It’s warming up here in Atlanta which means the summer season is nearly upon us. With the summer comes lots of time spent outdoors enjoying the sunshine and trips to the beach and pool. With this in mind, it’s no wonder that many people strive to look their best during this time of year. If you’re concerned about some aspect of your appearance with summer quickly approaching, cosmetic surgery can help. Keep reading for a helpful guide of in-demand cosmetic procedures (surgical and nonsurgical) for this summer season.


Liposuction is perhaps the most consistently in-demand cosmetic surgery procedure this time of year. Everyone wants to be able to show off their best beach bodies and lipo can do just that by helping patients shed stubborn, unwanted fat from areas all over the body. Summertime liposuction is especially common in the abdomen, flanks (love handles), back, upper arms, and thighs.

Cosmetic Breast Surgery

Undergoing cosmetic surgery in the summer can provide unique advantages for patients. For example, breast augmentation surgery is commonly performed during the summer months. Doing so can help patients take advantage of time away from work and school for post-surgery recovery and help patients maintain discretion when that is their preference. This is why male breast reduction surgery for gynecomastia is also popular during the summer.

Nonsurgical Fat Reduction

Nonsurgical cosmetic treatments can also be incredibly helpful during the summer. Nonsurgical fat reduction with SculpSure® can provide a great alternative to liposuction for patients who wish to remove small pockets of fat from the body without the need for surgery. The treatments are simple, quick (typically just 25 minutes), and require no downtime for recovery.

There is never a bad time to want to look and feel your best, but after many years of performing cosmetic procedures, it’s no wonder why things always seem to heat up here at the office when summertime rolls around.
