Best Plastic Surgery Procedures to Have During the Summer

Summertime is a fabulous season for plastic and cosmetic surgery! We find that some patients prefer to have their surgery in the fall and winter to reduce the aftercare blues associated with fajas and other compression apparel that can be uncomfortable in places with extreme heat. However, in the summer when the sun is shining, there isn’t snow on the ground, and vitamin D is prevalent, many prefer this time of year to have their surgeries and we definitely understand the sentiment. If you’re worried about having FOMO on the fun summer festivities, then here are three procedures perfect for the summer due to their amazing results and shorter period for recovery.

1. Rhinoplasty

Recovery time: 7-10 days

Restricted activity: 30 days

Rhinoplasty surgery, commonly called a “nose job” is performed to change the appearance of the nose and can also be done to improve breathing or other nasal complications. During a rhinoplasty, you can change all areas of the nose from the dorsal hump, nasal bridge, nose ridge, nostrils and nasal tip. This surgery is tailored to the patients’ needs, goals and their facial shape.

Patients 16 years of age and older choose to have a rhinoplasty in the summer because recovery is about one (1) week and requires resting with the head raised higher than the chest, applying sunscreen daily and wearing the nasal dressing for two (2) weeks. For 30 days you will need to avid the following:

  • Showering (baths are recommended)
  • Blowing your nose
  • Sun exposure
  • Putting clothes on over your head
  • Running
  • Swimming
  • Weightlifting
  • Aggressive toothbrushing
  • Wearing glasses on the nose

2. Breast Augmentation

Recovery time: 4-6 weeks

Restricted activity: 30 days

More breast surgeries are done each year than any other surgery in the world. There were upwards of 1.6 million breast implant surgeries done in 2020 alone. With a recovery time between 4-6 weeks, it’s no wonder many PURE patients ages 18 years and older decide to have this surgery in the summer. Breast implants are designed to create projection and volume to improve the bust and create a more youthful appearance by placing implants either above or under the chest muscles depending on body structure, skin elasticity, breast density and patient goals.

There are various materials, sizes and shapes for breast implants. Patients have a choice between saline and silicone material, amount of volume, tear drop or round shape and smooth or textured implants.

After initial recovery, strenuous activity, such as heavy lifting and placing pressure on the breast area should be avoided.

3. Liposuction 180 and Liposuction 360

Recovery time: up to 6 weeks

Restricted activity: 30 days

Stubborn fat gone in six (6) weeks or less? Yes, please! Many PURE patients ages 18 years and older are happy with their liposuction recovery experience during summer months. Liposuction, known as lipoplasty or body contouring, is a technique in cosmetic surgery that uses suction to remove excess fat from under the skin. For some Lipo 180, which only targets the front of the abdominal area or back will be the best option. For others, Lipo 360 is complete liposuction around the entire trunk. Both will re-shape the body to help reach the desired goals.

We ask that patients avoid significant weight gain post-surgery, including pregnancies, to maintain optimal results and avoid additional rounds.
