Top 5 Reasons to Schedule a February/March Cosmetic Procedure
It’s no secret men and women undergoing liposuction, breast reduction or implant procedures want to be healed and ready for the beach by summer. Additionally, the timing of cosmetic surgeries can play a big part in a successful outcome. “That’s why the end of the winter season is perhaps the best time to schedule cosmetic procedures,” notes Dawn Cover, surgical recovery product specialist and president of Nouvelle Inc., a leading provider of post-surgical compression wear. According to Cover, February and March have consistently remained popular months for scheduling cosmetic procedures and mommy makeovers. Here’s why:
A certain amount of time is needed before swelling subsides following most cosmetic procedures. Hot and humid weather can lengthen the time it takes to reduce post-surgical swelling. February and March mark the time of year when temperatures and humidity levels are the lowest, resulting in quicker recovery.
Between the extra clothing worn to hide surgical sites and compression garments that must be worn day and night, it can get pretty hot. Higher humidity levels can make recovery almost unbearable. Scheduling surgery during a time when humidity is low and temperatures are cool make it easier to comfortably and discreetly recover from procedures while wearing winter clothing layers and scarves.
3. Timing prior to summer
Planning a February/March procedure gives patients plenty of time to recover before the more active spring and summer seasons.
4. No conflict with family and holiday schedules
Lots of folks do not like to have surgery during the hectic holiday season, making a mid-winter procedure difficult to work in. You will need lots of help and support from family and friends and scheduling a surgery when time is in short order can be frustrating and stressful for everyone. Planning surgery when the holiday rush has subsided in February and March is a great way to minimize stress.
5. You’ve fallen short of New Year resolution goals
Unfortunately, many people who planned to make positive body changes in the New Year find that by February they have either given up, or their efforts did not get them where they wanted to be in time for summer. Planning a cosmetic procedure can be a perfect way to bolster confidence and meet healthy goals established earlier in the season.
“We’ve carefully planned our production schedule to accommodate plastic surgeons and distributors over the next couple of months,” said Cover. “One of our most popular products for the season is the compression set, which accommodates healing of single or multiple cosmetic procedures such as tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), liposuction, liposculpture and more.” Each set includes:
1st Healing Stage Garment: Worn immediately post-op and up to six weeks following surgery. Generally, garments used during this period are designed for ultimate ease-of-use with maximum compression levels, convenient zippers and safe closures.
2nd Healing Stage Garment: Phased in at four to six weeks after surgery. Garments worn at this stage use slightly less-constrictive fabric and no zippers. Each pull-on design is lightweight, easy to wear, and designed to enhance the smooth lines of your newly transformed physique.
Nouvelle designs and manufactures post-surgical compression wear, body shaping garments, and scar care products for men and women. Custom garments are designed to speed healing following breast augmentation, breast implant removals, breast lift, breast reduction, and buttock implants. Based in Virginia Beach, VA, the company offers its products for distribution throughout the U.S.A. and abroad. With a strict adherence to time-honored sewing traditions not typically available in today’s mass-production-focused market, Nouvelle’s creations are only available through private medical practices, select surgical supply vendors, and its Virginia Beach store. Distinguishing characteristics of the compression wear line include:
*Careful attention is paid to every conceivable way fabric touches sensitive skin post surgery.
*Flat, durable, consistent stitching does not aggravate incisions.
*Zippers and hook and eye closures are carefully placed so they never come in contact with healing skin.
*Not a single design uses wires or stays.
*Fabric is soft, yet durable enough for long-term use and multiple washes.
*Safe fabrics are made in the U.S.A. and free of formaldehyde and latex.
