Which Plastic Surgery Treatments Are Best for Winter?

Snowflakes and hot cocoa, holiday parties and extra time with family and friends… there’s a lot to love about the winter. There’s one great perk of winter that may not be on your radar yet, but that definitely should be. Winter is prime time for many plastic surgeries. Which procedures are best for winter? Find out below.

One of the “Breast” Surgeries for Winter

If you’re thinking about breast surgery (breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, etc.), winter is a great time. Not only will your new breasts be ready for bikini season, you can use winter’s chilly weather to make recovery more pleasant.

After breast augmentation you’ll need to wear a surgical bra for several weeks. This bra can be difficult to hide under clothing in the summer, but in the winter, it’s a breeze. You’re already wearing layers, so your surgical garments won’t leave you hot and uncomfortable.

You’ll also have the added benefit of extra layers to camouflage your breasts as they heal. It can take a few months for them to settle to their natural position and by covering up, no one needs to know you’ve had surgery.

Get breast surgery this winter and reveal a sexy, new you come spring.

Start the New Year with a New Face

Turn back the clock this winter with a facelift. This surgery can easily take 8-10 years off of your appearance. If you’re thinking about a facelift, winter is definitely the best time. Not that you can’t get great results year round (you can), but in the winter, recovery is much easier. With a facelift in the winter you can ring in the New Year with a younger looking face. You’ll still look like you, only the you from a decade ago.

After a facelift you’ll need to stay out of the sun for a period of time. This gives you a chance to heal. During healing scars are especially sensitive to the sun. Too much sun too soon can lead to scars that are permanently more visible. In the winter we naturally spend more time indoors, making it much easier to recover properly. Winter hats and scarves are also beneficial tools in hiding surgical bruising and incisions while you heal.

Other Winter Plastic Surgery Ideas

Breast surgeries and facelifts are two of our biggest winter-time recommendations, but you’ll find that many procedures are better in the winter. Liposuction, hair transplantation, laser skin resurfacing, arm lift, thigh lift, tummy tuck, and blepharoplasty are all great options for winter. Less time in the sun makes recovery easier for facial surgeries and the extra layers of winter clothing makes it easier to hide surgical garments after body surgeries.

If you’ve got plastic surgery on your to-do list, consider getting it done this winter. Call today and schedule your consultation at the New Orleans Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery.
