Why Savvy Patients Schedule Their Cosmetic Procedures Around the Holidays
Experienced cosmetic surgery patients know that one of the best times to schedule your procedures is around or immediately following the holiday season. Along with perfectly timing your procedure so that your body is ready for the upcoming summer, patients are often able to use holiday vacation time to have the procedure or improve their recovery period.
This is seen in the increased number of patients choosing these procedures during the winter months. Prospective patients are often encouraged to plan their surgical procedures and non-surgical treatments well in advance in order to coordinate their holiday schedules with the increased busyness of this period for cosmetic surgeons.
Laser Treatments and Chemical Peels Especially Recommended for Winter Months
As reported in a recent press release on The Wall Street Journal’s MarketWatch, popular procedures during this time include laser resurfacing, rhinoplasty, facelifts and brow procedures. This scheduling allows patients to have a natural and healthy recovery, and be fully ready to show off their new look when the summer months roll around.
Dr. Ali Sepehr, who was quoted in the press release, especially recommends laser skin resurfacing, since “of any other procedure, it makes most sense to save laser skin resurfacing for the winter time because it is more important to avoid the sun after laser skin resurfacing than, for example, rhinoplasty, facelift, eyelid surgery, and brow lift.”
There are also an increased number of minimally invasive procedures performed in order to get ready for big holiday gatherings. Popular procedures of these type include Botox injections, dermal fillers and light chemical peels or laser treatments. These non-surgical treatments provide dramatic results for patients wanting to look their best at big holiday parties, events and family gatherings. Getting a consultation with a trained cosmetic surgeon well in advance can help to guarantee that there is enough time for the best possible healing.
