February is the month that most people realize their New Year’s resolutions were not actually feasible, and begin to lose momentum in their dieting and exercise. But adding plastic surgery to your list of February must-do’s is one way to guarantee a difference in your body and confidence, the perfect solution to keep yourself from falling off the bandwagon! Now is the ideal time to get going on that cosmetic procedure. Why, you ask? Because investing in your appearance NOW will allow you to reap the benefits as swimsuit and shorts season arrive!

While many skin rejuvenation processes are minimally invasive, many of them work by stimulating the production of collagen, an organic process that produces results best seen a few months post-treatment. Other surgeries require a longer recovery period, and by choosing to begin this process now, you will be able to display your amazingly enhanced features right on time, rather than hiding in your house all summer, waiting for your incisions to heal.

Why is Winter the Best Time of Year to Get Plastic Surgery?

For many individuals, the time they consider how they will look in this year’s bikini is the moment they are trying it on right before they’re headed to the beach. This is how the vicious cycle begins: looking in the mirror, feeling dissatisfied or self-conscious and instantly resolving: “I really need to get going on those workouts!” But summer swiftly goes by with a few half-hearted efforts, and soon it’s sweater weather and holiday parties, a time that makes it all too easy to eat badly and hide it all under those cozy layers, until spring rolls around again and the whole cycle continues.  

The problem with this approach is that change takes time. Whether by eating right and working out, or accepting a little help from a plastic surgeon to finally get rid of those problem areas, it takes time to see a difference. If you wait until the moment you’d like to see results to start working toward them, you will be sadly disappointed and discouraged. This is why using the time of the “off-season” is the wisest use of your time and energy.

The Best Plastic Surgeries in Winter

A great rule of thumb is always be proactive, and always ask questions. If you are considering any form of plastic surgery, schedule an initial, free consultation with a doctor you trust, and ask about recovery time and when prospective results will appear. 

Mommy Makeovers: Breast Augmentation, Liposuction, and Beyond!

Mommy Makeovers can include any number of procedures, including a tummy tuck, a breast lift,  breast reduction, breast enhancement, and liposuction. For most of these, there is a two to three week recovery time, as the procedures involve incisions and sutures. One of the benefit of scheduling this process in the winter is that you are able to plan the dates for every appointment, from initial consultation to final check-up, all before the groundhog pops his little head up! The kids will be in school, and you’ll be all recovered and ready to hit the pool with confidence when summer finally rolls around!


CoolSculpting is a non-invasive option that will slim down and contour your body, targeting stubborn pockets of fat with a device that freezes fat cells which are then absorbed by the body over time. While CoolSculpting is a pain-free procedure that requires no recovery or downtime, optimal results will be reached two to three months after, as it takes time for the body to organically dispose of fat being targeted. This makes it an ideal option to begin in the wintertime.

Facial Rejuvination: Get Your Glow On!

Rather than waiting for tanning season to arrive, getting a head start on facial rejuvenation is a great way to avoid that dull, pale, winter skin! Instead of caking your face with excessive amounts of highlight and bronzer, consider receiving a MicroLaser Peel, or Forever Young BBL, both great options for removing skin discoloration, upping collagen production, removing wrinkles, and leaving your skin healthy, glowing, and radiant.
