Winter is possibly the best time for cosmetic surgery. Many patients opt for a facelift at Little Rock Cosmetic Surgery at this time of year. Those of you who have planned ahead, good thinking! Those of you debating upon when to have your facelift or any other procedure this month, let me tell you why now is a good time.
There are cosmetic and physical reasons for choosing the winter months for surgery:
You wear more clothing in the winter, so if you are undergoing a body procedure such as a tummy tuck or liposuction, it’s easier to hide incisions or compression garments as you heal.
Holiday vacation time from work or school makes for a good time for initial recovery, particularly for a facelift.
It is much easier to heal in cool weather. You will be less uncomfortable in general and be more comfortable in compression garments if they are necessary for your surgery.
Face it, winter is a time of hibernation. I have heard that some people enjoy a little “staycation,” time at home for healing and reflection. And the staff and I, at Little Rock Cosmetic Surgery are easily available and accessible if you have questions if you stay at home during your vacation time. Travel and surgery do not go together for a myriad of reasons.
One of the most common reasons patients give me for choosing winter for cosmetic surgery is that they want to face the new year with confidence, a fresh start!
If you recall, I had written some sage advice for undergoing summer surgery. It may seem odd, but depending upon your lifestyle, elective procedures are indeed seasonal. The reasons you may not want a facelift in July, are the reasons you may elect to have one in December. So if you are considering a rejuvenating fresh start for the new year, give us a call at Little Rock Cosmetic Surgery Center to set up your consultation.
