Plastic surgery over the holidays

Breast augmentation surgery is very popular around the holidays. The Christmas holidays is the perfect time of year for women to have the time to recover without having to take any extra time off of work. Swelling will subside by the time your vacation comes around (if timed accordingly), and the final results will be appreciated well in advance of the summer swimsuit season!

Abdominoplasty and liposuction are extremely common body plastic surgery procedures before and after the holidays. Why? Well, downtime is the main reason! Its simple to hide compression garments during the post-op time with big and comfortable winter clothing. The timing is perfect for results to be seen just in time for summer.

Watch out for companies that advertise cosmetic surgery consistently on social media platforms and remember that appearances can be very deceiving. For information about safe plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures over the holidays, ensure that you do your homework and find a board-certified plastic surgeon and a member of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons like Australia’s top Specialist Plastic Surgeon Dr Magnusson.

Non-surgical holiday procedures

Dysport and Botox are at the top of the list of the most popular procedures as we near the holidays. Mostly used to even out wrinkles and lines around the eyes and the lines of the forehead — this results in an overall refreshed appearance. Botox and Dysport are the perfect treatment for getting you photo-ready for the holidays!

Another type of injectable is dermal fillers which are used to refresh the appearance with minimal downtime. The products fill in folds and adds volume to areas where there is a deficit because of weight loss or the ageing process.

The holidays are also a great time to have laser skin rejuvenation as we have less exposure the sun in the fall and winter. IPL is a common procedure that targets rosacea and brown spots and improves skin texture by stimulating collagen.

Besides facial rejuvenation, individuals also look to body contouring procedures over the holidays. CoolSculpting is an entirely noninvasive, no downtime procedure that is made to trim down hard to get rid of fat in areas like the flanks, thighs and abdomen. The results are permanent and are usually noticeable from three weeks to three months following treatment.
