Why December is the Perfect Time for Surgery Recovery
Many people who are thinking of getting a cosmetic surgery ask us when the best time is to have work done. The winter months are generally the most popular time to for surgery clinics, so you may want to book a consultation with your local plastic surgeon soon. There are many reasons people prefer the winter months for their cosmetic surgery. Learn why December is the perfect time to go through the surgery recovery process in today’s Pearl Recovery Retreat and Wellness blog.
Many people are hesitant to undergo the surgery recovery process for procedures like breast augmentation or a tummy tuck because it takes time to recover. There is no real way to get around the time commitment, so finding a time where you can easily get away from work is ideal. For this reason, many people choose December as many people take vacation time during the holidays. If you are going to spend time taking it easy indoors, the cold winter months are ideal for surgery recovery. In addition, once you are able to go outside and return to your normal routine wearing layers of clothing helps to hide any post-surgery garments, dressings, and healing scars. This layering is completely normal in the winter months, and even in warmer locations like Los Angeles, no one will think twice if you don a coat or scarf in an attempt to hide your surgery recovery.
Having your procedure in the winter will allow you to fully heal by the time spring and summer roll around. Many people have busy schedules in the warmer months and can find it difficult to take time off for surgery recovery. In addition, the warmer months tend to lead to less clothing – making it the ideal time to be fully recovered from your procedure.
The sun’s rays are very damaging to skin, especially when your skin is trying to mend during surgery recovery. Too much exposure to sunlight can damage your surgical wounds and result in longer recovery times or poor results. In the winter, the sun is much less intense and daylight hours are much shorter. These factors, in combination with people spending more time indoors during the winter, make the cold months ideal for your surgery recovery.
