5 Reasons Why January is the Best Month to Get Cosmetic Surgery

The most popular new year’s resolutions usually involve improving your lifestyle and appearance. Undergoing a cosmetic surgery procedure can help to improve confidence levels in the same way making lifestyle changes like exercising and improving your diet can. In this blog we look at why January is the best month to book in for your procedure.

1. There’s no time like the present

It’s a well-known fact that if we let our resolutions sit unfulfilled for too long, they simply will not be achieved before the end of the year. If improving your appearance is one of your new year’s resolutions, wouldn’t it be great to cross it off your list by getting your surgery done in the same month that you made it your resolution? Most people who decide to have cosmetic surgery have been considering it for years and one of the most common things we hear from patients following surgery is that they wish they’d done sooner!

2. Plenty of time to recover

January and February are two of the coldest months of the year, which means we’re all wrapped up in our warmest clothes. This is the perfect scenario if you’ve just undergone surgery as you can keep covered up while you’re healing! There’s also a good few months before spring starts so you’ll also have plenty of time to adjust to your new and improved appearance. In most cases it takes between 4 – 6 weeks to fully recover from surgery and to see the final result, so you can take time to recover and make sure you follow the aftercare advice properly.

3. You won’t miss out!

For most people, January isn’t a busy month with everyone recovering from the Christmas madness. We tend to go out less and stay in more, which means that your surgery is less likely to affect important plans. You might also find that you’re not missing out on any exciting events or big nights out!

4. Strike while the irons hot

Getting your surgery at the beginning of the year can also go hand in hand with your other resolutions. For example, if loosing weight was your resolution last year, combining it with body surgery like a tummy tuck or a breast uplift surgery this year could help to transform your overall appearance. Lots of Pall Mall patients come to us after loosing significant amounts of weight as it can result in excess or sagging skin. If you’ve done all the hard work to loose weight, don’t wait to achieve your dream body!

5. Don’t miss out on getting summer body ready

Having cosmetic surgery in January means you’ll be fully recovered by the summer and you’ll be able to see your final result. You’ll also be able to fly without concern, so you can book your summer holiday abroad and stock up on new swimwear! It is likely that any scars will be minimal by this point and you will have completed all of your post operative appointments. All that’s left to do is enjoy life confident in your own skin!
