Some women are planning ahead and getting their cosmetic procedures done this winter so they’re ready once summer arrives, a recent article in the Boston Herald reported.
According to the article, there’s a few reason for this trend. Dr. Steven Margolis, a cosmetic surgeon in New England, said some of his patients turn to liposuction in January after a frustrating year of not losing weight, and another surgeon, Dr. Gregory Antoine, said that women come to him in January to get liposuction so that they look good for summertime.
Timing cosmetic procedures early allows for plenty of recovery time before the summer season for procedures such as breast augmentation and liposuction.
Cosmetic surgeons and spa owners also said that they’ve found men are increasingly giving a cosmetic procedure as a gift for their wives or girlfriends who want to start off the New Year with a fresh body or face.
“It’s the same reason health clubs are busy in January. They get up their resolve and they say this is the year they want to do it, and, of course, they want it done right away,” said Cheryl Clarkson, who owns spa centers in the Boston area.
Dr. Frenzel offers an array of cosmetic surgery procedures for those who want to start the New Year with a new look, as well as non-surgical procedures, including Botox, CO2 laser resurfacing and laser vein treatment.
