Over time, it’s natural to see a changed face when you look in the mirror. Time, gravity, sunlight, stress, and other factors take their toll — often causing loose and sagging facial skin and a more tired appearance. If you look in the mirror and would like to see a firmer face to match your inner youthfulness, getting a face and neck lift this winter may be a great option for you.
In fact, did you know that winter is an excellent time of year for a rejuvenating face lift? Here’s why:
Enjoy the Cooler Weather
Why choose a chilly season for a face and neck lift procedure? Recovery can be more pleasant during cool weather, since an important step after surgery is wearing a facial compression garment for a few weeks — something more likely to irritate you on hot days than it will during winter.
Maximize the Holidays & Any Paid Time Off
If you’re concerned about coordinating a procedure with your work life, another reason winter may be a great choice is that you’re already planning to take time off for the holidays. Healing from a face lift requires significant downtime. So why not schedule your surgery when any paid time off during the holidays can also count towards your recovery time?
