Holidays are a time for relaxation, fun, and spending quality time with loved ones, but did you know that they are also the best time for surgery? The timing of your surgery is a significant factor to consider when deciding to undergo an invasive procedure. By scheduling your surgery for a holiday period, you can take advantage of the increased availability of doctors and hospitals and other benefits. Holidays can be an ideal time for surgery for several reasons:
1. Holiday Time Off
People tend to slow down during the holidays and take more time off. This makes it easier to recover from an invasive procedure. In addition, many people have scheduled time off from work because of the holidays. Take advantage of the company time off and save on your PTO and vacation days!
2. You’ll Have Extra Support
Holidays are when friends and family come together to spend quality time with each other. When you are recovering from surgery, having the support of your loved ones can be extremely helpful. While recovering, nothing is as essential as having your loved ones around you. They can help you prepare meals, walk you around, clean up, and help you feel better about your recovery. They also can help to reduce the stress you might feel about recovery, which can make you feel better about the recovery process.
3. You Can Recover Discreetly
If you undergo surgery on holiday, you don’t have to worry about being seen in public. Not as many people are out and about and you have the benefit of bulky winter sweaters to hide your bandaging from both strangers and your loved ones visiting from out of town. You can go about your daily routine without worrying that someone might notice that you are recovering from an invasive procedure.
4. Perfect Time to Stay Indoors
The winter months tend to get a little colder, even in Florida, so you are probably already planning on staying indoors to curl up on the couch and watch a holiday movie. This is the perfect thing to do while you recover since you should limit your activities, especially during the first couple of weeks.
5. Prepare for Summer Weather
Complete recovery from cosmetic surgery can take several months. Having surgery during the holidays will give your body plenty of time to get back in shape for bikini season when you can show off the results of your surgery. The swelling should reduce significantly and your scars won’t be as prominent by summertime.
Schedule a Consultation
If you have been considering plastic surgery, now is the perfect time to schedule a consultation with Dr. Prysi. He performs a variety of procedures for the face, breasts, and body to help you achieve your cosmetic goals.
