Cosmetic surgeons across the Washington, D.C. area have been flooded with new patients over the past two months. Many of these new patients have been coming to get facial rejuvenation procedures in preparation for Barak Obama’s inauguration this week.
The historic inauguration of our nation’s first African American president has led to a week of inaugural celebrations that has rivaled the Hollywood scene at the Academy Awards. Never before has the inauguration of a new president drawn so much intense interest across the country.
With over 10 inaugural balls Tuesday night as well as many other parties and concerts throughout the week, Washington, D.C. has become the “who’s who” of American society this week. Celebrities, socialites, politicians, journalists, and lobbyists have all convened on our nation’s capital this week to help celebrate this historic event. They are joined by many other Americans who felt inspired to travel from all over the country to experience history.
Most cosmetic surgeons have received a surge in requests for Botox, laser skin resurfacing treatments, and facial fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm. Most people are just looking for a quick fix — a simple procedure to help them look their best at the star-studded balls. One cosmetic surgeon has seen his patient roster double for most cosmetic surgery procedures, and it has tripled for Restylane treatments.
