What's really on your holiday wish list? Is it that new watch you've been eyeing at the mall for months? What about the latest model car you test drove last week? Or is it the kitchen cutlery you've had on your list for the past few years that seemingly never appears within the unwrapped boxes?
The holiday season is often filled with buying for others, making it hard to determine exactly what you desire most. For some people though, the answer is as simple as a change to their appearance.
According to a recent article from Health News Digest, the holiday season is the busiest time for cosmetic and plastic surgery treatments. The report, detailed byThe American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), found that requests for treatments and surgeries increased by over 25 percent from Thanksgiving through the New Year.
"During this time of year, everyone is more social and are seeing friends and family who they may not see often, says facial plastic surgeon Dr. Edwin Williams, president of the AAFPRS. "There is more pressure to look your best, which is where less invasive procedures fit in."
For many, the most popular treatments during this time include rhinoplasty procedures, eyelid surgery and a range of injectable options. With the increase of modern medicine and invasive surgery options, patients are able to make a change without having to undergo extensive aftercare or at-home resting. It's also great for those seeking to make a subtle change before seeing friends and family for the first time in a while.
