Body Summer Ready

Dr. Berman’s Favorite Procedures for Getting Your Body Ready for Summer

The best procedure for getting your body ready for summer? That is a tough question for me to answer. It is really a toss up between a breast augmentation and Smartlipo. On the one hand, a breast augmentation is very transformative and of course, there is little you can do as a patient on your own in this area. If you want larger breasts, there is only one way that is completely predictable and that is to place breast implants under the muscle. It, of course, is done in an outpatient setting and you can return to work in 4-5 days. It does take about 3-4 months for them to settle into position, but in clothes, you will look great right away.

Smartlipo is also one of my very favorite procedures. Almost every man and woman wishes they had less fat in certain areas. I can almost always decrease the amount of fat in the treated area. I can never make you perfect but I can almost always improve you. There is very little risk (though it should be noted that everything has some risk) since it is being done under local with oral sedation. The results are more gradual, compared to a BA. With Smartlipo, you will continue to see improvements for up to six months. What can be very exciting for me is how many people, after getting Smartlipo, will then get stricter with their dieting and exercise, which further enhances their final results. Even more importantly, this sets up healthier habits which will positively impact the rest of their lives.
