Procedures For The Holidays

The holidays bring everyone together. The 2021 holiday season presents a unique opportunity, as most of us had our family time limited as a result of COVID. What better way to dazzle your friends, family, and loved ones this holiday season with a rejuvenated, youthful-looking appearance! That’s right-there’s still plenty of time to get the look you want for the holidays. Let’s take a look at some of the more in-demand procedures this holiday season. 

Modified Mini Facelift

Who says the best things have to be big and flashy? Especially around the holidays, small packages can elicit the biggest reactions (think engagement rings). When it comes to cosmetic procedures, smaller is sometimes better. A mini modified facelift, for example, is the perfect pre-holiday treatment!

Also known as a “short scar” facelift, a modified mini facelift involves the surgeon making two small cuts just behind the ears, which allows for a significant lifting of the face with minimal scarring. In addition to substantially reduced healing time, a modified mini facelift also typically comes with a lower risk of complications, and can be completed in as little as a few hours!

Though modified mini facelifts produce stunning results, the procedure is not for everyone. Ideal patients are typically age 45 and younger and in good health. Patients must also have relatively firm neck and jaw skin. Be sure to tell your doctor about any complications or health issues before undergoing any procedures. A good rule of thumb is to have a physical examination with your physician before scheduling any cosmetic procedure. 

Eyelid Lift

The skin around the eyes starts to show signs of aging as young as your 30s! As we age, the thin, delicate skin around our eyes starts to sag, resulting in a perpetually tired look. Who wants to look tired around the holidays, let alone at all? With an eyelid lift, you can achieve the look you want-with minimal downtime-to be ready for the holidays!

Also known as blepharoplasty, an eyelid lift is designed to eliminate saggy tissue around the eyes, creating a tightened, alert, youthful appearance. The best part of an eyelid lift? It addresses those loose bags of skin below the eyes, meaning no more dark circles! 

Your surgeon can even work with you to personalize your proceduretargeting the upper or lower eyelids or even both. Patients can see immediate benefits, and downtime is typically anywhere from two to four weeks. That means you can schedule your procedure today and be fully healed by Thanksgiving!


When it comes to body fat, the old adage “first on, last off” is actually true. That means, even with the most rigorous exercise and diet, that stubborn fat you’ve been packing for years isn’t coming off any time soon. Fortunately, for those long-dormant problem areas, there’s liposuction. Best of all, liposuction can be completed in several patient-friendly ways. 

Liposuction procedures use suction to separate fat from the body, slimming and reshaping areas of the body by reducing excess fat deposits to improve body contours and proportion. By reducing your fat cells by as much as 90%, patients can see significant results in the abdomen and waist, hips and buttocks, inner and outer thighs, calves and ankles, upper arms, and even the cheeks, jowls, and neck. 

Patients typically need no more than three to five days of recovery time-and over the following six months patients typically see stunning results. Liposuction can give you the body you’ve been dreaming of without giving up your favorite foods or spending grueling hours in the gym. Importantly, however, liposuction can be the spark you need to kick yourself into a healthy lifestyle!

Consider combining liposuction with your new year’s resolution and start living better today!
