Surgical Contouring Procedures to Prep for Summer

Summer will be here before we know it, but there’s still plenty of time to get the surgical contouring procedure you need to look and feel your best! It can take some time to recover and for swelling to completely diminish, so if you want to be completely healed and presentable by summer, you should start planning now! Here are some of the top surgical contouring procedures to prep for summertime.


Eating the right foods and getting enough exercise is the best way to get your body ready for summer, but for some individuals, this isn’t enough to eliminate pockets of stubborn fat. If you’re finding it impossible to eliminate pockets of fat, you might consider liposuction. Liposuction uses a cannula to break up fat cells, removing them for good. After several weeks you can enjoy not only a reduction of fat, but an improved contour and overall balance that you’ll be happy to show off once the weather gets warmer.

Vaser Liposuction

Vaser Liposuction offers a less invasive alternative to traditional liposuction, using ultrasound energy to break up fat cells instead of a cannula. This results in a shorter recovery time with most patients only needing one or two days of rest. As swelling diminishes, you can begin to see your improved contour. This can take several months, so even though the recovery is short, you’ll still want to plan ahead.

Tummy Tuck

Achieving a flat stomach can be impossible with loose skin and tissue getting in the way. A tummy tuck can remove this excess tissue and tighten the abdominal muscles to show a toned, contoured midsection. Like any surgical procedure, you will need time to heal following a tummy tuck. However, getting your procedure now can ensure you are looking and feeling your best when summer comes around.
