Dr. Mahlon Kerr, an Austin plastic surgery specialist, explains why the spring months are the ideal time for a plastic surgery procedure, giving the patient time to recover.

Spring is the beginning of many things: fresh new flowers, warmer weather, and perhaps a new you. Dr. Mahlon Kerr (, an Austin plastic surgery specialist, suggests that the optimal time for a Mommy Makeover and similar procedures is in the warmer, spring months. Around March and April, Dr. Kerr experiences an increase in patients seeking body contouring and breast procedures. By scheduling their surgery during the early spring, these patients can be fully recovered by swimsuit season.

"Starting around March or April, I tend to notice an increase in the number of patients coming to my practice," says Dr. Kerr. "Many of them hope to contour or reshape specific parts of the body, and they want to be fully recovered by summer so they can flaunt their new physiques. This is one of the reasons why I advise that women consider having a plastic surgery procedure such as a Mommy Makeover during the spring months."

Surgical procedures such as a tummy tuck or a breast augmentation in Austin performed by Dr. Kerr can be combined to save time during recovery. This combination is sometimes referred to as a "Mommy Makeover." By combining surgical procedures, patients only have to recover once, as opposed to two separate times.

"Combination procedures like the 'Mommy Makeover' is a great way to enhance surgical results without too much downtime," states Dr. Kerr. "I understand that many of my patients work, and simply cannot take more time off than necessary for plastic surgery. By combining these surgical procedures, patients can enjoy a shorter recovery period. In addition, if they schedule their procedure for spring, come summer they will be able to show off their new figure, which is exciting for my patients."

Dr. Kerr specializes in a variety of face, breast, and body procedures, including liposuction, tummy tuck, and breast lift surgery in Austin. His practice, Synergy Plastic Surgery, is defined by the phrase, "enhanced results of many parts working together," meaning that the staff uses the latest advances in surgical techniques to give patients the ultimate plastic surgery experience.

"It is important to me that my patients understand how much we are committed to providing them with a good experience," says Dr. Kerr. "For those who want their perfect beach bodies, now is a great time to come and visit us. Together we can achieve fantastic results that patients can enjoy during those hot, summer months."
