What time of the year is best to get liposuction done? Dr. Joel Schlessinger shares.Liposuction is a surgery that is performed to remove unwanted localized deposits of fat cells from the body. The procedure performed at Skin Specialists, PC is meant to aid in body contouring and removing areas that have had difficulty responding to exercise and diet. This effective and safe procedure can give tremendous results, however it can take some time to heal. We asked Dr. Joel Schlessinger what time of the year is the best to get liposuction done.

“Winter and spring are our busiest seasons,” Dr. Joel Schlessinger said. “Our patients wear a garment for 30 days after the procedure, which makes it challenging to do during the summer or if a trip that involves water activities is planned.”

For best results, Dr. Joel Schlessinger says you should be fully recovered and the garment should be completely off by the time you want to be in water. For this reason, it is best to have the procedure performed in the winter or spring when there is little chance that you will be around water.

“We see a huge influx of patients for liposuction procedures around late winter and early spring. They are always trying to get ready for summer, so it is best to schedule early if you wish to avoid running into the summer during recovery time.”

The procedure performed at Skin Specialists, PC is not intended to treat obesity. Learn more information about the difference between a tummy tuck and liposuction here.
