There is no single best time or season to plan for your breast augmentation, yet there are several considerations while choosing the time that’s right for you. Some women prefer making sure they’re ready for a bikini when summer comes while others may only have available time right in the middle of summer. In the end, it comes down to making the right decision for you, your schedule and your surgeon.
Plan for Your Time Out
One of the first things you should look at is the amount of time you will be able to spend off work or in limited capacity after your procedure. Generally, figure on a few days of at-home rest and then for the next week or 2 you’ll be on light duty. That said, your job duties will have something to do in this part of the planning stage. You might want to pick a time that is “off-season” for your industry or position.
The best time for breast augmentation is ultimately your choice.
Looking for the Right Plastic Surgeon
So maybe you have a general idea about when you’d like to have your augmentation, but do you have a plastic surgeon? Many factors come into play when selecting the best plastic surgeon for your breast augmentation, including skill, technique and the ability to help guide you through the process. Availability can be a factor, too.
Allow a few weeks to select a surgeon and at least a month to 6 weeks or more from consultation to procedure. After you select a surgeon, you can discuss the time frame you’d like to have your augmentation, as well as your surgeon’s schedule, and set the date.
Be sure to discuss with your plastic surgeon his/her recommendations for both pre- and post-procedure and other specifics that help work your breast augmentation into the time frame you desire.
