Reasons Why Winter is the Ideal Season to Schedule Cosmetic Surgery

At the Gabay & Gottlieb Cosmetic Surgery Center in Philadelphia, our plastic surgeons tend to see a wave of new clients during the winter. Perhaps it’s the idea of the New Year – a new look that will wow friends and family come spring and summer. Some people may be changing the career or the lifestyle they lead by opting for a breast augmentation procedure at our Philadelphia center. Regardless, we find that winter is one of our busiest seasons, and there are a few good reasons for this:

Winter Is All About Covering Up

In the weeks directly following surgery, it’s only natural to want to cover up and conceal what you’ve done until you’re ready to shine. While you’re recovering from any sutures, swellings, or bruisings on your skin, you’ll want to wear garments or dressings that will aid and speed up the healing process. Luckily for you, no one will bat an eyelid if you’re bundled up in your happiest and warmest wear.

Sweaters, jeans, and dress pants can be ideal for concealing any body contouring during the winter months. Your favorite scarf or hat can do wonders making a fashion statement while maintaining a modicum of modesty and discretion.

Relaxing During the Holidays

Inevitably, any cosmetic surgery that you receive will require some days of downtime. When do you ever get as many holidays and opportunities to vacation as you do during the holiday season? And you don’t have to fret about staying home, as the temperatures drop and your friends start to spend the weekends indoors.

Minimizing Your Suntime

Much as we all love sunlight and warmth, all that UV showering isn’t ideal as your skin is healing from a surgical procedure. We recommend that our patients do their best to minimize their hours under the sun. During a Philadelphia winter, we’re lucky if the sun stays up past 4:30 PM.

A New Year, An All-New You!

Who doesn’t want to enhance their appearance and look all the more youthful on January 1st?

Scheduling your cosmetic surgery during the winter can make this a reality for you. Call us here at Gabay & Gottlieb Cosmetic Surgery Center at 215-501-7565, and we’ll discuss the all-new you!
