Since many of our Valparaiso Indiana plastic surgery patients choose summer as the best time for a cosmetic procedure (due to the availability of accumulated vacation time to recover), it may surprise you to learn that November & December are quite popular months as well. Here are some of the reasons many of our NW Indiana cosmetic surgery patients choose November and December for their procedures:
- While you may feel well enough to return to work (and many of our patients are surprised how quickly they do!), you may have concerns about any visible surgical incisions. Cold weather is a perfect foil for them, since you simply wear more clothing during the colder months! Slacks, jackets and scarves, all of which conveniently hide healing surgical scars, are worn more often during colder months, allowing you to conceal any dressings or healing scars.
- The holiday season offers most working people some additional paid days from work, giving you some extra days for recovery.
- Patients who have procedures performed during the colder winter months are delighted to find that, come spring and summer, they’re completely healed and incisions are faded, allowing them to feel comfortable exposing more skin in swimwear, shorts, sleeveless tops, etc.
- One of the most common reasons that many people have their procedures in November and December? As a holiday gift to themselves!
