Why Winter Is the Right Time to Think About Your Summer Body

Body Contouring Harrison

Given that winter only officially arrived a few weeks ago, it may seem too early to start worrying about your summer body. However, whether you are considering cosmetic surgery to enhance your figure or you want to give diet and exercise a chance to improve your contours, waiting until spring may be too late to achieve your goals. In this blog, esteemed plastic surgeon Dr. Joshua Greenwald explains why the ideal time to start fulfilling your summer ambitions is right now.

The Benefits of Having Cosmetic Surgery in Winter

The main reason the team at Greenwald Plastic Surgery encourages you to have plastic surgery sooner than you might have expected, is the recovery period. Although patients typically feel well enough to return to work within a week or two, the bruising and swelling lingers for significantly longer. It can be months before your complete results appear, so if you want to be ready for a June beach trip, plan accordingly.

Winter is also a good time to recover. Here in New York, the weather is so cold that many people adjust their social calendars and stay indoors. When you do go out, you can bundle up in bulky clothes, which easily conceals your body and any lingering bruising so that no one knows you are recovering from surgery.

Another factor is scheduling. As one of New York’s most popular and talented surgeons, Dr. Greenwald is in high demand. It is better to come in early to get a surgery scheduled rather than procrastinate and find out the only availability is not as immediate as you may wish.

Cosmetic Procedures to Improve Your Body

Some of the surgeries that Dr. Greenwald’s patients request most frequently ahead of the summer include:

  • Liposuction to reduce unwanted, stubborn pockets of fat that have not gone away, even with a healthy lifestyle
  • Tummy tuck to remove loose skin around the belly and reconnect the abdominal muscles for a firmer midsection
  • Breast augmentation to enhance the bust size for appealing curves
  • Brazilian Butt Lift to add volume to the buttocks using excess fat from the patient’s own body
  • Arm lift to remove dangling skin on the upper arm for improved arm contours

Dr. Greenwald can combine and add other procedures to your surgical plan for a more complete transformation.
