Summer Bodies are Made in the Winter

It might be hard to think about wearing a summer swimsuit while we are still wearing heavy jackets, but if you have goals to fit into last year’s swimsuit, maybe waiting until the weather warms up is a little too late. Now is the time to make a plan to reach your summer goal.

We all want to look good and feel comfortable with our bodies when the summer rolls around. Depending on your specific goals you most likely wait until the spring to even think about it. Many of us, are not just looking to shed a couple of pounds but have years of added weight and failed resolutions to undo. The winter is the time to make a plan to achieve your goal.

The world has changed and although there is still no magic pill that will turn back time there are new and safe medical options available to you. Options include tried and true diet and exercise but also include plastic surgery and medical weight loss. The experts at The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery (ACPS) can help you create that plan to get you to where you want to be. The surgeons and medical team at ACPS are experts in giving men and women their confidence back and will develop a plan in consultation with you on how best to achieve your goals.  

Plastic Surgery

Many patients rightfully turn to Plastic Surgery as their preferred option to look and feel great for the summer. Many cosmetic issues just can’t be fixed with diet and exercise. 

Common procedures include the Mommy Makeover, Tummy Tuck, Liposuction, Liposculpting, Breast Augmentation, and the Brazilian Butt Lift. These popular procedures can be achieved in a day, versus waiting to see results from dieting and exercising. However, there are recovery times to consider and most good surgeons are already booking out months in advance. If plastic surgery is included as part of your plan to achieve your summer goals now is the time to call the experts at ACPS.  

Not everyone is an ideal candidate for plastic surgery. As many as 10% of all patients are not candidates for surgery due to an unhealthy body fat level as measured by BMI (Body mass index). As your BMI increases so do your risks. However, as a national leader in plastic surgery, ACPS has developed a medical weight loss program to help these patients get to a safe weight; introducing The Skinny Shot. 

The Skinny Shot

The Hollywood secret has arrived in Houston; more specifically it has arrived at The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery. You probably have heard of it by now referred to as The Skinny Shot, The Skinny Jab, or The Hollywood Secret but it is a drug called Semaglutide. 

Semaglutide was originally developed to increase your body’s natural secretion of insulin for diabetics. Not only does it work, but it became clear that it also was an effective weight loss treatment. You can learn more about the science of this medication here.  

All patients in the weight loss program undergo a physical exam by one of our surgeons who will order & review lab work to ensure this program is right for you. 

Once you are cleared you will begin a 16-week regimen of Semaglutide administered once a week. Some of our patients do nothing else and are losing on average a pound per week. Others are pairing it with a new diet and exercise routine and are losing weight at a faster pace. What sets ACPS apart from other weight loss programs in the city is that it is done under the supervision of our surgeons ensuring a level of safety and satisfaction.
