Bikini Weather: Is Lipo the answer?

June 7th, 2019

Wayzata Beach

Bikini weather has finally arrived this year in Minneapolis and beach ready body questions soon follow. I have noticed an increase in the interest for liposuction and breast enlargement, as Midwesterners anticipate finally shedding bulky winter clothing for skimpy beachwear. The body-conscience scramble to lose those winter pounds, toning up muscle.┬áSometimes working out can only get you so far. When fullness on the hips and thighs just doesn’t seem to get better after hitting the gym, there are additional options. Liposuction can effectively remove localized fullness, but isn’t a weight-loss tool. The best results are achieved with patients that are within 10 pounds of their ideal weight.

Women who have had children and men who have lost over 75 pounds often have a belly issue. Stretched skin and muscle usually require a tummy tuck to smooth the abdomen. The scar is strategically placed so that it is covered by most swimsuits, but the surgery requires about a week of recovery before revealing new abs. Seasonally inspired, breast enlargement interest is actually on the rise. It remains the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure. More than 300,000 women elected to have breast augmentations last year in the US, with liposuction coming in a close second.

Breast Enlargement #1 Surgery for 2018

March 13th, 2019

Lipo Fat GraftingBreast Enlargement is #1 Surgery for 2018. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has released their annual cosmetic surgery stats compiled for 2018. Again, in the #1 spot is Breast Augmentation (enlargement). In fact, the Top Five are all breast procedures. Over 1.8 million cosmetic surgeries were done last year, in addition to almost 16 million minimally invasive procedures like Botox®.

Not surprising, Liposuction increased by 5% last year, with an intensified interest in fat grafting surgery, where liposuctioned fat cells are reintroduced to sculpt or plump another area in the body. I have noticed that our office is receiving more calls for consultations for this relatively new application designed for liposuction and liposculpture. I find that the popularity has increased by offering natural breast enlargement, natural facial rejuvenation and sculpting other parts of the body using the patients own fat. It is an exciting time to be a cosmetic plastic surgeon.
