The holiday season is a few months away, and you may start to sweat this highly social time of year if you’re unhappy with changes to your face and body. For many, the holidays are the only time they see certain family and friends, increasing the pressure to look and feel their best at get-togethers.
The end of summer and early fall is the perfect time to schedule plastic surgery or cosmetic treatments so you’re healed in time to show off your results in that photo that will live on many refrigerators for the following year.
Dr. Donald Hause is a board-certified plastic surgeon who has helped many patients achieve their ideal look with surgical and non-surgical procedures.
Why Have Plastic Surgery in Early Fall
Face, breast and body procedures require longer recovery than non-surgical treatments, such as injectables or lasers. Most plastic surgery patients need to stay home to heal for one to two weeks, with activity limitations for six weeks. Results will settle in around this time and improve in the coming months. Early fall is the ideal time of year for these procedures because the weather is cooler, there are fewer social obligations than in the summer and it’s less conspicuous to spend time indoors.
You can recover in time for your big family gathering over the holidays. While your results may still be improving, the initial healing will reveal your more youthful appearance or thinner figure.
Plastic Surgery Options at Sacramento Aesthetic Surgery
There are several factors to consider when looking into your surgical options to address cosmetic concerns, such as your anatomy, medical history, surgical details and required recovery. Dr. Hause will discuss your options and recommend the best approach to reach your desired appearance. If you have a special holiday event coming up where you’d like to look your best, go over the timeline with Dr. Hause to ensure you recover in time.
