Planning Ahead: Winter Breast Augmentation for Summer Curves
by Beauty Blogger Emmy Owens
Cleavage may be a rare sight out in the cold weather, but women are already thinking about how theirs will look when it’s time to show it off again. As it turns out, women like to plan ahead: despite the fact that there’s no bikini weather on the horizon, winter is the most popular time for women to decide to have breast augmentation surgery, both in Canada and the United States.
Here’s why that’s a smart move.
Fashion Is on Your Side
Sweaters and scarves and outerwear, oh my. Options are endless, but suffice it to say it won’t be odd to see you wearing heavier clothing in those first few weeks after your procedure. Bundling up for the cold weather helps you hide any signs of your surgery, such as initial bruising or swelling, from the prying eyes of curious friends and relatives — until you’re ready to tell them about it.
Netflix Marathons Will Rule Your Life Anyway
After surgery, it’s important to rest and to stay out of direct sunlight, giving your body a chance to heal properly with minimal scarring. If you had your procedure in the summer, this can make you feel like you’re cooped up inside. But if you have surgery in the winter, you’re already dialing back your outdoor activities, and no one will notice if you’re a little bit more of a hermit than usual. Think of it as an opportunity to get under the blankets and catch up on all your favorite shows.
That’s where Netflix comes to the rescue. With more originals in this year’s lineup than ever before, you’ll be missing out if you don’t find out what’s happening with Frank Underwood’s reelection campaign, Piper Chapman’s latest soapbox issue, or Chelsea Handler’s all-new comedy.
You’ll Be So Ready for Bikini Season
Winter can make us all a little stir-crazy. At first, the fireplace is cozy, the hot chocolate is delicious, and the snow is pristine and beautiful. And then the wind chill drops to -20°C for the fourth day in a row, or you’re dealing with freezing rain during your evening commute, and you curse the skies.
In those moments, daydreams of summer often serve as helpful coping mechanisms. The website of Calgary-based Macleod Trail Plastic Surgery says breast augmentation gives women a reason to look forward to wearing more revealing clothes. “The women who visit us for breast implants in Calgary do so for many reasons. One of the primary reasons is that women feel self-conscious about having smaller breasts and want to enjoy a wider range of clothing and swimsuit options.”
In other words, you’ll be able to rock that bikini you’ve always dreamed of come warmer weather. Getting surgery now means you’ll have plenty of time to recover. Most surgeons say breast implants take a few months to “settle” into a natural-looking position, so a winter procedure times out nicely. And when you need to crank up the heat because you’re shivering every time you walk outside, that just might be the most comforting thought of all.
