Summer is made for outdoor activities, vacations and events. But as the weather begins to cool down, you may be inclined to stay indoors more often. And if you’ve been considering cosmetic surgery, such as a facelift, this newfound downtime before the snow flies is an ideal time to make it happen. Here’s why scheduling a facelift in the fall can be a great option.
It’s important to recover properly to reap the rewards of your facelift surgery. This can be better achieved during the fall when you don’t feel like you’re missing out on any of the outdoor fun. The cooler weather also makes you want to curl up in a warm blanket and a good movie, which is perfect for your recovery.
With cooler temperatures come a change in fashion. No more tank tops and swim trunks. It’s time to break out the scarves, hats, long pants and sweaters. Wearing these items makes it much easier to cloak your scars and swelling as you recover.
Not as Much Sun
Direct sunlight isn’t good for your skin following a facelift, as it can cause you to burn more and interfere with proper healing. With the days getting shorter in the fall, you’ll be able to enjoy being outside more after the sun goes down (but while it’s still early) than you could in the summertime.
Prep for the Holidays
Recovering from a facelift gives you some much needed downtime before the holidays are in full swing. What’s more, once you’ve healed, your enhanced appearance will help you feel more confident at get-together with family and friends.
Recovery time from a facelift is essential to the overall success of the procedure. When you schedule your facelift during the fall, when recovery time is optimal, you’re giving yourself a good chance of healing successfully and safely.
