Best Time to Have Cosmetic Surgery?

September 21st, 2021

When is the best time to have Cosmetic Surgery? Sometimes my patients want to know when is the best time for them to have cosmetic surgery. Unless there is a particular concern in scheduling the procedure, the best time to consider having elective cosmetic surgery really depends on how much something  bothers you. I find that life circumstances may often drive the decision to make a change. Major milestones, such as a birthday, divorce or losing a loved one, sometimes contribute to wanting physical renewal. And now a new factor appears to be instrumental because during the pandemic, many people were commuting to the office via Zoom. This unusual situation seems to have influenced patients to make several lifestyle changes and cosmetic surgery nipntucks are apparently among those changes.

Of course, it is unwise to rush into the decision to have elective cosmetic surgery. The decision to have surgery requires thoughtful consideration. It should represent a thorough understanding of the procedure, pre-op preparations, post-op care and restrictions, and 100% confidence in your surgical team.

Are Mommy Makeovers Still A Thing?

Are Mommy Makeovers Still A Thing? Many will agree that having children is one of the most rewarding experiences a mother may have. However, the physical effects of pregnancy, especially multiple pregnancies, can leave some women with unwanted and unflattering changes to the body. A Mommy Makeover is a combination of restoring breasts to pre-pregnancy size and shape (enlargement, reduction, lift) and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) using body sculpting techniques of the abdomen to tighten stretched muscles and flatten the tummy. I do not recommend having both surgeries done at the same time and prefer to allow full recovery in between procedures. My patients are about even in choosing which surgery to do first and some are even satisfied with electing to do only the initial surgery.

The goal of this post-partum surgery is to restore the natural feminine shape due to changes in anatomy following pregnancy when diet and exercise are ineffective to correct. Yes, I still see patients considering this type of restorative cosmetic surgery. Patients report being very happy with their decision to have this surgery.
