Plastic surgery is in high demand throughout the year, but the holidays represent an especially opportune timing for having facelift surgery. If you’ve been dreaming of taking years off your appearance with professional facial rejuvenation, here are our top four reasons you might want to consider having it done during the holiday season.
1. Less Exposure to Damaging UV Rays
In the winter, the shorter days and colder temperatures cause most of us to spend more time indoors. In general, Dr. Schmidt advises facelift patients to stay out of the sunlight as much as possible because exposure to the sun’s rays can delay your recovery and affect your results by causing more swelling and scarring. Staying home for a comfortable recovery during the winter will lead to a more natural, well-rested appearance.
2. More Downtime
When planning a plastic surgery procedure, many people struggle with the recovery time that accompanies it. Hectic work schedules combine with family responsibilities to make us feel stretched impossibly thin. However, depending on the nature of your job, you may have more built-in free time around the holidays.
Companies often close their offices for a week or more to give their employees the opportunity to enjoy celebrating with friends and family, and you could take advantage of that to fully focus on your healing process. You don’t have to feel rushed or hurried, and you’ll return to work refreshed and recharged to tackle any challenge.
3. A Fresh Start for the Year Ahead
It’s common to ring in a new year by making resolutions, which usually take the form of planning self-improvement strategies. Instead of setting these goals and feeling disappointed when you struggle to stick to them, celebrate the end of 2020 and the beginning of 2021 by turning back the clock on your appearance and giving yourself a much-needed self-confidence boost.
4. The Opportunity to Treat Yourself
You spend so much of your time taking care of other people’s needs. This holiday season, prioritize giving yourself the gift of aging more gracefully. You can retain all the wisdom and life experience that come with getting older, but leave behind the wrinkles and sagging skin that accompany the aging experience. When you gift a facelift to yourself, you will love the way you look and feel.
