Plastic surgeries and beauty treatments are becoming ever more popular nowadays as we all strive for a healthier lifestyle and look. Any plastic surgeon, however, will tell you that the spring is the season for breast augmentations and liposuction, and the season for facelifts is right after Christmas.
In Dr Ahmad’s years of experience he has evidently noticed that during the final months of the year – including Christmas up to New Years – there is a surge on total mommy makeovers including abdominoplasty and facial surgeries. This is commonly associated with the vacation time off that is perfect for recovery after the invasive procedures.
Other than the most Wonderful time of the year it also tends to be one of the most sociable times of the year where we see most of our friends (New year) and family (Xmas) and of course we all aim to impress and look good on the festive days. Along with the proliferation of selfies that can often show a close up of our most inner “fears”, plastic surgery at Xmas souunds like the perfect gift and solution for the New year ahead.
According to RealSelf’s community of board-certified experts, there’s an increasing number of people booking cosmetic procedures in the run-up to the festive season, both for non-invasive surgery like botox and more drastic operations like facelifts and breast enlargements.
The gifting of cosmetic surgery is up 20% to 35%, depending on the procedure and practice. Likewise, an Elle.com post called on plastic surgeons reporting that sales of gift cards—often for $150 to $200, which cover low-cost procedures like medical-grade peels—have undergone a “dramatic increase.”
