6 Big & Little Ways to Look Your Best for the Holidays

The holiday season is just around the corner, and what better to kick off the festivities than treating yourself to a big (or little) makeover to look and feel your best just in time to get together with friends and family? If you’re considering plastic surgery treatments for the holidays, these six surgical and nonsurgical options might fit the bill.

1. Liposuction

Does it seem like no matter how hard you work out or how well you eat, you just can’t seem to get rid of those pesky love handles or belly pooch? If so, you’re not alone. This is a common problem for many men and women alike, because some areas of stubborn fat may not respond to diet and exercise alone.

If this is the case for you, liposuction could be the solution. During your liposuction procedure, your plastic surgeon can remove excess fatty deposits in trouble spots like your hips, waist, thighs or upper arms for a smoother, sleeker physique just in time for the holiday season.

2. Tummy Tuck

When loose or excess skin is your primary cosmetic concern, your plastic surgeon may recommend a tummy tuck to help remove and tighten abdominal skin and muscle tissue. Abdominoplasty is a common plastic surgery treatment for women who have had children and anyone who has lost a significant amount of weight and is now looking to improve the tightness and tone of their contours.

In many cases, liposuction and a tummy tuck make the perfect pair to address both excess fat and skin at the same time.

3. Breast Enhancement

Whether you want a little extra volume, a lift or both, breast enhancement can help you to achieve the younger, curvier look you’re going for. If you’re thinking about getting breast implants before the holidays, schedule a consultation with an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon soon so that you can enjoy your new look in time for the holidays.

4. BOTOX®

Maybe you’re after a quicker, less invasive cosmetic treatment for the holidays. If lines, wrinkles and creases are keeping you from looking your best, schedule a BOTOX® session to help you get that younger, smoother appearance without needing to take even a day off of work.

For most people, BOTOX results last anywhere from 3 to 6 months, but since each treatment session usually takes less than 20 minutes, maintaining regular appointments can be pretty convenient.

5. Injectable Fillers

Injectable fillers work slightly differently from BOTOX in that most of your options will target wrinkles in the mid- and lower-face areas, as well as lost facial volume in your cheeks. Many of the most popular injectable fillers contain a naturally-occurring sugar called hyaluronic acid, which helps to bind water the skin’s surface for a plumping and smoothing effect.

Results from hyaluronic acid fillers typically last between 6 and 18 months before you’ll need a touch-up.

6. Microneedling

Microneedling continues to gain popularity for its ability to help stimulate your skin’s collagen and elastin production. This cosmetic treatment can therefore diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles, decrease enlarged pores, improve acne scars and stretch marks and can lift and tighten your skin to achieve a rejuvenated and refreshed look and feel.

Another benefit of microneedling is that it can help your everyday skin care products to more readily penetrate the outer layer of your skin and thus do their jobs better.
