Winter is absolutely the best time of year to get plastic surgery for a number of reasons. First, the post-operative period for most surgeries includes a short “awkward period”. For instance, immediately following a breast augmentation, your breasts will definitely be high and hard for approximately 2 to 3 months until they have time to settle. Winter clothes are natural camouflage. Also, you need to avoid the sun after procedures such as eyelid lifts, face lifts, or rhinoplasty for a few months. Much easier to do in the Winter. Swelling following liposuction is also much less significant.
