The holidays are a busy time in the Salt Lake City plastic surgery industry as many individuals take advantage of the season to have their procedures done before the new year. The holidays come with time off and the chance to treat yourself to the body enhancement you’ve been wanting! There are many surgical and nonsurgical treatment options, perfect for the holiday season.

Surgical Treatment Options

The winter months are the most popular time for plastic surgery procedures. Colder temperatures and time off are perfect for bundling up indoors during recovery. Depending on your area of concern there are many popular procedures you might consider this season.

The breasts are a common area for enhancement and there are many different procedures and techniques to choose from depending on your concerns and goals. A breast augmentation can add volume to the breasts to improve size, shape, and symmetry. You can also choose to have a breast reduction if you experience discomforts from breasts that are too large. A breast lift can be added to either of these procedures or done alone to remove excess skin and lift the breasts to a more youthful and perky position.

Other surgical procedures can be used to recontour the body. Liposuction remains very popular and can be used on virtually any part of the body to remove stubborn fat cells. if you suffer from loose skin in the abdominal area, you might choose to have a tummy tuck to achieve a more toned figure.

Nonsurgical Treatment Options

If you’re not ready for a surgical procedure or don’t want to take the time off for recovery, you might choose a nonsurgical procedure option to enhance your look this season!

Injectable treatments are a popular option to smooth lines and wrinkles and get your face photo-ready for the holidays. Neuromodulators such as Botox can be used to temporarily reduce muscle activity in the face that are causing wrinkles. These injectables can be used to treat crow’s feet, frown lines, or be used to lift the brows. Dermal fillers are another injectable option, but instead of targeting the muscles, they smooth wrinkles by adding volume. These fillers can also be placed in areas such as the lips or cheeks to increase fullness. There is little discomfort or downtime required after treatment with injectables.
