Advantages of Getting Plastic Surgery in the Spring

Scheduling is one of the most significant considerations patients have when scheduling their plastic surgery procedure.

While there can be benefits to each time of year, spring offers an excellent opportunity to get work done before showing off in the summer. Today, Dr. Josh Waltzman looks at why many of his patients prefer getting their plastic surgery done in the spring.


One plus is that the temperatures can remain cool enough to wear some bulkier clothing during the spring, offering protection during the healing phase from procedures like breast augmentation or breast lift.

You can also spend some extra time inside recovering during the spring before the summer sun beckons you outside in earnest.


Many people welcome spring several pounds heavier than they’d like to be. Wearing extra clothing in the winter may keep your physique at the back of your mind. As the temperatures start to warm up and you gradually shed those layers, spring offers an opportunity to lose extra weight before summer.

Many popular warm-weather procedures, such as CoolSculpting and liposuction, can offer the best results if you’re close to your goal weight and need a little extra push to help you over the finish line. Spring gives you more motivation to lose excess weight before getting your desired procedures.
