As the holiday season, with its meal planning, gift giving, and merrymaking draws to a close, you're probably ready to "celebrate" some quiet time. There are so many things to do with family and friends between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day, you might not be able to imagine squeezing in anything else. If you're thinking of having plastic surgery, though, winter break is a great time to schedule a procedure. Here are four reasons why this is the best time of the year to have plastic surgery in Houston.Time off for Winter Break
Most people arrange to take time off around the holidays anyway, so scheduling plastic surgery can be something you can manage without explaining to your boss or your coworkers how you will be using that time. If you want to celebrate the holidays fully and have a procedure done during winter break, it's better to take your time off late in the break rather than earlier. While you will need some time to recuperate from surgery before you are back to your active lifestyle, if you schedule plastic surgery in mid to late December, you'll be able to do light tasks by January.Less Risk of Overexposure to Sun
In the northern hemisphere, winter break weather is colder and cloudier than at other times during the year. This means that you will have less fear of missing out on fun physical activities your friends might be doing while you're resting up and getting better. Another benefit is that you will have less exposure to sun (and sunburn) at this time. As we've discussed before, tanning will slow down your healing and put you at greater risk of scarring over time. Avoiding exposure to the sun after surgery is wise.No-guilt Couch Vegging
If there's any time of year that people will forgive you for lying on the couch all day and bingeing Netflix, it's during the heart of winter. Recovering from plastic surgery will still allow you to keep up with a full schedule of watching Hallmark Christmas movies and wearing your pajamas.A Better You in the New Year
The best reason of all to schedule a breast augmentation, liposuction, or a tummy tuck during winter break is that you will start the new year with a new and improved body. New Year's resolutions are great, but most people do not stick with them. If you plan your changes before the new year starts, you'll have the whole year and the rest of your life to benefit from them.
Winter break is a great time to schedule plastic surgery, but so is spring break, summer vacation, and any other time off you can count on time off from work or school during the calendar year.
