With summer in full swing, we’re all in a hurry to get looking our best before swimsuit season ends. It can be tough to shed those extra pounds that people tend to pack on during the winter months, but following these three tips can help whip your body back into shape in time to hit the pool with confidence.
1. Get Regular Exercise
As difficult as it may be, the best way to get your body ready for the beach is to get regular exercise. You might be tempted to lay on the crunches to try and just tone up your midsection, but don’t fall for the hype: it’s nearly impossible to reduce specific fat deposits with targeted exercises. The best way to tone your tummy is to focus on cardio activities that burn lots of calories and allow your body to slim itself down naturally.
2. Lipo Your Love Handles
No matter how committed you are to your new workout routine, you may find that you can’t shake off those love handles. Liposuction can remove fat that doesn’t respond to diet or exercise, helping to streamline your figure. Although most commonly used through the abdominal area, liposuction can slim down virtually any problem spot on the body.
3. Consider a Tummy Tuck
If you’re plagued by excess skin around your tummy in addition to a spare tire or muffin top, liposuction won’t be able to help. Instead, a tummy tuck can tighten the contours of your midsection by removing excess skin and tissue, as well as restructuring the abdominal muscles underneath. A tummy tuck is one of the most popular options among men and women whose primary body concern is a tummy characterized by saggy skin.
You can also combine your tummy tuck with liposuction for the best of both worlds, plus a drain-free recovery.
