Ready for the beach

Summer time is here!

Well, not quite, but you know what I mean.  It’s almost here and so most of us are envisioning sitting on a beach with an umbrella drink, or maybe sitting around the pool.

Of course, a common concern this time of the year is “how good will I look in my bathing suit”?  And by the way, this goes for men and women.  Many women have lately undertaken extreme efforts at getting their pre-pregnancy bodies back.  Dieting, fitness, mindset uplifts, whatever it takes.  But starving yourself so you an look good poolside is a bad strategy because, at some point, you’re going to have to eat something.

Far better to exercise regularly and maintain a good diet.  That way, on the occasion that the brownie is calling you, you can eat it with no guilt because you’ve earned it.  But what about mothers that have had children and have been unable to get their bodies back?  Weight loss doesn’t always lead to that pre-pregnancy body as often times the skin can be stretched to the point where it won’t “snap back”.  For these situations, Mommy Makeovers, Tummy Tucks, Breast lifts/augmentations and other forms of Plastic Surgery are valid measures to take.  These types of cosmetic procedures are extremely popular these days and plastic surgery overall has become extremely safe, popular and almost routine, with about 10 million procedures taking place each year.

It’s important to do your due diligence when considering a Plastic Surgery Procedure.  Finding the best Plastic Surgeon is critical so if you’re looking for Plastic Surgery in Augusta, Ga, for example, you’ll want to make sure you do some very hard research to make sure you find one that is certified and highly recommended.  Real Self has some great tools for this kind of research, as does MakeoverGA.com.

Plasticsurgery.org site has a great section dedicated to the many men and women that have undergone cosmetic surgery – it’s an inspiring page.   If you need a little encouragement, some real life stories, some information straight from those that have done it, this is a great site to visit.  Of course, there are horror stories surrounding plastic surgery procedures that have gone wrong and this is a fact of life.  It happens, but the important point to remember is that the botched procedures always make the news whereas the successful procedures rarely, if ever, do.  Like anything else, bad news is sensational and so it gets a lot more air time than good news.  But if you look at the statistics, you’ll see a vast majority of the procedures performed are immensely successful.
