Are you dreaming of getting a facelift, brow lift or nose job to look and feel better about yourself, but not sure when you'll find the opportunity to schedule your cosmetic surgery? The end of the year is often the busiest time at our Atlanta aesthetic surgical facility, so it's a smart idea to book your appointment now. Here are the key reasons why winter is the perfect time to get your cosmetic surgery.
1. It's easier to plan your recovery.
Many people are hesitant to commit to surgical procedures because they are constantly living on the go and believe they can't spare the downtime it takes to recover. However, if you are going to need to rest and take it easy for a week or so after cosmetic surgery, winter is the ideal time to do so, since people's schedules usually slow down toward the end of the year and there are fewer social activities like weddings and festivals.
Though your recovery time may prevent you from attending your Aunt Sally's annual holiday shindig, it gives you the perfect excuse to binge-watch every Hallmark holiday movie to your heart's content. Also, if you have built-in days off work around the holidays, it will be easier for you to take time away from the daily grind without feeling like it will take forever to catch up.
2. Baby, it's cold outside.
For many of us, one of the worst things about winter is that there are fewer sunny days. But even if you hate cold weather, the low temperatures can be your ally once you feel healed enough to go outside and mingle in public. For one thing, cold is one of the most effective ways to reduce swelling. For another, if you're self-conscious about bandages, bruises or stitches, you'll be wearing extra layers anyway, so it will be much easier to cover up. Finally, when the days are shorter, you'll find it's easier to avoid UV radiation, which can cause hyperpigmented scars and damage skin that may be particularly sensitive after getting cosmetic surgery.
3. It's your excuse for a "staycation."
If you're anything like most of us, you have a lot of stress in your life, especially around the holidays. Getting cosmetic surgery could create the ideal opportunity to fit in that long-deserved "me time" relaxing at home. Experts agree self-care is essential for better health, and recovering from a procedure like a facelift is your perfect excuse to slow down and clear your calendar. Get out your softest clothes, pile the couch with comfy pillows and get ready to pamper yourself while you heal from your procedure. The weather outside may be frightful, but your Netflix watch queue is oh so delightful.
4. Give yourself a holiday gift.
For many, the holidays are the most enjoyable part of the winter season. There are beautiful decorations, delightful food and drink, plenty of surprises and everyone is in a festive mood. It's also your chance to reward yourself for how hard you've worked all year long. Even if you're not expecting Santa to come down your chimney with the gift of a cosmetic surgery, there's no reason for you not to treat yourself. And, by scheduling your procedure now, you'll be fully healed and ready to welcome a new year on the right foot.
5. It will give you an attitude adjustment.
Many people struggle with the "winter blues." The days are shorter, the weather is dreary and the trees are bare. A mental boost may be exactly what you need to see you through the season on an uplifted note. By getting your plastic surgery now, your delight in the results every time you look in the mirror might give you the extra push you need to ride all the way into spring without succumbing to seasonal sadness.
6. You'll be ready to show off this spring and summer.
There's nothing quite like the pleasure of anticipation. If you book a cosmetic surgery in winter, you'll have the confidence of knowing you'll be fully recovered by the time warm weather starts to return to the Atlanta area. You will be 100 percent ready to welcome the sunshine and enjoy events like class reunions, family vacations, cookouts, concerts, outdoor sporting events and other spring and summer get-togethers to their fullest. Everyone will be sure to notice how much better you look, and that will give you greater self-confidence.
7. New year, new you!
Many of us look forward to the end of the year as a time to make a fresh start. Why not ring in 2019 with a brand-new, youthful appearance? Facial cosmetic surgery can make you look years younger and give you a healthy, refreshed look. Make it one of your New Year's resolutions to welcome 2019 and make it your best year yet by renewing the face you present to the world. You'll emerge from your recovery process rested and revitalized, and by scheduling your surgery at the end of the year, many of your friends and family will be none the wiser that you had any work done.
