Should I Have Plastic Surgery Done This Fall?
Fall offers the chance for new beginnings and opportunities — including getting your dream image. Keep reading to learn the benefits of having your procedure done this autumn with Dr. Kutty.
Why Fall Makes Plastic Surgery a Breeze
Here are a benefits autumn brings when it comes to having a plastic surgery procedure done:
Easier to Cover Up After Surgery
Now that the summer sun has faded and cooler weather is here to stay in Texas, the additional layers of clothing make recovering from surgery easier. You’ll have time to heal under thicker shirts and sweaters, leaving you to look your best when it’s time to flaunt bikinis again.
More Flexibility With Appointments
While most patients tend to have their breast augmentation done towards the end of winter or early spring, having your procedure done during the fall will allow you a wider range of appointments available.
You Can Avoid the Heat
Though it’s never below freezing here in Sugarland, the weather tends to be cooler in autumn. This means you won’t have to worry about inflammation from hot temperatures. Excessive sun exposure following your surgery can lead to scarring, so it’s best to choose to have your procedure done when you know you won’t be spending hours outside.
Results Before Warmer Weather
Though summer just ended, you’re probably already dreaming of the days you can lounge by the pool without a care in the world. For example, by electing to have your breast augmentation in the fall, any signs of the procedure will hardly be noticeable by the time swimsuit season comes back around.
Recover Before the Holidays
By electing to have your surgery done early in the season, you’ll have plenty of time to recover before the festivities kick-off. This means you’ll be healed and ready to enjoy time with your loved ones all season long.
How Long Will it Take to Recover Before I Return to Work?
Recovery times vary depending on the procedure you’ve had done. For example, the standard time frame for recovery following your tummy tuck procedure is 2 to 6 weeks.
Additionally, your health and other specific conditions will determine how quickly you can return to work. For instance, if you have a desk or office focused job, you may be able to return to work sooner than a patient who has a more labor-focused profession.
Combined Cosmetic Surgery
When our patients come in for a consultation with Dr. Kutty, they typically have questions about more than one cosmetic procedure. Instead of requiring patients to come in for multiple appointments, our expertly-trained staff can perform multiple operations and treatments during one appointment — known as a combined cosmetic surgery.
What are my Combined Cosmetic Surgery Options?
In addition to reducing costs and the amount of time a patient needs to spend traveling to the office for multiple appointments, combined surgeries reduce recovery time for patients who are interested in multiple procedures. Typically, facial procedures are separated from body surgeries when completing more than one treatment. Certain procedures can be combined together during the fall to allow for one healing process.
At Luxe Plastic Surgery, Dr. Kutty can perform the following cosmetic surgeries at the same time, eliminating the need for a separate procedure and appointment:
- Breast reduction (or lift) with abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)
- Breast augmentation (with or without a breast lift) with abdominoplasty
- Arm lift (brachioplasty) with a breast lift or reduction
- Thigh lift with abdominoplasty
- Buttock augmentation (fat grafting) with full-body liposuction
- Liposuction with almost any procedure — used for final contouring
- Buccal fat pad removal (cheek contouring) with double-chin liposuction
- Facelift with eyelid rejuvenation (blepharoplasty)
- Brow lift with blepharoplasty
- Neck lift with eyelid rejuvenation
- Rhinoplasty with a chin implant
Many of these procedures can be completed in our office utilizing local, wide-awake anesthesia instead of general anesthesia which requires booking an operating room.
Smaller Procedures With Little to No Down Time
If you’re looking to reshape a particular area of your body this fall, Dr. Kutty offers a wide variety of smaller procedures that require little to no downtime.
Here are some of our most popular rejuvenation options:
An otoplasty, also known as ‘ear pinning,’ is a surgical procedure that can rejuvenate and reshape your earlobes. For patients who struggle with larger-than-normal ears and earlobe deformities, this procedure can draw protruding ears closer to the sides of the face for a more youthful appearance.
This treatment can be used to resolve many different earlobe concerns, including:
- Protruding ears
- Ears that bend over
- Misaligned ears
- Constricted ears
Reversing Sun Damage
Sun damage accounts for 80% of visible aging on our skin. If you spent too much time in the sun this summer, your skin may be left with wrinkles and fine lines that can contribute to an aged appearance.
Luckily, you can repair your youthful glow at Luxe Plastic Surgery with these treatments:
Injectables are a great way to focus specifically on the small details of your skin to change their appearance. These treatments can be used on your face, neck, and hands.
At Luxe Plastic Surgery, we offer the following treatments:
- BOTOX® Cosmetic
For more extensive cases of skin damage, surgical procedures may be needed to repair the appearance of your skin. If topical creams and injectables aren't successful, Dr. Kutty may recommend a facelift or brow lift to tighten your skin.
