Winter is the Season for Plastic Surgery

Winter is the season for plastic surgery!

Have you been considering plastic surgery? Has it been on your bucket list for months or even years but you just haven’t made it happen? If you’ve been waiting for a sign, this is it: Now is the time!

Here are four reasons why…

Winter is the Season for Plastic Surgery


Limited Sun Exposure

If you happen to reside in our home state of Indiana or any other northern state for that matter, you are unlikely to experience a whole lot of sun exposure in the winter. Why is this an advantage for plastic surgery in the winter? The reason is twofold. Sun exposure can actually darken scar lines, hindering the whole purpose of the surgery. Also, the heat of the sun can exacerbate any potential swelling during the recovery time. A wintertime surgery makes it easy to avoid too much sun exposure.

Quicker Recovery Time

This is no guarantee, but the possibility is real! As mentioned, swelling is a potential side effect of surgery. Heat can cause further inflammation. But cooler weather could have the opposite effect! It could reduce swelling thus speeding up recovery time. In addition, winter often involves more downtime (more on this in our next point) because of vacation days or harsh weather keeping you at home. The extra rest can only benefit your recovery!

Extra Recovery Time

Many people have the advantage of extra vacation time during the winter and holiday months. But even if that is not you, a winter surgery allows for more time before summer rolls around. You’ll beat the heat, avoid the sun exposure, and be able to fully recover before hitting the beach. Also, in the winter you can wear bulkier and more comfortable clothing while you recover. Hats and scarves can both protect and conceal surgery marks until they are healed and the beautiful results are ready to shine.

Beat the Rush

Spring is the season of new beginnings, which is why it often becomes the busiest season for Dr. Chadwell. By planning ahead, you may find more scheduling options. Beat the spring crowd by scheduling your facial plastic surgery during the winter. You could be all healed up and ready to enjoy springtime weather before most people have even gotten their surgery scheduled.
