Are You Beach-Body Ready?

June 28th, 2017 | Body - Surgical, Breast, Face - Surgical, Injectables and Fillers

It’s officially Summer! Which means it’s time to pull out the aviator sunglasses, tropical prints, and hit the beach! As the temperature rises and layers of clothing lessen, men and women are taking a good hard look in the mirror and debating whether it’s time for a little cosmetic fix.

Diet and Exercise

As doctors, we recommend diet and exercise in order to reach your beach-body goals. This doesn’t mean you have to join the next fad diet or register for a gym membership, but small strides will definitely lead you in the right direction.

Work daily at eating better. A balanced diet helps your body gain the nutrients it needs to function properly and reduce risks of chronic diseases. Combined with physical activity, your diet can help you reach or maintain a healthy weight.
Endure a physical activity two to three times a week. Exercise cannot only improve your appearance but can also delay the aging process. Visit a nearby park. Walk, jog, or go take your bike for a ride. Park further away. Take stairs instead of the elevator. Staying active is key.

Sometimes the combined duo doesn’t always eliminate problem areas. When this happens, consider cosmetic enhancements.

Cosmetic Enhancements

Summer is probably one of the best times of the year to get work done. The three-month season is plenty of time to request off, ensure recovery time, and still enjoy the results. Depending on which procedure you’re considering, you may experience minimal downtime or up to four weeks of recovery. Take a look at some of the hottest Summer procedures, non-surgical and surgical.

Non-Surgical: Gorgeous skin is a must for Summer! Wearing makeup is essentially useless if you intend to spend your days outside. These options can help eliminate brown spots, rough skin, acne, dead skin, signs of aging and wrinkles. If you are seeking low recovery time with plenty of the season left to show off your new look, then a non-surgical procedure is the way to go.

  • Botox
  • Injectable Fillers
  • Liposuction
  • Chemical Peels

Surgical: Having curves in all the right places is something we all want, especially if we are showing it off in a bathing suit. To achieve the body you want is a process. After surgical procedures, you will have to allow time to heal. You may receive medication or to reduce pain and prevent infection, care instructions to clean surgical sites, and specific instructions on activities to avoid or limit. If you are looking for long-term results and are able to allow weeks-long recovery, then surgical procedures may be best for you.
