“New Year, New You!” Can Plastic Surgery Help Kickstart Your New Year Goals?

On January first, many people famously make resolutions to look or live better all year. Gym memberships suddenly spike, as does interest in plastic surgery. But can a cosmetic change really kickstart a New Year’s resolution? The answer is absolutely—provided the goal is realistic, and the person is right for the procedure.

Positive Change Always Begins Within

Plastic surgery is not right for everyone, nor is everyone right for it. An obvious example is someone who desperately wants cosmetic surgery but who cannot clearly articulate why. The decision for surgery must always be grounded in an honest and healthy perspective on the self. A good plastic surgeon will recognize when change needs to begin within and will recommend seeing an appropriate professional instead of suggesting surgery.

Cosmetic Surgery to Support a “New You”

If the desire for cosmetic change comes from a healthy place, and the person is physically and mentally well suited for surgery, then in many cases the right procedure really can help a New Year’s resolution succeed.

For example, liposuction can help bring out a more gregarious “new you” when diet and exercise alone aren’t enough. A smoother, tighter contour that makes one look and feel more attractive can also boost social confidence, which will bolster a resolution to broaden one’s social horizons. Scheduling surgery to correct compromised features like drooped eyelids or a deviated septum can restore function or alleviate discomfort while also enhancing appearance. A New Year’s “mommy makeover” package with a tummy tuck, lipo, breast reduction, and/or labiaplasty (vaginal rejuvenation) can give mothers a post-partum jumpstart.

Career-driven Cosmetic Change

Another New Year’s resolution that can inspire the desire for cosmetic surgery is professional growth. Some younger models and actors undergo procedures to correct or enhance particular features for greater media appeal. Career advancement also prompts more mature professionals to have procedures that may reverse signs of aging. While surgeons cannot turn back time, facial injections with dermal fillers like Botox® and Juvéderm can give the face a more youthful appearance that lasts up to two years—far longer than most New Years’ resolutions!

A consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the best way to know if plastic surgery can help kickstart a “new year, new you” resolution.
