Be Summer-Ready! The Best Plastic Surgery Procedures to Book This Winter

Submitted by Dr. Fasching on Mon 01/23/2017 - 18:01

Winter is not only the season for holiday festivities. It’s also the perfect time for makeovers, which is why many plastic surgeons are the busiest this time of year.

It’s part of human nature to stay warm in the winter, and that makes it beneficial to anyone who will undergo different surgical procedures. Not only will the layers of clothes keep the body cozy, but will also help conceal bandages, scars, bruises, compression garments, and many other signs of surgery. Additionally, surgical wounds heal faster when they’re less exposed to the sun’s harmful UV rays, and winter offers the perfect weather condition for skin to heal properly.

These benefits explain why winter is the best season for plastic surgery. If you want to be summer-ready, now is the time to schedule a procedure. Here are nine of the most popularly requested procedures that you may want to book as early as now:

  1. Breast Enhancement Surgeries

While you can have breast surgeries any time of the year, breast augmentation, breast reduction, and breast lift are best saved for the cold months. Baggy clothes, loose sweaters, and thick winter coats hide bruises, swelling, and any immediate changes to your breasts. By the time winter is on it’s way out, people may not spot a difference in your breasts, because they would never remember what they looked like before the surgery.

  1. Facial Surgeries

Like any other surgeries, you’ll need some time off to recover from facial surgeries, such as a facelift. Slow business days and long weekends make winter the best time to get this surgery. Aside from lengthened time off, the frigid weather means your skin will be less exposed to the sun, which is essential for proper recovery. Additionally, you can hide redness and swelling due to face, eyelid and nose surgeries with scarves, hats and other winter accessories.

  1. Body-Contouring Surgeries

Just like the aforementioned surgeries, liposuction, tummy tuck and other body-contouring surgeries are best scheduled in the winter. Why? It’s easy to conceal bandages and scars with heavy coats and loose sweaters. Plus, nobody will notice the changes if you prefer to keep your surgery procedure private when you’re bundled up all winter.

  1. Mommy Makeover

If you plan to have a total body makeover, it’s best to have it in the winter. The advantage of a mommy makeover in the winter is you won’t be stressed about the need to drive your kids to soccer games, summer camps, and many other recreational activities. Plus, the colder temperatures of winter will make your recovery a cool and comfortable one.

Recovery plays a key role to any plastic surgery success. Therefore, if you want to heal from a liposuction or a breast reduction procedure comfortably, book the procedure in the winter. To know more about these plastic surgery procedures, book an appointment with Dr. Fasching today.
