Each season holds unique benefits for you to consider plastic surgery. It is easy to cover your bandages and swelling with bulky sweaters in the cooler weather. Spring is an ideal time for enhancing your curves before summer. For many patients, summer means vacation time, making scheduling a downtime-intensive procedure easier. However, if we had to choose one season that is the best for major cosmetic surgery, we would probably choose fall.
If you are considering treating yourself to a cosmetic procedure as fall approaches, this is an excellent time to schedule your consultation with Dr. Jeannie MacDonald in Vancouver, BC. Doing so now will allow you to enjoy your new look by the new year. Whether you would like a tummy tuck, comprehensive Mommy Makeover, facelift, eyelid lift, or breast augmentation in Vancouver, BC, here are a few reasons why it’s practical to plan specific procedures during the colder seasons.
Why Is Fall Best for Cosmetic Procedures?
Fall brings with it sweater weather, the ideal time to hide those bandages! After a major cosmetic procedure, you may have bruising and bandaging for a few weeks. It can be challenging to hide bruising, swelling, and recovery garments under short shorts or tank tops during the summer. With the cooler temperatures in the fall, you can easily cover up until you’re fully recovered.
Cooler temps mean more time indoors and out of the sun. Sun exposure can cause your incisions to permanently darken, making it best to avoid the sun until your incisions are fully healed, something that’s easier to do during a season with more indoor time, like the fall.
What Cosmetic Procedures Are Popular During Fall?
Some of our favorite cosmetic procedures for fall include:
- Tummy Tuck—Now that swimsuit season is over, it’s time to toss that one-piece swimsuit and get your body ready for next summer with a tummy tuck. This procedure can remove excess skin and fat from your abdominal area, creating a tight, sculpted middle and a body that’s in tip-top shape before the spring and summer. The sooner you come in for the procedure, the sooner you’ll be recovered before the busy holiday season and in your best shape for the next bikini season.
- Breast Augmentation—With some holiday downtime ahead, give yourself a back-to-school gift and restore your breasts to a perkier, more youthful appearance with implants to add breast volume and enhance your breast shape. Cooler weather makes surgical bandaging more comfortable during your recovery, and the extra layers can help you hide these bandages and any swelling while you heal. Having breast augmentation in the fall means you’ll be ready to show off your new, perky profile come spring.
- Facelift—Fall is one of the best times to consider getting a facelift because, after your surgery, you’ll need to minimize your exposure to the sun while you heal since the sun’s UV rays can increase your chances of scarring. Opting for a facelift in the fall makes it is easier to stay out of the sun and be fully healed and ready to reveal your stunning new look in time for those holiday parties later this year.
- Eyelid Lift—Wake up and freshen your look with an eyelid lift in the fall since recovery is often easier when temperatures cool down and indoor activities are more common. The cooler seasons are often a good time for cosmetic blepharoplasty because most people are less active and hunker down for a few days while they recover. Choosing the fall means you won’t need to miss out on time spent on the golf course or hanging out at the beach with family and friends.
