Let’s face it, there’s actually not a bad time to get that plastic surgery you’ve been dreaming of. In the summer, you’re expected to take time off for vacation and other trips, and it’s easier to heal at home, safe from prying eyes. Autumn provides cooler weather that is often more comfortable as you recuperate. Winter allows that same comfort, and more chances to stay home while the weather outside is frightful. And, wouldn’t you know, spring has some amazing qualities and opportunities for surgery, too.
Some of the advantages of getting plastic surgery during the spring include:
Springtime weather is often still cool enough to let you layer up in baggy clothes. Plus, the 90’s are back in style, so the looser fit of clothes can help hide wraps and bandages. The weather can often be all over the place in spring, so the rain and snow can give you a perfect reason why you’re staying home instead of out with friends or coworkers.
Don’t Put It Off
Staying inside in an air conditioned home is one of the best ways you can allow yourself the best chance to heal after an invasive procedure like liposuction. You might be tempted to recuperate poolside or in the backyard in the shade, but please don’t. The heat and sun can actually lead to extended swelling or even bleeding after your invasive procedure. It’s better that you heal as quickly and safely as possible, so cooler temperatures will be best for you.
If you do decide to have surgery during the summer, listen to your surgeon and plan on staying inside around the clock for at least a week, but maybe even longer. Body contouring procedures like liposuction will require that you wear abdominal binders to assist you in your recovery, which may just add bulk and annoyance on a hot day. Summertime is also not ideal for facial procedures, as exposure to sunlight can lead to scarring.
