Top 5 Plastic Surgeries to Help You Dazzle this Holiday Season

The holiday season is the best time to look fabulous! So you can sparkle and look your best during this season, start planning for your plastic surgery procedures. With long holiday breaks coming, it is the perfect time to make an appointment with your plastic surgeons at Palm Aesthetics Plastic Surgery Center. It might feel too early to start thinking about your Thanksgiving dinner or Christmas celebration, but the days are shorter and and most procedures take weeks for the full results to become apparent, although there are some procedures that provide immediate results. Many of our Sarasota and Lakewood Ranch patients coordinate their plastic surgery and recovery with time off around this time of the year. November and December holiday breaks are a perfect time for many patients to undergo plastic surgery because of time away from work, their children are on break from school and their schedules are less demanding. Here’s the list of the top five procedures that we think will help you look your best for the season’s festivities, but start planning now.

Breast Augmentation

Plan 3-6 Months in Advance

Breast augmentation procedure adds volume and shape, creating a fuller and more proportionate silhouette for your body. Depending on your aesthetic goals, you breast size can be enhanced be a few inches or more. At Palm Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center, our plastic surgeons are committed to providing natural-looking results and making your breast look lifted, fuller and more youthful. Breast augmentation accentuates waists and hips. Recovery time after breast surgery takes about 1-2 weeks for most women and you can get back to your regular routine in about a week. It takes 3-6 months for the swelling to subside and for the breast implants to settle into position. The sooner you schedule you breast augmentation, the more you’ll look your best during the holidays.

Liposuction with ProLipo Plus™

Plan 2-4 Months in Advance

Sciton’s ProLipo Plus™ is a minimally invasive, high-powered body contouring laser treatment that melts unwanted fat and coagulates tissue, resulting in a firmer skin and slimmer body. It beautifully contours your body without any need for general anesthesia and large incisions. The most common treated areas for ProLipo Plus™ are the face, neck, arms, waist, flanks, buttocks, as well as the inner and outer thighs. Recovery from liposuction will take about a week. Most patients are back to work and routine activities in 5-7 days after ProLipo Plus™ treatment. Two months is the minimum recovery time as liposuction can cause swelling. So plan well in advance so you can enjoy the benefits of having a tighter and beautifully-contoured body during the holidays.

Tummy Tuck

Plan 3-6 Months in Advance

Tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty, is one of the most common body procedures, particularly for women who have multiple children. This surgical procedure flattens and reshapes the belly by eliminating excess fat and skin. An internal girdle is then formed by tightening the muscles. This is an ideal option for those who are not seeing any results despite making healthy choices and doing regular exercises. After the abdominoplasty, you will be required to wear a compression and supportive abdominal binder for about six weeks to prevent fluid buildup and provide abdominal support while you recover. As a major surgical procedure, it’s good to plan well in advance for your tummy tuck.


Plan 1-2 Months in Advance

Labiaplasty is an outpatient vaginal surgery performed to repair a physical defect of the labia (congenital or accident-related) or to reduce the size of the labia minora and clitoral hood for aesthetic or functional reasons. The recovery depends on the type of labiaplasty performed and often the skill of the surgeon. Recovery time is usually 3-4 weeks and at least a week off of work is recommended, with gradual return to regular physical activities. By then, the surgical wounds have healed, provided there are no complications.

Arm Tuck

Plan 2-3 Months in Advance

Arm lift or brachioplasty is the surgical removal of excess fat and skin under the upper arm. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia.During your initial recovery period you’re allowed restricted arm movements and you will not be able to lift anything heavy for a while. Post-operatively, you will be required to wear bandages from the hands to the arm pit for up to six weeks. Planning ahead of time for arm tuck ensures you’ll have beautiful taut arms to flaunt for the holiday toasts.
