The holy city of Varanasi becomes more beautiful during the months of winter. With beautiful walks to the ghats, listening to mind-soothing Ganga aartis, Varanasi people surely knows how to enjoy winter. But did you know that the cooler months can also prove to be the best time for your operation?
Although there’s no specific time for performing operations, winter season is preferred by a good number of patients for any surgical treatment and even piercings.
Whether it’s general or laparoscopic surgery, the doctors prescribe the surgical procedure by taking certain parameters like the patient’s case history, his or her current condition, and other things into account.
Today, we are sharing with you a few reasons why you should consider cool winter months for your surgical treatment.
No Summer-related Problems
Summers in Varanasi are not so compassionate, as we have dry and humid summers, and we face strong and dry summer winds (called loo). Also, sunstrokes and heatstrokes are common summer problems faced by us.
Little To Moderate Sun Exposure
We often get our daily dose of Vitamin D during winters because the winter sun is warm and it has fewer chances of burning our skin. Surgical wounds are more likely to heal slower during summers as overexposure to the sun rays affects the healing of wounds. Surgical scars and wound heal more quickly during winter months.
Winters mean colder months and as we know, low temperatures amplify the healing and recovery process post-surgery. Not everyone has access to air-conditioning system and that makes winter season an ideal time for availing a surgery.
Better Protection To The Surgical Wounds
In winters, we wrap our bodies with multiple layers to feel warm. This also works well for surgical incisions as less expose our surgical wounds during winters without feeling hot, thus providing better protection to the post-surgical scars.
Starting The New Year With Good Health
A surgical procedure is overwhelming for the patient. If you have your laparoscopic surgery done during winters, of course, you’ll heal in no time and can welcome the new year with a big smile.
Happy And Enjoyable Summer
Getting your surgery performed during the cold season is best because it will let you enjoy your summer season without any trouble. Since you have dedicated the entire winter season for your post-surgery recovery, you do not have to worry about any surgery-related issues in summers.
An important thing to note is that just because winter season is considerable better for surgical treatment, it does not mean you should wait till winters in case of an urgent requirement for surgery.
