Summer brings with it ideas of suntanned bodies relaxing on sandy beaches, volleyball and beach parties. And, as many people know it is the time to show your body off in short shorts and tiny tee-shirts. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Many people however, dread summer because they are not happy with their body shape and weight and do not want to go out in public wearing skimpy clothes. A few years ago the solution to getting the perfect summer bod was to spend a few weeks at the gym and a day at the tanning salon to get that golden brown look on your toned body. Today, trim, tanned and toned is no longer enough and people are placing higher expectations on their body that it is impossible to naturally fulfil.
Women want D or E sized breasts, perfectly curved derrieres with no hint of fat and slim thighs and arms. A washboard stomach is of course a must have along with a beautiful face and perfect nose. Since a double D is not something that can be achieved in gym and no amount of dieting can give you that perfect nose, people today are turning to cosmetic surgery for their summer look.
As for men, the muscular look is in, and it is possible that many men will also turn to plastic surgery to get their bodies in shape.
