When considering plastic surgery, one of the factors you will want to consider is when the right time for surgery will be for you. Each of our Colorado patients is different and will be influenced by different personal factors when choosing the best season for their surgery, but here we discuss some common considerations for scheduling surgery throughout the year.
Summer Plastic Surgery
Summer may be a great time for you to schedule surgery if this is the season when you have vacation available for recovery. However, you should be prepared to enjoy your recovery time in the air conditioning. Too much time in the heat and sun can exacerbate swelling and prevent surgical scars from fading as quickly.
Many patients find that non-invasive procedures such as BOTOX® or dermal fillers are good for summertime touchups without extended downtime from surgery.
Fall Plastic Surgery
During the fall, children have returned to school and temperatures cool. For many patients, this means that childcare is less of an issue during recovering and more concealing clothing is in fashion. Surgery in the fall also means you will be finished with your initial recovery and looking your best by the holiday season.
Winter Plastic Surgery
Cold weather months are ideal for many patients because work may be slower, allowing for vacation time for recovery and bulky sweaters can conceal any initial swelling or bruising. Time out of the sun usually isn’t a problem, as most of us want to spend the winter snuggled up inside anyway.
Spring Plastic Surgery
Spring is the time of year when nature refreshes itself. For many patients, spring is the perfect time to rejuvenate their appearances also. With summer just around the corner, it’s a good time refresh your look before the weather heats up and clothes trend toward more revealing. Spring holidays can allow plenty of time for recovery and children are still in school, which alleviates childcare concerns.
