Is Winter the Best Time for a Tummy Tuck?

In addition to removing excess fat and hanging skin, a tummy tuck can even repair separated or town abdominal muscles. The result is a tighter, firmer tummy that can be ready for the beach in no time at all! Dr. Kenrick Spence and Dr. Fernando Ovalle, Jr. of Hillcrest Plastic Surgery in Orlando, FL, can help you decide the best time for a tummy tuck — and it might be during the winter!

Why Winter Is the Best Time for a Surgical Tummy Tuck in Orlando, FL

Many people who are considering an abdominoplasty ask Dr. Kenrick Spence and Dr. Fernando Ovalle, Jr. about the benefits of having the surgery in the winter. There are several advantages to consider, including:

  • Your body will have plenty of time to recover before summer. While any day can be a beach day in sunny Florida, people typically want to enjoy their tummy tuck results during the sweltering summer temps. With a winter surgical date, you can show off your new beach-ready figure as soon as spring and summer arrive.
  • It might be more comfortable to layer up. With temperatures in the 70s and 80s, you may feel more comfortable — and draw less attention — wearing extra layers. That means you can don a baggy sweatshirt or hoodie to hide your compression garment while running your necessary errands or working in the office.
  • You have more time off. Most people have vacation days to spend by the time winter rolls around. Take advantage of your PTO and use it for your recovery period.
