Wondering what plastic surgery treatments are best to get in the winter? Looking your best has never been easier. Our collection of plastic surgery treatments perfect for wintertime is sure to help you realize that those layers don’t have to hide your greatest features, but might just help your body recover from surgery in the comfort of your holiday home. And why not gift yourself for the holidays with a look you’ve always wanted? Here is a look at some of the most popular plastic surgeries for winter:

Facial Surgeries: Neck Lift, Face Lift, Brow Lift

If you want to ensure your recovery from a facelift, for example, is as comfortable as it can be, then chilly winter months are just what the doctor ordered. The bruises and swells, as well as wearing drains and a compression garment, have a chance of making you feel every bit of heat. Not to mention being that much hotter under those layers. On top of that, being exposed to the sun right after surgery is highly discouraged, because UV radiation impedes the healing process.

Of course, a pleasant recovery is possible even during the summer, however, winter simplifies the process. Choosing to have surgery during the cool months has several benefits. It helps with hiding the necessary garments with layers of clothes, you’re home more often, plus the fresh air will help ease discomfort. Whether you want a facelift, neck or brow lift, augmentations, or sometimes much-needed rhinoplasty and ear surgery, winter is a good time to get it done. You’ll be feeling great in spring and by summer, you’ll be ready to smile proudly at the sun.

Breast Surgeries

Breast augmentation takes a couple of weeks to heal, and for other types of breast treatments, the recovery can take a week or longer than a month, depending on the type. Having to deal with swelling and lingering pain is unpleasant but having to deal with the heat on top of that could become too much for comfort. There are ways to have a good recovery during the summer months, but the winter lends itself to a cool healing experience. It’s easier and you don’t have to pump your AC all the way down. But most importantly, you can hide the compression garment or surgical bra that much better.

Body Surgeries

Liposuction is at the top of the most common plastic surgery procedures. Not far behind is abdominoplasty or the tummy tuck. Both require just a few weeks of recovery to return to your normal routine. But even those few weeks can become unbearable if you have to be in the sun. Of course, the AC is there to help, but during the winter you might prefer a balmy room temperature that allows you to stay relaxed and follow the doctor’s advice. Similar points can be made for other types of body treatments, like arm or thigh lifts. If you want to cover your scars completely until they heal, this is easier during cold months.

One more reason for a winter make-over

The holiday season is easier to plan around, you have more time and a good excuse to be off work, so if you don’t want anyone knowing, or simply prefer to recover at home as much as possible, winter is the best time for you. Besides, what better gift to yourself than a body that helps you radiate beauty and exude confidence?
