplasty is definitely something that can get women swimsuit ready. The age group spanning from the 20s to the 40s is typically what I see for that procedure. Women find that procedure very rewarding because they just feel much more confident and comfortable in tight clothing, fitness attire, and bathing suit.”
Cosmetic Breast Surgery
Breast enhancement is a popular procedure for those who spend a lot of time at the beach and poolside, or simply for those who want to look and feel more proportionate. But there is often confusion between a lift and augmentation. “Most women who want a breast lift, have lost volume in their breasts from pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight fluctuations. They miss the volume that they used to have as their breasts changed and hang differently,” Dr. Fisher states. “Weight loss and the natural process of aging can also contribute to breasts losing their shape and taking on a deflated or saggy appearance over time.” To address these changes, Dr. Fisher performs breast lift surgery which creates a more youthful breast shape regardless of size. With a lift, the nipple areolar complex is raised to the correct position on the breast and the breast mound itself is made more compact and perky.
As for augmentation, the goal is to have the appearance of larger breasts, oftentimes with a bit of added volume at the top. This is done using breast implants, most often placed under the pectoralis muscle of the chest. “A breast augmentation with a breast implant can both enhance the size of the breast and increase the volume at the top where it may seem too flat,” advises Dr. Fisher. “Just by enhancing the breast, women can feel so much better about themselves in a swimsuit.”
There are so many women from their teens to their 60s who are helped to become more confident and proportionate with these procedures.
Whatever needs to be refreshed or revamped for the upcoming warm weather months, Dr. Fisher assures that she “will make sure that you get the look you want, and I will also make sure you know as much as possible about the choice you are making.”
