When you think of fall, what comes to mind? Perhaps you thought of fantasy football, a pumpkin-flavored latte, or apple picking in a colorful Capitol Region orchard. These are all delightful ways to ring in the new season. For me, though, it’s a little different.
When I think of fall, I equate it with breast augmentation here in Albany, NY. That’s because, as a board-certified plastic surgeon, I always see the trend of more patients considering the procedure once the fall rolls around.
Breast enhancement has long been a popular topic from late August to early November at The Plastic Surgery Group, and this year is no exception. We’ve even seen an uptick in requests for breast augmentation consultations, with some women booking surgeries into the early part of 2016. Don’t worry, though: We still have room for you.
So, why the increased interest? There are many advantages to having a breast enhancement procedure in the fall and winter months:
- Vacations are over. Many women prefer to fill their summers with adventurous vacations, camping trips, and wedding weekends — not recovering from surgery. After breast augmentation, you can return to your normal routine after a couple of weeks but your breasts will be sensitive for 3 to 5 more. You’ll want to take it easy. You probably won’t want to be on a plane, and you certainly won’t want to be in a tent! For this reason, it’s common for women to put off getting breast implants with us in Albany, NY until after their summer fun has fizzled.
- Holidays are ahead. Winter vacations are typically much more forgiving for breast augmentation recovery. If you are fortunate enough to have some time off during the fall, you are more likely to use it catching up with family in front of a cozy fireplace or sitting down to a nice meal, both of which are pleasurable experiences for the recovery period. Many of our patients actually look forward to the opportunity to rest and catch up on some reading (or, if you’re like me, Netflix).
- More clothing. If you’re considering breast augmentation because you want to look and feel better in a bathing suit or dress, you’re not alone. During your recovery though, you may find that you enjoy the opportunity to bundle up. Also, if you’re not planning on telling your friends, family, or co-workers right away, you will be able to keep your results under wraps for longer than is possible during the warm summer months.
