It’s never too early to prepare for the holiday season, especially if you’re considering plastic surgery. If you’re dreading the thought of taking family photos during the holidays because you’re lacking confidence in your facial skin, look no further. Give yourself an early gift for the holidays by treating yourself to facial plastic surgery in Fort Lauderdale with Dr. Zoran.
When to Get a Facelift
There’s no bad time to get a facelift; however, the holidays enable men and women the time off to recovery from their facial procedure in comfort. Facelift procedures are great for patients who prefer a more natural look in comparison to dermal fillers.
The end of the year is one of the most popular times for plastic surgery. At our center for cosmetic surgery in Fort Lauderdale, we tend to see a spike in people scheduling procedures as people spend more time inside their cozy homes wearing layers and having the time for recovery from surgery.
Facelift Before and After
A facelift procedure involves tightening the deep later of facial and neck muscles and fat compartments, as well as re-draping the overlying skin. It also involves removing fat deposits that create jowls and sit under the skin.
Preparing for a Facelift During the Holidays
In preparing for a facelift, you will need to schedule a consultation and medical evaluation to make sure you’re in good health standing. If your plastic surgeon requires you to do so, make sure you are taking the proper medications and applying the required products to your facial skin preoperatively. Your surgeon will also suggest you halt all smoking and use of anti-inflammatory drugs. You must arrange for a friend or family member to drive you to and from surgery.
After a Facelift Procedure
You will need to arrange for a family member or friend to stay with you for a day or two during your facelift recovery. You will be given specific instructions on how to care for the surgical site, which medications to apply or take orally, specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health, as well as a time to follow up with your plastic surgeon.
Take Advantage of the Time Off During the Holiday Season
If you’re allowed significant time off during the holidays, this will be the best time to get a facelift. You could be the perfect candidate if you are a healthy person who wants to look younger and more rejuvenated before, during, and after the holiday season.
