Rhinoplasty is a frequently performed facial plastic surgery. Sometimes called a “nose job” by patients, it refines and reshapes the nose to enhance facial harmony. It can also address structural defects in the nose that cause impaired breathing.
Experienced facial plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Weiss performs this transformative procedure year-round. However, many patients find that summer is the optimal time to undergo rhinoplasty. Here are a few things to consider when deciding if a summer procedure makes sense for you.
Why Undergo Cosmetic Surgery in the Summer?
Having a rhinoplasty procedure in the summer can be ideal. When you choose to undergo nose reshaping this season, you’ll achieve your cosmetic goals while taking advantage of several unique benefits.
To begin with, you may find it easier to schedule surgery in the summer months. You likely have fewer commitments and your work may be a bit slower. If you have kids, things such as carpooling, after school activities, and homework help are also off your plate. This new freedom can make it more feasible to pick a date for your procedure.
Of course, you’ll need to take more than just your surgery date off. Patients commonly stay home for a week due to bruising and swelling. For students and teachers, the break from school provides an excellent opportunity to recover from rhinoplasty. And because it’s common to vacation in the summer, people working standard 9-5 jobs can request a short leave without drawing much attention.
Finally, a summer procedure is ideal if you’re about to enter a new phase of your life. Not only will your surgery be more private, but you’ll start your new chapter with renewed self-confidence. For these reasons, many young men and women undergo rhinoplasty before college.
If you aren’t ready for surgery, a liquid rhinoplasty using fillers may be an ideal way to enhance the shape of your nose.
