We all make New Year’s resolutions, but most of us fail on them before the end of January—most of us barely make it one week into the New Year! The most common resolutions center around living healthier, exercising more, eating better, or achieving some long-put-off task or goal.
Aesthetic Procedures for New Year’s Resolution Success
So, where does plastic surgery fit into helping fulfill your resolutions? Plastic surgery is more than nip/tuck and vanity; if done properly it can help you feel more confident, youthful, and vibrant and give you that extra motivation to achieve those resolutions.
Recently at a local restaurant, I was stopped by a gentleman who told me I had performed his wife’s mommy makeover, and he could not thank us enough … not because of the change in her appearance but because he saw her renewed confidence after surgery that had been missing. She had bought a Peloton bike after her surgery and was on it daily, achieving previously unachievable fitness goals.
Which procedures or treatments can help with your New Year’s resolutions? It does not have to be something as dramatic as surgery, though it can be. Sometimes the most long-lasting change for your health and beauty is a change in your daily routine.
Facial Rejuvenation & Skin Goals
Develop a plan: By meeting with a board-certified plastic surgeon and licensed aesthetician, you can develop a comprehensive plan to meet your goals. The best investment you can make for your face is quality skin care products and having a routine. No two faces are the same so make sure you have a consultation with someone who can develop an individualized treatment plan.
Plan periodic treatments: Or you can do more curative treatments to get a reset on your skin health, like SkinPen® microneedling, BBL photofacial, or HALO® ablative laser during the colder winter months. (Although it’s not too cold here in Texas, thankfully.)
Rejuvenate skin: You can also meet with your board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss BOTOX®, dermal fillers, or other nonsurgical skin tightening treatments, such as FaceTite or Morpheus8, to gain a more extensive change and refresh your appearance.

If you have always wanted to enhance your appearance, don’t wait: We have seen some of our more dramatic transformations in our rhinoplasty (nose job) patients. You can sense their confidence change as they come back in for their follow-up appointments, and if you look closely at the ‘after’ photos, you can usually pick up a not-so-subtle smile! These patient have often hidden their faces due to concern of having a nasal bump/hump or feeling that their nose is not proportional to their face. Working with a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty can help you achieve these goals.
Body Contouring Resolutions
Body transformation: For our bodies, more invasive surgical treatments like liposuction or tummy tucks can help reverse the changes from the aging process or pregnancy to regain that confidence and feel bikini-ready. One of our recent mommy makeover patients confided in us that, after her surgery, she no longer runs from the pool to grab her cover-up.
I love Dr. Hill and his entire staff – they are professional and committed to their patients. I recently had a major procedure and they have bent over backwards to make sure that I am ok, adjusting my meds, seeing me at the last minute, assuring me that everything is great! I can’t wait to finish the journey with them after losing 125+ pounds I am beginning to feel confident in myself again and BEAUTIFUL! Thank you Lone Star Plastic Surgery! – Facebook review
Reshaping your breasts: We often hear from women that they want to fill out their bikini tops more and feel that their breasts are proportional to the rest of their bodies. Breast augmentation remains one of the most common plastic surgery procedures annually, and a board-certified plastic surgeon can work with you to meet your aesthetic ideals. A breast lift with an implant can restore that youthful appearance with fullness after changes related to the aging process, weight fluctuations, or pregnancy.
