Winter is a great time for cosmetic surgery.
Winter is here and baby it’s cold outside! This Winter has been uncharacteristically cold and snowy for the Tri-Cities. I’ve been here almost 9 years and I’ve never seen anything like it. But there is good news! Winter is a great time to get cosmetic surgery procedures done!
Winter clothing aka the big cover up.
Some of my patients want to tell everyone they know about their cosmetic surgery procedures. Other patients like to be discreet and keep it quiet. For the first week or two after surgery patients can easily stay covered up and hide swelling, bruising, bandages, stitches, drains and/or compression garments. The loose baggy clothing of winter is ideal for patients who want to keep their lips sealed.
Has anybody seen the sun?
Keeping incision sites out of the sun is important, therefore, less sun is better for wound healing. Just a short amount of time in the sun can cause a pink incision to become darker.
No one is going to ask you to throw on a bikini-yet
After surgery it can take several weeks for most of the swelling from surgery to subside. When bikini season finally does roll around, ta-da, you will be ready to peel off the layers and reveal the new you!
