Winter can be a great time to undergo various cosmetic procedures, with ample recovery time before you can show off results in the summer.

With winter on its way, it is in our nature to want to bundle up and stay indoors rather than braving the cold weather for any reason. This is the exact reason why it is also the perfect time to have work done! Bulky coats and jumpers offer cover over any bandages and give you enough time to heal without too many people noticing. And if you opt to have these procedures done during the cold weather, it will mean that by the time summer rolls around, you will be ready to show off your fresh new look!

Tummy tuck

If endless sit-ups and crunches are not giving you the taut tummy you are striving for or you have a little too much flab or excess skin around your abdomen that won’t diminish with diet or exercise, you may want to consider an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). Popularly referred to as a tummy tuck, this procedure flattens your abdomen by removing extra fat and skin, and tightening muscles of the abdominal wall. Whilst not an alternative to a healthy weight-loss plan, abdominoplasty can help in tidying up an out of shape mid-section for both men and women and is subject to Medicare rebates.

Liposuction

Undergoing a cosmetic surgery procedure is a huge decision but fortunately there are more options than ever before to help you look and feel your best. Liposuction removes unwanted fat from specific areas of the body which are prone to storing pockets of fat. At Gold Coast Plastic Surgery we commonly use liposuction to improve the contours of the body, including areas such as the neck, upper arms, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees and calves. While liposuction should never be treated as an alternative to a healthy weight-loss plan or exercise regime, it can deliver some dramatic results. Liposuction is best used to contour problem areas creating a more sculpted body. It is not a weight loss procedure.

Breast augmentation

Bulky sweaters will help you cover up the bandages after breast augmentation.

Whether you are looking to rejuvenate your breasts after child bearing or are dissatisfied with their appearance and want surgery, Dr Doyle offers a number of implant types, and approaches to implant placement to suit you. Breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure designed to increase and enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breast. There are a large number of options with breast augmentation including implant choice and surgical techniques. Dr Doyle will discuss these with you depending on the result you are looking to achieve.

Breast lift

The breast lift is a procedure for women with breasts of any size. Breast lift is often combined with other procedures, for example; many women with large breasts opt to have a breast reduction at the same time. If you have small, sagging breasts that have lost volume over the years, a breast lift with implants will enhance the size and firmness of your breasts, lifting them to a higher position. Any breast augmentations or lift procedures can be hidden by sweaters while you remain cosy by the fireplace.

Facelift

Of course you have a skin regimen but sometimes your face needs an extra boost, especially if it is anti-aging that you are after. Winter is the perfect time to take care of those treatments. A facelift restores the contour of your face and neck to produce a more pleasing, youthful appearance. Depending on the person’s needs, this can be done alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead or brow lift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping. At Gold Coast Plastic Surgery, our facelift patients often tell us their family and friends say they look like they are refreshed, revived and have been on a great holiday!

Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty can straighten a nose, change the shape of all parts of the nose and improve breathing difficulties. This procedure can attract Medicare and Health Insurance rebates in some patients, particularly if the procedure is done to correct problems from an injury or there are breathing issues. During your consultation, Dr Doyle uses digital imagery to give you a personal preview of the difference your new nose could make to your appearance.
