Ah, winter. Andy Williams once sang in that famous 1963 Christmas song that “It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” And while that may be debatable to some, winter is certainly an opportune time to treat yourself to a facial rejuvenation, facelift, or reconstructive surgery procedure. Why? Good question. Below are the three reasons why this December or January may be the ideal time to take the cosmetic surgery plunge.
Cosmetic surgery makes a great gift
Cosmetic surgery is one gift that will last long after the tree has wilted and the stockings have been put away, because not only does it last several months (or even years) but it will also give the gift of self-confidence – and that’s priceless.
Couples may exchange the gift of a beautifying procedure, mothers and daughters may get Botox together, or you may just give yourself that little lift you’ve been wanting for a while. Go for it.
The cold weather makes winter an ideal time to stay home and recuperate
Let’s face it, the cold winter months are a perfect excuse to cuddle up by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate and finally finish that novel. Why not use that down time for recovery, too? You might have already asked for the time off. Use it. Plus, you now have a ready excuse for nosy friends and neighbors who may pester you about why you’ve recently become a homebody. “It’s too cold outside!” you can tell them.
Winter clothing makes it easier to hide post-surgery redness or swelling
If you absolutely MUST go out to run errands, no one will think twice about you bundling up. Coats, hats, and scarves aren’t just standard winter attire – they’re perfect ways to cover up that post-surgery bandage, scar, or puffiness.
