Winter Time Plastic Surgery: Which Procedures Are Best?

plastic-surgery-winterWinter is prime time for plastic surgery and laser treatments. The cooler weather and abundance of indoor time makes it easier to recover from many procedures. If you want to look amazing next summer, winter is the time prepare. This winter, Dr. Waldorf can make your plastic surgery dreams a reality. Here are some procedures that are perfectly suited to the chilly weather:

Facelift

For an easier recovery, opt for a wintertime facelift. After a facelift, Dr. Waldorf advises that patients stay out of the sun for a period of time. New scars are sensitive to the sun and may become permanently more visible if sun exposure is not initially limited. More time indoors during the winter is great for your post-facelift healing. Holiday downtime may also give you a few available weeks to finally make a facelift a reality. Think you don’t have time to recover? Pair your facelift recovery with a holiday break and you just might.

Laser Treatments

Many laser treatments (including laser hair removal and laser skin resurfacing) target hyperpigmentation. This means that tan skin is a no-no. Staying out of the sun is easier in the winter when we spend more time indoors. The Waldorf Center offers treatments like Fraxel to treat minor to severe skin damage, such as age or sun spots and fine lines and wrinkles. Laser hair removal helps to remove unwanted hair by targeting the pigment of the hair follicle. Typically 4-6 treatments are recommended for best results and The Waldorf Center offers packages to bring the cost down for you. Treat those brown spots, say goodbye to unwanted hair, and enjoy beautiful, smooth skin in time for spring! Call The Waldorf Center for more information on these treatments.

Liposuction- Slim Down While You Bundle Up

If you’ve been thinking about liposuction, winter is the perfect time. Bulky winter clothing makes it easier to keep your surgery discreet (if that’s important to you) since bruising, swelling, compression garments, etc. are easily hidden under layers and jackets. Ask Dr. Waldorf if you are a good candidate for liposuction and start making your New Year’s resolution a reality even before the New Year!

Winter is a great time to treat sun damage since patients tend to stay out of the sun more. To ensure that your results look great come summer too, get in the habit of using sun protection.
