Spring is here, and there’s no better way to welcome the season of beginnings with a new you! At Midsota Plastic Surgery, many women choose to enhance their bust line with breast augmentation during the early months of spring. There are many advantages in choosing spring for your breast augmentation!
Be Bikini Ready by Summer
Summer will be here before you know it. If your goal is to show off your new figure this summer, April and May are the perfect months to schedule your breast augmentation. By enhancing your breasts with an implant during the spring months, you can be ready to show off your curvaceous figure come summer. Not only will your body have time to heal when you plan ahead, but it also gives your breast implants time to “settle-in”, a process in which your skin and tissue gradually acclimate to the addition of an implant over the next few weeks to a month.
Take Advantage of Your Spring Wardrobe
Our Minnesota weather is far cooler in the spring than in the summer, so take advantage of the breezy weather for a more comfortable recovery. After breast augmentation, it’s imperative that you keep your incisions protected from the sun. Light and airy spring layers not only conceal your incisions well but also are far more comfortable as you continue to heal.
Any residual scarring will fade within the first few months and should be almost unnoticeable once you’ve fully healed. Most women find that this takes four to six weeks, so if you schedule your breast augmentation now, you can be sure that you are ready to enjoy the summer sun.
Make Use of Your Spring Schedule
Breast augmentation requires that you take several days to a week away from work for your surgery and initial recovery period. It’s important that you’re able to clear your schedule and allow yourself a break from your usual routine. Many of our patients find that their spring schedule is far less busy than their summer agendas, and they’re able to make use of a few extra vacation days to schedule their breast augmentation.
