This Fall, Take Time For Yourself

We know how busy things can get, especially in the summer. Juggling activities and vacations can make it difficult to set aside time just for you. But now the kids are back in school, fall is around the corner….and this is the perfect opportunity to take some time for yourself!

Fall can actually be a great time to undergo just about any type of cosmetic surgery, for a number of reasons. Recovery can be easier in the fall – the weather is cooler, and it’s likely that you’ll be mainly indoors and looking to take it a little easier. Once you do start moving around and going outside again, thicker clothes and layers can help hide any post-surgery scars, dressings, or garments. Additionally, most people are settled into their post-summer routines, which can make it a little easier to plan for consultations, surgery, and post-op visits.

If you’ve been considering a body contouring or breast augmentation procedure, scheduling your procedure in the fall gives you ample recovery time so you can show off the new you – and your improved confidence – during the holiday season!

While body contouring procedures can be done in different areas, one of the most sought-after results is a flatter and smoother abdomen. Abdominoplasty (aka. tummy tuck) and liposuction are both body-contouring procedures that aim to change the appearance of your midsection and make the stomach appear flatter and tighter. Liposuction may be a good fit if you are looking to remove fat deposits (commonly found on the hips, thighs, buttocks or stomach area), while a tummy tuck removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen and tightens the core muscles. This is a good option for those with loose abdominal skin or muscles that have some separation.

When it comes to breast enhancement, two of the most popular procedures are breast lift and breast augmentation/enlargement. If you want larger breasts, then augmentation is the procedure for you, and your plastic surgeon can help walk you through the advantages of different types of implants, incision location, implant placement, and more. A breast lift, on the other hand, can help correct drooping caused by loss of breast volume that can occur with age, fluctuations in weight, or childbirth. There are different techniques for lifts, and the one that is right for your depends on the amount of breast volume, tissue, and the degree of droop.
