Why Spring is the season for cosmetic surgery

Spring cosmetic surgery timing

As the weather warms and the flowers bloom, Spring is often seen as a time for new beginnings. This is why it’s also the season for cosmetic surgery, and there are several reasons why this is the perfect time to plan your procedure.

Thoughts turn to summer bodies

You have survived the cold winter months and, for the first time, your thoughts are turning to getting beach body ready, so it’s no surprise that Spring is a popular time to book your body contouring procedure, whether it’s liposuction, a thigh lift, male chest reduction or tummy tuck. These need to be timed as soon as possible if you want to reveal your new shape when summer rolls around as you are advised to avoid vigorous workouts for between four and six weeks, depending on the procedure, and it can take a couple of months for most of the immediate, noticeable healing to subside. You should also avoid getting incisions wet while still in the early stages of healing.

Seasonal skin changes

As your body finally emerges from hibernation after a cold, harsh winter, your skin will often be dehydrated with poor skin tone and texture. This frequently makes us more conscious of looking tired and old, and naturally, our thoughts turn to revitalisation during the Spring. Facial rejuvenation surgery, such as a facelift or blepharoplasty, can help reset the ageing clock and make you look as dynamic and youthful as you feel.

The springtime advantage

Moderate temperatures mean that this is the perfect time to heal, resulting in a smoother and more comfortable recovery process. Hotter temperatures often contribute to increased swelling, and in a procedure such as rhinoplasty, even slight swelling of the delicate facial tissues can affect the result.

Spring’s longer daylight hours and increased sunshine also work as a mood boost, and good mental well-being is essential to coping with the post-surgery blues. Yet, you can minimise sun exposure to protect your scarring as it heals, which is more challenging during summer.

Stop summer sweating

Summer’s heat and humidity can be challenging for those that suffer from excessive sweating which is why Spring is also a great time to plan your miraDry treatment. miraDry is the only FDA-cleared treatment that can dramatically reduce underarm sweat and odour – it’s clinically proven to reduce sweat on average by 82% and reduce odour by 89%
