After a facelift, necklift, chin implant, or submental liposuction, it is common to have bruising and swelling that can last anywhere from 1 to 3 weeks. Since most people feel well enough to be up and about well before that happens, I often suggest that my patients choose a stylish scarf or high-collared shirt to help them elegantly conceal signs of surgery. Perhaps this is one reason why there is a surge in these procedures in the fall and winter-- in time for perfect scarf weather.
My all time favorite scarves are the beautiful silk printed ones from Hermes. Coincidentally, the fashion mavens at Hermes have just launched an iPhone app to help chic scarf wearers everywhere figure out how to tie their scarves. Double wrap, side knot, draped as a headband, fashioned into a blouse-- the possibilities are endless.
