What do the cold-weather holidays mean to you? For many people, December and January are an excellent time of year to catch up and reconnect with family and friends. For others, it’s a chance for reflection and fresh starts. Paired with the calmer, cooler air and more time off work, these personal motivations and self-improvement ideas also make the holidays the perfect season for various aesthetic procedures, including:
The holidays give you more extended downtime than at other times of the year. This is beneficial during recovery time for common anti-aging surgeries, such as:
Eye Lift. If your upper eyelids sag and start to get in the way of your vision, an eyelift or eyelid surgery could help. It won’t eliminate crow’s feet or dark undereye circles. But it will remove excess skin and reduce bagginess.
Facelift. This surgical procedure can give a younger look by reducing wrinkles and smoothening folds. It primarily aims to tighten loosening or sagging facial tissues due to age.
Neck Lift. Some people aren’t ready for a full facelift, especially if their upper face is still pleasing. But for those who are already seeing excessive wrinkling of their neck, a neck lift may be an excellent option. This procedure can treat jowls and loose neck skin to restore your youthful contours.
Unlike skin-baring summer outfits, cold-weather clothes also make it easier to hide temporary swelling and post-operation bandages from some of the common body contouring and fat removal surgeries like:
Liposuction. This cosmetic surgical procedure breaks up and removes unwanted fat cells from the body to improve appearance. Cosmetic surgeons usually use liposuction on the neck, chin, abdomen, buttocks, thighs, backs of arms, calves, and the back.
Breast Augmentation. This surgical procedure uses breast implants or fat-graft mammoplasty to alter the breasts’ size and shape. It’s designed to enlarge naturally small breasts, restore symmetry, or restore the size and shape changed by weight loss, pregnancy, or surgery.
Breast Reduction Surgery. For patients who have overly large chests, breast reduction surgery may be an option. The procedure can help reduce neck, shoulder, or back pain caused by such a condition. It also helps make exercising and other physical activities less difficult to perform.
Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Procedures
People are generally more inclined to spend time indoors during the cold-weather months of the year. This makes it a lot easier to recover in the warm comforts of our home. You also get to avoid exposure to direct sunlight and even be ready to show off your new look by spring or summer. Some of the less invasive procedures you can get this season are Botox, dermal fillers, and laser procedures, including:
