There’s No Time Like the Present


Tax season is upon us, and for some people, that means owing money (ugh), while others can look forward to a refund. If you are lucky enough to get a refund, you may be planning to use it to pay off a bill, boost your savings, or buy something for the house or the kids. But, have you considered buying something for yourself? After all, isn’t it time you treated yourself to something new? 

What About a New Look?

Have you considered plastic surgery in the past but put off having the procedure you want? We’re here to say there’s no time like the present, and there’s no better plastic surgeon for your procedure than Dr. Jack Peterson. 

According to a 2016 survey by Forbes, 13 percent of those who had undergone plastic surgery used money from their tax refund to pay for all or part of their plastic surgery or cosmetic procedure. Thirty percent of those polled scheduled their plastic surgery procedure, such as breast augmentation or a breast-lift, to coincide with receiving their tax refund.

If you’re thinking about breast augmentation or another plastic surgery procedure, consider applying your tax refund or economic stimulus payment toward your bill. 

Why Choose to Change Your Look?

If you’re not satisfied with your appearance, you’re not alone. Thousands of people choose breast augmentation and other body surgeries to enhance or change their shape. 

Breast augmentation involves the surgical placement of implants into the breast area to increase the size, improve the shape or boost the breasts’ volume. 

The breast implant procedure is primarily for women who want to increase their overall breast size. Women who have gone through pregnancy and breastfeeding often choose the procedure because it can significantly improve breast size and fullness. 

Individuals who are ideal candidates for the breast implant procedure are at least 18 years old and healthy. 

After breast implant surgery, most women find that their breasts are perkier, fuller and more symmetrical. Overall, our breast implant patients report their clothing, such as swimsuits and bras, fit better, and the most significant benefit of all is a long-lasting boost to their self-confidence. 

Combining Procedures

Some women find that after pregnancy and breastfeeding, significant weight loss, and simply getting older, the breasts can begin to droop and sag. 

To correct sagging, many women opt for a breast-lift procedure. This procedure lifts and tightens the breast skin and also removes excess sagging skin and tissue. 

Adding the breast-lift to the breast augmentation procedure can help further enhance your new shape and boost your self-esteem. 

Steps to Plastic Surgery

Step One: Think about the procedure you want. Is there something you’d like to change about your face or body? Many people opt for surgical procedures like breast implants, body-lift procedures and tummy tucks, or they roll everything into a Mommy Makeover or Daddy Do-Over (plastic surgery is not just for women anymore!). Consider your body goals and what procedures interest you. 

Step Two: Make an appointment with a board-certified plastic surgeon. Dr. Peterson is an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon with the training and expertise to help you achieve your body and facial aesthetic goals. During your consultation, we will discuss your goals, the procedures you’re interested in and what will benefit you. 

You may come in with implants in mind and find that you would benefit the most from a breast augmentation and breast-lift combination, or you may find that you really want a little liposuction along your midsection while you’re having breast surgery, treating two body areas at once. During your consultation, we will also allow you to ask questions about the procedure and provide you with any information you may need. 

Step Three: Depending on the amount of tax refund money you’re getting back, it may be an adequate down payment for your breast augmentation or other body procedure. After your consultation, we will provide you with a treatment plan and a cost estimate. We will also go over your options for financing and how your tax refund can be applied. 

Getting a tax refund alone should not be the reason you choose plastic surgery. It’s essential to know your “why” before getting a plastic or cosmetic service. We’re here to help and would love to talk to you. 

As we said, there’s no time like the present, so call us today to learn about your options for breast implant augmentation and other body-lift procedures. We look forward to hearing from you.
