Why Spring is the Perfect Time For Plastic Surgery By Michael A. Devlin, MD on April 06, 2015

Every season has its benefits when it comes to plastic surgery.

In the Winter, you can wear bulky clothes and spend lots of time indoors.

In the Summer, many people go on vacation, so if you want to keep your procedure private you can do that easily.

The Fall  may be more comfortable with the milder weather.

But now as we are days into Spring, let’s talk about the benefits of getting a procedure done now!

First of all, the weather is still cool enough in Arkansas that you can still wear bulkier clothing to conceal your incisions (and for comfort) without getting overheated. Spring tends to have cool, rainy weather, so it’s a perfect excuse to stay inside and not miss out on anything.

If you have kids, they are still in school during the spring, so you won’t need to have extra help with the kids all day during your recovery time. If you are a college student, you can use this time to study and do online classes while sitting at home recovering.  And of course, your results will be visible in time for summer and bathing suit season.

The timing of surgery in Spring also allows you to lose the extra weight you might have put on during the holiday season. Some surgical procedures like liposuction or breast reductions require that you be as close to your ideal weight as possible. Additionally, having a procedure in Spring means you will have the body you want by the summer is here.  Imagine walking along the beach, laying out by the pool or enjoying the Arkansas lakes all with your new body?

Also, you may have received or are in the process of receiving a tax return.  What better way to spend that refund than and new and improved body.  You deserve it. 

Spring is a time of rejuvenation. People are becoming more active, the flowers are blooming, and everyone is preparing for summer. Part of that preparation for you can be looking your best in time for summer, and taking advantage of spring’s weather  to get the procedure you have been waiting for.

You may be wondering, which procedures are we talking about here? Here are the  main four:

  1. Breast Augmentation
  2. Tummy Tucks
  3. Liposuction
  4. Facelift/RestoreLift

While these four procedures do not require much downtime(time away from work or activites) It may take several weeks, or in the case of liposuction, several months to see the final results. You will need to allow for time for yourself to heal.  Also, keep in mind, that scars do take a few months to fade.  Sunlight and tanning can affect your scars overall appearance so Dr. Devlin will recommend that you stay out of the sun while healing.

If you are dreading the upcoming summer season because you can’t bear the thought of ‘bearing” some skin, give us a call! We can help you design a plastic surgery plan that will take you into swimsuit season and beyond with the confidence you desire!
