Prime holiday party season is upon us, and there’s so much to get done before then. There’s RSVPs to respond to, cocktail dresses to pick out, hostess gifts to buy… and appointments to book at the plastic surgeon?
That’s what some partygoers are planning: more people are choosing to book cosmetic procedures around the holidays, according to anecdotal surveys from cosmetic surgery resource RealSelf’s community of board-certified experts. That includes everything from Botox injections to more invasive surgical procedures like breast augmentations, facelifts or rhinoplasty.
“This is definitely my busy time,” says Dr. Dara Liotta, M.D., a double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon at NYC’s City Aesthetics at Totum Health. “It’s really the non-surgical stuff that’s huge. The non-invasive, or the minimally invasive stuff because that gives people enough time to be totally healed for the party season.”
