Though Newport Beach plastic surgeon Dr. Rob Kessler is responsible for creating beautiful cosmetic transformations all year round, there are a few reasons why the fall and winter months are a great time to undergo plastic surgery. If you are considering improving your appearance, the months of November, December and January might be the best time to schedule your procedure. Here’s why:

Adequate Time to Recover

What prevents many people from pursuing their desired plastic surgery procedure is lack of time to recover. However, when looking at the November and December calendar months, the vast majority of people take time off from work or school anyway. Taking a week or two of time off won’t draw questions from your coworkers or force you to explain that you actually took time off to have plastic surgery.

Clothing Layers Cover Bandages

Another advantage to having plastic surgery during the holiday season is that the cooler weather allows you to wear several layers of clothing, covering bandages and support garments. In the warmer months, it can be difficult to conceal evidence of plastic surgery, but this is not a concern during the months of November, December and January. It’s more comfortable to wear long sleeves or pants to cover healing scars and protect them from the sun.

Staying Indoors Is Appealing

Although Southern California is beautiful year-round, there is less temptation to go outdoors during the fall and winter months than the summer months. You can cozy up on the couch and watch holiday movies or binge-watch your favorite television series without feeling guilty that you’re missing the summer sunshine.

Think of Surgery as a Gift to Yourself

If you’ve been avoiding spending money on plastic surgery because you don’t want to splurge during the year, think of it as a holiday gift to yourself. Or, you could suggest that a loved one “gift” you the desired treatment, if they are feeling generous.

Look Great for the New Year

Depending on the specific surgery date and procedure performed, you may be able to undergo your desired cosmetic treatment and look great in time for the New Year. If you decide to wait until later in the winter, you should be fully recovered by the spring or summer!
