The Benefits of Surgery at Christmas

‘Tis the season for gift-giving, holiday parties and… plastic surgery? It turns out the winter season is often the best time for individuals to undergo plastic surgery procedures they have been wanting. With many benefits to scheduling procedures over the winter holiday, now may be the perfect time to begin thinking about the best plastic surgery choices for you.

Take Advantage of the Break

Many people have time off during the holidays, with some enjoying a full two-week break before heading back to work and other activities. This is the perfect time to cosy up at home and recovery from a plastic surgery procedure. With time off to spare, you can invest in the cosmetic procedure you have been wanting without having to use extra vacation time or take time without pay to allow for surgery and recovery time.

 

Rely on Family Members

The holidays are a time to celebrate with family and friends, which may mean more people are around your house this time of year. Extra family members can help look after you during your recovery process, so you can take the time to fully heal without feeling like you are missing out on seeing others. Whether it is kids off school or a parent coming to visit for the season, these extra caretakers can be a welcome addition to your home.

 

Cold Air Conducive to Healing

The colder temperatures during the holidays can also be conducive to healing, since cooler air can lead to less bruising and swelling. In addition, the chilly weather will make it easier for you to stay inside without worry that you are missing all the fun. In addition, the cooler air means bundling up if you do head outdoors, which makes it much easier to hide bandages and other signs of surgery without looking suspicious.

 

Start the New Year Right!

Depending on the procedure you choose, you may find you are completely healed in time to ring in the New Year. If you are planning an event for the holidays, talk to your surgeon about realistic recovery periods to ensure you plan enough time for healing before you make your first public appearance. It may require scheduling surgery fairly soon to ensure you are looking your best to ring in 2015.
