Summer Bodies Are Made in Winter – Your Guide to a Bikini Body

As the winter chill settles in, it’s the perfect time to start prepping for a summer radiant ahead. Dr. Ariel Ostad understands the importance of feeling confident in your skin all year round. We believe confidence should shine bright no matter the season. That’s why we are proud to offer body contouring services to help you achieve your goals. 

The cold season gives you plenty of time to reduce stubborn fat and gain the perfect physique before summer turns a corner. By undergoing body-sculpting procedures, like liposuction and skin tightening, you give your body time to work its magic so that you can look your best later on. Dr. Ostad can provide multiple procedures to ensure that you are confident in your skin, creating that ideal bikini body.

Why Start Your Efforts in Winter?

Getting your summer silhouette is a process that takes plenty of time. The winter time tends to be a quieter time for social events and outdoor activities which means you have time to get your treatments done. It also allows your body enough time to process the treatment so that you can see the long-term results, especially when using laser therapy.

Body-Contouring Procedures to Consider

There are plenty of non-invasive procedures out there that can help you obtain a perfectly sculpted and youthful summer body. Here is what Dr. Ostad recommends:

1. Tumescent Liposuction

When dieting and exercising can’t help with stubborn fat, liposuction can bring natural, targeted results. Among the different types of liposuction, tumescent liposuction is the best technique. It offers the same benefits as traditional liposuction only with a shorter recovery, less pain, a lower risk of bruising, and it is more effective and safer. 

With tumescent liposuction, Dr. Ostad will inject a solution in the targeted area that will fill out the fatty layers, causing them to become firmer, and numb the area so you are comfortable throughout the entire procedure. The unwanted fat will be removed using a microcannula, which offers more precision than a regular cannula. This procedure can be used on many areas of the body, including the arms, abdomen, waist, arms, thighs, legs, and double chin. 

2. BodyTite® 

If you want to reduce excess fat while improving the look of your skin, then BodyTite® can offer beautiful results. Using radiofrequency, this treatment dissolves the excess fat through a tiny excision. This will trigger your body’s healing response and collagen production, ultimately tightening your skin. 

When paired with liposuction, the procedure can provide the best results in terms of skin tightening and fat reduction. BodyTite® is minimally invasive and performed under local anesthesia, allowing you to get back into your day-to-day activities within a few days. Patients typically see improvement within a few weeks after the procedure.

3. AccuTite® 

AccuTite® has the same effect as BodyTite® in terms of fat reduction and skin tightening. The main difference is that this is a much smaller radiofrequency contraction device, offering precision heating on delicate areas of your face and body. 

The treatment is often used on hard-to-target areas like your cheeks, lower areas of your face, chin, and neck. The procedure can not only help reduce unwanted fat from the target areas, it can also be used to reduce wrinkles and other skin laxity issues.
