Protecting Your Face in Summer

New York NY Facial Plastic Surgeon

Choosing to have cosmetic surgery is a big decision for most people. Willingly going “under the knife” to improve your appearance is a decision the requires guts, time, and money. While most cosmetic surgery patients are committed to taking special care of their skin immediately following surgery, they often tend to slack off on taking care of their skin once the healing process is complete. This decision can be an extremely costly one, undoing the achievements that you made through surgery to improve your appearance. During the summer months, it is especially important that you protect your skin, specifically the skin of your face, in order to protect the investment that you have made through cosmetic surgery.

It is continually important to protect any skin that has received surgery in order to worsen the appearance of scars. Exposing the skin to prolonged sunlight after a cosmetic procedure can lead to spotty and abnormal pigmentation, darkening of the skin, and other unwanted effects. While it is best to limit all sun exposure for several weeks following cosmetic surgery, taking the steps to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays continually will help the achievements you made through plastic surgery last longer.

Even after wounds have healed and scars have faded, it is always, always, always important to protect your skin. Prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause the skin to show earlier signs of aging. For those who have invested in a face lift or facial rejuvenation procedures, the last thing you want is to have wrinkles and freckles begin to reappear on your face from too much sun. Wearing sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher is essential. Making sunscreen application a natural part of your daily routine can help to protect your delicate facial skin from sunlight.

Dr. Maurice Khosh wants to encourage you to make sunscreen a natural part of your daily routine. Protecting your skin is essential in helping it to look its best for years to come. During the summer months, when the sun’s rays are the most dangerous, it is important to remember to apply and reapply sunscreen daily. For those who have chosen to enhance their appearance through cosmetic surgery or other cosmetic procedures, protecting your achievements should be a priority. To schedule your cosmetic surgery consultation, contact Dr. Khosh in Manhattan today.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say


Based on 174 reviews

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results
Kaitlin M.
Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Joann M.
After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.
Leah G.
Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.
Frieda S.
i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
