As the weather cools, thoughts turn to the upcoming winter holidays. If you’re like many other people, you’re planning on how best to spend those days during the holiday season. And, like many, you may be wishing there was a way to look your best for holiday get-togethers and for the coming new year.

The pre-holiday season is a busy time at cosmetic surgery offices, including at About Faces Cosmetic Surgery in Tucson, Arizona. A spokesperson for the American Academy of Facial and Plastic Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) says cosmetic treatments and surgeries increase from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Eve, with facelifts being the most common procedure.


If you live outside of Tucson, you may want to consider a cosmetic surgery getaway. Make an appointment with Dr. Mikel Lo and the staff at About Faces Cosmetic Surgery and, while you’re here, you will not only enjoy some of the best weather and scenery in the country, but you can escape the snow and sleet by visiting one of Tucson’s fabulous resorts during your visit to see Dr. Lo. When you get back home, your friends will know that your getaway left you appearing relaxed, refreshed, and younger looking!

Considering a Non-surgical Treatment?

You can get immediate results with only some minor swelling and sometimes bruising that goes away in days. From Botox and Dysport, which can smooth wrinkles, to dermal fillers, which refresh the face and lip lines, to laser treatments and hydrafacials, now is the right time of year to consider procedures that have little to no down time. Microneedling is another minimally invasive procedure that generates new collagen and skin tissue to create smoother, firmer and more-toned skin. It’s most commonly used on the face for scars, wrinkles and large pores.

Face the Facts

Wherever you live, winter brings drier air that can irritate sensitive skin and cause more fine lines and wrinkles on your face. The chilly months are a prime time to seek hydrafacial treatments to keep the skin hydrated, plump and youthful looking. Mild chemical peels or dermaplaning can be scheduled at the same time to heighten the effect.

About Faces Cosmetic Surgery is one of the only practices in Tucson that offers the new technology of Renuvion® J-Plasma which is a revolutionary, FDA-cleared procedure for tightening skin.

Popular Procedures

Even with so many options, facial cosmetic surgery procedures most commonly requested during the holiday season include the traditional facelift, neck lift  and eyelid lift or blepharoplasty which, while extremely popular, all require a bit of downtime. If you’re thinking of getting a surgical procedure, be sure to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lo to ensure a full recovery by the holidays.

Gift of youthful appearance

Are you making your holiday wish list now? Do you know someone who would love to have cosmetic surgery or non-invasive cosmetic procedures gifted to them? One of the growing trends in the past few years has been giving prepaid cosmetic surgery or non-invasive procedures as a holiday gift.
