Facelift Season?

You wouldn’t suppose that there might be seasonality to cosmetic surgery, but over the past few years, I have noticed a pattern in my practice.   In mid-January facelift consultations seem to spike.   The Holidays are over, popular social events like summer weddings and reunions are more than several months away.   The end of January and February seems to be the choice time for patients to explore having facial rejuvenation surgery.  About 95,000 facelifts are performed each year.  In Minneapolis, winter is a great time to recuperate without attracting too many questions and re-emerge to look rested and refreshed like returning from a relaxing vacation.   Unlike the contestants of the reality show Bridalplasty  savvy patients that opt for anti-aging procedures want to plan ahead to look their best, especially for important events.    It is my recommendation that scheduling surgery well in advance of an important social occasion is optimal for a safe and stress-free recovery.

    I just wanted to leave a comment on behalf of Dr. Bashioum, although it’s not specifically about today’s post on facelifts. I recently had breast surgery and I cannot express enough how pleased I am with my augmentation procedure. My first consult with Dr. Bashioum was when I was 18 he was kind enough to tell me to come back when I was older, when I was really certain about the procedure. I am now currently 26 and it was the perfect time for me. I was greatful for his sincerity. Not only do my breasts look undoubtedly natural and well proportioned, but they also healed impeccably. My incisions, which were one of my greatest concerns, are nearly invisible. Dr. Bashioum is an outstanding person and surgeon. His experience is evident in my results and his concern for his patients is unmatched. I am greatful for the time he took and the compassion and kindness his entire office showed me. I know the ideal is not to look for perfection, however I feel I now have perfect breasts!!! Thank you so much to Dr. Bashioum, Sandy, Becky, Peggy, and Brett you all have changed my life. I smile everytime I look in the mirror! I will forever recommend you every chance I get!

    Waiting to have cosmetic surgery until you are older can be difficult. However, I believe that waiting until you are emotionally mature enough to choose aesthetic changes is equally as important. Of course that is not to say that age is the only factor in maturity. Teenage years can be trying times for adolescents. I truely believe teenage plastic surgery should be undertaken with the utmost of careful consideration. Except for cases of congenital deformity, I almost always recommend waiting to have cosmetic surgery until you are a young adult.
