Millions of people have made New Year’s Resolutions. Most of them have to do with improving appearances through healthier eating and fitness. This desire to create a better inside and out can help people have a better overall life.

When you feel good on the inside about the way you look on the outside, you carry those good feelings over to other parts of your life such as work, school, and relationships. Confidence is contagious!

As many people work towards improving themselves, some are also considering plastic surgery. The following are some of the ways you can use a surgical procedure to help you improve your outlook on life.


How Plastic Surgery Can Help You with Your New Year’s Resolutions. Blog by Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of New York.


There are some areas of your body that may not be as toned as you’d like such as the abdominal area. This area is notorious for being stubborn when it comes to losing fat and getting flat. The good news is that if diet and exercise can’t get you that flat tummy you’re trying for, you can seek liposuction (and even fat transfer) from Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of New York.

With this procedure, surgeons remove fat from the abdominal, thigh, or hip areas and place it in another area such as your breasts or buttocks. With this procedure you end up with a bonus – better curves!

You can choose to have the fat placed anywhere you please, including the face or back of the hands. Some people choose to have it deposited in their lips to plump them up, or in their cheeks to produce a more youthful look. The choice is yours, so talk to us and see which areas your fat could be used.

Tummy Tuck

If you lose a substantial amount of fat in the abdominal area, you may end up with a lot of excess skin such as in the case of the woman in this article. After losing an astonishing 175 pounds, she needed to have excess skin removed. This ended up cutting her weight down another 20 to 30 pounds and she was so excited to have a smooth, flat stomach.

The only way you’ll know if you need this is after you lose the weight through diet and exercise. If you’ve already lost the weight, a tummy tuck can help you achieve a flatter, smoother stomach.

Now that you have some additional ideas on how plastic surgery can have a hand in your New Year’s Resolutions, get out there and make them happen! You deserve it.
