The holidays are soon approaching, meaning it’s time to settle down, spend time with loved ones, and reflect on the past year. This is also the time of year that a lot of people decide to schedule plastic surgery procedures, for several different reasons. Many are looking forward to self-improvement in the new year, while others are aiming to enhance their look for upcoming holiday parties. It’s true that many people take time off of work around the holidays, so why not use this down time to treat yourself to plastic surgery?
There is a wide variety of procedures that Dr. Roth specializes in, including both surgical and non-surgical. If you’re looking to spruce up your appearance but don’t want a fully invasive surgery, you can opt for a non-surgical procedure, such as injectables or CoolSculpting.
The cold, dry air of the winter tends to irritate and dry out your skin, intensifying the look of existing wrinkles. The goal of injectable procedures is to fill in these fine lines and smooth out skin. Botox is a popular injectable option to reduce frown lines, and it only takes 10 minutes of small injections to get results lasting for 4 months. Or, restore skin’s hydration and volume around your nose and mouth with Juvederm, which injects a hyaluronic acid gel to make skin appear more youthful. This option takes around 15 minutes and can last up to a year.
CoolSculpting is an effective, non-surgical alternative to liposuction. The procedure involves a special machine that freezes fat cells, which are then naturally processed and removed from your body. The best part is that patients can return to their normal lives immediately, with the exception of minor redness or discomfort. Every staff member at Las Vegas Plastic Surgery is CoolSculpting certified, ensuring your safety and comfort throughout the procedure.
Most non-surgical procedures have little to no recovery time, making them ideal last-minute options to prepare for all the inevitable holiday photo-ops! Las Vegas Plastic Surgery is among the top 1% of all BOTOX® Cosmetic and filler injectors in the US, so you know you’re getting the best in the business!
Surgical procedures are popular during the holiday season as well. More invasive surgeries typically means a longer recovery, so the holidays are a great time to get a procedure done. For most, this time of year means a vacation from work and spending time relaxing indoors, so it makes sense to plan your surgery around this. You can also conceal any post-op scarring/bandages more easily with cold-weather layered outfits. Some of the most popular holiday procedures include facelifts and tummy tucks, as people desire to feel more confident with their appearance going into the new year.
A facelift (or rhytidectomy) removes excess skin and repositions some fat and muscles in your face to tighten and lift it, creating the look of younger skin. Facelifts typically take around 3-4 hours and recovery time is about 2 weeks.
Tummy tucks (or abdominoplasty) involve the removal of excess skin and fat from the abdomen, making the stomach appear more tight and toned. This procedure takes 1-2 hours and most people can go back to work after 2 weeks of recovering, however, strenuous activity should be avoided for around 6 weeks post-op.
Dr. Roth and his staff all share the same goal: to help patients look and feel their best.
