We are all seeing lots of articles in the news and also press releases claiming that there is a sudden surge in plastic surgery,especially liposuction and breast augmentation in the summer months. Personally, having been in the private practice of plastic surgery since 1988, I respectfully disagree and think those surgeons claiming that are looking for a bump in their schedules. The truth of the matter is that if you want to have a certain look for the summer months where you go to the beach or poolside, you need to think way in advance. Plastic surgery is more involved than getting a new bikini or highlights in your hair. Even under the best of circumstances, either a breast augmentation or liposuction will have you on limited activity and avoiding sun for 2-4 weeks. So if you have the surgery tomorrow, you might be able to go to the beach/ pool in mid-August. That does not sound like a well though out plan. Taking into account the fact that your selected surgeon might not be able to have available operating room slots for 2-4 weeks or more, you need to plan in advance. I typically will start seeing patients that want to look better for the Christmas holidays in early October. Fillers and non-surgical options can be done much closer to the desired dates but surgery needs to be planned way in advance.
