Get Ready for the Holidays with Plastic Surgery

There are so many things to look forward to as the holiday season begins – parties, events and time with family and friends. At Umansky Plastic Surgery, the holidays can be the busiest time, as patients take advantage of time off work to indulge in a procedure they have been wanting, or seek minimally-invasive procedures to enhance their appearance for the festive season.

Putting Your Best Face Forward

If your holidays are spent with family and friends you don’t see much during the year, this might be the time to indulge in procedures that will enhance your appearance without keeping you down for the count. Popular options to help you get ready for the season include:

  • Botox
  • Soft tissue fillers (like Juvederm, Voluma and Restylane)
  • Laser skin resurfacing
  • Laser hair removal
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Chemical peels

These treatments can often be completed in our office in under an hour and involve little discomfort during or after the procedure. Many patients are able to return to work and regular activities as soon as the procedure is completed. Whether you are looking for a way to erase facial wrinkles or simply give the skin a refreshed look before you hit the party circuit, there is an appropriate cosmetic procedure for you.

Taking Advantage of Time Off

The holidays are also a time when you may be off work, giving you the perfect opportunity to heal from a more invasive plastic surgery procedure. In addition, many people have family members come to visit during this time, providing them with the help they might need during the recovery process. Plastic surgery procedures to consider include:

  • Breast enhancement (augmentation, lift, reduction)
  • Liposuction
  • Facelift
  • Tummy tuck

With the ability to take two or more weeks off work during this time, patients can have their procedure early in the break and return to work with little evidence they had anything “done” over the holidays. Many enjoy the ability to return to a regular schedule after the New Year with an improved appearance that others notice without realizing they went under the knife to get it.

If you are considering plastic surgery or a cosmetic procedure in anticipation of the holidays, one word of caution. Give yourself time to heal before heading out to a reunion or party, even if the procedure you choose is minimally invasive. Even injectable treatments can leave some residual bruising or swelling, which usually subsides within a few days. Allow for time between your procedure and your social engagement to ensure the treatment area has time to heal completely.
