Stay Bikini Ready All Year Long with These Procedures

One of the best things about living in Long Beach is the warm weather we enjoy year-round. Another is our access to the beautiful California beaches. When you combine these benefits, you may see the importance of being bikini ready all year long.

With the ability to wear lighter clothing throughout the year, most of us want to maintain an enviable shape. Summer dresses, sleeveless blouses, tank tops and halters expose the feminine figure visibly. The need for toned arms and shoulders, a taut tummy and sleek thighs and legs are important in every season.

However, for some women in Southern California, wearing revealing attire may cause some anxiety, especially after the effects of childbirth or aging. But there is help available, so every lady can achieve the bikini body they desire. Here are a few we offer at The Waltzman Institute.

Breast Surgery

Pregnancy, breastfeeding, aging, and genetics may have a negative effect on the size, shape or symmetry of the breasts.  We offer surgeries which restore youthful breasts to accentuate any warm-weather attire.

Breast Augmentation

One of our more popular breast surgeries in Long Beach is breast augmentation. This procedure enhances breast size, fixes asymmetry, and restores youthful volume to revive a woman’s femininity and self-confidence.

The surgery uses implants for a custom solution for your unique body type. Many of our patients tell us about their improved self-esteem and their new sense of pride in their body. They also tell us they enjoy a wider selection of wardrobe options.

Breast Lift

This surgery provides the elevation associated with youthful breasts. Patients may determine the need for a breast lift if their nipples are lower than their natural breast crease.

A breast lift is designed to correct the natural effects of pregnancy or aging by elevating the breasts’ shape and nipples to a more attractive position. Dr. Waltzman may combine a breast lift with breast augmentation to provide size, volume, and elevation.

Breast Reduction

Some women deal with the psychological and physical challenges of oversized breasts. They seek relief and comfort by bringing their breast size into better balance with their body type. Not only will this procedure provide aesthetic value but will add to the quality of life.

The benefits include more clothing options, improved physical appearance, and reduced physical discomfort.


The most popular body contouring procedure in Southern California is liposuction. This procedure eliminates fat bulges which diet and exercise ignore. Liposuction is designed to finish the job diet and exercise started. It removes stubborn fat cells to improve body contour.

Liposuction is the least invasive cosmetic surgery for body contouring. The recovery period is short because the required incisions are small and hidden. Patients must be close to their ideal weight to get the best results, which is an ideal bikini body. It’s important to remember; this is not a weight loss treatment but a body contouring procedure.


CoolSculpting is an advanced fat reduction treatment which uses fat-freezing technology to eliminate pesky pockets of fat from targeted areas of the body. Its state-of-the-art mechanism permits it to be non-invasive and painless, with no recovery time.

Treatment is so comfortable that patients relax by reading a book, stream movies or take a nap during the procedure. It is a great aesthetic alternative to liposuction for patients who wish to avoid surgery.

Tummy Tuck

We are constantly bombarded with images of taut tummies on fitness magazines and social media. Those who love beach attire desire six pack abs, but these can be impossible to attain when the underlying abdominal muscles experience damage.

A tummy tuck is a body contouring procedure also known as abdominoplasty. It removes excess fat and skin, diminishes stretch marks, and restores underlying tissue support. This surgery is great for those who seek body contouring help after weight fluctuations or pregnancies.

Other Procedures to Consider

When considering aesthetic improvements, body contouring is not the only resolution on a woman’s mind. Facial beauty and skin health are major concerns with the amount of sun exposure we endure in Southern California. Here are some procedures which are designed to enhance your facial beauty and skin health.


This surgery counters the effects of aging and environmental factors like sun and wind exposure. A facelift diminishes and eliminates unwanted folds, lines, and wrinkles to improve facial beauty. It adds underlying support to facial tissue below the skin surface.


Botox is the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world. It softens expression lines like brow furrows and crow’s feet. Results last up to four months, but periodic treatments can extend results as long or often as you wish.

Dermal Fillers

Fillers offer softened wrinkles and an increase in facial volume at the neck and mid-face. These injections can help remove the static wrinkles and lines which accompany the dry climate we live in.

ZO Skin Health

Dr. Waltzman is happy to provide his patients with the ultimate in skin care product lines. These products are great for general skin health or skin texture and pigmentation problems. We can arrange these treatments to complement other procedures we offer or to enhance skin appearance by themselves.


So, if you wish to learn more about how you can keep your body in bikini-ready status year-round, you should call board-certified plastic surgeon,  Dr. Waltzman,  for a consultation. He has extensive experience in providing the aesthetic look which goes well with our Southern California lifestyle.
