Spring is in the air, and that means open windows, cleaning sprees and… plastic surgery? Yes! Spring can be an excellent time to schedule plastic surgery, whether you’re looking to freshen up your appearance or want to fine-tune your results from a previous procedure.
Take a look at some of the benefits of getting plastic surgery in the spring, as well as some of the best procedures to opt for this time of year.
Why Get Plastic Surgery in the Spring?
Truthfully, you can have a successful plastic surgery experience any time of year, but there are perks and drawbacks to each season.
In the spring, most of us have our minds on fresh starts – we often clean our houses and tidy our yards during this transitional time of year. So it only makes sense that you might want to make some changes for yourself in the spring, whether that’s a quick dermal filler appointment or a facelift for more dramatic results.
Spring weather is also generally conducive to a comfortable and relaxing recovery, since it’s not too hot out yet, but it’s warm enough to open the windows for some fresh air or take a light walk around the block as you heal.
Lastly, many parents find it difficult to schedule anything for themselves during the summer months when their kids are home from school and the busy summer season full of family trips and activities begins. In the spring, you might find that you have a little more time for yourself, making this season ideal for plastic surgery.
The bottom line? There’s no right or wrong time of the year to schedule plastic surgery. Choose whatever works best for your schedule.
What Are the Best Plastic Surgery Procedures for Spring?
The best plastic surgery procedures for spring aren’t just all about your physique. Many people choose facial plastic surgery this time a year for a refreshed, youthful look.
- Rhinoplasty. A nose job, or rhinoplasty, can address a wide range of cosmetic and medical concerns, from asymmetry to a deviated septum. Your results will continue to develop over the next year after your rhinoplasty.
- Brow lift. Looking to brighten and freshen up your eye area? A brow lift can improve the look of a drooping brow and wrinkles and creases around your eyes. The recovery time after getting a brow lift is around 2 to 3 weeks, and your results will continue to develop over the next year.
- Facelift. A facelift can smooth and tighten sagging skin, drooping jowls, wrinkles and creases in the lower half of your face. If you’re looking for an overall refresh this spring, you might think about combining a facelift with a brow lift for more comprehensive results.
- Injectables. If you’re not quite ready or don’t need a surgical procedure, nonsurgical injectables could be the perfect spring touch-up treatment. Dermal fillers and BOTOX® are some of the most popular cosmetic treatments among both men and women.
