We honestly can’t think of a better way to spend a gloomy week or two of winter than treating yourself to that plastic surgery or laser skin procedure you’ve always wanted. While we perform highly successful surgeries and skin treatments year-round, certain treatments lend themselves to the winter months for a variety of simple reasons.
Here’s a look at some of the most popular treatments we perform during the winter months, and why:
Kybella and Neck Lifts
Kybella®, the world’s first and only injectable for submental fat, can cause up to a week of swelling. This side effect is actually a good thing because it means your treatment is working. A neck lift involves more downtime and recovery because it’s surgery, but two words sum up why these treatments make sense in the winter months—turtlenecks and scarves!
Laser skin rejuvenation
Any laser skin treatment, including laser hair removal, calls for strict sun avoidance to reduce your risk of side effects and maintain the benefits of treatment. We safely perform laser skin treatments all year long, but our clients love the ease of winter laser treatments because it’s so much easier to stay out of the sun this time of year. Plus, getting your treatments in the winter allows you plenty of time to achieve optimal results in time for summer.
Breast augmentation and breast lifts
Cozy winter wardrobes make for easy cover-up after surgery. Plus, winter clothing affords the added benefit of forgetfulness. Out of sight, out of mind: Your new breasts will be covered up by winter clothing for months, giving everyone around you time to forget what your old breasts used to look like!
Facelifts and brow lifts
Sun avoidance is also critical for any surgery on the face to ensure proper healing, making winter an ideal time to undergo your surgery. Factor in your winter vacation time, and you’ve got a strategic blend of indoor UV protection and privacy to recover in peace.
