With long lines forming at ski resorts in the Rockies already, the last thing on anyone’s mind is bikini season. Yet, winter is actually the best time of year to think about liposuction. Here’s a closer look at why you should schedule your body sculpting procedure while there’s still snow on the ground.
The Benefits of Bulky Clothing
The extra layers made necessary by the cold weather may make you feel bulky and uncomfortable, but they have one huge benefit: they’re very forgiving. Following your lipo, you’ll have to wear a special compression garment for a few weeks. This encourages your body to adapt more rapidly to its new, slimmer contours, and also helps expel any remaining tumescent fluid for a faster, more comfortable recovery. Hiding a compression garment under shorts and a tank top would be just about impossible, but the heavier winter fashions mean that no one has to know you’ve had work done unless you want them to.
Winter’s Lighter Schedule
After liposuction, it’s a good idea to plan on taking it easy for a week or two. For many people, summer’s hustle and bustle just isn’t conducive to downtime. In the winter, kids are back in school and life feels a bit more settled, making it much easier for most men and women to take a little hiatus without missing out on too much...as long as you plan your timing strategically around the holidays, that is. Plus, scheduling your appointment now means that you’ll be fully healed by the time it warms up outside again and it actually is time to think about that bikini.
