Planning Cosmetic Procedures Now for Best Summer Results
Both surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures are often in demand at this time of year, and while most non-surgical procedures have very quick results, some may take longer than others, or work best in regularly scheduled treatments. Another advantage to early scheduling is that this will allow you to ensure the time slots that work best for you in relation to be events, parties or vacations this summer.
Popular Springtime Surgical and Non-Surgical Procedures
Some of the most popular non-surgical procedures that are performed for summer preparation are laser hair removal, laser skin treatments, and chemical peels. Recovery for some particularly deep chemical peels or skin treatments may require avoiding sun exposure for a long period of time, something that should be scheduled around vacations and other summertime activities.
The most popular surgical procedures done in preparation of summertime are body contouring and breast procedures, which often require a recovery period of several weeks. The most popular body contouring procedures are liposuction, tummy tucks and arm lifts, which vary in terms of recovery time. Liposuction does not require a long recovery, but an in-depth tummy tuck procedure might. Setting up a consultation well in advance can help you to reach your goals without being surprised by a scheduling conflict.
With any surgical procedure, it is crucial to protect the incision lines from sun exposure for a certain amount of time, depending on the incision location and type. Your recovery will include specific instructions on how to care for your incisions, which may include lotions and sun exposure restrictions. Often, your incisions may be hidden within bathing suits, limiting sun exposure.
