Popular Spring Plastic Surgery Procedures in New York City

Spring is traditionally a time of transformation as we transition from the colder winter months that keep us indoors, to the warmer days and green shoots that lure us from hibernation.

This desire for transformation is reflected in an increase in cosmetic procedures at our practice as well, as patients begin to shed the overcoat for lighter clothing and of course, bathing suits in preparation for vacation and wedding season.

Recommended Surgical Procedures for Spring

If you’re considering plastic surgery in New York City, and thinking spring is the right time to begin the process, you’re not alone. As the spring months approach, I see an increase in a number of surgical procedures, such as breast augmentation and reduction, liposuction, and the tummy tuck.

Whether patients want to highlight the weight lost thanks to a New Year’s Resolution or they just want to reward themselves for a year of hard work, these procedures are ideal for this time of year because there’s plenty of time to recuperate before summer, and the more mild weather will allow for an easier and more comfortable recovery.

Recovery from Breast Augmentation

While every patient is different, which means every recovery is different, patients can typically expect to return to normal daily activities within one week of the procedure. Read more about the procedure and recovery from breast augmentation.

Recovery from Breast Reduction

Breast reduction is another popular procedure for the spring as patients want to feel more comfortable in tank tops and dresses. I recently wrote two blog posts on breast reduction, and covered everything from consultation to recovery. Click on the links below for more information.

Recovery from Liposuction

Liposuction recovery differs from breast augmentation or reduction, as the downtime depends on the size and number of treatment areas. Swelling and bruising are normal, and will subside with plenty of time to show off your new, slimmer contour in the summer months. Read more about the liposuction recovery, and how together we can address your areas of concern, from wanting slimmer arms or thighs to achieving a tighter facial aesthetic with liposuction of the neck.

Recovery from Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

As with any of the procedures discussed here, swelling and bruising can be expected. However, by taking this into account and performing the procedure in the spring months, we can ensure you are ready to take advantage of the summer months. Read more about recovery from tummy tuck surgery, as well as the general procedure requirements and length of surgery.
