New Year’s resolutions are a great way to jumpstart a healthier and happier life. Unfortunately, a whopping 80 percent of resolutions fail by the second week of February, according to U.S. News. If you are tired of making resolutions at the start of the year only to struggle to keep them weeks later, Dr. Lloyd Landsman may be able to help. Here, he discusses the top plastic surgery requests inspired by New Year’s resolutions.
Liposuction and Tummy Tuck
Unsurprisingly, many New Year resolutions focus on losing weight and exercising. Body contouring procedures like liposuction and tummy tuck are popular among men and women who wish to fine-tune their body contours after losing a substantial amount of weight. For others, these procedures serve as motivation to stick to their weight loss and fitness goals. Liposuction eliminates small pockets of fat that cannot be removed with diet and exercise alone, while tummy tuck removes excess skin and tightens the underlying muscles and tissues for a flatter contour. The removal of excess skin increases mobility and makes it easier to exercise.
Facial Peels and Photofacials
The start of a new year inspires many of us to take better care of our skin. Whether you want to turn back the clock on your facial appearance or address sun damage, non-surgical skin treatments like facial peels and photofacials can help. A facial peel treatment involves applying a topical product or chemical solution to the skin, sloughing away dead and dull skin cells. This in turn triggers the body’s collagen regeneration process to reveal healthier, fresher skin.
Like facial peels, photofacials boost the production of collagen to promote younger-looking skin. Photofacials use precisely-calibrated light energy to target old skin cells. The result is tighter and firmer skin. Facial peels and photofacials vary in strength and can be used to treat wrinkles, lines, age spots, acne scarring, uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation and other skin concerns.
Breast Augmentation and Male Breast Reduction
Breast augmentation is one of the most frequently requested plastic surgery procedures among women who simply want to feel more confident in their skin. Through the placement of breast implants, breast augmentation enhances the shape, size and volume of the breasts, and creates a more curvaceous and attractive physique.
Like women, many men feel self-conscious about the appearance of their chest. Male breast reduction surgery treats enlarged male breast tissue, a medical condition known as gynecomastia. By removing excess skin and tissue, male breast reduction creates a flatter and more classically masculine chest appearance.
After surgery, many of Dr. Landsman’s patients report feeling a boost in self-confidence and motivation to pursue personal/romantic relationships.
