As we enter the colder and rainier winter months in Los Altos, time seems to slow. This is a great time to consider more involved surgical procedures, which may require a little downtime, enabling you to resume a more active lifestyle as soon as things get warmer.
Many plastic surgery procedures require several weeks of limited activity. However, walks and similarly gentle exercise can often help improve comfort, shorten recovery time, and enhance final results. Thankfully, these things are still easy to do during the cooler season, further making now the ideal time to contact our office to speak with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons and learn more about the procedures you find most attractive.
Our Plastic Surgery Procedures
We offer several options to enhance and improve the appearance of our patients. These include:
- Facial Surgery, such as facelift, rhinoplasty, eyelid lift, and chin augmentation
- Breast Surgery, including breast augmentation, breast lift, and breast reduction
- Body Surgery, such as liposuction, tummy tuck, arm lift, and thigh lift
Many of these procedures will create optimal outcomes on their own, but others can be combined to address many concerns and make more dramatic improvements. For example, post-weight loss body lift options, mommy makeover surgery, and fat transfer treatments such as the Brazilian Butt Lift address multiple areas of the body at once, helping to create impressive results without requiring several surgical procedures.
Common Limitations Following Plastic Surgery
Following most plastic surgery procedures, avoiding work for one or more weeks will be necessary. Swimming and other activities that can cause incisions to become wet will need to be avoided for up to six weeks in some cases, and demanding activities and exercise may need to be put off for eight. Many people find these limitations more tolerable during the cooler and wetter winter months.
Choosing to have your procedure performed now not only helps to ensure you can resume normal activities by springtime, but also helps to ensure your results are finalized and ready to show off when the warmer weather returns. If you have been thinking about facial, breast, or body enhancement, we encourage you to get in touch today to schedule your consultation and learn how we can help you reach your goals.
