Summer Cosmetic Surgery Must-Dos

Swim suits and strapless dresses… if there’s one season when you want to look your best, it’s summer. Cosmetic surgery to the rescue. From surgical procedures to minimally-invasive pick-me-ups, we’ve got something for everyone this summer. Give us a call today to schedule your summer procedures. Which one will you choose? Check out some of our summertime favorites below.


Getting bikini-ready isn’t an easy task. As the body ages, stubborn fat (fat that is very resistant to diet and exercise) becomes more common. Daily trips to the gym might seem like the solution, but all too often these exercise routines fail and the stubborn fat remains. What’s the solution? Liposuction. This surgery uses suction to remove fat cells from under the skin. This allows for precise shaping and body sculpting. You can have the abs (or thighs, or arms, etc.) of your dreams.

Recovery from liposuction depends on your body and the amount of fat removed, but in general, 80% of the swelling will be gone in about six weeks (and you can head back to work much sooner, usually within 3-7 days). If you want to be bikini-ready this summer, now’s the time to prepare.


Surgery isn’t the only way to boost your appearance this summer. Injectable treatments are a great option for those of you who want a quick fix. Injectable treatments take about 15 minutes from start to finish, with no downtime. Come in, get treated and head right back to life.

  • Botox: Botox is consistently one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. Last year, more than 6 million treatments were performed. Botox disrupts wrinkle-causing contractions in the face, allowing the wrinkles to fade away. This treatment is great for wrinkles around the eyes, between the brows and on the forehead. You’ll need treatment every 3-4 months to maintain your results.
  • Juvederm: Plump up your lips and kiss your wrinkles goodbye with Juvederm. This dermal filler creates smooth and natural-looking results as it fills in wrinkles and restores lost facial volume. It’s made of hyaluronic acid, a highly biocompatible substance naturally found in your body. In Dr. Lewis’ skilled hands, the results can look very natural and beautiful. Treatments usually last 6-8 months.
  • Juvederm Voluma: Juvederm Voluma is a special type of hyaluronic acid filler that is injected deep into the skin. It adds volume to flattened cheeks, restoring a more youthful, rejuvenated look. Best of all, these injections last up to two years for a lasting look you’ll love.

Summer will be here before you know it. Call our offices at 804-267-6009 to schedule your appointment today. Winter, spring, summer or fall, we want you to look amazing every day.
