Don’t Hide Your Nose This Fall!

At Riverview Facial Plastic Surgery we understand that having a less than ideal shape to your nose can cause a bit of discomfort, but the fall season is the best time to have your rhinoplasty. We get questions like this all the time about best treatment times that will cover recovery and all the aspects that will make it seamless. We always tell our patients that while it’s a nice idea to have this surgery during the summer, if you have the time, we think the fall is the best part of the year to look into rhinoplasty because you don’t have to hide your nose! While everyone else is distracted by their holiday plans, you’re making surgical plans that will wow them once you’re done.But why specifically do we recommend the fall for plastic surgery involving the nose instead of any other time during the year?

Why it’s a Great Time to Get a Rhinoplasty in the Fall

Fall is the time for a change, and big changes happen here such as the weather and the holidays.All of these things are a big distraction for people everywhere which means it’s time for you to make your big decision to do rhinoplasty. There’s never been a more convenient time for some of our busiest clients to get the most out of their end of the year goals. Fall is a great time to get rhinoplasty because of the following:


The holidays are coming, which means you’ll have that time off already for the holidays, and this is a gift in itself. Most people that work steady, full-time jobs and have big responsibilities don’t want to take extra time off of work because they want to take advantage of the real vacations they’ve been dreaming. No one wants to spend their time in surgery and recovery if there are al-ready some days scheduled for the holidays you can use.

Recovery for rhinoplasty surgery usually takes about seven days to reduce swelling and bruising as well as a reduction in bandage use and draining of fluids in the nose. The traditional week is when we clear our patients to return to work, but with the standard holiday vacation time often being two weeks or so, this is the best time to see the best look to the post-surgical nose. You’ll have enough time to relax and recover comfortably without feeling stressed or that you’re using up vacation time you’ve worked so hard for over the year.

How it Can Affect Your Self-Confidence Seeing Your Family at Upcoming Holidays

It’s one thing to send out blank holiday cards with stock cartoons on them, but when your family is all about the family portrait, you want to look your best for it. When you have your rhinoplasty in the fall and have that recovery time to relax and recuperate, there’s also time to adjust to your new look and establish your comfort levels with your appearance. Your self-confidence will start to make itself known as you adjust and see the look you’ve always wanted in the mirror. When it comes to winter and all the parties to follow, especially the New Year, you’ll be ready to face the mall with a lovely glow about you.

Whenever we plan out these surgical procedures at Riverview Facial Plastic Surgery with our clients, we want to make sure these procedures are done for the right reasons. We know that surgery is an emotional decision that our clients make, whatever the reason. During this time we talk through this choice because at the end of the day, while it will enhance your physical appearance, we have to do these things for ourselves. Think of a rhinoplasty as a personal gift to yourself to express self-love and care. Call Riverview today at 651-493-8501 to start planning, because the time is now.

Your Turtlenecks are Now a Thing of the Past

Before you run out and shop for turtlenecks for the next few hours, maybe it’s about time you think about why you need them. The reason most people hope to cover up their neck and chest area is that of the discomfort found in the look of at turkey neck. Don’t worry, we’re not judging you—we understand the concern.Turkey necks aren’t something we want to show off during the fall and winter seasons. As a matter of fact, turtlenecks may not be in this season at all, and you might not need them if you tend to the issue of your neck as soon as possible.Your turtlenecks are now a thing of the past and why not, we’ve got the perfect solution for you at Riverview Facial Plastic Surgery.

Our patients no longer worry about turtlenecks come the holidays because they know we’ve got their back with gorgeous neck treatments and minimally invasive procedures that help you remove fat around the neck area and excess skin. Not only do we remove the fat, but there are other perks to neck liposuction surgery and we’ll share them with you. Are you ready to experience a world free of turtle-necks? We are.

Neck Liposuction

Our solution to extra fat in the neck area is to remove it via a little process we love, called liposuction. Liposuction excises unwanted fat from the neck that sits around and creates banding of the neck skin so that it starts to hand down and become loose. It happens to everyone since the skin in the neck becomes thinner as we age and where muscle used to hold it all together, fat cells have made their way in that space.

Neck liposuction at Riverview Facial Plastic Surgery is done by drawing out the areas we want to remove the fat and then creating a plan to remove it in our clinic using a small cannula that will suck all these cells out of the neck. Once the fat is removed, we can set to work on tightening the excess skin. The skin is then cutaway in excess, and we can contour the neckline to reflect the new you without the turkey neck!

Benefits of Neck Liposuction:

  • Reasonable recovery time
  • Tightens the skin in the neck
  • Remove excess fat
  • Contour the neckline
  • Immediate results

Prepare for the Holidays with Neck Lipo

This is a minimally invasive procedure that is perfect for the fall since no one will know you’ve had it done. We perform the most natural looking neck liposuction treatments since we know how sensitive the area is and how great you want it to look. As you approach the holidays, we recommend about one to two weeks of time off to recovery but be ready to wow everyone at your holiday parties. So throw out the turtleneck idea and get yourself a brand new wardrobe because it is time to embrace the new look you’re going to love. Our patients are amazed to find how much this procedure actually changes the look of your face and the rest of your body in proportion to the neck. The neck is a central focus point that you can be proud of once your short recovery is through.
