Winter weather means hiding under puffy coats and sweaters and stretchy leggings. Hopefully, you’re making use of your time indoors by amping up your workout routine. But if you’re like most of us, you’re hiding your body flaws under bulky winter clothing. Summertime will be here before you know it, which means sporting tank tops, bathing suits, and shorts. Whether you want to improve your bust size or get a trimmer waistline, plastic surgery in Manhattan can help. Today on the blog, learn about three popular plastic surgery options to get this winter.

Breast Augmentation

Breast shape and volume changes with age. For many women, these changes cause low self-esteem and body confidence. Manhattan breast surgeon, Dr. Preminger, offers breast implants as a way to restore volume and size. Traditional silicone and saline breast implants are offered at our boutique plastic surgery practice in Manhattan. Other popular choices are the Gummy Bear implant and the leading-edge saline-based implants. Patients love the Gummy Bear implants because they are the only implant that utilizes a cohesive gel that forms a pear shape. Gummy Bear implants look and feel more natural than traditional silicone varieties. The other type of hybrid implants are filled with saline but designed to mimic the look of silicone. With these implants, you get the best of both words – the natural look of silicone but with the safety of saline.

During your consultation for breast implants, discuss with Dr. Preminger your beauty goals and any concerns that you may have about the procedure so that she can recommend the best implants for you. It takes roughly 8-12 weeks for post-op swelling to subside completely, making winter the best time to get breast implants. You’ll be ready by summer!

Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty, as it is called, tightens loose abs and removes sagging skin and fat pockets. It can be difficult to achieve a slender midsection with the most rigorous exercise routine and a strict diet. Patients love tummy tucks because it provides a way to achieve tighter, toned abs, and eliminates excess stomach fat. February is a great time to get a tummy tuck because you have plenty of time to heal and for the post-op swelling to subside in time for summer. To be a candidate for a tummy tuck, you should be within a reasonable weight. Tummy tucks are not a weight loss solution. Instead, the purpose is to tighten loose abs and remove minimal body fat, along with loose, saggy skin. Complete recovery from a tummy tuck may take as long as 8-12 weeks, meaning you can sport your summer attire as soon as the weather breaks.


Does that double chin have you feeling self-conscious about your looks? There is a lot to love about getting a facelift. This surgical procedure not only eliminates excess pockets of fat and loose skin, but it eliminates wrinkles too. As we age, skin loses collagen, making it more susceptible to sagging, specifically in delicate areas like the face. A facelift can have you looking and feeling youthful again. Choose a board-certified plastic surgeon in Manhattan to ensure your results look natural. Facelift recovery can take 2-3 weeks, although recovery from a mini facelift may only last a few days before you can return to your usual activities.
