With bathing suit season right around the corner, plastic surgeons across the country are finding more women are booking up appointments for body contouring
and breast augmentation
procedures. Dr. Michael Niccole, founder and medical director of CosmetiCare Plastic Surgery Center and MedSpa in Newport Beach, and one of the “Top Plastic Surgeons in America”, reports that his appointment books are full, with a high demand for breast implants, skin tightening procedures and body contouring procedures to help women lose a few inches around the hips and thighs.
Dr. Niccole reports, “Many of the patients requesting breast augmentation, breast lift or liposuction explain to me that they need to have surgery before summer weddings, beach parties and vacations begin. Unfortunately, if they don’t plan far enough in advance, they panic when they find it difficult to fit surgery into their schedule between work, family obligations and summer activities.”
