What is the best time of the year to have a hairline lowering procedure?

Question:
What is the best time of the year to have a hairline lowering procedure?  Going to the beach, swimming and sun exposure are concerns.

Answer:
There should be no problem with sun exposure affecting scarring or healing.  One should take the usual skin care precautions of using sun screen and perhaps have a head covering.  As a general rule, one should avoid excessive sun exposure whether having surgery or not.
