5 Reasons Winter Is The Best Time For Plastic Surgery

As we all relax by the fire and think happy thoughts of spring and summer, why not add one more happy thought to the mix? Consider a newly toned bikini body ready to show off come this summer. Winter is the perfect time to make those wishes come true. Consider these 5 reasons winter is the best time for plastic surgery.

You Have The Time To Recoverbeautiful young woman face over gray background and snow

Since plastic surgery procedures like a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, facelift, and liposuction can come with swelling, bruising, an incision or two, and unsightly sutures afterward, the winter wardrobe lends itself to hiding all that. Bulky sweaters, leggings, and scarves are the perfect companions after plastic surgery. Often it can take 3 to 6 months to completely recover and see the final results.

No one will know you had work done until you want them to. Then the reveal will be awesome!

Perfect Time To Be Alone

Not only are there few parties in the dead of winter, most people hibernate during this time and plan few social events. Recuperating after a procedure like a blepharoplasty will be easy, and no one will suspect. Enjoy this time. Remember sitting by the fire? Now you can catch up on your reading or binge watch all the movies you missed. When spring arrives, you can throw off the blanket from your sofa, and head out and enjoy all the warm weather festivities.

Think Party Thoughts

If you have been dreaming about making minor or major surgical improvements for a while, consider all the festivities coming your way this spring and summer.

Warm weather is the prime time for looking your best at upcoming weddings, anniversary parties, school reunions, vacations, and pretty much any excuse for a party.

Contact Dr. Wendy Gottlieb in Reston, VA now to allow time for your consultation and to schedule your surgery date. Waiting until closer to spring can make it harder to be fully healed in time for those summer activities.

Sun Exposure Is Not A Problem

With most plastic surgery, staying out of the sun is a prerequisite after the procedure. Exposure to sunlight can affect any scars or the area of your incision. Having a procedure during the dark days of winter makes this a non-existent problem.

When you do go out on a sunny day and as the weather gets warmer, remember to always wear sunscreen.

Cooler Temps

Many plastic surgery procedures necessitate wearing surgical undergarments. During the warmer months this can be unbearable, whereas during cooler months they are less uncomfortable and may even keep you warmer.
