Looking for a gift that keeps on giving? Schedule a facelift for yourself at our Kalispell, MT, plastic surgery practice this winter. Getting facelift surgery around the holidays makes a lot of sense. And the results last for years, giving you a more youthful appearance that matches how you feel.
You might think the hectic holiday season is an inconvenient time to recover following a facelift, but the benefits are really worth it. I’ll describe the advantages of scheduling facelift surgery in this blog post and explain why it’s important to spend extra time indoors after your procedure.
Why Winter Is “Facial Plastic Surgery Season”
It’s Easier to Avoid the Sun
After getting a facelift it’s extremely important to remain out of the sun while the skin heals. A main reason to stay out of the sun is that UV rays can darken scars. Having a facelift during the cold winter months makes avoiding the sun much easier, as people tend to stay inside more during the winter as a matter of course. Your facelift recovery is the ideal excuse for curling up and enjoying some cozy days inside during the frigid Montana winter.
Take Advantage of Holiday Time Off
If you only get a limited number of vacation days off from work, it can be discouraging to use some of them to recover from a facelift. Most people, though, get additional time off during the holidays, so this might be the ideal time to schedule your facelift without having to use up precious vacation days. An added bonus: By using holiday vacation days, you won’t need to explain to your boss why you need the time off. When you do return to work after the holidays, expect to hear people compliment you on how you look “rested” and “refreshed” by the break.
New Year, New You Is True!
Making significant personal changes is common as we enter a new year, and it’s important to recognize the signs that you’re emotionally and physically ready for a facelift. A facelift around the holidays can give you renewed confidence heading into a new year and will have you looking forward to next year’s holiday photos.
The recovery following a facelift includes both physical healing and developing a level of comfort about going out in public. Most patients heal physically rather quickly but aren’t ready for social engagements for a few more weeks. Rest assured, however, that if you get a facelift in December or January, you’ll heal in time to feel great about hitting the slopes later in the season during prime powder conditions. So let it snow!
