Summertime surgery at Dr. Iteld

For some, summertime surgery fits perfectly into their schedules. If you have time off and time to heal, this may be the ideal time for you to have the surgery you’ve been wanting but kept putting off. We have lots of options for you.

Popular Summertime Surgery Procedures

The most popular plastic surgical procedures performed during the summer include:

  • Breast Augmentation: This is more than just about what implants to use; it’s about customizing the procedure to what you want, as well as your body type. We work with every patient to plan for the most aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting results.

Recovery time:  3 – 7 days and 2 – 4 weeks for strenuous activity.

  • Tummy Tuck:  This is a great way to improve the appearance of excess abdominal fat, skin and tissue in healthy men and women.

Recovery time: 6– 8 weeks for strenuous activity.

  • Blepharoplasty: Eyelid surgery improves the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. My goal is to restore a rejuvenated appearance to the surrounding area of your eyes, making you look more rested and alert.

Recovery time:  7 – 10 days for initial swelling.

And more

The above are but a few of the popular summer surgeries I perform. If now is the right time for you to have surgery, speak with us and schedule your procedure. You’ll have the time you need to recover and look great when you go back to school, work or whatever plans you have for the fall.

So, if  you think summertime surgery is right for you, it’s a great time to call us!
