Now that the summer season is finally ending, many are preparing to enjoy a quick break in traveling for vacation or playing host for visiting friends and family members before the winter holiday season gets underway. While both are filled with excellent memories, chances are they’re keeping you busy and leave you with little time to focus on your own health and wellbeing. If you’ve been putting facelift surgery on hold until you had the time to prepare and recover, fall may be the perfect season!
Schedule, Schedule, Schedule
If you’re going to invest the time and financial resources into a facelift surgery, you’ll want to visit the best surgeon you can. However, consultations and appointment slots can quickly book up as the weather warms and as patients get ready to see family and friends for the holidays. Rather than stress yourself out trying to schedule in any appointment you can with any surgeon during the busy season, use the fall lull to your advantage. Take the time you need to research top surgeons in your area and schedule consultations to meet with them one-on-one. Having the luxury of time will make a difference in your relationship with your surgeon and your final results.
Like any other plastic surgery, recovery plays an important role in the final results of your facelift process. Whereas getting enough uninterrupted rest can be challenging during the summer and winter, the fall season is fairly relaxed in terms of hectic holiday planning and travel. As facelifts can require up to a week of recovery at home, now is the excellent opportunity to take time off from work and sequester yourself into focusing on recovery. Busy professionals don’t need to worry about competing with colleagues in taking personal time off while parents have school to keep kids out of the house for the bulk of the day. Both scenarios make it more feasible to make important follow-up appointments as well as focus on healing.
Enjoy the Holidays
Planning on visiting family this holiday season? Why not show off a more youthful, invigorated appearance? Depending on the extent of your treatment, facelift recovery can be completed in as little as two to three weeks. With that in mind, it is possible for patients to start the treatment process and complete initial recovery by Thanksgiving. While there can be some minor swelling and bruising, the treatment results will be healed enough to be noticeable.
