Good Plastic Surgery Options for the Summer Months By Stuart Baker on June 13, 2017

A woman splashing in the poolAs the weather's getting warmer and summer's approaching, it's time to get ready for trips to the pool, the lake, the beach, or even abroad. That also means some potential concern about how you'll look and if that beach body is ready. Thankfully our plastic surgery practice serving the greater Springfield area has plenty of options for enhancing your beach body and helping you look great. This includes body contouring and sculpting surgery, breast enhancement, and the latest in skin care procedures.

There are many ways you can enhance your appearance for the warmer months. Let's look at some of the most popular cosmetic surgery and skin care options for the summer.


If you have unwanted pockets of fat in different parts of the body, you know how hard it can be to slim down and look your very best. Many times this fat won't respond to diet and exercise. What's more, spot reduction is a myth, which means that all the crunches and cardio in the world is no guarantee that the lower abdominal region or the stubborn love handles will go away.

This is where liposuction is such a great option to consider. Liposuction uses carefully targeted suction to remove fat from specific areas of the body. With the fat removed, patients will look trimmer, slimmer, and more athletic, which is ideal for wearing bathing suits and hitting the water.

Breast Enhancement Options

Many women want to have youthful, enticing curves when they're out in the sun. To enhance the overall appearance of the bustline, there are different breast enhancement surgeries to consider.

  • Breast Augmentation – Thanks to the use of breast implants, plastic surgeons can enhance the size, shape, and overall appearance of a woman's breasts.

  • Breast Lift – For women with drooping and sagging breasts, an ideal option to consider is a breast lift, which makes the breast perkier and firmer.

  • Breast Reduction – When women have breasts that are pendulous, a breast reduction can reduce excessive sagging and help them look their very best.

The ideal option for you and your needs can be discussed during the consultation process.

Laser Hair Removal

Unsightly hair along the bikini line, on the legs, and on the back can leave you feeling self-conscious about shedding clothes to bask in the sun. While shaving, waxing, and tweezing are all potential options for hair removal, laser hair removal is generally the most ideal. A few sessions of laser hair removal can keep various parts of the body smooth and hair-free.

Spider Vein Removal

Those red and blue spider veins on the calves and thighs can lead you to feel very self-conscious about your overall appearance. There are plenty of options for getting rid of these spider veins, including sclerotherapy and laser vein removal options. These can work wonders when you're wearing shorts in the sun.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

If you have issues with rough skin, blotchiness, poor texture, or sun damage, there are plenty of skin resurfacing options that can leave your skin looking smooth, soft, and free from blemishes. This might include laser options, microdermabrasion, and other highly effective non-surgical procedures.
