Why The Season You Get Your Procedure Matters
- Posted on: Nov 29 2019
Many people consider cosmetic procedures without also considering recovery time. The majority of invasive procedures require a recovery period of a week, most taking longer.
The time of year that a patient chooses to schedule their procedure can make a huge difference for the recovery experience. It is important that you do everything you can to recuperate and let your body heal after surgery. This is best done at a time of year when the kids are still in school!
You want to debut your body and show off your new confidence next summer, not sitting at home recovering. It is recommended that you plan to have your procedure during the winter/spring months.
Confidence boosting procedures that contour the body, like liposuction, include abdominal binders or restrictive wrappings that are necessary for assisting recovery. These can be a hassle or even uncomfortable on a hot summer day.
For the majority of people, it makes sense to get an invasive procedure done in the winter/spring to recover comfortably at a time of year when everything is covered, and the temperatures are cooler.
Laser resurfacing treatments can require patients to keep skin out of the sun for a minimum of six weeks!
Exposing your body to excessive heat post-op can exacerbate prolonged swelling and bleeding. Unfortunately, it is not recommended that you recuperate poolside, even if you plan on being in the shade.
It is important that you contemplate your recovery time when you are considering your procedure, and plan to provide yourself with the best environment to heal in.
