Spring is almost here, and summer will arrive before we know it. When you look in the mirror, do you feel that your body is not quite ready for summer? You shouldn’t have to feel self-conscious about shedding those extra layers of clothes once the warmer weather arrives in Manhattan. If good nutrition and regular exercise are not producing the results you want, consider having one of these cosmetic surgical procedures at Preminger Plastic Surgery this spring, so that you are ready to show off your new look by summer.
Liposuction is a tried and true method that plastic surgeons use to eliminate areas of excess body fat that have proven stubborn to remove otherwise. A small tube known as a cannula is inserted into the area being treated and then vacuums out the fat. While technically a surgery, liposuction is less invasive than other body contouring surgeries, such as a tummy tuck. Dr. Preminger can combine liposuction with other procedures during a single surgery, minimizing your overall downtime and allowing you to see a more significant change in your appearance.
Regain the slim contours you always wanted, or never were able to achieve, by having a tummy tuck. Clinically known as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck improves or restores the contour of your abdomen area while also smoothing and tightening skin. A tummy tuck is a popular treatment choice for mothers who want to address aesthetic concerns following childbirth such as stretch marks, excess skin, sagging abdominal muscles or C-section scars. While it can take 8-12 weeks for all swelling to diminish, undergoing a tummy tuck in the spring can have you ready to show off your new bikini body by summer. Tummy tucks also are ideal for men wanting to get rid of that belly bulge so that they, too, can feel confident when they hit the beach.
Breast augmentation is the most popular type of cosmetic surgery in America. Surgeons performed nearly 314,000 augmentations in 2018, according to statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. That also represents an increase of 4 percent over 2017 and a 48 percent climb in breast augmentations when compared to the statistics from 2000. An experienced surgeon in Manhattan like Dr. Preminger can use breast augmentation to correct a wide variety of perceived aesthetic flaws including asymmetrical breasts, lack of volume, or increasing overall breast size. Preminger Plastic Surgery can perform an augmentation with hybrid implants. Representing the latest technology in breast implants, hybrid implants combine the safety of saline with the look and feel of silicone.
Age has an inevitable effect on appearance. One common consequence of aging in women is the appearance of sagging breasts. A breast lift, which is known clinically as a mastopexy, can correct the appearance of a falling bust line, diminished volume in the breasts, or downward pointing nipples. This procedure can be ideal for women over the age of 40, who may be noticing changes in the appearance of their breasts due to the effects of age, weight gain or loss, or childbirth. Many women choose to have a breast augmentation, and a breast lift performed simultaneously, which can make a dramatic difference in appearance while combining the recovery time for the two procedures.
Preminger Plastic surgery can perform a breast reduction. Also known as a mammoplasty, this procedure will give you breasts that are firmer, lighter, and smaller with a more consistent shape while bringing greater balance to the contours of your body.
Warm weather is the ideal time of year to break out the tank tops, summer dresses, and sleeveless blouses. Being self-conscious about the appearance of your upper arms can make you avoid going sleeveless, but an arm lift can address those aesthetic issues. Clinically referred to as a brachioplasty, an arm lift has been used in cosmetic surgery since 1954. This procedure removes excess fat from the upper arm while smoothing and tightening skin that has become loose or is sagging.
If you are overweight, losing a significant amount of weight is a tremendous achievement that can prolong both the duration and quality of your life. Sagging skin is an unfortunate and common aesthetic consequence of significant weight loss. In these cases, Preminger Plastic Surgery can perform what is known as a body lift, which combines several body contouring procedures that target different areas to minimize pockets of stubborn fat.
