Winter Is the Best Time for Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) — Here’s Why

Winter is the best time for eyelid surgery at our cosmetic surgery practice in Ann Arbor. One of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the U.S. year after year, eyelid surgery restores youthfulness to your eyes and creates a more open, awake expression. If you’re like many people who have noticed drooping or puffy eyes during Zoom calls, now may be the perfect time to pursue your transformation and schedule your surgery for the upcoming winter months. 

It’s the perfect time for a staycation. 

Eyelid surgery typically requires 1 to 2 weeks of downtime, and winter is the perfect time to bundle up and recover indoors. Time away from work during the winter holidays may also make it easier to take a few days off, especially if you’re working remotely. 

You’ll have limited sun exposure. 

Keeping incisions protected from UV exposure is an essential part of recovery, and less time spent outdoors means less time in the sun. The more you keep your incisions protected (including wearing SPF if you do step outside), the less visible they will be once healed. As the American Society of Plastic Surgery reports, laser treatments are also especially popular in the winter for the same reason—limiting post-treatment sun exposure is a must. 

Virtual consultations keep winter commuting to a minimum. 

Don’t worry about trudging through the snow to get to your appointment. With virtual consultations offered at CPRSAA, you can meet with a board-certified plastic surgeon from the comfort and warmth of your own home. Virtual consultations make it easier than ever to meet one-on-one with your surgeon to discuss your treatment plan and conduct post-surgery follow-ups from home. 

When you have surgery at CPRSAA, you also benefit from having your procedure done in the only on-site surgical suite of its kind in the area. Instead of driving upwards of an hour away to a new facility, you’ll have your surgery done right here on our Ann Arbor campus. This cuts down on travel even more, keeping you out of the winter snow and rain as much as possible. 

You’ll start spring with fresh eyes.

Blepharoplasty results in a natural-looking, more awake appearance—the perfect way to step back out into society after hiding away during winter. You’ll still look like you, just younger, more refreshed, and ready to take on whatever the new season brings with confidence. To see more examples of the results you can expect after eyelid surgery, please visit our before-and-after photo gallery.
