3 Reasons Why Winter Is The Perfect Time For Plastic Surgery

Just the thought of summer activities can get many people thinking about plastic surgery procedures such as tummy tucks, liposuction, and breast augmentations, and while there is no ‘wrong’ time to enhance your appearance, there are several factors that make fall and winter the optimal time to undergo cosmetic surgery.

Are you thinking about refreshing your appearance? Here are just a few reasons why you should consider booking your plastic surgery appointment this winter.

1. There are no summer distractions. Summer brings with it many temptations, be it the sunny weather, barbeque invitations, or weekends at the beach, so it can be difficult to stay indoors and focus on your recovery. However, during winter, you can be less active and spend more time indoors, without missing out on too much!

2. You won’t be as exposed to harmful UV rays. During the plastic surgery recovery period, prolonged exposure to the sun can delay healing. However, because wintertime brings shorter daylight hours and colder temperatures, you’ll be able to limit your time outside and protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

3. The cold weather is ideal for covering up. Winter clothes are less restricting than a summer wardrobe, and they provide ample coverage. This means that you’ll be able to protect your delicate skin while concealing any areas of redness or bruising. Best of all: your skin will be in great shape when the warm weather comes around.


Show Off Your Perfect Summer Body

Contrary to popular opinion, winter is the perfect time to address anybody or cosmetic concerns you have during the summer. Why? Though there are some procedures that offer immediate results, for most surgeries, it can take up to 6 months to see the final results.

For example:

  • It can take several weeks for breast implants to settle into their correct position after a breast augmentation surgery.
  • A body contouring procedure (liposuction or tummy tuck) can result in residual swelling and incision scars that could take a few months to completely fade and heal.
  • Certain skin rejuvenation treatments (Botox and Juvederm) require you to stay out of the sun for a few weeks as your skin will be ultra-sensitive to UV rays as it heals.

Once the sun starts shining and summer is in full swing, you shouldn’t have to wait to show off your incredible results. By scheduling your plastic surgery procedure during the winter, you can ensure that your body has healed well enough to safely enjoy the activities and fun of summertime.
