According to a recent study by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the overall demand for cosmetic procedures increased by 9% in 2010. As the holiday season looms and patients begin to seek aesthetic enhancements for the coming parties and gift exchanges, Sacramento plastic surgeon Dr. Charles Perry says there are a number of ways to improve patient confidence through cosmetic enhancements and lifestyle changes. Dr. Perry discusses tips for staying healthy and looking great during the holidays through dietary and lifestyle choices, as well as surgical procedures like breast augmentation in Sacramento.
At his Sacramento plastic surgery practice, Dr. Charles Perry says he has seen an increase in demand for plastic surgery as many of his patients are gearing up for the holiday rush of gift-giving and social gatherings. The latest statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) confirm an increase in overall cosmetic procedures as well over the past year, with a growth in demand of almost 9% in 2010. The ASAPS also shows a rise in U. S. approval of cosmetic enhancement to over half (51%) of the population.
Because of the increased awareness and demand for cosmetic enhancements, Dr. Perry says patients should be aware of their lifestyles and make conscious, active decisions to stay healthy in order to maximize the results such procedures can achieve. He also adds that even if patients are not seeking a cosmetic enhancement through such procedures as a facelift or laser skin resurfacing in Sacramento, they can still take action to look and feel great during the holidays by eating and sleeping well. “There are three ways we have found to maintain your sanity and vibrancy; take time to nourish your body with the right foods, sleep, and exercise. One of the ways you can do this living in the Sacramento Valley is by eating the fruits and vegetables that are in season and grown locally. Also, schedule your sleep cycle and make it a habit. We feel better, sleep better and look better when we use our bodies.”
By practicing healthy lifestyle choices, Dr. Perry says patients can fight the inevitable stresses of the holidays and feel confident in their bodies. However, he also says that sometimes living healthy and staying active can still fall short of a person’s desired aesthetic appearance and can take more time than many have available. Through enhancements such as a mommy makeover in Sacramento, Dr. Perry says plastic surgery can give patients the extra emphasis to naturally complement their body. He adds that there are a number of procedures that can increase confidence and happiness in patients. “Facelifts and liposuction are also popular this season as they afford a more dramatic change to the appearance and can be an early Christmas present to one’s self.”
Regardless of whether patients are seeking a cosmetic enhancement through plastic surgery or a healthy change in their daily routines before the holidays, Dr. Perry suggests consulting with a board-certified surgeon before undergoing any type of procedure. He also adds that selecting a dedicated and passionate doctor will ensure the best results for each individual’s needs. “It is always a very individualized choice and an exciting time to be making changes for the upcoming year.”
