As with many things in life, timing is critical for success. When discussing breast augmentation surgery, timing can mean the difference between you thoroughly enjoying your new look and missing some activities because you are at home to recuperating from your breast augmentation.
When we are discussing timing, we are not talking about the time in your life that you should consider augmentation procedures. Instead, we are talking about what time of the year would be best for you to have breast augmentation. When making this decision, it’s important to think about the surgical procedure itself as well as what happens in the days and weeks after surgery.
Full Recovery Takes Time
Advances in technology and plastic surgery techniques mean that patients who have breast augmentation surgery with Dr. J. Timothy Katzen can recover faster now than at any other time in history. Most patients can get back to some of their normal activities within 24 hours after their breast augmentation.
However, it is important to note that there is a difference between the 24-hour recovery and full recovery. After 24 hours, it’s likely that you’re going to be able to walk around your home and do simple tasks. However, you’re not going to be completely recovered from the surgery for a couple of weeks.
Swimwear and Swimming
After breast augmentation surgery, we recommend that you avoid submerging yourself in water for at least four to six weeks. This is what you would commonly expect a doctor to recommend after any surgery. This means avoiding the ocean, hot tub, or lake. After the six weeks, you will be able to swim and splash around to your heart’s content. There’s just that relatively short period where you will need to exercise more caution.
Wintertime Is the Best Time for Breast Augmentation
We mention all of these factors to substantiate that the winter months, preferably December or January, are going to be the best time for you to schedule your breast augmentation procedure. Typically, winter is when work slows down in the majority of sectors around the country. It is expected that people are going to take extended vacations during the winter months. There are many holidays during the months that make it easier to get time off.
If you have your procedure in the winter, you will be completely healed and ready for the summer. You’ll be able to hit the beach and show off your newly improved form for the world to see.
