6 Procedures for Bikini Season

As the weather gets warmer and summer approaches, many of us are excited to hit the beach, lounge poolside, and soak up the sun. But for some, the thought of baring it all in a bikini can be daunting. If you’re feeling self-conscious about your body or are struggling to achieve that desired beach-ready look, fear not! Clinique Dallas offers a range of noninvasive, safe, and effective procedures, including body contouring and skin rejuvenation treatments that’ll help you look and feel your best, just in time for bikini season.

Bikini Bod Goals: Six Procedures to Get You There!

Below are six of our most popular bikini season procedures. If you’re ready to book your appointment, you can schedule a virtual consultation on our website.

Liposuction for Bikini Bodies

We all want to rock that itsy bitsy bikini, but sometimes stubborn fat can prevent us from feeling our best. Whether it’s love handles, a muffin top, or excess thigh fat, it can be frustrating to try and tone these areas with exercise and diet alone for summer body prep. 

Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure that can help you achieve a slimmer, more contoured figure. This minimally invasive procedure uses a small tube called a cannula, which is inserted into the fat layer under your skin. A vacuum is then used to remove that stubborn fat and tighten loose, flabby skin. 

This procedure is done under general anesthesia and can be performed in one to two hours. Plus, recovery time is typically minimal, so you can be back to your beach activities in no time!

Tummy Tuck for Bikini Bodies

6 Procedures for Bikini SeasonFor some women, the desire to have a flat stomach is not just about looking good in a bathing suit. It can also be about health and well-being. Also known as abdominoplasty, the tummy tuck procedure removes excess fat and sagging skin from your middle and tightens abdominal muscles, which may have become stretched out from pregnancy, weight gain, or other reasons.

This cosmetic surgery takes about four to five hours, and you can return to normal activities in about two to four weeks. This means you can bask in the sun, enjoy beachcombing, or swim in the ocean as soon as you feel ready. But remember not to do anything strenuous like paddleboarding or scuba diving that may cause bruising or trauma to your abdomen.

Brachioplasty for Bikini Bodies

brachioplasty vs liposuctionFor those who want to ring in the summertime with beautifully toned arms, brachioplasty may be the wave to catch. Also known as arm lift, this cosmetic surgery involves removing fat, skin, and/or muscle from your arms, so you can rock sleeveless tops and sundresses with confidence. 

During the procedure, your surgeon will remove excess skin and fat from your upper arms. They will then tighten your arm muscles with stitches, which will help to create a leaner look. The recovery process for this procedure can take anywhere from two to three weeks, depending on how quickly you heal. 

In the days immediately following surgery, you may experience some swelling and numbness around the incision site. But this will generally subside within a few days, and you’ll notice a significant improvement in the appearance of your upper arms. 

Breast Augmentation for Bikini Bodies

6 Procedures for Bikini SeasonIf you want to rock your favorite bikinis, crop tops, and bandeaus but are worried about not having enough cleavage, breast augmentation may be ideal to achieve your ideal look. During this procedure, the doctor will make an incision under each breast, remove fat from your body if desired, and place the implant behind your pectoral muscle through a small incision. This will simultaneously increase the size of your breasts while also giving them a more rounded shape and fuller appearance.

The procedure typically takes one to two hours and is often performed on an outpatient basis. Just like other surgical procedures, breast augmentation has risks, including infection, bleeding, and pain. But your doctor will provide you with instructions for postoperative care, which typically involves wearing a surgical bra, taking painkillers, and getting plenty of rest. You should also avoid strenuous physical activity for about four to six weeks — but that doesn’t mean you can’t hit the beach to watch those waves and get a sun-kissed glow. 

Laser Hair Removal for Bikini Bodies

Who doesn’t love catching some sun, sand, and waves during bikini season? But let’s face it — unwanted hair in your bikini area can be a major buzzkill when you’re trying to rock your favorite swimsuit. 

Luckily, ClearScan YAG Laser Hair Removal is here to save the day and help you achieve smooth and silky skin that’ll have you feeling like a beach goddess. This state-of-the-art technology uses infrared light to target the pigment in your hair follicles. It can be used to reduce unwanted hair, eliminate port wine stains, hemangiomas, warts, and other vascular lesions, improve leg vein appearance, and prevent spider veins.

6 Procedures for Bikini SeasonBut wait, it gets even better! Forever Bare BBL, another amazing laser hair removal treatment, can be used to remove hair from your entire body, including those pesky hairs that pop up in unwanted places like underarms and bikini areas.

During the procedure, a special tool is used to emit bursts of light energy that penetrate the skin and target the hair follicles. Because the treatment involves multiple lower fluence pulses at a high repetition rate, it is able to effectively target and remove hair without damaging the surrounding skin. 

And since the treatment is so gentle and virtually painless, it is ideal for those who have sensitive skin or are prone to pain and discomfort during traditional hair removal methods like waxing or threading.

It’s important to note that since every individual has different hair growth rates and skin types, the number of sessions needed to achieve desired results will vary. In general, most patients require six to 10 sessions for optimal results, but many patients report that the incredible results are more than worth the time and money. 

Skin Rejuvenation

If you’re worried about wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots getting in the way of your beachy glow, consider getting a Forever Young BBL treatment. This revolutionary technology uses broadband light to target and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, even out your skin tone, and leave you with a radiant, youthful glow. It’s almost like hitting the reset button on your skin. And the best part? It’s non-invasive and requires no downtime, so you can hit the beach right after your treatment!

Tips for Maintaining Post-Surgical Scars During Summer

Summer heat can be hard on your skin, but it can be especially damaging for post-surgical scars. Follow these tips for caring for your scars during the summer months:

  • Avoid beach activities between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., when the sun’s rays are strongest. 
  • Apply sunscreen with a high SPF (50 or above) to the scar, even if you plan on lounging by the pool. And don’t forget to reapply every two hours.
  • Before heading out, slip into some breezy UV-blocking clothes to reduce friction and sweating that may cause scar inflammation. You can also throw on a chic broad-brimmed hat and trendy sunglasses to shield yourself from the sun’s scorching rays.
  • Since a hot and humid environment can irritate the post-surgical scar, try skipping hot showers, saunas, steam rooms, and spas until your scar is fully healed. 
  • When you’re ready to take a dip in the water, avoid saltwater or chlorine. These compounds can irritate wounds, which could lead to infection and delay scar recovery. 
  • Eat a healthy and balanced diet rich in vitamins and nutrients that speed up skin healing, such as vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, and omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Follow your doctor’s instructions regarding scar care and any prescribed treatments, such as scar massage, silicone sheets, or topical ointments. Stick to the recommended schedule and frequency of use to achieve the best results.
