When Should I Schedule My….?
While the only true “perfect time” for a procedure is when you feel most comfortable, fall seems to be a reliably popular choice. Patients often see Dr. Galante in fall for tummy tuck and liposuction for various reasons:
1. Sweater Weather Is Recovery Weather
As we head into the colder weather, you can put the bikinis away and get out the sweaters. This may seem like the opposite of what you’ll want after your procedure, but trust us when say that you’ll appreciate the downtime (and the warm outfits) while you recover. After tummy tuck and/or liposuction, Dr. Galante recommends patients wear a compression garment for at least 2 weeks, so the loose clothing options of fall will perfectly hide it.
2. Back to School, Back to You
The kids are back to school, and it’s time for you to get back to doing something for yourself. With the kids’ schedules full during the week, this leaves ample time for every pre- and post-op appointments. Plus, the quiet is a bonus when you’re recovering.
3. Healed by the Holidays
We can all agree that the holidays are the craziest time of the year, so why add to the stress by trying to find time for your recovery? Scheduling your tummy tuck and/or liposuction in September or October means you’ll be healed up before the holiday madness ensues.
