Why Summer May Be The Perfect Time For Cosmetic Surgery

Why Summer May Be The Perfect Time For Cosmetic Surgery

If you are a college student or a teacher and have been considering having a cosmetic procedure, this summer may be your perfect opportunity. Whether you are self-conscious about small or asymmetric breasts or are interested in slimming and refining your nose, time off from school will offer the time and privacy you need to recuperate.

Recovery Time

Any surgery will require a bit of rest and recovery. For students or teachers, summer usually offers a more flexible, relaxed schedule and will provide you with enough time to take it easy. While with breast augmentation the typical “down time” is about a week, other procedures may require a bit more R+R. Typically, the longer you allow yourself to really take time to recover, the better you will feel.


Many patients want to keep their cosmetic surgery private. Choosing to undergo a procedure during the summer months will give you time that you can be away from classmates or coworkers. Depending on how dramatic you want your results to be, you may find that people may not even realize that you had plastic surgery.

Things to Consider

After surgery, it is important that you are careful in the sun to protect your skin and any scars from being over-exposed. It is also important to note that it takes time for the final result of your procedure to be fully evident. During your in-person consultation, you can take time to discuss any questions you may have with your surgeon.

Women, Men and Plastic Surgeons have many choices when it comes to cosmetic surgery. The skill, experience, and willingness of your Plastic Surgeon to educate you about your choices is important. Our role is to provide patients with accurate and credible information and to help you choose the option that is most pleasing to you.

If you are interested in learning more about your options regarding any type of cosmetic surgery, it’s best to receive careful consultation of all options to help determine the appropriate course of treatment. Contact us today to meet with one of our skilled and experienced board-certified plastic surgeons to discuss which procedure may be best for you, or give us a call at 757-491-3535.

    Hands down this is the most amazing plastic surgery office! No haggling and Dr. Jacobs will not perform a surgery if the scar exceeds the benefit. His words exactly which is exactly what I want to know ahead of time not after the surgery is done. Dr. Jacobs is a phenomenal surgeon and I trust him 150%. Felecia his nurse is as wonderful as Dr. Jacobs!!

  • I visited Dr. Johnathan Jacob's Office to see about getting a Lipoma removed from my upper left shoulder. After meeting Dr. Jacob's he discussed with me what needed to be done to remove it. I was very happy with the surgery and how good a surgeon he is. I was very satisfied with the procedure and the outcome. I was happy with his staff also they took good care of me. ???

    Felicia is the absolute BEST. If you enjoy the feeling when people say, “You look too young to have a 19 year old.” Then book an appointment with Felicia immediately. She’s the sweetest human being on the planet and excellent at her job.
