It’s the most wonderful time of the year…to visit the plastic surgeon. Seriously. According to plastic surgeons around the country, requests to go under the needle or knife spike during the holiday season.
“The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas definitely is a busy time of year for my practice. Patients want to look freshened-up for holiday parties,” Marina Peredo, a New York City-based dermatologist, tells Allure. “They want to look their best for the pictures and selfies that are taken during the holiday season.”
Besides the never-ending parade of holiday party photo booths, the season is also an oddly practical time of year to have a procedure.
