To maximize your results from cosmetic surgery it’s a good idea to consider the season you’re currently in. That’s because the right season will make it so much easier to allow you an appropriate period for safe recovery, conceal swelling and scarring, and provide the best alibi for those who will get a little too inquisitive about your personal life.
Spring is a great time for cosmetic surgery and it’s a good thing, because it’s at the forefront of many people’s minds. This is when we get back to work. We hit the gym so we look good and are “ready” for summer. Let’s face it: there are a lot of things happening in summertime, and many of them involve less clothing. Heading to the beach for vacation, summer parties and BBQs, and wedding season can all mean wanting to look your best (and showing a little more skin than normal).
If you prefer to enjoy the holidays and winter sports without worrying about surgery or recovery time, surgery in the spring is perfect. It also gives you a chance to diet and exercise to lose the extra holiday weight (which is ideal for procedures like breast reduction or liposuction).
Some of the best advantages to surgery in spring have to do with what came before, and what’s coming up. Those winter pastries and bad decisions have started to fall away with extra work at the gym and a commitment to healthier eating. Kids are still in school, so you won’t need as much help taking care of them while you recover. There are a few holidays and long weekends that can allow you more time to rest away from the office, too. And, it’s a great time to prepare for summer, while still being able to stay indoors or wear bulkier clothing that can help cover up compression bandages and other post-surgery accoutrements. Breast surgery, body contouring, and facial surgery are all great options to consider before the weather heats up.
