Tummy Tuck with Cold
It’s a common misconception that the body should be at room temperature for surgery. In reality, it’s best to have your body temperature slightly colder than normal. This allows for the best surgical outcomes and most comfortable experience.
If you’re getting a tummy tuck, you may be wondering about how to prepare your body for surgery. There are many things you can do to help ensure that your surgery goes smoothly and that you recover quickly from the procedure.
As I sit here in my office on a cold winter day, I am thinking about how much I hate the cold. It’s not just that it’s cold outside—it’s that it’s cold inside, too! When it’s cold outside, at least you can bundle up and stay warm. But when it’s cold inside, there’s no way to escape. You can bundle up with blankets and sweaters, but that doesn’t really help a whole lot.
So today I thought: Why not try to find some ways to stay warm without having to resort to blankets or sweaters?
To me, that means food! Food is one of our most basic forms of comfort in times of distress—and while there are plenty of ways to make yourself feel better using food (like cooking or baking), sometimes all you want is something simple and quick.
That’s why I decided to write this blog post about some quick and easy recipes for tummy tucks that will keep you warm during the long winter months ahead!

The procedure of a tummy tuck is not just about getting rid of fat. In fact, it’s more complicated than that. The real goal of a tummy tuck is to remove excess skin and tighten the muscles around your stomach so that it looks flatter and more appealing. With this procedure, you’ll be able to see your abs again. If you’re considering a tummy tuck, here are some factors that will help you make the right decision:
-Your health condition: Tummy tucks aren’t for everyone. Make sure you’re in good enough health before going through with the procedure, as there are risks involved with any type of surgery (such as infection). If you have other medical conditions like diabetes or heart disease, talk to your doctor before scheduling your surgery.
-Your expectations: Be realistic about what kind of results can be expected from this surgery. You may not experience dramatic results right away; instead, it may take several months or even years for your body to fully recover from surgery—but don’t let this discourage you! Focus on taking good care of yourself post-surgery so that you can get back into shape as soon as possible!
What if I Get a Cold Before My Plastic Surgery Procedure?
Many people opt to undergo plastic surgery during the winter and spring months, since this typically offers enough time to recover before the busy summer months arrive. Unfortunately, this is also the end of the cold and flu season, which can make patients nervous when they have surgery scheduled. The decision of whether or not your cosmetic surgery will need to be postponed due to sickness will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
In general, if you have mild cold symptoms, you most likely will not need to cancel your surgery date. However, if you have a cosmetic procedure scheduled at Parva Plastic Surgery, the best way for you to know is to contact our office so one of our clinical staff can discuss your symptoms. A mild sore throat or runny nose are typically not cause for concern, but swollen tonsils or a sinus infection are usually signs that you will need to reschedule your surgery. In addition, a mild cough isn’t necessarily an issue, but a more persistent cough can cause strain and additional pain if you are undergoing a procedure like breast augmentation or tummy tuck surgery.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic is still in effect, this adds another layer to consider before deciding whether you are well enough to undergo surgery. If you have any cold or flu-like symptoms—such as moderate-to-severe throat soreness, sinus congestion, or a fever—your surgery will likely be rescheduled until symptoms subside. Patients will be required to get tested for COVID-19 to ensure they do not have this highly contagious coronavirus. This is for your safety, as well as the health of our staff and other patients.
