The most popular new year’s resolutions usually involve improving your lifestyle and appearance. Undergoing a cosmetic surgery procedure can help to improve confidence levels in the same way making lifestyle changes like exercising and improving your diet can. In this blog we look at why January is the best month to book in for your procedure.
There’s no time like the present!
It’s a well-known fact that if we let our resolutions sit unfulfilled for too long, they simply will not be achieved before the end of the year. If improving your appearance is one of your new year’s resolutions; wouldn’t it be great to cross it off your list by getting your surgery done in the same month that you made it your resolution. Most people who decide to have cosmetic surgery have been considering it for years and one of the most common things we hear from patients following surgery is that they wish they’d had it done sooner.
Plenty of time to recover
January and February are two of the coldest months in the year, so we’re all wrapped up in our warmest clothes. This is the perfect scenario if you’ve just undergone surgery as you can keep covered up while you’re healing! There’s also a good few months before spring hits so you’ll also have plenty of time to adjust to your new and improved appearance. Following most procedures, it takes around 6 weeks to fully recover and for the final result to be achieved so you can take time to recover and make sure you follow the aftercare advice properly.
You won’t miss out
For most people, January isn’t a busy month with everyone recovering from the Christmas madness. We tend to go out less and stay in more which means that your surgery is less likely to affect important plans and you might also find that you’re not missing out on any exciting events and nights out!
Strike while the irons hot
Getting your surgery at the beginning of the year can also go hand in hand with your other resolutions. For example, if you wish to lose weight in the new year this can help you to transform your overall appearance! If last year’s resolution was to lose weight, and you have met that goal, but now want to address another concern this could be the year to do it!
Don’t miss out on your getting summer body ready
Having cosmetic surgery in January means you’ll be fully recovered by the summer months and you’ll be able to see your dial result. You’ll also be able to fly without concern so you can book your summer holiday abroad. It is likely that your scars will be minimal by this point and your results will look their very best.
