Spring is a time for regeneration, rejuvenation, and renewal. Plants and animals stir to life as nature breaks through the cold, grey months of winter and enters a new stage of life and energy. Spring is a popular time for plastic surgery procedures that help prepare for bathing suit season. It provides an excellent time for an update to your look and your life for several reasons.
Body contouring and liposuction are recommended in conjunction with an excellent diet and exercise program. With the warmer days of spring moving in, it becomes easier not only to get outdoors and move around, but to find the motivation necessary to stick to a fitness plan. The warmer, pleasant weather makes it easier to get outside. Although the spring time sun is invigorating, it’s milder than the direct rays of summer, making it less of a problem when dealing with healing skin. Patients should be mindful of their sun exposure and take advantage of Spring’s mild temperatures to wear protective coverings and remember to use sunscreen when appropriate.
Although the major holidays of Christmas and New Years have passed, there are still several major holidays in Spring that allow for time away from work or school activities. With class reunions, weddings, vacations, and other activities approaching in summer, Spring provides a lull in the schedule, a perfect time for squeezing in procedures like rhinoplasty, Mommy Makeovers, and tummy tucks. The light scarves and wide-brimmed hats that are often popular in Spring make excellent cover for bruising and swelling in the first few days following a procedure.
The winter months are often bitingly cold, and summers are hot and the sun is strong. Spring provides a cooler, more temperate time. It’s still possible to hide healing scars, bruising, and swelling with seasonally appropriate clothing, but the heat and direct sun of summer has not yet become a problem. Spring may be the ideal time to prepare your body for summer and swimsuit season. Call O’Neill Plastic Surgery today, to discuss your goals and options for plastic surgery this spring.
