Woman in winter, which is the best time to get a facial plastics procedure

Winter comes with many benefits. Not only is it the time for holidays and get-togethers with friends and family, but it can motivate you to accomplish goals as the new year approaches. If you’ve always wanted to have a facial plastic procedure like BOTOX or rhinoplasty, now might be your best chance.

Taking days off

Many businesses and workplaces offer paid leave time to their employees during the holidays. While facial plastic procedure can be outpatient in nature, you can use the time to your advantage without having to take time off. By planning your procedure strategically, you can use your upcoming holiday time to recover and heal.

FSA dollars

A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is an account that you can contribute tax-free money towards, which many employers adding contributions as well. This money can be used for many out-of-pocket medical procedures, including functional and cosmetic facial plastic surgeries. However, this money does not roll over into the new year, so using these FSA dollars by December 31st becomes very important in order to get the most out of your contributions. Scheduling your preferred facial treatments by the end of December can allow you to use your FSA dollars effectively to meet your goals.

Less time in the sun

Following both aesthetic surgical and non-surgical procedures, your skin may be sensitive to sun exposure. During hot, summer days, inflammation and swelling can become more pronounced and actually increase the amount of time it takes to fully recover. In the winter, sun exposure becomes much more limited due with shorter daylight hours and more time spent inside.

Dr. Neela Rao, a CEENTA facial plastics surgeon who provides services at our Fort Mill office, recommends this time of year for optimal results. "If you are contemplating an aesthetic procedure, the winter may be the perfect time. Particularly when it comes to laser or chemical peel resurfacing or surgical rejuvenation, decreased sun exposure and time off around the holidays may be an ideal time to recover. Furthermore, the new year could be exactly the motivation you need to commit to a well-balanced skin care routine or to finally schedule that consultation and discuss your goals with a professional."
