Perhaps you are contemplating having breast surgery and are trying to get all the information and knowledge together. If this is the case, I’m here to help. I aim to provide advice and experience regarding breast treatment. Timing is essential when having any sort of surgery due to the recovery period. Now, you maybe be having breast surgery to give you your ideal beach body, but it is in fact winter when the procedure should be carried out. Here are all the reasons why breast surgery in winter makes for a more pleasant recovery for you.
Having Breast Surgery In Winter Favours Recovery Far Better
After having any sort of breast treatment the first week is a full relaxation week. You will be required to rest-up and avoid any sort of strain, exercise or work. Depending on your surgery you may even be required to wear special supportive bras. What better time to lie on the sofa all wrapped up than in winter? You’ll enjoy it much more as you relax and catch up on Netflix, if you’re toasty warm and surrounded by carefree activities to do.
- First-week post surgery: Absolutely no physical activities at all, including showering
- Two to three weeks post surgery: Build up to light physical activities such as housework
- Four to five weeks: None vigorous exercise such as cycling should be fine.
- Six weeks onwards: All normal activities can be resumed if everything has gone well with your surgery.
Should everything go according to plan, once the first two to three weeks are over you are able to introduce more gentle activities such as low-level housework and light exercise. It’s far easier to be lax on the exercise due to the cold weather outside and dark nights so you won’t feel you’re missing out as much. As explained in the bullet points above, it’s all a matter of waiting until your body has recovered to regain your active lifestyle again. Why not wrap up and see out winter snug in your own home and wait to see your transformation completed?
Scarring And Settling
Having breast surgery in winter means that by the time the summer rolls around your brand new breasts are ready for bikinis, low cut tops, dresses and sunshine. In order to minimise scarring, keeping the marks out of the sun is important as the UV rays can lighten the skin, thus making the scars more prominent. Weather in the UK means you need not fear the sun in winter. You’ll be comfortably wrapped up at all times, allowing your skin to heal faster.
As with any treatment, it takes time for your body to recover and settle. Along with scarring, if you were to have breast surgery in winter, any swelling would have vanished by the summer. This means your breasts will look natural and you’re able to feel comfortable showing off your new cleavage.
Finances And Time Off Work
Financially breast surgery in winter also makes sense. Christmas gifting and money means you may be more available to finance the procedure yourself. On the other hand, you may have the option to save up over the year and make it your gift to yourself. Imagine starting the new year feeling like your new, improved and happy self. On another note, as you will obviously need to take time off of work at the beginning of recovery. Therefore, booking time off in the winter months is far easier. Due to the fact, everyone else will be using up their holiday allowance on summer holidays. Whatever you decide, make sure you are well informed and completely happy with all aspects of your surgery.
