Summer Surgery: Why Summer Is the Best Time to Get Your Surgical Procedure

  • Posted on: Apr 17 2024

Cosmetic surgery has seen a surge in popularity nowadays, whether it’s something minimal or more invasive. Women and men worldwide are taking steps to bring their best face (and body) forward. With the improvements in technology, we expect this trend will continue in the future as well, especially as surgeries become more accessible.



Of course, you can have a surgical procedure whenever you want. However, there are several reasons why you should consider summertime for an enhancement procedure. In this blog, you will learn more about the benefits of scheduling a summer procedure with Azul at our Azul® Surgical Arts Center.

Reasons to Get a Surgical Procedure In Summer

The warmer season brings plenty of benefits for candidates considering going under the knife, which includes the following: 

  • Vacation Season

    Summer is synonymous with vacations and downtime for many people. By scheduling cosmetic surgery during the summer months, individuals can strategically plan their procedures around their vacation schedules, allowing for extended recovery periods without having to take time off work.

  • Ample Recovery Time

    One of the primary reasons why summer is the best time for cosmetic surgery is the ample opportunity it provides for recovery. With longer daylight hours and typically fewer work commitments, patients can take advantage of the downtime to focus on recuperating post-surgery. Additionally, warmer temperatures allow for more comfortable recovery, as patients can wear loose, breathable clothing that won’t irritate incision sites.

  • Confidence Boost for Swimsuit Season

    For those considering body contouring procedures such as liposuction or BodyTite, summer offers the perfect opportunity to showcase their newly enhanced figures. With swimsuit season in full swing, many individuals are motivated to undergo cosmetic surgery to achieve their desired beach body. By opting for surgery during the spring or early summer months, patients can ensure they’re fully recovered and ready to flaunt their results by the time swimsuit season arrives.

  • Faster Wound Healing

  • Summertime is usually when your body comes to life, helping it heal faster. Some studies also suggest that UV light in moderate amounts can promote wound healing, particularly by preventing infection. You still need to be careful and wear sunscreen when going out, but by getting the procedure in summer, you gain an advantage that the cold season does not have.

  • Gradual Results in Time for Fall

    While the immediate results of cosmetic surgery are often noticeable, the full extent of the transformation may take several weeks or even months to fully manifest. By undergoing surgery in the summer, individuals can allow ample time for swelling to subside and for their bodies to settle into their new contours. For example, with procedures like a brow lift, it could take a few months for the surgical scars to go away completely. Gradual progression ensures that by the time fall rolls around, patients can confidently unveil their refreshed appearance without any lingering signs of surgery.



How to Prepare for Summer Surgery

Even though summer is a great time to get your surgical procedure, remember that the strong UV rays can also bring some challenges. So, you should take some precautions. For example, avoid tanning and sun exposure before surgery for at least two weeks, especially if your procedure involves a laser.

Also, give yourself time to heal. The recovery period varies from one procedure to another, so discussing an after-care timeline with our providers at the Azul® Surgical Arts Center is crucial when it comes to your recovery. If you have to go out in the sun, wear sunblock and breathable clothing to promote fast healing.
