Have you been thinking about cosmetic surgery for some time now? The holidays are the perfect season to schedule a procedure!
The holiday season always seems to be a busy time of the year in plastic surgery offices. Whether patients are seeking cosmetic surgery procedures such as breast augmentation, liposuction or facelifts, or those just looking to refresh with minimally invasive aesthetic procedures like injectables or laser treatments, everyone seems eager to be squeezed in for their end-of-year appointment!
BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM® top the list of the most popular procedures as we near the holidays. These injectables are commonly used to smooth out lines and wrinkles of the upper face, like “furrow lines” between the eyebrows, “crow’s feet” around the eyes and the horizontal lines of the forehead. Patients love the refreshed appearance of these procedures and the fact that makeup is less likely to settle in those fine lines and wrinkles! Talk about a treatment to get you holiday photo-ready?!
As for procedures that require a bit more down-time, the winter holidays are a perfect time for obvious reasons. Cooler temperatures mean more time spent inside, more time wearing cozy layers and more time for surgical recovery. Breast surgery, liposuction and abdominoplasty (tummy tucks) are favored during this time of year because patients can recover discretely over the holidays without taking additional time off work. Another perk? Final results will be appreciated well in advance of summer swimsuit season!
Another favorite is facial plastic surgery. For all the reasons described, the holidays enable men and women to have time off work built into the time of year, so they look refreshed and rejuvenated for the New Year!
