Bikini-Ready in March? Plastic Surgery Season in Tampa Bay, Florida, Beginning Early

Share Article

Women considering breast augmentation in Tampa are scheduling procedures in March and April to enjoy their full results in time for summer. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jeremy Benedetti explains why breast enhancement and liposuction patients are getting a head start on their summer look.

Winter is not yet over, but board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jeremy Benedetti ( says he is already seeing a jump in the number of women scheduling consultations for procedures like Smartlipo™, laser assisted and ultrasound-assisted liposuction and breast augmentation in Tampa Bay to be ready for beach season.

"As early as February and March, my practice starts to see more patients scheduling consultations for breast and body enhancements, particularly," explains Dr. Benedetti. "Many breast enhancement and liposuction patients in Tampa, Florida, really look forward to feeling more confident in a swimsuit, and they want to be able to enjoy typical summer activities like swimming without having to take it easy because they are still healing from surgery. Most women would rather give themselves the extra time beforehand."

Florida women and men have a number of cosmetic surgery options to correct their "trouble spots" or create a firmer, fitter look in preparation for summer. In addition to breast enhancement procedures, Dr. Benedetti cites liposuction and abdominoplasty, and more recently, Smartlipo laser-assisted liposuction, as popular options for patients who want to lose the "winter weight" on their hips, thighs, and abdomen.

Spring is actually one of the most popular times for plastic surgery procedures nationwide, as people prepare for the warmer summer months. Recovery times vary depending on the type and number of procedures a person is having performed, but even if a surgeon is taking advantage of the latest techniques to minimize the recovery period, patients still will require at some downtime to allow their body to recover.

"Breast augmentation patients, in particular, must give themselves at least three weeks to make sure their muscles have enough time to heal before they start to ease into physical activities after their breast enhancement procedure. Tampa, Florida, abdominoplasty patients require a slightly longer recovery period whereas liposuction recovery generally is faster," says Dr. Benedetti.

Several individual factors such as a patient's health habits and fitness also can influence recovery times. Combination breast enhancement procedures for Tampa, Florida, women, such as "mommy makeovers," typically require longer recovery times than standalone procedures.

"Every plastic surgery procedure is unique. It requires a detailed understanding of the patient's goals, but also a larger perspective of their health, habits, and needs," adds Dr. Benedetti. "These days, more plastic surgery patients in Tampa Bay, Florida, are aware of the kind of planning and time commitment that their decision involves, so they will schedule their consultation farther in advance. That enables both me and the patient more freedom to time the surgery and recovery appropriately so that they can be ready for all that summer has to offer."

Dr. Jeremy Benedetti ( is a Tampa plastic surgeon who is board-certified by both the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery. Dr. Benedetti earned his Medical Doctor degree from The Medical College of Ohio and then went on to complete eight years of extensive surgical training at the University of California, Davis and the University of Virginia. Dr. Benedetti focuses on breast enhancement in Tampa Bay, Florida in addition to body reshaping and facial rejuvenation surgery.
