During the summer, everyone wants a tight, toned body that they can show off at the beach. But, for many of us, diet and exercise alone don’t provide the sculpted and contoured physique that we desire.
In the winter, you have the opportunity to shed stubborn fat and gain your optimal physique before summer rolls around. By undergoing body contouring procedures like liposuction or a tummy tuck in the winter, you’ll have time to recover fully before it’s time to put on a swimsuit and spend time in the sun.
What is Body Contouring?
Body contouring refers to procedures that can add shape and curves to the body. This often involves a tummy tuck and/or liposuction, although you can contour many different areas around the body, including the arms, neck, back, chest, buttocks, and calves. Body contouring is recommended for patients who are at an average weight but want to feel more confident in their bodies.
Winter is an optimal time to undergo body contouring. This is because people generally wear more layers and spend more time inside during the winter. So, you’ll easily be able to recover and conceal any scarring before summer arrives.
- Tummy tuck
The tummy tuck procedure, which is also called abdominoplasty, gives the abdomen a smooth and tight appearance after weight loss, pregnancy, or gastric surgery. In this procedure, loose skin and muscle tissue are tightened while excess skin is removed. This leaves the stomach flatter and more toned.
The liposuction procedure removes stubborn, excess fat from targeted areas of the body for a contoured look. This procedure can be used to eliminate fat that won’t go away despite a consistently healthy diet and regular exercise. During liposuction, a small tube called a cannula is inserted through a small incision and suctions away the excess fat.
