Face Lift Before the Holidays

Now that Thanksgiving is here, you might be looking forward to the winter holidays with either excitement or trepidation. Everyone has their own feelings about seeing family over the holidays. If you want to look your best and be ready to wow your friends, family, and acquaintances at a holiday party, you might consider a face lift in the near future.

There Is Still Time

The total recovery time for a face lift is about two to four weeks. Your face will look fabulous after two weeks, but you may be instructed to wait four weeks before resuming normal activity. Still, if you schedule your face lift within the next week or two, you will have ample time to recover before the Christmas parties start.

The Most Effective Anti-Aging Treatment

There are a lot of nonsurgical anti-aging treatments available, but none of them have the same effect as a face lift. With a face lift, your skin will be pulled and tightened, eliminating wrinkles and fine lines, as well as eliminating sagging or excess skin. While dermal fillers can help minimize lines and wrinkles, they do nothing for tightening the skin of the face.

Outpatient and Simple

The face lift surgery is a fairly simple and straightforward procedure. Your surgeon will discuss your needs and desires for your end outcome, and he or she will go into the surgery knowing exactly what incisions to make to give you the results you are looking for. The procedure is usually done on an outpatient basis. And although you will have some bruising and swelling in the first few days to a week, within two weeks you will have the look you were going for.

If you are interested in having a face lift before your holiday party or event, contact us today to schedule your consultation.
