The holidays are the most wonderful time of the year, and while they may be the most fun, they can also be the busiest. They are all about vacation time where you can take a break, enjoy the festivities leading up to the New Year celebrations, and enjoy some overdue time with family and friends.
The holiday season is a time for school vacations, time off work, family gatherings, and an opportunity to get freshened-up for office holiday parties. New Year’s resolutions are often made to eat healthier, exercise more, and be your best self. It is also one of the best times of the year to undergo plastic surgery procedures, like face, body, and breast surgical enhancements.
Many patients take advantage of extended holiday breaks to squeeze in a plastic surgery appointment with Dr. Venkata Erella and his team at Aspira Plastic Surgery. Here are a few reasons why the holidays are ideas for plastic surgery.
Time off and Availability of Family to Assist With Your Recovery
The holiday season is the perfect time to undergo plastic surgery and get yourself ready for the summer swimsuit season. During the holidays, you typically get to take some time off work, which gives you enough time to heal and recover from your surgery. Allowing yourself 2—3 weeks of recovery time is key to obtaining ideal and long-lasting results. During this time, you will need to avoid heavy workloads, which means you also get to spend more family time watching your favorite holiday movies!
Speaking of family time, having family around during your recovery from plastic surgery means you’ll have lots of help close at hand to assist you and pamper you during your recovery.
Many companies shut down around the holidays and let employees take vacation time. Not only does this give them some downtime away from work, but it is also the perfect amount of time for recovery from plastic surgery.
Recovery Time Indoors Is Easier When It’s Cold Outside
Being indoors for your surgery recovery phase is made more comfortable and safer by the cooler holiday season. Since plastic surgery can be invasive and demanding on the body, optimal results are achieved by staying indoors.
Furthermore, the compression garments you need to wear after certain body contouring surgeries are a lot more comfortable in the colder winter months. Hats and scarves can easily cover some of the visible signs of healing facial surgery. Large, cozy sweaters can conceal the temporary swelling of a breast augmentation or tummy tuck, whereas the tank tops, shorts, and sundresses of the other seasons can be less forgiving.
