Hot chocolate, roasting chestnuts—and plastic surgery? The winter months in Kansas City mean extra layers, more days off, and more time spent indoors, which makes it an ideal time of the year to have plastic surgery. You can begin your journey to a new you in time for the new year. Whether you’re interested in breast surgery, liposuction, or facial plastic surgery, schedule your consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon such as our Dr. Levi Young.

What Makes Winter the Best Time for Plastic Surgery? 

While summer means bikinis, outdoor sports, and barbeques, winter is a more secluded time of year. Men and women bundle up and spend time indoors playing games or binge-watching their favorite show. Those additional layers of warm clothing make it easier to conceal compression garments, which are often used for breast augmentation, liposuction, and tummy tucks. 

Plastic surgery often requires extensive recovery, depending on your chosen procedure. Breast surgery and abdominoplasty, for example, typically need patients to take it easy at home with one to two weeks off of work. That also depends on your profession, but winter makes it easier to make it work with the extra time off.  

A discreet recovery is possible in the winter, whereas the summer can be a conspicuous time to stay indoors and wear extra layers. Another benefit of having plastic surgery in the winter is that you will be healed and ready to show off your new appearance by spring or summer. 

What are My Winter Plastic Surgery Options? 

Adults of all ages can qualify for plastic surgery. At Advanced Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Young offers a variety of procedures for the face, breast, and body, including: 

Body Plastic Surgeries

Body contouring is very much an art form. Every patient is unique, and Dr. Young works to provide stunning, natural-looking results that sculpt your figure. We offer liposuction, arm lift surgery, tummy tuck, and lower body lift. Liposuction can sometimes be performed under local anesthetic, so you’re awake for the procedure, which reduces recovery time and anesthesia risks. Advanced Cosmetic Surgery also offers labiaplasty to ease pelvic pain and medical problems such as frequent urination. 

Breast Plastic Surgeries 

Breast augmentation is the number one plastic surgery in the country and has been for several years running, but breast surgery encompasses a broader array of cosmetic and medical concerns. Our board-certified plastic surgeon offers the breast lift, breast reduction, breast augmentation, and male breast reduction for men who struggle with gynecomastia. 

Facial Plastic Surgeries 

Men and women choose facial plastic surgery for many reasons, from addressing volume loss and deep wrinkles to restoring drooping eyelids and an asymmetrical nose. There’s likely a face procedure that will help reach your cosmetic goals. We offer the facelift, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), brow lift, and rhinoplasty.
