We know how busy things can get, especially in the summer. Juggling activities and vacations can make it difficult to set aside time just for you. But summer is almost over, the kids are back in school, fall is around the corner….and now is the perfect opportunity to take some time for yourself!
Fall can actually be a great time to undergo just about any type of cosmetic surgery, for a number of reasons. Recovery can be easier in the fall – the weather is cooler, and it’s likely that you’ll be mainly indoors and looking to take it a little easier. Additionally, once you do start moving around and going outside again, thicker clothes and layers can help hide any post-surgery scars, dressings, or garments.
Whether you’re undergoing a surgical procedure or non-invasive treatments like chemical peels, minimizing exposure to heat and sun can help the recovery process. Summer heat can exacerbate post-surgical swelling and the sun can slow healing time, so scheduling your procedures in cooler months can be to your benefit.
Additionally, most people are settled in to their post-summer routines, which can make it a little easier to plan for consultations, surgery, and post-op visits. As an extra bonus, scheduling your treatments in September or October gives you ample recovery time so you can show off the new you – and your improved confidence – during the holiday season!
