Plastic Surgery by Season: Why Winter is Best

Here’s why winter (mid-December thru March) is one of the best times to undergo that cosmetic surgery procedure you’ve been considering.

From facelifts, to breast augmentation, to tummy tucks and liposuction, winter’s chilly temperatures allow for bulkier clothing like sweaters, turtlenecks, hats and scarves to help conceal any possible swelling and bruising. While there is no right or wrong time to get that procedure you’ve always wanted, December through March has always been a popular time of year to undergo surgery. Why? Getting a sufficient amount of rest is essential to a safe and successful recovery process. Once the holiday craze subsides and things begin to slow down, there is no better time to put your social calendar aside to focus on yourself.

Doctors also recommend that patients avoid direct sunlight after any surgical procedure, so what better time to get a procedure than during those cold, winter months. Sounds like the perfect New Year’s resolution to us!
