4 Tips for Planning a Spring Surgery

Plastic surgery takes planning. After all, you’ll need time to heal, and that often means asking time off work or asking someone to help out with the kids. You also want to look your best during holidays and vacations, which means planning surgery in time to heal for major life events. So when is the best time to schedule plastic surgery?

4 Tips for Planning Plastic Surgery

  1. woman holding teaLook at your weather app. Cooler weather lets you wear bigger, more concealing clothing, which is great if you want to keep your decision to have plastic surgery on the down-low. Wearing layers also means better protection from the sun, which can discolor scars, especially when they’re fresh.
  2. Check your calendar. If you don’t have kids, you may want to take advantage of long weekends like President’s Day. Federal holidays will help you limit the amount of vacation time you’ll need for your recovery. If you’re a parent, you may want to plan your surgery when the kids are in school, unless your spouse is available to play single parent during spring break.
  3. See what’s coming up. Are you attending a graduation ceremony in May? Book your consultation now. You should be healed enough to return to non strenuous activities in 4-7 days, but breast augmentations, tummy tucks, and other major surgeries require 3-6 weeks of healing before patients are able to lift heavy items, like that mini fridge your kid doesn’t want anymore.
  4. Start small. If you’ve been considering a breast augmentation for a while, it’s time to treat yourself! But if you’re not sure whether a tummy tuck, facelift, or other surgical procedure is right for you, you may want to start with something small like injectible fillers or SculpSure.
