Suppose you’ve ever considered getting a little work done. Now is the perfect time to start your journey. Many patients are worried about finding the ideal time of year to schedule their plastic surgery. So we’ll let you in on a bit of secret -it’s now! Fall is the perfect time of year for plastic surgery for many reasons. Today we can explore a few with you.
It’s easier to conceal as you heal.
Fall is the perfect time for plastic surgery because of the changes in fashion. However, it’s typical to spend the first part of your recovery at home. When you return to work or your regular responsibilities, you will likely still be experiencing some bruising and swelling. It’s common with any surgery for there to be some swelling and bruising. However, fall fashion makes it easier to dress in fashionable and roomy fabrics that help you conceal your healing process when you return to work. You can still look stylish and feel comfortable as your body heals. Long sweaters and soft cardigans not only feel nice against your healing skin, but they can help to conceal excess stretching, swelling, or bruising that is so common after surgery.
Whether you are interested in breast enhancement, a tummy tuck, lipo, or Brazilian Butt Lift surgeries, to name a few, these all come with a lengthy healing time where although the results can be life-changing, prolonged swelling is expected.
You’ll have greater flexibility with appointments.
Many patients wait until January to schedule plastic surgeries. This happens for a variety of reasons. Many women want to start the new year off with a bang, taking a big step toward living their best lives. Others are waiting for the holidays to pass when life slows down a bit. Whatever the reason, January schedules are often packed for plastic surgeons. Unfortunately, this can mean you don’t get your optimal plan. By booking in the fall, you can choose the perfect time for you and ensure you’ll have plenty of time to heal and schedule follow-up visits before the January rush. By the time everyone else is getting started on their journey, you’ll be mostly recovered and ready for travel!
You’ll have plenty of time to recover before swimsuit season.
Often patients wait until January to make sure there is plenty of time to recover before swimsuit season. However, because of this, it’s become one of the most challenging times of the year to schedule plastic surgery, and although you will be past the initial healing phase from surgery by summer. However, most plastic surgeries can take up to a year before the healing process is complete. Therefore, the more months you can put between your surgery and your swimsuit, the better the results will be. Booking your surgery in the fall gives you plenty of room to have flexibility with your schedule and will provide you with even better results before the summer fashion season is here.
Immediate recovery will be over before the holidays
Another valid concern with scheduling plastic surgery is that no one wants to be recovering during the holidays. This is another reason early fall is the perfect time for plastic surgeries. The immediate swelling and recovery can take days or weeks, depending on the extent of the surgery and how your body responds. Scheduling those weeks early in the year can get them behind you and much closer to your final product. Think about all those holiday photos and parties. Wouldn’t you rather have the surgery behind you before they get here? This also frees you up to travel in the winter so you can be out seeing the world instead of cooped up during recovery.
