With COVID still hanging around the holidays may look a little different this year, again. But that doesn’t mean you can’t look and feel your best!
Regardless of whether you’ll be visiting family in person or through a Facetime or Zoom call, the holidays bring people together. Maybe you’ll be seeing people you haven’t seen in a while, maybe you’ll be seeing some people in person for the first time in almost two years, whatever the case may be, you’re going to want to look and feel your best.
We’ve all been cooped up inside for a while, and while COVID is still a presence in our lives, vaccines and other protocols across the country have started to allow people to venture back out into the world.
The stay-at-home orders were a great time to undergo plastic surgery procedures, as it gave you time to recover in the privacy of your own home without having to worry about outsiders seeing you in public. And while stay-at-home orders have lifted across the country, there’s still time to recover from surgical procedures before the holiday parties start.
Let’s take a look at some great surgical and non-surgical procedures that can help you look your best this holiday season.
Surgical Procedures for the Holidays
If you’re looking to have a surgical procedure done in time for the holidays, you might want to set up an appointment with a doctor soon. Recovery time on surgical procedures can take weeks depending on the surgery, so getting them done soon will allow you to heal in time for those upcoming family gatherings.
The other nice thing about the holidays is that you get time off from work and a lot of times your family does as well, so this could also be the perfect time to get a surgical procedure if you don’t plan on doing much traveling or visiting over the holidays.
At Dr. Adams Plastic Surgery, we specialize in breast augmentation surgery. Whether you’re looking for breast implants or a breast lift, Dr. Adams is nationally recognized as one of the best plastic surgeons. He’s even developed his own method that allows for 24-hour fast track recovery from breast augmentation surgery.
Because of the way the surgery is performed, pain and recovery time are limited, and you can get back to light day-to-day activities quicker than with other methods. This would be perfect for the holiday season.
Tummy Tuck / Liposuction
A tummy tuck in conjunction with liposuction is a great way to get rid of pesky belly fat and excess skin. This is a great procedure to have done during the fall/winter months so that you can fully recover before beach season kicks off next year. It will also help you to look and feel your best at family gatherings over the holidays.
Tummy tucks do take some time to heal properly, so having these types of procedures done when you won’t have to be going into the office is a great option. You’ll be able to return to light activity after about 2 weeks, which means you can be sure you’ll feel great for the holidays.
Non-Surgical Procedures and Treatments
In addition to surgical procedures, there are a number of non-surgical procedures and treatments you can have done that require little to no recovery time. That’s the beauty of these non-surgical options, you’ll be in and out of our offices in a matter of hours and can return to your normal schedule as soon as you step out the door.
Keep in mind though, non-surgical options are not going to provide you the same results as traditional surgery, but if you’re looking for a great way to enhance your look for those virtual gatherings this fall, these are some great options.
Injectable fillers, like Botox and dermal fillers are a great way to soften up wrinkles and age lines on your face.
A small needle is used to inject these fillers just under the skin in your face to help add subtle volume to the areas affected by age. The lines and wrinkles in these areas will then smooth over giving you a more youthful look.
Injectable fillers are a great way to rejuvenate your face without having to have traditional surgery. The procedure only takes a short amount of time and in most cases some results can be seen almost instantly.
You’ll be able to return to your normal lifestyle as soon as you leave our office. It’s quick, painless, and the results can last for months.
Our Aya Med Spa location offers skin tightening which uses ultrasounds to lift, tighten, and tone your sagging skin. It works by helping to stimulate collagen growth in your body which will help your skin appear smooth and rejuvenated.
As with injectable fillers, this procedure requires almost no downtime after the treatment and is virtually painless. Patients may appear flush immediately after the procedure, in the areas that were treated, but you can return to your normal lifestyle right away.
Skin Resurfacing Laser Treatments
Laser treatments have been making a big impact in the world of non-surgical procedures over the last few years, and for good reason. Lasers can be used to help resurface the skin to help treat wrinkles, surface irregularities, and uneven pigmentation.
If you’re looking to clear up the skin on your face for the holidays, this is a great option.
Overall if you’re looking to make some changes, whether surgical or non-surgical, now is the time to do it. Whether you’re wanting to look and feel great for the holidays, or you just want to look rejuvenated for your daily Zoom meetings, these treatments are a great way to gain back your self confidence and keep you feeling great.
