Irvine Plastic Surgeon Says ‘Tis The Season For Facial Rejuvenation
Fall and Winter months are perhaps the best time of year for cosmetic facial procedures according to Dr. Ali Sepehr
Irvine, CA – Dr. Ali Sepehr is a board-certified Orange County facial plastic surgeon committed to delivering rejuvenated, natural-looking results for his patients. At The OC Center for Facial Plastic Surgery, his private practice, Dr. Sepehr offers procedures both surgical and nonsurgical year-round. However, Dr. Sepehr believes the fall and winter seasons can be the ideal time for facial plastic surgery.
After certain facial surgeries, Dr. Sepehr stresses to his patients the importance of protecting their skin from sun exposure. The fall and winter seasons offer increased sun protection due to shorter daylight hours and a decrease in the sun’s intensity.
At The OC Center for Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Sepehr reports that popular fall and winter procedures include:
- Eyelid Surgery
- Brow Lift
- SmartSkin™ Laser Skin Resurfacing
In addition to the benefit of decreased sun exposure, some patients use holiday vacation time as an opportunity for postoperative recovery and rest. Dr. Sepehr also notes that many patients come into the office right before the holidays for BOTOX® injections and dermal fillers to prepare for the holiday party season.
Regarding which procedure he considers the most advantageous to have during the fall or winter, Dr. Sepehr says: “Of any other procedure, it makes most sense to save laser skin resurfacing for the winter time because it is more important to avoid the sun after laser skin resurfacing than, for example, Rhinoplasty, Facelift, Eyelid Surgery, and Brow Lift.”
While Dr. Sepehr encourages his Orange County facial plastic surgery patients to take into account the timing of their surgery, he also stresses the importance of choosing a well-trained, board-certified plastic surgeon. When possible, he suggests seeking a surgeon who is specifically trained in facial plastic surgery to ensure the patient receives the highest quality of care.
