Time to Consider Your Summer Body With These Popular Procedures

For those of us who yearn to put our toes in the sand, summer can’t get here soon enough. Wearing that favorite bikini may be on your mind, but are you ready to reveal your body poolside? Consider cosmetic procedures to get your body into summer shape by addressing any aesthetic concerns of your figure.

Body sculpting is a type of plastic surgery designed to reshape your physique by curve enhancement, tummy flattening, or fat reduction. And if you also struggle with skin laxity, skin tightening is necessary to get you looking great in the sun.

Triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali Sajjadian offers various procedures to get your body ready to show off. Some require surgery, while others are minimally invasive with little to no downtime. The options depend on your cosmetic concerns and desired goals.

Surgical Procedures

Dr. Sajjadian performs an array of body sculpting procedures to help you realize your cosmetic goals. In many cases, these surgeries lend themselves to artistic excellence. He has performed hundreds of operations in the Newport Beach/Orange County areas, delivering the desired outcome for an overall body appearance.  Here are the surgical options to choose from.

Breast Augmentation

Sometimes, breast volume diminishes with childbearing or age. Or, if your natural breasts are too small for your body type, a breast augmentation can deliver larger, shapelier.

Breast Lift

If your breasts sag, droop, or have excess skin, a breast lift can restore breast elevation and strengthen breast tissue. Results include youthful breast location with that sensual upward curve.


Have diet and exercise failed to give you your desired figure? It might be time to pursue another option. Liposuction permanently removes unwanted fat cells from trouble spots like the abdomen, thighs, and back. It is a perennially high-demand cosmetic surgery and pairs well with other treatments to ensure optimal results.

Tummy Tuck

When pregnancy or weight fluctuations wreak havoc on your abdomen, crunches and planks alone might not be enough to get you the flat belly you desire. A tummy tuck can eliminate excess skin and fat while reinforcing the abdominal wall. For less severe cases, a mini tummy tuck might be the best option for a taut, sleek midsection.

Brazilian Butt Lift

If your backside doesn’t have the shape or elevation to fit perfectly in that bikini bottom, a Brazilian butt lift can help. Enjoying a curvaceous derriere like Beyoncé or Jennifer Lopez is now possible with this popular plastic surgery. Also known as fat transfer, it adds shape to your bottom with natural fat tissue from your body.

Thigh Lift

This advanced cosmetic surgery tightens flabby, loose skin on the outer and inner thigh. A thigh lift reshapes the thigh area to deliver a defined, shapely result. Dr. Sajjadian customizes the operation to your specific cosmetic concerns and aesthetic goals.

Arm Lift

After significant weight loss or hormonal changes, the upper arms may develop loose, flabby skin. An arm lift can restore youthful arm contours, creating an appealing look when you wear bathing suits, spaghetti straps, or sleeveless blouses.

Non-surgical MedSpa Treatments

Dr. Sajjadian also offers non-surgical MedSpa treatments to get your body ready for the summer. These include procedures to tighten skin and reduce cellulite. They can also restore facial beauty by resolving wrinkles, folds, and lines.


Restore facial beauty to go with that slender figure with the neuromodulator BOTOX. Working by temporarily inhibiting contractions in facial expression muscles, this popular cosmetic injectable resolves dynamic wrinkles and lines on the forehead, brow, and around the eyes without downtime or recovery.

Dermal Fillers

Show the world you age gracefully with the help of our wide range of dermal fillers to help you look your best. These non-surgical procedures refresh and rejuvenate one’s facial appearance with natural results by filling voids and restoring facial volume.

Neck Contouring

A neck lift is designed to restore a sleek, elegant neckline to perfectly frame your facial beauty. It resolves neckbands, turkey waddle, and loose skin. It can also eliminate submental fat to address a double chin.

Profound RF

Cellulite, fine lines, and wrinkles are among the most common cosmetic concerns for women trying to show off their bodies. Profound RF has been clinically proven to create younger, smoother skin and makes an excellent cellulite reduction therapy.

