Summer’s practically here and for many, that means it’s time for cosmetic surgery and summer beauty treatments. Whether you want a little boost to perk up your bikini body or whether the slow pace of summer means you finally have time for that breast augmentation, the doctors and staff at Hunstad Kortesis Bharti Plastic Surgery + MedSpa are ready to help you look your best this summer and beyond.

Popular Summer Beauty Treatments

What’s hot in Charlotte cosmetic surgery this summer? Let’s take a look at a few of this summer’s cosmetic surgery trends and summer beauty treatments.

Bigger or Smaller? Breast Surgeries Are Always a Favorite

Breast surgeries, like breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction, are one of the most popular cosmetic surgery options for women. Last year more than 420,000 cosmetic breast surgeries were performed in the United States and we expect the number will be similar this year. Take a look at your breasts. Do you wish they were bigger? Less saggy? Smaller? We can help you create the perfect, perky breasts you’ve always wanted.

Liposuction

You’ve been working on your bikini body since Christmas, but for some reason, that muffin top isn’t budging. Summer’s here and there isn’t time for more calorie cutting or crunches. There is still time for liposuction. This body contouring treatment and summer beauty treatment targets pockets of hard-to-lose fat, like love handles, bra rolls, or bat wings. A targeted liposuction treatment will prep your body for bikini season. 

Liposuction is a surgical treatment and a recovery period is needed. For last-minute summer treatments with minimal downtime, we recommend smaller quantities of fat removal, in one or two isolated areas. Most of our patients are back to regular activities in approximately two weeks, often less. 

You may have slight residual swelling this summer, but most of our patients see an immediate, positive improvement to the appearance of treated areas. Liposuction one of the favorite summer beauty treatments and results are very long lasting, provided you maintain a stable weight, and should be enjoyed this summer and for many summers to come. 

Non-Surgical Fat Reduction is Possible

You’ve spent hours at the gym and months counting calories, but still some stubborn fat remains. Liposuction is an option (and a very effective one at that), but we’re noticing more and more patients opt for non-surgical fat reduction.

CoolSculpting is completely non-invasive and uses cold to gently and effectively reduce fat. This procedure uses no needles and no incisions, just an applicator that sits on the skin during treatment and crystalizes and destroys fat cells. These cells are processed and removed by the body permanently.

A single CoolSculpting treatment can reduce your fat layer by 20-25%. Many of our patients receive anywhere from two to ten treatments depending on their starting point and goals – treatments are spaced several months apart.

If you get CoolSculpting now, you won’t enjoy the full results right away. It takes most patients around two months to see initial results, but you’ll still have time to flaunt your flatter tummy in a late season beach trip or two. Maintain your weight and your CoolSculpting results should stick around so you can enjoy them next summer too.

Many patients find this summer beauty treatment practically pain-free. After CoolSculpting, your body will naturally remove the treated fat cells on its own for visible fat reduction in about 2-4 months.

See Your Summery Beauty Treatment Results First

Another big trend in the cosmetic surgery industry, as well as a helpful tool for both surgeon and patient, is pre-surgical imaging. We use Vectra 3D Imaging to give patients a 3-dimensional idea of their results before surgery. This tool allows us to show patients potential results from both face and breast surgeries and makes it easier for you to work with your surgeon to create a surgical plan that ensures the results you want.

This trend is one we expect to stick around. When you take the guesswork out of surgery you can be 100% confident in your decision and delighted with the results. This summer, see yourself with a new look! Schedule a consultation to learn more.

Cosmetic surgery and summer beauty treatment trends might come and go, but one that is constant is the desire to look and feel amazing. We’re here ready to help you achieve that goal.
