According to CNN, nearly eight out of 10 federal taxpayers are entitled to a cash refund. As of February 2015 (one month into this year’s tax filing season), federal tax returns were averaging $3,120.
If you’re entitled to a refund, how do you plan to spend it? You could pay down debt, or cushion your savings account. If you’re already in good financial standing, you could opt to spend your tax refund on a more personal matter such as rejuvenating your appearance.
You wouldn’t be the only one to do so — according to the popular forum RealSelf.com, 29 percent of the site’s users plan to put at least a portion of their tax return toward a cosmetic procedure.
If you do decide to invest some or all of your tax return into cosmetic enhancement with plastic surgery, Drs. Samuel Pearl and Alexander Ereso invite you to consider their services. Even a minor, non-invasive treatment can help you look and feel your best. Here, the surgeons share ideas:
Correct Skin Imperfections with SilkPeel Dermalinfusion
SilkPeel dermalinfusion is ideal for treating a wide array of noticeable skin flaws, including hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin texture and acne scars. Treatment is similar to microdermabrasion in that it gently sloughs away the upper layers of dead skin cells to reveal fresh, radiant skin underneath. Unlike microdermabrasion, SilkPeel does not use harsh abrasive particles, so treatment is gentle and comfortable.
Add Youthful Cheek Volume with Voluma Treatment
One of the most exciting dermal fillers available at our practice is Juvederm Voluma XC. This is the first and only FDA-approved filler intended to plump and lift the cheek area for a more youthful-looking face. Voluma XC can be injected into the apex, apples or hollows of the cheek to restore volume and correct areas that look sunken-in. Treatment is quick and convenient, and does not require downtime. Results can last up to two years.
Sculpt Body Contours with SAFELipo
If you feel like you’re always dieting and exercising, yet cannot achieve your desired fat reduction results, Drs. Pearl and Ereso want to introduce you to the SAFELipo procedure. The innovative liposuction procedure can remove excess fat from the thighs, knees, waist, upper arms and neck. The special SAFELipo technique enables our surgeons to produce results that look smoother and more natural than traditional liposuction treatment.
Add Cleavage with Autologous Fat Transfer
Do you want bigger, fuller breasts and softer-looking cleavage without implants? Drs. Pearl and Ereso recommend the fat transfer, or fat grafting process, which involves harvesting donor fat from another area of the body (e.g., the abdomen, back or thighs) and injecting the fat into the breasts to add volume and shape. Fat transfer is a less invasive alternative to breast implant placement, and produces a more natural looking and feeling breast.
