The Best Time for Plastic Surgery
When deciding to undergo plastic surgery, you may ask yourself, “When is the best time to have surgery?” Most people have found that the cooler winter months are a great time to relax during the recovery process. Cold, rainy weather equals relaxing inside by a nice fire or laying on the couch binge watching television shows. This has made winter a popular time of year for plastic surgery.
Below is a list of just some of the reasons to undergo a plastic surgery procedure while the weather is cold and cozy.
Great Way to Start Off the New Year!
A new year, a new you. It’s time to make a change and become a better you, and why not do it at the beginning of a new year? There is nothing better than starting off the year with cosmetic procedures such as injectables to “freshen” up the face and gain a more youthful appearance. For what diet and exercise have failed to achieve, liposuction or tummy tuck surgery can help you lose those last few inches or slim the body to fit into last year’s jeans.
Have Plenty of Time to Recover Before Summer Hits
The majority of plastic surgeries require weeks to make a full recovery, and it can take months before final results are fully visible. Summertime is when you want to show off your improved appearance. If you book your surgery in the winter, you will have a few months for recovery and for surgical wounds to heal and fade before beach season hits. You will be summer ready and fully recovered to enjoy your new body and look.
Perfect Time to Stay Inside
Summer can be so distracting with so many activities going on such as trips to the beach, BBQs, and vacations. This is why winter is a better time for surgical procedures. Winter tends to involve more indoor activities due to the cold, rain, and snow. The cool and cozy weather will keep you indoors and force you to rest more as opposed to recovering during hot, fun summer months. It will be much easier to avoid sun exposure, which is important because harmful UV rays could delay healing. This is a perfect time to take a vacation from work for a week or two to allow yourself to recover in the most comfortable way – at home!
It’s Easier to Cover up
Some surgical wounds, scars, and dressings can be unflattering to show off. Having surgery during the winter makes it easier to wear warm, loose clothing. This helps to cover up surgical wounds and protect them from the dirt or sun, providing better and safer healing all around. By the time it warms up, you will be fully recovered and ready to unveil the “new you” to friends and family.
