Why You Should Have Your Breast Surgery In Winter To Aid Recovery

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.

Winter Surgery Is Best For Recovery

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.

Breast Surgery in Winter

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.

You Are Cordially Invited To Be Fabulous: 6 Festive Make-up Looks To Try

If like me, the invitations have started pouring in and you’ve got to somehow come up with ten new parties looks for the holidays season, don’t panic. I have done the leg work for you and devised six easier ways to update your festive make-up for the Christmas and New Year period.

6 Festive Make-Up Looks That Are Simple Yet Dazzling

1.Throw Some Glitter At It

Pat McGrath Glitter Lip Kits Festive Make Up

Let your lips do the talking with Pat McGrath’s incredible lip-kits. Her carefully designed packs allow you to smother your pout with the richest of pigments to really get you in the festive mood. Take care to keep the rest of the face simple, in order to avoid looking too done.

2. Vamp It Up With An Un-Done Smokey Eye


Who says Christmas makeup has to be super sweet and pretty? Enjoy the chance to let your hair down and add some sex appeal to your evening look. Lisa Eldridge’s make-up tutorial is wonderfully simple to follow, in addition, it will take you from plain Jane to vampy mistress in no time.

3. Nail The Festive Feeling With An Update In Polish Colour

Chanel and Dior Berry Nails With Gold Tips Festive Make-up

Winter calls for berry and bordeaux tones and you won’t find finer coverage than Chanel’s Le Vernis range. In order to add some glam to this festive makeup look, add the slick of gilded gold to the tips. Be sure to keep nails short and elegant, though.

4. Go For The Gold With Metallics

Pat McGrath Metalmorphisis Festive Make-up

Pat’s done it again if this set is anything to go by. The pigmentation of these colours is out of this world, making them perfect for Christmas parties. In order, to really sparkle, coat your lids with these luscious tones and keep the face bare. Arguably one of the greatest eye kits to come out in ages, plus there is something to suit all skin tones. It really is the perfect festive make-up look.

5. Hollywood Glam Ensures You’re The Shining Star


There is a reason Old Hollywood glamour never goes out of style and that is because of its allure and sex appeal. The look has been recreated over time and time again, always with a nod back to a movie age gone-by. Charlotte Tilbury’s take gives a nice modern twist to the look. The gold shimmer and lips that look like you’ve been sipping mulled wine creates the perfect festive make-up look. Release your inner starlet and get ready for your close-up.

6. Emeralds Are A Girl’s Best Friend

Green Eyeshadow festive make-up

Luscious greens and deep emeralds will ensure you’re noticed this Christmas. Imagine wearing a beautifully tailored smoking suit with hair slicked back and these dazzling eyes, you will be the chicest gal in town. Nonetheless, this look isn’t for the faint of heart, but I assure you, if you’re brave enough everyone else will be green with envy. Nars’s khaki tones in Night Porter will ease you in slowly or go all out with Mac’s New Crop. The greens are reminiscent of Christmas trees, so just wait, people will be placing gifts at your feet in no time.

I hope you have fun this Christmas period and experiment with some of these festive make-up looks. Now, grab a glass of champagne and find that guy under the mistletoe.
