    It’s Surgery Season: Why Winter is the best time for Plastic Surgery

    It’s Surgery Season: Why Winter is the best time for Plastic Surgery

    While plastic surgery is a personal choice that can be made at any time, there are specific benefits to opting for procedures in cooler weather.In this episode, we speak to Dr. Dare Ajibade from Jamachi Plastic Surgery (https://jamachi.com/), about the advantages of scheduling plastic surgeries during the winter season. Advantages of Cold Weather Plastic Surgeries:* Less Sun Exposure: One key advantage is the reduced sun exposure during fall and winter, minimizing the risk of hyperpigmentation and skin damage. Dr. Ajibade emphasizes the importance of concealing incisions and surgery scars from the sun for optimal healing.* Experience Less Discomfort: Winter's cooler temperatures bring additional perks, such as experiencing less discomfort during recovery due to decreased sweating. This is particularly beneficial for surgical wound healing, as sweat can irritate incisions and elevate the risk of infection. Furthermore, the cooler temperatures also make it easier to tolerate compression garments, essential for various body contouring procedures. * Clothing to help conceal: Winter attire, including loose-fitting sweaters, jackets, and scarves, provides the perfect cover for any post-surgery or compression garments. This allows individuals to recover discreetly without drawing attention to the surgical process.* The Big Spring/Summer Reveal: Many people have social events, weddings, or reunions in the summer and want to look their best. Having surgery in the fall allows ample time for recovery and healing before the next busy social season.Just remember, whether it's snow or sunshine, deciding on surgery should be all about you, your health, and what feels right for you. And recovery times can vary, so speaking to a trusted surgeon, and following their advice is key for the best results.
