Fall: The Best Season for Plastic Surgery
Posted on November, 16, 2023 by Dr. Paquet in Med Spa Procedures, Surgical Procedures,
If you’ve been considering plastic surgery, one thing you might not have thought of is when to schedule your procedure. There are many benefits to an autumn surgery, so if you’ve been waiting to make an appointment, now is a great opportunity. Here is what you need to know about the many benefits of scheduling your surgery in the fall.
Why Should You Have Plastic Surgery Done During Fall?
The colder weather is the perfect excuse to stay home and keep yourself comfortable while you recover. These are some additional benefits and reasons why fall is the perfect time to have plastic surgery:
Avoid the Heat
After surgery, it’s important to avoid the heat and sun exposure. High temperatures can increase inflammation, causing discomfort, and excess sun exposure can cause your scars to darken or heal improperly.
Results Before Summer
If you schedule your surgery during the fall, you will be fully healed before summer and your scars will have had time to fade. This means you can feel confident and put your best face forward at summer events and trips to the beach or pool.
Recovery Before the Holidays
During the holidays, you don’t want to miss out on time spent with family and friends. Scheduling your surgery in the fall gives you time to heal before the busy holiday season so that you can relax and enjoy the festivities.
Flexibility with Appointments
The end of winter and early spring are popular times to get plastic surgery. With more availability and a wide range of available appointment times, it will be easier for your doctor to accommodate your schedule.
Your Plastic Surgery Options at Paquet Facial Plastic Surgery
Dr. Christian Paquet is a board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and is among the country’s leading experts for facial plastic surgery. These are some of our most popular procedures that you might be considering this fall:
Facelift and Neck Lift
Natural aging leads to some undesirable effects, like sagging skin, a double chin, and wrinkles. A combined lower facelift and neck lift can effectively combat signs of aging on the jawline, chin, and neck to rejuvenate your youthful appearance with natural-looking results. Patients with severe amounts of excess fat on the neck and/or under the chin can also benefit from neck liposuction, alone or in combination with a facelift and neck lift. You should expect about two weeks of downtime after a facelift and neck procedure and about 4-6 weeks for full recovery.
Dr. Paquet is an expert in rhinoplasty (nose surgery) and revision rhinoplasty surgery. Rhinoplasty can improve a variety of concerns, including a dorsal hump, crooked nose, downturned tip, or an overly wide nose. At your consultation, Dr. Paquet will listen closely to your concerns and examine your nose to create an effective surgical plan. Depending on the extent of your individual procedure, patients should expect 1-2 weeks of downtime.
Blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift or eyelid surgery, has cosmetic and health benefits. During the procedure, excess skin and fat are removed from the upper or lower eyelids, or a combination of both areas. The goal is to improve the appearance of droopy eyes, heavy fat pads beneath the eyes, and wrinkling. Removal of sagging skin on the upper eyelids can also improve eyesight if the skin is obstructing a patient’s vision. Patients should expect 1-2 weeks of downtime and a few additional weeks of recovery.
Patients also have the option to combine multiple procedures into one surgery. Combination plastic surgery procedures can be incredibly beneficial because patients do not have to schedule multiple surgical appointments and they only have to undergo one recovery period. Dr. Paquet can discuss your options for a combined procedure at your consultation. He offers the above procedures and many more, including chin augmentation, buccal fat removal, lip lifts, and ear pinning surgery.
