Posted in Plastic Surgery Procedures

The holidays may seem like the busiest time of the year, but they can also be one of the best times to have that aesthetic surgery you’ve been considering all year long. Many patients take advantage of the long holiday break for some rejuvenation and self-care by squeezing in an appointment with a plastic surgeon.

Whether you’ve been wishing for a complete mommy makeover with body procedures, a facelift to help turn back the hands of time, or learn more about injectable solutions to make your skin glow in holiday photos, double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Leonard Gray offers these procedures and more at Bay Area Plastic Surgery. to help you feel and look your best during the most wonderful time of the year!

Winter Clothes

Reason number one that you should consider the holidays for your procedure is because of ‘sweater weather’ and other winter clothing options that are perfect for concealing any swelling, bruising, or the required compression garments during the recovery phase that generally follow a surgical procedure. Shawls, scarves, sweatpants, and baggy sweaters can all help to cover and protect surgical incisions.

During the colder winter months, you can better protect your incisions from too much sun exposure and avoid unnecessary scarring.

Perfect Timing

The holiday season provides a perfect time to undergo plastic surgery and non-surgical enhancements to prepare you for the summer swimsuit season. During the holidays, you can request time off work, giving yourself ample time to heal and recover from your procedure and spend more time with your family members watching your favorite holiday movies. Then, when spring and summer come around again, you are fully healed and recovered from your surgery just in time for bikini season.

Most Popular Surgeries to Have During the Holidays

With the weather becoming cooler, more time spent indoors, comfortable layers, and time for recovery, the holidays really are the perfect opportunity to pursue your aesthetic procedures. Here are some of the most common procedures performed during the holiday season:

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is one of the most common procedures done during the holiday season. Whether with or without a breast lift, women are able to fully recover during the holidays without taking extra time off work. The results will have you ready for summer bikini season.


Liposuction is very popular before and during the holiday season because concealing post-procedure compression garments becomes an easy task under your winter layers. The results will also be appreciated well ahead of the summer season.

Facial procedures

Various facial plastic surgery procedures like facelift or eyelid surgery are also extremely popular for both men and women during the holidays. It gives you enough recovery time in order to look rejuvenated and revitalized for the coming new year.