InMode Laser

Trying to avoid incisions and scarring when body contouring? InMode Laser offers a suite of non-surgical treatments that deliver noticeable results. These non-invasive body treatments reduce dimpled skin, improve cellulite appearance, and help slow down elasticity loss on the abdomen, hips, thighs, and love handles.

Hair Removal

If unwanted hair is a problem, our advanced hair removal treatment can get to the root – quite literally. Our hair removal technology makes for a convenient and quick hair removal therapy, with diode laser beams targeting unwanted hair follicles to destroy them for good.

Vein Therapy

Aging, pregnancy, and genetics may cause unwanted pigmentation and veins on the legs, feet, and face. Though spider and varicose veins cause cosmetic troubles, they can also be the source of circulatory issues and discomfort. Dr. Sajjadian is one of the few plastic surgeons in Orange County and Newport Beach who employs Photoderm facial and leg vein therapy treatment.

What Causes Stubborn Fat and What Can You Do About It

Despite targeted workouts, calorie counting, and slimming Spanx, many people still battle stubborn bulges of unwanted fat. The diet and weight loss industries are a lucrative market. Yet, men and women are often disappointed with the results of various plans and treatments. That’s because body fat types and factors for gaining have a lot to do with the struggle to burn it off.

An active lifestyle is ideal for staying in shape, but it won’t always help remove pockets of fat in problem areas. Let’s take a look at the reasons we develop stubborn pockets of fat and consider treatment options that really make a difference.

Where Does Fat Accumulate, and Why?

Persistent fat deposits appear on areas of the body like tummy, thighs, and waist. You might see bulges of soft, subcutaneous fat under the skin and over the muscle. Furthermore, visceral fat may develop, surrounding internal organs in the abdomen. Intraabdominal fat causes a firm, protruding potbelly, and it happens to be the unhealthiest type to struggle with.

Unwanted body fat does more than just cause self-consciousness. Being overweight makes regular exercise more challenging. Tight clothes are uncomfortable, and it’s difficult to see progress as you build muscle and strength. Accumulating fat in the abdomen also contributes to health conditions. If you’re trying to figure out your cause and solution for body fat, consider these factors:

Hormone Imbalances

Being overweight can alter hormone levels in the body. An increase in estrogen levels can trigger sticky, stubborn adipose fat storage in the usual places: buttocks, thighs, and abdomen.

Irregular Diet

Eating late at night, yo-yo dieting, and other dietary habits that fluctuate have a detrimental effect. Eating frequently without a long enough break between meals means your body doesn’t have enough time to use energy and nutrients while burning off calories.

Your Microbiome

More than ever, data suggests the gut’s bacterial composition (microbiome) differs dramatically between obese and healthy weight people. Consuming a Western-style diet, high in hydrogenated and processed fat, refined carbohydrates, and sugar may promote intestinal bacteria that are linked to obesity.

Portion Size

Consuming large meals leads to excess body fat for most people.

Sedentary Lifestyle

Many people spend long hours in the same position, working at a desk or driving. A lack of regular movement and light cardio in your day can lead to weight gain and other health problems.

Can You Get Rid of Fat Bulges?

Want to reshape your figure, and slim your contours? You have options! Aside from increasing physical activity and cutting back on excessive calories, there’s an efficient cosmetic surgery to help reduce subcutaneous fat.

Liposuction is probably the best-known standard treatment for permanent fat removal. It does qualify as surgery, yet it uses only tiny, well-hidden incisions to accomplish fat cell removal. Dr. Sajjadian, our triple board-certified plastic surgeon, performs liposuction at our Newport Beach surgery center. It’s an outpatient procedure, meaning patients can go home when they feel up to it the same day.

The length of procedures varies depending on the areas covered and how much fat a person has removed. Dr. Sajjadian typically uses a general anesthetic to keep people comfortable throughout the process. Through incisions, Dr. Sajjadian inserts a small hollow cannula and introduces fluid to help liquefy fat for removal. The cannula sucks it out of the body to sculpt the desired shape.

Tumescent, Power-assisted, and Ultrasonic liposuction are the leading-edge techniques used in our clinic, each having benefits to improve results for a given area. You can often see your results soon after surgery. Swelling is expected, however, so count on several weeks before you see your final outcome.
