3 reasons why winter is a great for a change

1 Recovery is easier.

In the winter months it’s time to take stock and look back on the year and ahead to the future - if you are going to be taking it easy for a few days, the cold, winter months make it easier to stay in bed. The winter months also make recovery easier because the season’s fashion is best for hiding any post-surgery garments, dressings, swelling or scars. Winter is especially preferred when having facial surgery or laser treatment because the skin is better protected due to lessened risk for sun exposure.

2 Time to focus on your health.

Cosmetic surgery is the perfect way to kick-off your New Year’s resolution. While summer is filled with social activities, life tends to slow down from January through March, giving people a chance to focus on their health, with diet and exercise. The same rules apply for cosmetic surgery. Adopting a healthy lifestyle is the absolute best way to make your results last.

3. The Big Reveal.

For many patients there is often a specific event or timeframe at which they aim to make their big reveal. For some it is their wedding, or for others it’s spring. If you plan is to show up in the spring or summer months of 2017 looking refreshed and fabulous, now is the perfect time for that facelift, eyelid surgery, or botox, because there is no better gift than hearing how incredible you look. If your goal is a flat tummy, thinner thighs, or a voluptuous bosom in time for swimsuit season, having your surgery in the winter will give you plenty of time for swelling to dissolve and your new healthy habits to take shape.
