Benefits of Having Plastic Surgery in the Winter

You’ve decided that you’re ready to undergo plastic surgery, but now the question you need to consider is, “When should I schedule my surgery?” An ideal time to undergo plastic surgery is the winter. Whether you’re interested in breast augmentation or body contouring with liposuction, the winter weather makes for the perfect time to schedule your procedure. Plus, with the start of the New Year, why not put your best self forward and feel your absolute best?

Read on to learn more about the benefits of planning your plastic surgery procedure during the winter.

Procedures For Wintertime

Winter and spring offer the perfect opportunity to plan any plastic surgery procedure, but we have found procedures that have proven to show the best success for patients.


Liposuction aims to remove stubborn, unwanted fat that is unresponsive to a healthy lifestyle. This procedure can be used nearly anywhere on the body, including the face, arms, thighs, back, hips, and buttocks.

Breast Augmentation

A breast augmentation will enhance the size, shape, and projection of small breasts using silicone or saline-based implants.

Tummy Tuck

For patients that would like liposuction to remove additional fat from the abdomen but have excess skin, and/or loose muscles, a tummy tuck procedure will help to tone and tighten the stomach.

Get a Jump Start on Your Summer Body

Results from plastic surgery do not happen overnight. Recovery can take anywhere from four to six weeks. Most patients experience some residual swelling for at least six months, depending on the procedure. Anyone who wants to get into better shape for the summer should plan to undergo their procedure in the winter or early spring. This will allow for swelling and bruising to subside before showing off your gorgeous results in your favorite swimsuit.

A More Comfortable Recovery

Trying to rest when the temperature outside is unbearably hot can make a recovery a drag. Staying comfortable and relaxed out of the harsh sun will keep you comfortable while you recover from your procedure. Winter also offers a convenient reason to bundle up and stay indoors for an easier, more relaxing recovery.

Lose the Holiday Weight

The holidays are full of delicious indulgences, family meals, treats, and sitting around with your favorite people. While wonderful in the moment, these festivities can cause unwanted weight to build up, especially around the midsection. It’s important to get back on track with your nutrition after the holidays; liposuction can help remove stubborn areas and assist you in getting back into shape for the new year.

Stay Covered with Extra Clothing

Wintertime is all about layers to stay warm and protect the skin from the elements. Many plastic surgery patients comment that bruising, swelling, and incisions are easier to conceal this time of the year due to it being socially acceptable to wear comfy clothes all day. Patients can discreetly recover from their surgery without revealing their final results until the weather has officially warmed up.
