California residents can appreciate just how hot the dog days of summer can be, but there is an upside to the extreme heat.
The hottest days of summer can be a great time to schedule plastic surgery, since you’ll probably want to beat the heat and cool down indoors, anyway. Here are three plastic surgery procedures perfect for summer.
1. Breast Enhancement
For most people, the summer offers the most flexibility and time away from school, work and other routines that will likely kick back up in the fall. If you’ve been thinking about getting breast implants, a breast lift or a breast reduction, scheduling your procedure for the summer could help to ensure that you have enough time to rest, recover and see your results before your busy season revs back up.
It can take several months to see your final breast augmentation results.
2. Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid surgery is a popular plastic surgery procedure that many people choose to get for both cosmetic and medical reasons. Since you should only need about 5 to 7 days of recovery after eyelid surgery, fitting it in during the hottest days of summer might be an easy way to take a break from the heat for a week or so before getting back to your summer activities.
3. Tummy Tuck
It’s true that you will need to stay out of the sun while you recover from a tummy tuck since the sun’s UV rays can interfere with your body’s healing process and can make scarring worse. However, if you’re one to favor the A/C over the excruciating heat outside, planning your tummy tuck for this time of year can be advantageous.
