beverlyIn order to get a jumpstart on the skin-revealing days of summer, many of us begin long range planning to watching those calories, working out on treadmills and lifting weights to tone our bodies. Yet for many others, it may mean even considering breast augmentation, a breast lift or liposuction (also known as liposculpture) which can help create a more youthful physique.

Spring can be a perfect time for plastic surgery. Patients’ hectic holiday schedules are behind them, and the cooler weather makes it easier to stay indoors and rest up for a full recovery. Additionally, having surgery now means that the results will be ready to show off in time for the warmer weather.

Patients must also wear a support bra following surgery, which is much easier to conceal under sweaters rather than tank tops or t-shirts. After breast enhancement, women are excited to wear their favorite summer clothing: bathing suits, halter tops, dresses, and perhaps even new styles they’ve never worn before.

After their breast augmentation, many of our patients have fun experimenting with different clothing styles and enjoy the new confidence they feel just walking down the street. For this reason, and for many more, summer is an ideal time to be ready to show off the results of breast enhancement or liposculpting.

Who is a good candidate for breast enhancement surgery?

Women request breast augmentation surgery for a variety of reasons. In addition to increasing the size of small breasts, silicone or saline breast implants can also help correct asymmetrical breasts or restore volume lost as a result of childbirth, breastfeeding, or significant weight loss. The doctors at Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group recognize that no two patients are alike, so they work closely with each woman to educate her about all options, including implant type, placement, incision site, and size. During the consultation, all aspects of the surgery are thoroughly discussed, including risks and recovery expectations.

During the initial consultation, many women discover that they will also need a breast lift or additional procedure to obtain the look they want. This is especially true for women whose breasts droop or sag because of pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss. Whatever the case, Dr. Layke and Dr. Danielpour are committed to giving their breast enhancement patients a customized result that they can enjoy for years to come.

Who is a good candidate for liposuction or “liposculpture”?

One of the most important aspects of successful liposuction is confirming that your skin tone is elastic enough that it will spring back and shrink after removal of the fat from liposuction. In some cases especially in the lower abdomen, skin may be so stretched out that liposuction will reduce the fat bulge but will leave loose skin that is equally undesirable as the fatty bulge. Your surgeon can certainly answer this question during your evaluation.

With so many to choose from, how do I know which liposuction technique is right for me?

Liposuction techniques have advanced to allow for quicker recovery and of course even greater safety. Although there are many new techniques such as laser liposuction and ultrasonic liposuction, the ultimate result depends upon the good judgment of the surgeon and the use of small tubes or cannulas to remove the fat in a precise and predictable manner.
If liposuction is something you may be considering contact Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group to learn more about this “tried and true” procedure to permanently and reliably get rid of unwanted fatty bulges.
