Are You Scared To Put On That New Bikini? You Don’t Have To Be!

Are You Scared To Put On That New Bikini? You Don’t Have To Be! - Edward Love MD

As we enter these last few weeks of summer, it’s important to squeeze in as much fun in the sun as we can before fall and winter get here. Unfortunately, for many women, what should be a leisurely and relaxing trip to the pool can create a real sense of anxiety when it comes time to put on a swimsuit.

The good news is that our team at The Plastic Surgery Institute is here to help! We offer numerous cosmetic surgery procedures at our office located adjacent to the Baptist Health campus, and we’re Arkansas’ leading liposuction and tummy tuck specialists. We’re a phone call or a mouse click away when you want to schedule a consultation to find the perfect option to help you regain confidence in your appearance. Here’s a quick look at a couple of procedures that will help you get that beach-ready body that you deserve:

Liposuction-Many women struggle with persistent fat deposits that create a disproportionate figure, and cannot seem to tighten certain areas no matter how faithful that they are to proper diet and exercise. The liposuction procedure can often be performed on an outpatient basis, and the way that it works is pretty simple. Excess fat tissue is surgically removed, and liposuction results include reshaped body contours and a slimmer appearance. Liposuction is not an effective treatment for cellulite or obesity, and good candidates for the procedure should be healthy and relatively fit, with firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone. Liposuction can be performed alone, or along with other procedures such as a tummy tuck.

Tummy Tucks-Factors such as multiple pregnancies, genetics, and substantial weight loss can all contribute to the development of loose skin, fat deposits, and stretch marks in the abdominal region. With an Abdominoplasty, the excess skin is removed, and the abdomen muscles are tightened. A tummy tuck will give your stomach a flat, firm appearance, with minimal scarring. The scarring for an abdominoplasty is hip to hip in the bikini area (much like an extended c-section scar) and around the belly button.
