Woman w/ sparklerThe holiday season might sound far away right now, but it won’t be long before Christmas carols and New Year’s Eve parties are back.

If you’re planning breast enhancement and want to see results just in time for these special occasions, start thinking about your breast augmentation timeline now.

Careful planning now could help you enjoy the breasts of your dreams when you ring in the new year.

Start Searching for Your Plastic Surgeon Now

The first major step to check off your list is to find the right plastic surgeon for your breast augmentation. Start doing your research now, then schedule a consultation or two to help you narrow down your search.

When searching for a breast enhancement plastic surgeon, look for qualifications like:

  • Board certification with the American Board of Plastic Surgery
  • Memberships to accredited medical associations, such as the American Society of Plastic Surgeons
  • Before and after photos indicating extensive experience with breast augmentation
  • Online reviews
  • Friendly, helpful staff and a clean, organized office

It’s never too soon to schedule a consultation with your plastic surgeon to start planning your procedure.

Work Recovery Time into Your Breast Augmentation Timeline

Although many women feel up to going back to work within 7 to 10 days after getting breast implants, don’t expect to see your final results just yet. It can take 3 to 6 months to see your full outcome from breast augmentation, so give yourself some wiggle room between your procedure date and your big New Year’s plans.
