What makes this time of year so popular for plastic surgery? Many want to look their best for the seasonal events, while others want a fresh start for the upcoming year. Either way, for anyone who might be contemplating undergoing plastic surgery over the holidays, timing is just one thing to think about.
December holiday breaks are a perfect time for many patients to undergo surgery because their children are on break from school and the demands on their schedule are lessened. Making the most of traditional time off, and using this downtime to recover privately. The holidays are also a discreet time to take vacation from work without explaining that you need recovery time for your surgical procedure. Additionally, there is usually extra family and friends around to help with recovery. Also, it is easier to conceal swelling or bruising with winter sweaters and uncover your newly enhanced and healed body once spring weather returns.
Potential patients will want to identify what procedures they are interested in. The most popular procedures are Rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, as well as dermal fillers and Botox. Minimally invasive treatments like skin resurfacing with lasers and peels, and lip, chin and cheek enhancement with fillers and fat also top wish lists.
Since the demand for the services of plastic surgeons is high, patients who want to schedule their procedures for a specific week during the holidays often do so months in advance to ensure that they can have time off to recover.
It is important to note that cosmetic surgeries are real surgeries. Like any medical procedure, they do carry certain risks, and not everyone will be a suitable candidate for every treatment.
