Cosmetic surgery in autumn, why is it better?

Cosmetic surgery in autumn, why is it better?

Although each case is different and each person’s life has different routines, possibilities and availabilities, we cannot deny that we like aesthetic surgery in autumn. This season of the year is characterized by the return to school for the little ones, but it is also a time of preparation for the achievement of new goals and personal objectives. And maybe on your list of “things I want to do before I’m 40” is a touch-up or surgery on some part of your body.

Whether you do or not, I think it’s important for you to know the reasons why fall is the best time of the year to touch up those parts of your body that you don’t like or need to take care of for health reasons.

3 reasons why you’ll want to undergo cosmetic surgery in the fall.

Some studies point out that in the months of September to December the number of aesthetic and plastic surgeries and aesthetic medicine treatments increase by more than half. If we look at some characteristics of this time of the year, we realize why this is so. In short, autumn-winter is a cold time of the year where sweaters, coats, scarves and coats reign, and where social events are punctual.

Better planning of the surgery you want.

Haste is a bad advisor and even more so if it is for cosmetic or plastic surgery. The decision to make any change in the body through surgery should be made responsibly. First of all, it is important to choose well the plastic surgery specialist who will perform the operation, make sure that he/she is qualified to do it and that everything is in order. Secondly, I recommend that if necessary, you write down all the doubts or questions you have about the surgery you want to undergo. What are your expectations? What are your fears? Knowing what surgery you need and when you would like to be ready to return to your routine is very important for the surgeon to plan the procedure.

For all these reasons, having cosmetic surgery in autumn is a good idea. This time of the year is calmer, we are more focused on ourselves and we have the time and energy to know what we need.

Less sun and less water

Sun and water (both pool and beach) are the protagonists of the summer and although it is possible to have a cosmetic surgery or an aesthetic treatment at this time of the year, it is recommended to wait a little longer and do it from September onwards. All this has an entirely reasonable explanation.

Sun exposure is totally counterproductive for the recovery of any operation, due to the negative effects of solar radiation on scars. If you ever had an important wound as a child, you will remember that you were always told not to get the sun on the wound . The fact is that the sun hinders the healing and recovery of a wound, in addition to the fact that it can cause stains and pigmentation at that level. That is why it is recommended that if you undergo cosmetic or plastic surgery during this time of the year, you should not expose yourself to the sun without control.

The case of water, both beach and pool, is similar. Most aesthetic or plastic postoperative procedures have as a contraindication prolonged bathing (to avoid infections and delays in healing) and this is more difficult to comply with in the summer season.

So, here’s another reason why it’s better to have cosmetic surgery in the fall.

Better recovery and healing.

Not exposing yourself to the sun or spending the day at the pool or at the beach facilitates the healing and postoperative recovery of an intervention of these characteristics. But the temperature factor should not be neglected. It may seem silly, but it is not. The low or mild temperatures of autumn and winter allow us to rest better at night and this is essential for recovery from surgery. In addition, the cool environment reduces the possibility of infections and reduces the appearance of sweat on the skin. The cool environment will be even more appreciated in those interventions where we have to wear pressotherapy garments in the postoperative period.

All these reasons make autumn a very good time of the year to undergo cosmetic surgery, plastic surgery or any aesthetic treatment. In any case, each case is unique and should be treated with professionalism, so go to your surgeon of confidence, expose your case so he can decide when it is more or less advisable to perform a cosmetic or plastic surgery.
