Extra perimeter around holes

Is there a way to add extra perimeters around holes? I have some holes where I want to install a threaded insert (by heating it and melting it into the plastic). I want some extra plastic around the hole area. BTW, I use Fusion360 for modeling.

Not really . Depending on where your holes are you could make a separate process and have more shells but that may mess up the outside look.
I have use insert with only 2 shells and 50% infill without issues. Make a small test model, you can also remove the inserts so you won't be wasting any..
