Dr. Deutsch of Perimeter Plastic Surgery advises tummy tuck patients to schedule procedure during winter months for increased comfort during postoperative healing.

Winter is the best time to get a tummy tuck

Atlanta plastic surgery practice, Perimeter Plastic Surgery, encourages patients to consider seasonal advantages when planning a tummy tuck and other cosmetic procedures. There are distinct benefits that winter months offer during a patient’s postoperative healing period, including discreet recovery and reduced sun exposure.

“Although tummy tucks are performed year-round, there are various reasons as to why having the procedure performed during the cold season is ideal,” said Mark Deutsch, MD, FACS, a double board-certified plastic surgeon and the medical director of Perimeter Plastic Surgery. “In the winter months, patients are able to use layers to cover compression garments more comfortably; they also have less risk of hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation, which is the darkening or lightening of scars due to sun exposure.”

Compression garments are mandatory for patients several weeks following a tummy tuck to control swelling and improve results. During colder months, garments can be hidden under bulkier winter clothing, and no wardrobe restrictions are necessary.

“Heat from the sun can also slow the recovery process, resulting in a longer waiting period before full treatment benefits are revealed,” said Dr. Deutsch. “Winter provides a more controlled healing environment in which post-op swelling is more likely to be minimized. In addition, incision wounds from winter will heal by spring, and patients will have regained energy to participate in recreational activities.”

To encourage patients to take advantage of these wintertime benefits, Perimeter Plastic Surgery is offering $500 off a tummy tuck procedure.
