How to Feel and Look Your Best Self For Summer

Summertime is finally here, and with summer comes beach days, no-makeup days, and special occasions. This is the time when you wake up and decide to change something about yourself: some pesky cellulite, squinty wrinkles, thinning hair, yellowing teeth, or another attribute that does not make you happy. Luckily for potential patients, there are more available treatments than ever, all of which are rising in popularity with each year.

The amount of surgical and nonsurgical procedures in 2016 saw a 10.5 percent increase since the 12.8 million the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) reported in 2015. Of the surgical procedures, the two with the highest increase were fat transfers—to the breast and to the face—seeing a 41 percent and 17 percent rise, respectively. Also popular was the butt lift, up 21 percent, which demonstrates that more patients are going for easier procedures than ever before.

If you’re looking to add a little extra “oomph” to your look this summer, check out the advice from some local experts in the following areas:
