Why the Holiday Season Might Be the Best Time for Liposuction

By: Dr. Christopher Khorsandi


The holidays generally mean good times with family and friends, parties, food, and making new memories. The quieter time after Thanksgiving can provide a good opportunity for you to improve your appearance with liposuction to prepare you for the New Year. Getting liposuction post Thanksgiving will allow you time to heal from minor discomfort and be ready for New Year’s Eve parties and new opportunities in the coming year.

Liposuction Can Improve Your Look For the New Year

Liposuction is a technique that removes excess fat deposits from beneath the skin in areas such as the hips, buttocks, thighs, breast, back arms and neck. It can be helpful when dieting and exercise does not produce the results you require in these areas of the body. Liposuction can help to smooth the skin, reduce bulges and eliminate dimpling.

Liposuction Procedures

If you have pockets of resistant fat and good skin elasticity, liposuction can help to remove unsightly lumps to allow you to look better in clothes and improve your overall image. A number of different procedures can be used, including tumescent fluid, ultrasonic, suction-assisted or laser. Your surgeon will advise you on the best techniques for your needs.

Post Liposuction Care

Recovery from liposuction procedures varies from a few days to a few weeks, depending on the amount of fat removed from the body. The majority of swelling decreases in 10-14 days while some residual swelling can remain for several weeks. Physicians recommend avoiding vigorous exercise for 4 to 6 weeks after surgery.  Over the long term, the effects of the procedure may be influenced by weight gain or lack of adequate exercise. Many people find that the period after Thanksgiving gives them a quieter period that is the perfect period of downtime needed to recovery from liposuction procedures. While the cold winds blow and the snow begins to fall, you can prepare for the New Year with a whole new look and renewed feeling of confidence.

Enjoying the New You

Your liposuction post Thanksgiving will allow you to enjoy the Christmas season and New Year’s celebrations with an improved appearance and better mental attitude. Make your holiday photos shine this year with a liposuction procedure that sculpts your body into a better shape.
