Plastic Surgeries to Accomplish and Complement Your New Year’s Resolutions
There’s something so refreshing about the New Year, and resolutions can be the perfect way to motivate yourself to make the most of the next twelve months by setting clear goals. We each have our own strengths and weaknesses, so resolutions aimed at self-improvement can run the gamut from a healthier lifestyle to career advancement to better emotional health. Depending on what you’re hoping to accomplish this year, our plastic surgery office in Atlanta may be able to help.
Whipping your body into shape is one of the most common New Year’s resolutions around, because nearly all of us have at least one area we’re unhappy with, whether it’s the “love handles,” a “tummy pooch,” or a “double chin.” As a double board-certified plastic surgeon, I recognize the importance of putting your health first, so I always encourage my patients to reach their goal weight through a healthy diet and exercise regimen. But once you’ve reached your goal, procedures like liposuction, a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), arm lift, breast lift, or male breast reduction can be the perfect way to put the finishing touches on your physique and, if needed, tighten up any excess sagging skin.
If you resolved to recapture your youthful spirit:
It’s easy to let the vibrant energy of youth wane as you get older and as you become busier and busier with all of life’s responsibilities. Fortunately, it’s never too late to get it back, and many of my patients find that if they give their appearance a youthful boost, it’s easier for their emotions to follow. The rejuvenation procedure you choose will depend on your unique anatomy and how aging has affected you. The most common option is my Band Aid Mini Facelift, a minimally invasive surgery I developed and have perfected over the past twenty years, which removes excess skin and repositions the underlying facial muscles to achieve natural-looking results, all in-office with gentle numbing and specialized techniques so that it requires just half the recovery time and half the cost of a traditional face lift. Depending on your needs, you may also be a candidate for a Band Aid Micro Mini Facelift, eyelid surgery, a brow lift, or a more comprehensive face lift.
If you resolved to try something new:
With our day-to-day routines keeping us busy, it’s common for us to fall into a bit of a rut and simply let the days go by, but for many people, getting out of their comfort zone and trying something new can add a little zest back into their lives. If this sounds like the problem you’re trying to fix, try treating yourself to a new cosmetic treatment you’ve never tried before. For those who are new to the anti-aging scene, injectables like Botox®, Dysport®, Restylane®, Juvéderm®, and Radiesse® can be a great way to start, because they offer quick treatment times and the results are temporary, so you can try a few options throughout the year to see what you like best. Or, you prefer something to enhance the quality of your skin itself, learn more about our Band Aid Non-Surgical Skin Tightening and Band Aid Laser Skin Resurfacing.
Making a New Year’s resolution is all about self-reflection and figuring out what you need to do to make the upcoming year better than the one that just passed. Whether or not your goals involve plastic surgery, we wish you all success in your journey to become your most confident and beautiful self.
