’TIS THE SEASON FOR COSMETIC SURGERY By Michael A. Devlin, MD on November 13, 2015

Are you ready to ring in the new year looking renewed and refreshed? Maybe you are looking tired and stressed? As the days get shorter and the weather gets cooler, you may find yourself pondering what other changes the upcoming fall and winter months will bring.


Did you know that RIGHT NOW is the perfect time to start planning your dream cosmetic procedure?  

Fall and winter are the most popular times for cosmetic surgery performed by Little Rock Arkansas cosmetic surgeon  Dr. Michael Devlin

Even with a hectic holiday schedule you can still put your best face (or body) forward with a facelift or mommy makeover and start the New Year off right. 

Here are the top reasons to do it now!


Upcoming Holidays Mean More Time Off for Recovery

Not everyone wants to (or can) take extra time off work for a recovery period.If yours is one of the many offices that close for several days during the holidays, there’s no need to waste precious vacation time on recovery. Get a jump start on your resolutions for 2016 by scheduling your procedure in late 2015. If this is your first experience with plastic surgery and you’d like to dip your toe in the water before having a larger procedure such as a Facelift; opt for a smaller change such as Dermal Fillers. A few minor tweaks can make a difference in your appearance and boost your self-confidence for 2016.

Cooler Weather Leaves More to the Imagination

As the weather cools down and people are tucking away their swimsuits for another few months, any necessary post-surgical bandages, drains or compression garments can be more easily hidden under sweaters, scarves and other cool-weather clothes. Post-surgical swelling is a common side effect associated facelift surgery and other facial cosmetic surgery procedures. The good news is that winter’s naturally bulky coats, sweaters, vests, and scarves make it easy to cover up this swelling. If you prefer discretion, you can have plastic surgery including a facelift without your physical appearance announcing the change to your friends and colleagues—instead, you’ll simply come back from your holiday vacation looking better than ever!

A Unique Way to Show Appreciation

As it becomes more common for couples to get each other a cosmetic treatment as a holiday gift, remember that this is also the time of year to treat yourself. Many men and women begin to think about turning over a new leaf as the time for New Year’s resolutions approaches. Your dream cosmetic surgery can be the perfect way to show yourself some appreciation for a year’s worth of growth.Cosmetic surgery makes a great holiday gift, either from a loved one. For that hard to please person on your gift list, Botox is always a good choice.

More Time Spent Indoors

People tend to do more harm to their skin during warm weather months, so the winter is an ideal time to undergo a facial rejuvenation procedure  such as a Facelift to correct this damage,” says Little Rock, Arkansas cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Michael Devlin. Fall and winter is the perfect time for chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing. Exposure to the sun needs to be limited during these types of treatments. This is easier to do in cold weather when daylight hours are shorter and more time is spent indoors.

The holidays provide a welcome respite from daily life and, with a little planning, can be the perfect time for plastic surgery.
