T’is The Season: Get Your Body Contoured Over the Holidays

With winter approaching, you may have shifted to maintenance mode in several areas of your life. If you live in a house, you might have worked on your landscaping – not so much because you want it to look pretty right now, but because you want to get it ready for spring. You might have cut back bushes, planted daffodil bulbs, and covered it all up with mulch so it looks decent while it regenerates itself.

When it comes to getting your body ready to look beautiful in a bathing suit come spring, you should follow the same pattern. What better time than now to perform some much-needed maintenance, cover it up in something pretty, and wait till the spring to show it off in all its young-again glory?

Recovery After Plastic Surgery

This doesn’t mean it takes an entire winter for you to recover from a plastic surgery procedure. Quite the contrary. At NuBody Concepts, we specialize in procedures that allow you to return to your day-to-day activities with only a few days of downtime. Aqualipo, our most popular procedure, only takes about two hours and has a downtime of under a week, with most patients able to return to work or play after two days. Or take our new female rejuvenation with ThermiVa – it’s completely non-invasive and doesn’t have any downtime at all. Even with our surgical procedures we specialize in a fast recovery. Our face lifts, tummy tucks, and breast augmentations typically allow you to return to your physical activity in under two weeks.

But while you’ll feel completely normal after your recovery from a cosmetic procedure, your best results will often take a little longer to show. Typically, a liposuction patient will see a noticeable difference after 6 weeks. This is also around the time you’ll have your first follow-up visit. It allows your doctor to assess your progress, take after pictures, and determine whether a compression garment is still needed for further progress. It can take up to 12 weeks to achieve your target look.

Making Sure Your Liposuction Gets Results

There are different opinions on compression garments as part of the post-op regime of liposuction, but with over 7,000 procedures performed, we know that they improve your outcome. They help mold your shape and keep swelling to a minimum. This is why winter is such a good time to have your procedure, when wearing another layer isn’t an issue.

Now is the time to undertake some maintenance, not just on your house and yard but also your body. Schedule a consultation and find out how to get rid of those love handles and muffin tops. If you’ve lost a lot of weight already, a tummy tuck might be the best gift you can give yourself this year. Or go for the entire Mommy Makeover if your breasts could use a lift too. Our board-certified plastic surgeon will be happy to discuss options with you.

A Perfect Gift for Yourself

We know that this time of year is busy, and you’re probably focused on anything else but yourself. But it’s also the time of year you can take advantage of fashionable layers to cover yourself up after a plastic surgery or body contouring procedure. Wear a stylish new wrap, an elegant cardigan, or even an Ugly Christmas Sweater, and no one has to know what’s going on underneath. Kick back, enjoy the holidays, and voila: Come January you’ll feel like an entirely new person. And you won’t even need any New Year’s resolutions to help get you there.
