Wintertime is cold. You bundle up and hide inside to stay warm. Sun exposure is minimal and the days are short. People tend to be less physically active and avoid going outside as much as possible. Though winter can be dreary, there is one benefit to the season: it’s the perfect time to undergo some cosmetic procedures.
Here are the best cosmetic procedures to get during the wintertime.
Facelift and brow lift
Undergoing a facelift or a brow lift requires patients to take approximately two to three weeks off of work to recover. This can be tough to commit to during your industry’s busy season. For many companies, however, business slows down during the winter. There are also more holidays at this time of year, making it the perfect season for a longer recovery.
What’s more, bulky scarves, earmuffs, and hats can cover up much of the evidence left behind of a recent facelift or brow lift.
If you’ve been wanting to improve the appearance of your neck, now is the perfect time to get a neck lift. In order to ensure an optimal and quick recovery, wearing loose fitting button-up shirts is essential. This helps make sure that you don’t touch your neck when you’re getting dressed and undressed.
It’s much easier to wear loosing-fitting clothes in the wintertime. People will just naturally assume you’re doing so to keep warm, whereas such a shirt in the summer could be a big red flag when you’re surrounded by people wearing bikinis and tank tops.
Plus, swelling, bruising, and other lasting evidence from your recent neck lift can be easily covered up by scarves, turtlenecks, and coats until you can begin wearing normal clothes again.
Any breast surgery, whether it’s a breast lift, breast reduction, or breast augmentation, is best saved for the winter months. Not only will you need to take a couple of days off to recover, but you can easily hide immediate changes, bruising, and swelling under turtlenecks, big sweaters, and baggy jackets during the cold winter months.
By the time the temperature rises and it’s time to wear t-shirts again, all signs of your surgery will be long gone and people won’t notice a drastic change in your breasts from one day to the next, which is ideal if you want to keep your cosmetic surgery a secret.
Eyelid surgery can reduce excess eyelid skin and fat pockets and make your face look more youthful. However, it’s imperative to protect your eyes from the sun’s rays during your recovery. For this reason, getting eyelid surgery in the winter is a great idea. The days are shorter and the sun barely makes an appearance.
Skin rejuvenation treatments
Skin rejuvenation treatments like chemical peels, laser treatments, and microdermabrasion should be performed in the winter as well. Tanned skin doesn’t respond as well to laser treatments, and skin must also be protected from the sun’s rays in order to for you to heal quickly and get the best results from the treatments.
Body contouring treatments
Getting body contouring treatments, such as a body lift, liposuction, or a tummy tuck, can help you get the ideal body shape that you’ve always dreamed of. However, recovering from these types of surgeries can take a few weeks. During the healing process, you may be swollen, have bruising, and have to wear compression garments.
No one will notice, however, if you get these treatments during the wintertime. The evidence will be easily covered up by baggy sweaters, jackets, and pants.
