Some questions & answers about Plastic Surgery and Summer....

What is the type of procedures most often requested to get the body ready for the beach season?

 

The main surgical procedures requested by this time of the year are directed towards body contouring.  The most frequent relates to localised fat deposits, mainly in the abdomen, hips and thighs. So I can say that lipoplasty ( liposuction or liposculpture) will be the most performed surgical procedure, followed by abdominoplasty or lipoabdominoplasty (tummy tuck). But we must also consider breast surgery, mainly breast augmentation, as it is more frequently requested during the summer season.


Why are these kinds of procedures more popular just before the summer?

 

It is related to the summer holidays when everyone will be more exposed in their swimsuits and bikinis. And this is as valid for women as it is for men. Also the Gyms, nutrition consultations and diets will have their “high season” at this time. 

In my opinion, anyone opting for these procedures should plan them well ahead of the summer months, that is to say between October and March. This will allow sufficient time for full recovery and furthermore, there will be less discomfort in terms of the patient wearing compression garments which are usually recommended in the post-op period.
