The sun is shining, the flowers are blooming, the beach is calling your name. Summer is almost here! Everyone is slowly venturing outside to bask in the beautiful weather. But, if the gloomy days of the colder months left you feeling a little lackluster and in need of a refresh, especially in the looks department, you’re not alone. Particularly when it comes to our faces, the part of us we cannot hide, re-energizing our appearance can do wonders for our inner state-of-mind. For a long-lasting, effective facial rejuvenation, a summer facelift may be the ideal solution (and the ideal season) to restore that youthful glow you desire. The results can be enjoyed immediately, following a brief recovery, and for years to come. Let’s explore what makes the summertime the perfect time to put your best face(lift) forward.
The Best Season For A Facelift
If you’ve been thinking about getting a facelift, you may be asking what is the best season of the year to get this procedure? Well, what is the best time to feel beautiful, refreshed, and rejuvenated? The best time can be said to be whenever you feel you’re ready to move forward with this life-changing step in your self-care journey. If you’re looking in the mirror and noticing facial changes that make you unhappy with your appearance, when the outside no longer matches the inside, it may be worth considering what a facelift procedure can do for you. When choosing the right time, keep in mind that every season of the year has its benefits for getting a facelift and summer has its own advantages. If you’re worried how the warm weather will impact your recovery, level of comfort, and post-operative attire, the following reasons to get a facelift in the summer will give you some inspiration.
A Cool, Comfortable Recovery
Don’t let the hot temperature outside discourage you from getting a facelift. Summertime is a great time to get a facelift because the warmer weather allows for a comfortable indoor recovery. During the recovery process, patients are advised to avoid exposure to direct sunlight and heat. As a bonus, staying out of the sun can also prevent sun spots and premature aging of the skin. In the summer, patients can comfortably stay inside and recuperate in a cool air-conditioned environment, which can make the healing process more pleasant. This means that you can focus on resting and healing without worrying about the discomfort of heat or sweating. Whenever you do go outside, taking a convenient air-conditioned cab ride to your next indoor destination also thankfully means limited time in the summer hotness.
A Vacation For The Sake Of Beauty
Summer vacation can provide the perfect (and discreet) opportunity for patients to get a facelift surgery. Patients can take time off from work and use the summer vacation period to recover from their procedure. This can help reduce the stress and pressure associated with trying to balance work with the demands of recovery. If you work from home, you already have the added perk of staying inside longer to heal. If you’re going back to the office, most modern buildings will likely have the air conditioning in full force. Wearing your hair down, using some cover-up makeup and a little imaginative styling, like a beautiful silk scarf, can help conceal any residual signs of surgery. Here are a few of our own helpful tips for fashioning your facelift.
Getting Ahead Of The Holidays
Time seems to go so quickly and with our busy lives, the holidays have a tendency to sneak up on us when we’ve forgotten all about them. The holiday season is a time when everyone wants to look their best and feel confident in their appearance for all those gatherings and parties. Getting a facelift during the summer months will give you ample time to heal and recover before the festivities of fall and winter. This means that you can enjoy the holidays with family and friends without worrying about post-surgery bruising or swelling. You’ll have everyone at your office Christmas celebration noticing your new-found sparkle!
So, have you decided to go ahead with your summer facelift? The benefits are considerable. Why not take advantage of the summer months and start enjoying feeling great about your youthful, refreshed look right now.
