Summer’s Hottest Cosmetic Surgeries
Breast augmentation, liposuction, and Botox top the list

The weather is warming up, the beaches are opening and the barbecues are smoking, and that traditionally means only one thing: summer is on the way. People are looking to get fit quickly through a variety of cosmetic surgery procedures that leave patients looking and feeling better than ever and with a renewed confidence in their appearance.
Liposuction and breast augmentation are the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures this time of year. This is not surprising since people dress more casually as they attend outdoor festivities, as well as going to beaches and pools and playing sports. Also, many companies institute a “summer dress” code (allowing for more casual dress at the office). With medical and surgical advances, my patients generally experience very short recovery times with minimal bruising and no down time. Breast augmentation results are extremely natural. There’s no doubt that the most feminine of a woman’s attributes are her breasts. Yet many women find themselves unsatisfied with the hand that nature dealt them. From reducing large breasts and enhancing small breasts to lifting sagging breasts, breast surgery is as diverse in procedures and outcomes as women are in appearance. As you know, exercise may firm your pectoral muscles, but it can’t do anything to the shape, size or position of breast tissue.
There is no question that during the warmer months of the year we see an incredible demand for cosmetic surgery procedures that improve what a person looks like in beach wear, bathing suits and other forms of athletic dress. Because summer gives us such an opportunity to showcase one’s appearance, liposuction and breast augmentation certainly can make the biggest difference in that regard and are very safe procedures to perform.
There is also a huge rise in Botox and Restylane injections (to erase wrinkles and plump lips), as people get ready for weddings, graduations and summer parties.
