Spring is almost here!
It is the end of February already, and that means that Springtime will be here before we know it.
This is a busy time of year in the cosmetic surgery world, because people start to think about their bodies, which will come out of hiding from under those winter clothes.
What procedures seem to spike during this time of year?
Breast Augmentation and Liposuction are the most popular surgical procedures, and with the introduction of the silicone cohesive gel implants (Gummy Bear Implants) from Sientra and Allergan, more and more women are interested in finding out more about them.
Also, laser hair removal and spider vein treatments are very popular pre-bikini season.
Remember, anything that causes a bruise should be done well in advance of hot weather and skin exposure.
Facial treatments such as IPL, Fraxel, Fractora and other laser treatments should also be done on skin that has not had sun exposure, or any anticipated sun exposure.
Also, the Oscars ceremony in Beverly Hills just ended, and all of the celebs were given complimentary Vampire Facelifts in their swag bags. This is a great procedure that can be done on any skin type and has no downtime. More on that at vampirefacelift.com.
So, make sure to prepare in advance for spring break vacations and summer get aways, because they will be here before you know it!
I am always here to help you find a surgeon or do your treatments. You can always find me at Beverlyhillsrn.
