If you’ve been considering plastic surgery, now is the perfect time to schedule a consultation! During the winter months, you’re probably already planning to bundle up on the couch, so it makes recovery easier and gets your body ready for the warmer months.
1. Recover Before Swimsuit Season
Recovery from popular cosmetic surgeries like breast augmentation or tummy tuck can take about 3 months. It often takes even longer for the scars to fade. Plan to schedule your surgical procedure by February or March so that you have plenty of time to recover and heal before warmer weather and swimsuit season.
2. Time to Relax
The summer is the time to enjoy time outdoors and plan fun get-aways. The cold winter weather makes that a bit more difficult which means it’s a great time to stay indoors and rest after plastic surgery. You also don’t want to miss out on all the fun summer activities with your family and friends.
3. Save on PTO
With Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s all wrapped in the span of a couple months, you might get a lot more paid time off (PTO) than any other time in the year. Rather than using your vacation days for surgery recovery, use the PTO during the winter months! You also won’t be missing out on as much work around this time since most business tend to slow down before the turn of the new year.
4. Easily Conceal Swelling
Hiding bandages and swelling is much easier when you’re wrapped up in cozy sweaters and layers. You don’t want to miss out on the summer fun because you are worried about the bandages or swelling showing while wearing summer clothes.
5. Avoid Sun Exposure
It is recommended that you avoid direct sun exposure after surgery since the direct heat can increase swelling and inflammation. Sun exposure can also cause your scars to darken or make hyperpigmentation permanent if you get a sunburn on the fresh scar. During the cloudy and cold winter months, you won’t have to worry about the risk of sun exposure during recovery.
6. Fresh Start for the New Year
The new year is the perfect chance for a fresh start, especially if you’ve been considering plastic surgery for some time. Cosmetic surgery often gives people a huge confidence boost so that they can thoroughly enjoy the activities they love and also feel more confident to try new things!
