You may think that plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures decline during the holidays. However, experts claim the opposite holds true. During the latter half of the month, more people seek aesthetic improvements. In fact, it is reported that the end of December is a really busy time for plastic surgeons, dermatologists, cosmetic dentists and even doctors that specialize in gastric bypass surgery.
Why are the holidays a hot time for plastic surgery? Some say that recovery from procedures, such as breast augmentation or brachioplasty, takes a great deal of recovery time. Patients that undergo these procedures are often swollen and in pain. With the holidays comes more time off from work and periods of relaxation. So, this time of the year is actually quite ideal for those seeking procedures that involve extended recovery. In other words, patients can hide out as they heal from their surgeries.
