Transform Yourself With Cosmetic Surgery This Winter
If you’re dreaming about having a toned body during the summer months, now is the time to consult with an experienced plastic surgeon. Learn more about the practical considerations that make winter the ideal time for cosmetic surgery and explore the most popular procedures this time of year.
Cold Weather Provides Natural Down Time
Most cosmetic surgeries include at least a few weeks of recovery for optimal healing. During the winter months, it’s easier to hunker down with your favorite Netflix series and let your body rest. As the temperature drops, we naturally want to stay inside more. When the day comes to rejoin the world outside your home, heavy clothing and multiple layers worn during the winter can conceal swelling, bandages, and other signs of surgery. With time off for winter holidays in December and January, it’s often easier to schedule an extended absence from work for your surgery and recovery period. From an emotional perspective, many patients follow the “new year, new you” mantra and decide to head into January with an amazing new look.
Ideal Winter Cosmetic Procedures
While all types of plastic surgery can be conducted in winter months, a few procedures are especially convenient this time of year.
- Facial surgery, such as facelifts, neck lifts, brow lifts, and eyelid surgery can be easily hidden with winter hats, scarves, and coats. These procedures require you to stay out of direct sunlight during recovery, which is easier to do when it’s cold outside.
- Procedures that require extensive recovery time, such as breast surgeries and abdominoplasty, are ideal for the cold months when social schedules are lighter, making people more likely to stay home. As a bonus, you’ll be ready to show off the results in your new swimsuit come summer.
- Procedures with a quick recovery time, such as dermal fillers and other non-surgical procedures, are great in the fall so you can look your best for holiday parties and other festive obligations.
