Why Winter is a Great Time to Have Plastic Surgery

Have you been tossing around the idea of plastic surgery for a while? Now might be the best time to schedule a consultation with Vancouver cosmetic surgeon Eric Pugash to explore your options. The winter months are a prime opportunity to undergo the procedure of your choice and completely recover before the weather heats up and people start to head outdoors. Let’s look at a few reasons why winter is a good time to have plastic surgery.

You deserve it.

The winter holidays are a popular time to exchange gifts with loved ones. You’ve likely spent a lot of time, money and effort purchasing gifts for friends and family, and donating to charitable causes close to your heart. But did you include yourself on your gift list?

Many plastic surgery Vancouver patients of Dr. Pugash have noted how much their quality of life improved after having plastic surgery. You are entitled to experience the same benefits of plastic surgery, and you deserve to feel better about yourself and your appearance. Now that you’ve finished taking care of everyone else’s needs and wants, it’s time to treat yourself.

The holidays can be stressful.

The holiday season can be busy and stressful for you and your family. It’s not uncommon for signs of exhaustion and aging to manifest themselves along your face or body. As the holidays wind down, make sure that you are paying attention to your own needs and allowing yourself some extra pampering. Cosmetic surgery can not only rejuvenate your appearance, making you look younger, leaner and more attractive, but also rejuvenate your spirit and help you mentally gear up for the New Year.

It is easier to recover during the winter.

Another important reason why winter is the perfect time to undergo a cosmetic surgery procedure involves the recovery. As you recover from your breast enhancement, facial rejuvenation or body sculpting procedure, you will need to take it easy. You should rest at home and refrain from any vigorous activity for one to three weeks, until Dr. Pugash advises that you can return to your normal routine.

Staying in bed and resting is easier when the weather is cold and there aren’t temptations to spend time outside. Also, cold weather layers are better for covering up surgical bandages and scarring when you do leave the house.  If you had surgery in the summer, it would be difficult to conceal bandages under tank tops or shorts.

You will be motivated to take care of yourself.

The short days and colder temperatures can tempt you to slack off on healthy habits, including your diet and exercise routine. Recovering from plastic surgery requires that you take good care of yourself by eating well-balanced meals and getting plenty of rest. And, after you’ve recovered from surgery, you will want to exercise regularly to maximize your results.
