Bikini Body In 6 Weeks!

Plastic Surgery Tips By Dr. Sherrell Aston

One of the most important things that can be done in 6 weeks to be on a sensible diet that is low in carbohydrates and high in fruits, vegetables, and lean meat.

The number of calories consumed each day should be equal to or less than the number of calories burned. Weight loss only occurs when you burn more calories than you consume.

In addition to the diet, engage daily in an aerobic activity such as: walking, jogging, elliptical trainer or sport of one’s choice. Shedding a few pounds and toning the muscles can help with the overall appearance for anyone.

Exfoliation of the skin to get rid of all the dead cells on the surface and daily moisturizers will help the skin have a better glow. A body lotion that has some retinoids in it can help to increase cell turnover and make the skin look better.

Laser hair removal from the bikini area is self-explanatory. However, it may take 2 to 3 weeks and more than 1 session to get the hair loss to the point where one is happy.

Breast augmentation is the number 1 cosmetic procedure in the United States and is, without a question, the best and most straight forward means to make a bikini look good. Breast augmentation surgery requires approximately one and a half hours and one can resume all normal physical activities in 3 weeks.

Sagging breasts can be lifted and large breasts can be reduced, both procedures require more extensive incisions than a breast augmentation but the incisions are hidden within a bikini top.

Liposuction of various areas of the body can produce a change in love handles, tummy, saddle bags, inner thighs, knees and help show off that bikini bottom. Liposuction results are seen immediately but there will be some swelling in the areas for 3 to 4 weeks depending on the amount of liposuction performed. Obvious bruises disappear in 2 to 3 weeks.

Traditional liposuction is still the gold standard for body contouring.

Laser liposuction is a highly advertised procedure that is frequently used but there is no scientific documentation that there is an advantage over traditional liposuction. The stated advantages of skin retraction and tightening with laser liposuction is significantly overstated. Cryolipolysis or freezing of the fat cells without any surgery does work for isolated areas of fat removal such as love handles or a small area on the stomach but is not useful for large areas. The results with cryolipolysis may not be totally obvious for 2 to 3 months following the procedure.

Ultrasound and radio frequency devices for removing fat are producing minimal to a modest degree of results and patient satisfaction. These technologies will likely become more useful with the next generation of devices in the future.

Cellulite cannot be improved appreciably with any method, treatment or device. Constant massaging of the tissues with a number of different devices or even one’s hands can cause enough swelling in the tissues to give a very temporary improvement in the appearance of cellulite. When the swelling disappears, so will the apparent result.

There are a number of procedures that can be performed on the face such as upper and lower eyelid surgery, nasal surgery, short incision facelift, Botox and various kinds of fillers can be used to make one look younger, fresher and more relaxed.
