Who doesn’t love a new beginning? Throughout the year our lives get busy and priorities stack on top of us making it difficult to put ourselves first. Our jobs, families, friends, and hobbies are all important parts of our lives but if we’re not careful they can come between us and the goals we set for our health and wellbeing. The start of a new year is the perfect time to reclaim our list of goals and focus on the things that make us feel our best. For lots of people that includes making changes to their diet or lifestyle and for many others, it means finally making that appointment to learn more about the plastic surgery they’ve always wanted.
At the Florida Center for Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery, we offer a wide range of procedures including non-surgical treatments, injectables, and high-quality skincare products. But this time of year, booking one of our plastic surgery procedures is a popular choice, and for good reason! Let’s talk about three procedures that can help you look your best in 2024.
For many decades, breast augmentation has been atop the list of most widely performed plastic surgeries in the world. Women love this procedure because it enables them to fit into the clothes and swimsuits they love and walk through life feeling beautiful and confident. During a breast augmentation surgery, an incision is made in the breast tissue and an implant is tucked into the breast area to create a fuller-appearing breast. These implants can be made of silicone or saline depending on your surgeon’s recommendation and your personal goals. Often, breast augmentation is paired with other surgeries, for example, a breast lift. Together these two surgeries pack an incredible punch by lifting the breast tissue to its rightful location and creating a fuller breast. This is especially popular with women who have breastfed or lost significant weight. These two life events can stretch out the breast tissue beyond the point of return. A breast augmentation gives women the fullness they remember from their youth.
Sagging skin is a natural, yet unpopular, part of the aging process. The quality of our skin breaks down due to age, exposure to the sun, and more. The skin on our bellies often loses its elasticity due to weight gain and loss, especially that which occurs during pregnancy. Unfortunately, once the skin is stretched out it often cannot return to its original shape. This leaves patients with hanging skin and extra tissue that is unchanged by any amount of diet or exercise. The tummy tuck is a perfect solution to this problem. During this procedure the excess skin and tissue are removed, the underlying muscles are repaired, and the patient is on their way to recovery. The tummy tuck is not a weight loss procedure and will not prevent fat from returning but it is a great way to regain a toned tummy and stay motivated to maintain the look especially when you pair it with liposuction to remove unwanted fat that just won’t budge even with diet and exercise.
Brazilian Butt Lift
Finally, the Brazilian Butt Lift is a procedure with a great name and even better results. Many plastic surgeries that increase volume in an area of the body do so with implants made of saline or silicone, or with injections containing impressively scientific compounds. The Brazilian Butt Lift is an exciting procedure that harnesses the power of your own body fat to fill out the shape and size of your buttocks. It also stands out from some other options, because it is legal in Florida and the U.S. and deemed safe when performed by a qualified surgeon like Dr. DeMercurio. The procedure begins with liposuction, helping you create an even better body shape overall. Body fat is removed from one area of the body where it is unwanted, that fat is cleaned and processed, and then it is injected into your backside to create a naturally fuller look. Your plastic surgeon can shape your bottom to your desired specifications and make you look great in your clothes and swimwear this summer.
Plastic surgery is a very personal choice. We’re proud to be in this business because we get to see firsthand how our work makes our patients look and feel their best. As we prepare for the new year, consider for yourself how you would like to look and feel throughout the year. Even better yet, who would you like to be one year from now as you are preparing for 2025?
In addition to these three, very popular procedures we offer other surgical and nonsurgical treatments, injectables, skincare, and more. Often patients know how they want to look and feel but aren’t sure how to achieve it. But don’t let that stop you! With our simple and thoughtful consultations, we can direct you toward the procedure(s) that will help you meet your 2024 goals most effectively.
