People should feel good about themselves year-round, but it’s true that some seasons create a more urgent desire to have a trim, healthy physique or figure. Summer is the time when many patients feel the most self-conscious about their bodies. Between trips to the beach and pool, wedding season, and summer parties, I can understand why certain people feel the pressure to look their best during the summer months. So, since the summer season is just about here, I wanted to highlight a few of the most in-demand cosmetic procedures (surgical and nonsurgical) that I offer to help prospective patients get their bodies right for summer.

A Few Hot Cosmetic Procedures to Consider This SummerMale Breast Reduction

Anxiety over your beach body is not exclusive to women. In fact, millions of men in the US suffer from gynecomastia, a condition that leads to enlarged male breasts. For men who feel uneasy taking their shirts off in public due to gynecomastia, I recommend male breast reduction surgery. Male breast reduction involves removing excess glandular breast tissue (as well as some fat) to flatten the chest and create a more masculine appearance. In my experience, most guys are surprised by how simple and affordable this procedure is.


For anyone who can’t seem to shake those pesky extra few pounds they put on during the winter months, liposuction can be just what you’re looking for. Liposuction is consistently the most popular body contouring procedure year in and year out, due to its versatility and effectiveness for removing patches of stubborn fat that can’t be treated with diet and exercise alone. Although it can be applied all over the body, some of the more common areas to treat with liposuction include the hips, thighs, flanks (love handles), upper arms, abdomen, double chin, and more.

Nonsurgical Fat Reduction

The summer can also be a great time to explore nonsurgical fat reduction treatments. Nonsurgical fat reduction with SculpSure® can provide a nice alternative to liposuction for patients who seek to remove small areas of unwanted fat from the body. SculpSure® treatments are easy, quick (typically just 25 minutes), and require no downtime for recovery. Check out details on our ongoing SculpSure® special promotion here. Additionally, Kybella® nonsurgical fat reduction may be ideal for anyone concerned about the appearance of a double chin. Kybella® is FDA-approved to safely treat the submental fat below the neck that causes a double chin.
