The new year is here, and that means the pressure for transforming into a new you is on. While diet and exercise must be a focus, the truth is that they can only go so far. Cosmetic treatments for New Year’s resolutions can help give you a jumpstart on your transformation while also boosting your confidence. Here are five cosmetic procedures to consider as you focus on self-improvement.
1. A Tummy Tuck
A tummy tuck is a procedure that transforms the abdomen. Excess skin is removed, fat cells are taken out and the muscles tightened. Clients can choose between full or mini tucks, and there is also the option to only remove skin without taking away excess fat or changing the muscles. Anyone with loose abdominal skin, belly fat or issues with their abdominal muscles should look into the option of abdominoplasty.
Why a Tuck Fits With Your Resolutions
If your goal is a physical transformation, your abdomen is front and center — literally. While it might not be your only problem area, for many, it is the one that matters most. Additionally, since a tummy tuck can address problems with the abdominal muscles, it makes it easier for you to exercise once you are fully healed. Depending on your needs, a tummy tuck could be the foundation for achieving the rest of your goals.
2. A Buttock Enhancement
Buttock enhancement can take on many forms, from removing excess skin, tissue and fat to injecting fat taken from another area of the body to even using implants for a larger, rounder appearance. This procedure can be done on its own or it might be part of a full-body makeover. The overarching goal is to improve the shape while giving the bottom a youthful appearance.

Hitting the gym and jumping into a squat challenge can only do so much. When your goal is a superior posterior, consider cosmetic treatments for your New Year’s resolutions. A BBL gives you the chance to claim a rounder, perkier bottom that leg day doesn’t deliver while also trimming down other areas of your body, thanks to the fat transfer.
3. Male Breast Reduction
Breast procedures aren’t just for women. Men can also benefit from them. Gynecomastia is a condition that causes men to grow excess breast tissue and, in many cases, puffy nipples. This can deal a powerful blow to a man’s self-esteem, especially when it is visible through clothes. Male breast reduction removes excess tissue and can reshape the nipples for a natural, masculine appearance.

Let’s face it — for men, working out generally means hitting the gym and at some point, being shirtless in public. You might want to get fit and lose weight, but if you are worried about how your chest looks, the courage you need might not come. Gynecomastia surgery will give you the chance to run on the treadmill without worries about bounce and change in the locker room unbothered.
4. Body Contouring
Body contouring can be accomplished through surgery, but non-surgical options may be best. CoolSculpting® and EMSCULPT®️ are just two choices available to you. These treatments destroy fat cells, which are then eliminated by the body. You choose the areas you want to target, changing your body contour to align with the look you want.

Everyone has a certain amount of body fat as it is critical to our health. The problem is that sometimes, that fat is placed in a way that hides the results of your hard work. If there is a stubborn layer of fat preventing you from showing off your six-pack, body contouring could remove it, perfecting your New Year’s transformation with cosmetic treatment.
5. Sweat Reduction
Excess sweating is an issue for many. For many years, the only solutions were prescription antiperspirants and injections. However, miraDry® has changed that. This treatment uses electromagnetic energy to target sweat glands with heat, destroying the glands. In most cases, a few sessions are needed for optimal results, but the procedure is quick and relatively affordable.
Why miraDry® Fits With Your Resolutions
While stopping sweating is unlikely to be a resolution you made, hyperhidrosis could be preventing you from being as active as you need to be to lose weight. Whether you are worried about dripping on the gym equipment or just being able to walk to work without changing once you get inside the building, miraDry® can make the changes you want to achieve in 2020 more comfortable.
