It’s Always Beach Season in SD: Procedures to Maintain a Bikini Body Year-Round

If you’ve been checking yourself out in the mirror and thinking you could use a body tune-up–you’re not alone! As they anticipate the coming summer season, men and women are increasingly looking to sculpt their figure into the perfect beach body.

It makes sense – wintertime and spring are ideal times to tune up your body. You can spend time away from the office and return looking better than ever without anyone asking questions. They will just think you just got a much-needed vacation!

Of course, there’s no need to wait to start working on your figure. We’ve gathered the hottest plastic surgery procedures to help you maintain a bikini body year-round – maybe one of them will be the right treatment for you.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is one of the most popular body contouring procedures in the world – and for a good reason. We live at a time when washboard abs and a narrow waist are the ultimate signifiers of health, but they’re not exactly the most attainable goals. Loose skin, stubborn pockets of fat, and abdominal muscles loosened by pregnancy can make it all but impossible to attain a flat a stomach.

With a tummy tuck, patients can finally achieve what years of dieting and workouts couldn’t give them. No more conservative swimsuits or feeling self-conscious while swimming. A tummy tuck will excise that loose skin, sculpt the abdominal fat, and tighten loosened muscles. And it can do it using a simple incision above the pubic bone – so any scarring can be hidden by underwear and bikini bottoms.


Liposuction is one of the most versatile plastic surgery procedures in the world; with the ability to treat dozens of areas on the body, liposuction can help people slim almost any area suffering from stubborn pockets of fat. The procedure works by using a cannula, a hollow tube attached to a suction device, to extract fatty tissue from the subcutaneous layer under the skin.

Of course, there are many different types of liposuction. Some liposuction devices use ultrasound to break down fat more efficiently. Some skilled surgeons are able to perform variations like Hi-Def liposculpture, a precise liposuction technique that focuses on emphasizing the abdominal muscles. Hi-Def liposculpture will enhance the look of the midline, the outer border of the 6-pack, and the other outlines created by the abdominal muscles. It’s true that liposuction is typically performed for relatively healthy patients who want to refine their figure, but hi-def liposuction is more commonly done for bodybuilders and toned patients who desire definition.

Brazilian Butt Lift

Although it was popularized in beach-crazy Brazil, the Brazilian butt lift has been used by millions of patients all over the world to help them achieve a rounder, fuller backside. It’s an incredible procedure that uses “autologous fat,” another term for the patient’s own fat.

But why do surgeons use the patient’s fat? For one thing, there’s a much lower risk that the patient’s body will reject their fat. For another, this means that the patient will be able to slim down an area with excess fat. That means that the patient can kill two birds with one stone; they can slim down areas such as the flanks and thighs while volumizing the buttocks.

Breast Augmentation

Breasts play an important role in creating balance for a woman’s figure. But due to factors like pregnancy, aging, or simply genetics, the breasts may appear too small or asymmetrical. Fortunately, breast augmentation allows you to achieve ideal curves that bring balance to your shape. Breast augmentation uses implants – typically silicone gel or saline – to provide both volume and shape to the breasts.

This highly versatile procedure can be customized to your ideal aesthetic. Whether you’re looking to fill out your favorite bikini, or you simply want to restore the changes caused by pregnancy or aging, breast augmentation offers the perfect solution.

Any Time of the Year is a Great Time to Get Your Bikini Body On

The term “bikini body” definitely brings to mind summertime and playtime at the beach – but there’s no reason it should be seasonal. So, what are you waiting for? The perfect bikini body is waiting for you. Start your journey by scheduling a consultation with double board-certified surgeon Dr. Sayed.



The Problems that Can be Solved Using Revision Breast Augmentation

Cosmetic procedures have become increasingly popular over the years due to its increased safety and efficiency for providing exceptional results. It is also because more and more people are becoming concerned about the way they look.

While most people are happy with the results of these cosmetic procedures, there are some cases where the results can be less than satisfactory. Some procedures may even give rise to side effects and complications.

The best way to correct these issues is by undergoing a revision procedure. One of the most common correction procedures is revision breast augmentation. This procedure is conducted to correct issues that arise following a breast implant procedure. There are various complications that can occur after the implants have been inserted. The easiest way to correct them is through revision breast augmentation.

Breast Implant Surgery

This is a cosmetic procedure which involves inserting silicone gel or saline implants into the breasts to improve their shape and size. This procedure is also known as breast augmentation. It is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world, with thousands of women undergoing it every year.

A breast augmentation can help women achieve a better, more proportionate figure. It also makes them appear more youthful and attractive. The patient can choose what implant they would prefer and its size. During the procedure, the skin of the breast can be tightened and the nipple can be repositioned as well.

Complications From Breast Implants

Following breast augmentation, there have been occasions where women have expressed unhappiness with their results. Either the implant size is too big or too small, or there are some complications that need medical attention. Whatever problems may arise, they can be easily treated through revision breast augmentation surgery.

Here are some common issues that can be resolved through this procedure:

Poor Positioning of the Implants: Although this complication is not dangerous, it can leave you feeling dissatisfied and self-conscious. When implants are poorly placed, they can affect the proportion of your breasts. Your chest will begin to look unnatural and your breasts may start to sag or droop.

Implant Rupture: This is quite hazardous as it can cause soreness, pain, swelling, as well as changes in feel, size, appearance, and shape of your breasts. It can be dangerous to have silicone gel floating around inside your body. There are various reasons that can cause implants to rupture, such as poor quality, trauma, etc.

Double-Bubble Deformities: A “double bubble” is formed when the natural tissue in your breasts begin to sag while the implants remain in their original position. Significant weight loss, pregnancy, or gravity are often responsible for this complication.

Capsular Contracture: After you undergo breast augmentation, a layer of fibrous tissue forms around the implants. This is known as a capsule and it is large enough to allow the implants to move. Over time, this capsule may become thicker and constrict the implant’s movement. It also causes abnormal rounding, raising of the breasts, and hardening.

Change in Implant Size: This is the most common reason for revision breast augmentation. Some women may change their mind and want smaller or larger implants. A revision procedure can help them achieve this.
