Plastic Surgery With Short Downtimes for Summer

SGK Plastic Surgery Blog

short recovery cosmetic surgerySummer has officially begun, and we are heading into the dog days of the warm summer months. However, that does not mean you have to put on hold your desire to undergo plastic surgery to correct a bothersome aesthetic concern. Instead, choose a cosmetic procedure that requires a short downtime, so you can be back on the beach or by the pool in (almost) no time.


Liposuction is an effective way to remove localized deposits of fat from under the skin. If you follow a healthy diet and exercise routine and are at or slightly above your ideal bodyweight but are frustrated with stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to your healthy lifestyle habits, you might be a good candidate for liposuction. The procedure can eliminate fat from almost any area of the body — from the knees to the neck. Thanks to advancements in liposuction techniques, this procedure now offers a short downtime for many patients: as few as three or four days, depending on your chosen liposuction technique and how many areas of the body you are treating.


When you don your favorite bathing suit, do you feel self-conscious about cellulite on the backs of your legs, hips, thighs or buttocks? If so, you might benefit from Cellulaze, the only minimally invasive laser procedure designed to improve the look of cellulite where it starts: under your skin. Although the downtime required with this procedure is minimal, the results continue to improve as your body regenerates collagen, a protein that is essential for healthy, elastic skin, which is integral in diminishing the appearance of pesky cellulite.

Nonsurgical Cosmetic Procedures

For individuals who are not yet prepared to undergo a cosmetic surgery procedure, SGK Plastic Surgery also offers a range of nonsurgical cosmetic procedures that require minimal or no downtime at all!

You can improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as restore volume to areas of the face that lack fullness, with injectable treatments including BOTOX muscle relaxant and dermal fillers such as Juvéderm.

You can tighten lax skin with nonsurgical Ultherapy treatment, an effective way to improve the tone of skin without the need for facial rejuvenation surgery.

Of course, we also offer skincare treatments, including laser skin resurfacing and microdermabrasion (among others), to even out the tone and texture of your skin.

To schedule a consultation with Dr. Kim to learn more about plastic surgery procedures with minimal downtime, please contact SGK Plastic Surgery by calling (281) 363-4546 today.
