“When should I schedule my plastic surgery?” is a common question among patients who are seriously considering a plastic surgery procedure. The simple answer is often: schedule your surgery during the time of year that works best for you.
Summer may be a great time to undergo plastic surgery because you may have plenty of vacation time available from work for your recovery. It may also be an easy time to arrange for childcare with summer camps and trips to the grandparents.
Fall may be a better season for your surgery if you prefer your children to back in school and temperatures are cooler, allowing for more concealing clothing during your recovery.
Winter is a popular time for cosmetic procedures because bulky winter clothing allows you to recover without revealing swelling or bruising, and you may have extended vacations built into the calendar for recovery time over the holidays.
Some patients prefer Spring for plastic surgery for those very same reasons. Spring holidays can allow recovery time and the more revealing clothing of Summer is not yet in fashion.
Ultimately, scheduling your plastic surgery is a personal choice based on your lifestyle and your needs. There is no one “right time” for surgery, but there are several considerations to think about.
