Cosmetic surgery during the holidays
By Dr. Sutton Graham on November 24, 2009
Many people ask us about having cosmetic plastic surgery during the holiday season -- Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years.
Some find it surprising that anyone would want to miss the typical gatherings, travel and celebrations that are so common around that time. Many businesses slow their pace around the holidays. Planning, decorating, gift purchases, etc. seem to take additional time. Many people take time off from work.
Patients consult Dr. Graham, often months in advance, to have surgery done and recover during the holiday period. They are often very organized, having planned this well in advance, and often completed other preparations months ahead. They use the holiday breaks to allow them time to recover while others are traveling or celebrating, and a week or so later they are back at their routines. Frequently, other people haven't noticed their absence, but can see how much better they look.
