I would get the procedure when you have the time to recover.

The best time for you would probably be during the summer, when you have a few weeks that you will not need to be sitting in class. You should avoid sitting after this procedure for at least a couple of weeks to avoid putting pressure on the fat cells in order to maximize their survival.
Thank you for your question. It all comes down to the patient's personal preference. Since you are a student, it would be best to do it over break (summer). In addition, the fall and winter months are also some of the best months to have surgery. Please be sure to find an experienced and board certified plastic surgeon.
I treat a lot of students. They often do it on break. Early June is a good idea for many because it gives them a lot of time to heal. But, I do a lot of surgery in early August for the same reason. It is a patient's personal choice on the timing.
