Popular Non-Surgical Procedures During the New Year

Traditionally, the earliest months of a new year are the busiest period for plastic surgeons, dermatologists and aestheticians.

Resolution spending fuels this trend, which sees customers from all walks of life kick-start the new year with a confidence-boosting, beauty-enhancing, non-invasive visit to their plastic surgeon.

Because some of the most year-round popular cosmetic procedures are surgical, such as liposuction, breast augmentation or a tummy tuck, many people steer away from these options in the new year because the downtime associated with the procedures can prevent them starting their new year with a bang.

In response, patient gravitate towards non-invasive, non-surgical procedures to enhance their appearance.

Here, Dr. Waltzman looks at some of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures during the new year.

1. CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is one of the fastest-growing cosmetic trends in the industry, and for good reason.

CoolSculpting leverages location-specific fat-freezing technology without the need for surgery to eliminate pockets of fat from the body and provide a contoured, smooth, tight aesthetic to the thighs, buttocks, love handles or lower abdomen.

Without the need for anesthesia or surgery, CoolSculpting is understandably one of the most popular new year’s cosmetic procedures because of the dramatic improvements it can have on the body, without the need for downtime.

2. Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are a year-round favorite, but people like to get the immediate and long-lasting benefits from the treatment, particularly in January.

Providing fuller, more defined faces and more voluptuous, attractive lips, dermal fillers are an easy-to-get and beneficial new year’s treatment.

3. Liquid Facelift

Finally, for those wanting a more comprehensive approach to facing the new year as vibrantly as possible, a liquid facelift might be the best option.

Using a mix of different dermal fillers and injectables with various qualities, Dr. Waltzman provides a smoother, tighter and more youthful face without the need for a surgical facelift.
