Plastic Surgery Trends During the Holiday Season

The holidays are the most wonderful time of the year to visit your plastic surgeon. It’s no secret that requests for plastic surgery spike during the holiday season since this is when patients want to look freshened-up for holiday parties. It’s also a time for school vacations, time to relax, family gatherings, photo sessions, and an opportunity to get freshened-up for those office parties.

New Year’s resolutions are often made where we promise to eat healthier, exercise more, and be our best selves. In preparation for this, the holidays are the best time of the year to undergo plastic surgery and many different non-surgical rejuvenation procedures.

Many patients take advantage of extended holiday breaks to book a cosmetic surgery appointment with Dr. Florence Mussat, a Board-Certified Plastic and Reconstructive surgeon in Downtown Chicago who has been in private practice for over 20 years.

The Trend Is All About Timing

You could be seeking a cosmetic procedure such as a breast lift, liposuction, or a facelift. Or you might be looking to refresh your looks with minimally invasive aesthetic procedures like instalift or medical skincare. But regardless of your plans, be prepared to join many other patients eager to be seen for their end-of-year appointment.

The holiday season is the perfect time to undergo that facelift surgery and get yourself ready for the summer swimsuit season. During the holidays, you typically get to take some time off work, which gives you enough time to heal and recover from your surgery. Allowing yourself a 2-3 week recovery period is essential for obtaining ideal and long-lasting results. You will need to avoid heavy workloads during this time, but you may get to spend more time hanging out with the family!

Companies often shut down over the holidays for a few days. Find out if your company does, as this may be the perfect opportunity to schedule a procedure. Not only does this give you some downtime, but it is also the ideal amount of time for recovery from a plastic surgery procedure. Of course, the colder winter weather will keep you indoors for much of the time, so you’ll be able to wear loose, comfy clothing over those compression garments while going through your recovery.

The Trend That Keeps on Giving

Your life is busy, and sometimes taking time for yourself must seem near impossible. However, the holidays tend to be a time when you can slow down and enjoy time for yourself and with our loved ones. Whether it’s to look your best or finally to do that one thing you’ve wanted to do just for you, the holidays tend to be the ideal time.
