I’ve performed liposuction on Long Island for years and have answered just about every liposuction question you can imagine. A common question among many of my patients is when is the “best” time for this popular procedure. Although timing for a procedure comes down to personal schedules and needs, I often recommend winter as a good time to improve those nagging trouble spots that exercise won’t fix.
One of the reasons winter is such a great season for liposuction is that it provides adequate time to recover. Advances in procedural techniques have greatly reduced the amount of recovery time and bruising associated with surgical procedures, but any side effects that do occur during recovery are more easily covered with winter clothing.
A number of patients find that having liposuction in winter helps motivate them and get them on track to a more active, healthy lifestyle. A wintertime commitment to regular exercise and liposuction for the areas exercise can’t seem to change helps women and men achieve their ideal bodies just in time for bathing suit season.
By combining liposuction with another procedure such as breast augmentation, many Long Island patients discover that they can reduce their overall recovery time still achieve stunning results.
It’s always great to see the physical and personal results from liposuction when patients return to my practice to show off their new bodies. As with any cosmetic procedure, the best way to help ensure that you will get beautiful results is to seek out a qualified surgeon who can help you learn about the many available options for body enhancement.
