When planning your upcoming plastic surgery, you want everything to be just right — down to the best time of year to schedule your procedure. While there is not a hard-and-fast rule dictating the best season for plastic surgery, there are a few reasons why the cooler winter months tend to be top choices.
Ask yourself these three questions to help you plan your plastic surgery timeline, whether you’re thinking about breast enhancement, a tummy tuck, a facelift or something else.
What’s Your Work and Childcare Schedule Like?
If your kids haven’t returned to school due to the pandemic, arrange for extra help at home while you recover from plastic surgery.After plastic surgery, you’ll need some free time to rest and recover. What time of year do you have the most time available to take off work? When do you have the most extra help taking care of your children?
Many people find that the winter months make it easy to take a little extra time off work after the holidays, and kids are usually in school this time of year.
When Do You Travel or Go on Vacation?
Most people plan their vacations and travel plans for the summer months, making the cooler fall and winter “off seasons” great times for plastic surgery.
These cooler seasons also generally make recovery a bit more comfortable since you can cozy up under a blanket and don’t have to worry about staying out of the sun or being too warm.
What Plastic Surgery Procedure Are You Considering?
The recovery time for a blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), for example, will be much shorter than a surgical procedure like breast augmentation, a facelift or a tummy tuck.
