Spring break and summer vacation will be here before you know it, which means now is the time to think about trimming down from the holidays and getting your beach body ready. By scheduling body contouring procedures this winter, you’ll be fully healed and ready to show off your newly-enhanced figure when the warm weather arrives. Burgess Plastic Surgery offers a variety of body contouring procedures in Portland to remove loose skin and localized fat deposits while tightening and lifting.
Unlike traditional liposuction surgery, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, relatively new fat loss procedure that freezes and permanently removes unwanted fat cells in your trouble areas. CoolSculpting is FDA-approved to treat eight areas on both men and women, including the:
- Thighs, including above knees
- Love handles
CoolSculpting can remove stubborn fat that you can’t manage with diet and exercise alone. In as little as an hour, you’ll leave our Lake Oswego office ready to enjoy everyone’s favorite season here in Portland.
While there is no downtime following a CoolSculpting appointment, it can take eight to 12 weeks before results are fully visible. You may also need more than one CoolSculpting treatment, depending on how much fat you’d like to remove.
In the end, you may lose nearly a quarter of your fat cells in treated areas without worry of them ever returning. However, you’ll want to commit to a healthy lifestyle to maintain your results.
While CoolSculpting removes localized areas of body fat, body lifts can tone and tighten areas in which you’ve already lost weight but now have excess or drooping skin. Our Portland patients visit Burgess Plastic Surgery for several body lift procedures, including:
If you’re at a stable weight but need help shaping your body before summer, one or more of our body lift procedures may be right for you.
Breast Lift and Augmentation
For many women, the appearance of their breasts can be a source of embarrassment when it’s time for revealing summer clothes like bikinis, tank tops and sundresses. A breast lift or breast augmentation can give you the confidence boost you need this season.
A breast lift contours your chest by raising and tightening your breasts for a perkier look. It’s a good option for women with:
- Saggy or droopy breasts
- Breasts that have lost shape or volume
- Breasts that appear flat or elongated
- Nipples that sit below the breast crease
- Nipples or areolas that point downward
Breast augmentation enhances rather than lifts the breasts. It’s an ideal procedure for women who:
- Think their breasts are too small
- Want to increase breast volume
- Have one breast that’s smaller than the other
- Don’t like the shape or appearance of their breasts
In some cases, women will combine a breast lift with breast augmentation to both raise and reshape their breasts for a fuller, more youthful look. Dr. Elisa Burgess can help you determine if both procedures are needed to meet your body contouring goals.
