How many of us get ready for summer by denying ourselves meals, running 943 miles each day and counting every single calorie we get within 10 feet of? Ok, not most of us but a few do!
Getting ready for summer usually involves a lot worrying about what we’ll look like in our bathing suits, and therefore how best to go about losing those pounds. Some folks go to the extreme and lose a LOT of weight. By the same token, many women who have had children want their pre-pregnancy bodies back. Both of these groups of people fall into the category of people who may consider plastic surgery to attain that look quickly. There are a number of procedures that may help:
I make mention of ‘getting to the beach’ and ‘getting ready for summer’, but it must be noted that the above procedures have real, tangible and lasting beneficial health impacts. Overall, most patients that undergo these procedures end up with a healthier lifestyle, incorporating better diet and fitness efforts and resulting in a more positive outlook on life. So please don’t think these procedures are purely aesthetic – history has shown that they can also greatly enhance the lifestyle and mindset of the patient.
The costs for these procedures can vary widely depending on where you live so I would advise speaking with a local doctor or two to get the idea. It’s also a great idea to speak with others that have undergone these procedures to get a better understanding of the costs, recovery periods and other information you’re sure to want to know.
A great resource for a lot of this is plasticsurgery.org but even better, on their website, is a page dedicated to 3d videos of the procedures. Check it out here.
Whether your intention is to firm up for summer or to start yourself on a lifelong lifestyle change and get your body back into share, develop better eating habits and get a fitness regimen underway, a cosmetic procedures such as a tummy tuck or a mommy makeover is a good place to start – once you’ve spent the money on it and gone through the surgical procedure and recovery period, you’ll be far less likely to let your health backslide.
