A beautiful beach bod wasn’t created overnight…or was it? While the constants for having a good figure will always be diet and exercise, let’s face it, sometimes cosmetic surgery is the best solution. We pride ourselves on being a full service plastic surgery facility, with surgical and non-surgical options for helping you look and feel your best. Dr. Hartog strongly believes in offering his patients various procedures provided they will ultimately help his patients achieve their physical goals. My joke (albeit a bad one) is that “Dr. Hartog stays aBREAST of the latest technology.” So let’s chat about some ways to get your dream bathing suit bod.
1. Breast Enhancement: There is no question this is still our most popular procedure. The wonderful news is that there are more options today for enhancing the breasts than ever before. Of course, the most known procedure are breast implants. Augmentation takes under an hour to perform and only requires five to seven days for recovery roughly. The second option, that we are doing more and more each week, is fat grafting to create fuller breasts. The beauty of fat grafting is that Dr. Hartog can literally put fat exactly where you want it!
2. Liposuction: We all have that stubborn area that even with proper diet and exercise won’t budge. That’s where liposuction comes in. Lipo is not a weight loss procedure; it’s more about contouring an area(s). The ideal candidate for liposuction is really someone fairly close to their ideal weight. There are various types of liposuction and we offer all of them here at The Bougainvillea Clinique. There is even a technique that can create the perfect six-pack abs!
3. Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck): For some people fat is not the only issue, it’s stretched excess skin. While a tummy tuck comes with a scar, it truly has one of the highest satisfaction rates of any surgery. Patients are thrilled to get a flat taut stomach again. There are three components to abdominoplasty surgery: removal of excess skin, tightening of abdominal muscles and modest amount of liposuction.
4. Brazilian Butt Lift: This procedure is the most searched surgery currently! Women are wanting to create a fuller rounder bottom. While there are buttock implants they come with myriad of problems. Now, using the new techniques, like that are used for breast enhancement, fat grafting can be done in the buttocks. Again, the luxury of fat grafting is that it can be placed exactly where the patient wants! And the icing on the cake, is that lipo comes with the procedure. It’s the ultimate TWOFER!
Cosmetic surgery is not to be taken lightly and must always be treated with respect. It’s imperative to do your homework and go to a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. There is no question though that plastic surgery can really help you look and feel your best!
