There’s nothing more exciting than saying yes to a proposal and planning the wedding you’ve been dreaming of your entire life. Of course, you want to look your best on your big day, as do your bridesmaids, the groom and groomsmen, and even family members like parents and siblings who are surely going to make an appearance in your timeless wedding photos.Hitting the gym, watching your diet, and working in some calming meditation each day are all great options to get yourself looking wedding-ready, but you might be looking for something more.
Whether your gym routine isn’t enough to dispel stubborn fat or you want to erase a few fine lines and wrinkles leading up to your special day, the right cosmetic surgery procedures can give you that extra boost you’re looking for.
You can even make a fun day of it with a bit of Botox or lip fillers with the mothers or the bridal party. Which treatments are the most popular with brides, grooms, and their entourage? Here are some of the best plastic surgery options to consider before you say “I do”.
Benefits of Cosmetic Surgery
When it comes to cosmetic surgery, people tend to think about how it improves appearance. While looking the way you want is a HUGE plus, there is a wide range of benefits that can impact both your physical and mental health.
Improved physical health is one of the most common benefits of plastic and cosmetic surgeries. For example, breast reductions decrease the discomfort of neck and back pain. Skin rejuvenation procedures such as chemical peels can help get rid of acne, and decrease redness, irritation, and any soreness caused by pesky pimples.
However, plastic surgery benefits don’t just impact your physical state. They can impact your mental state too. When you look good, you feel good. ‘Problem areas’ like excess fat or acne can make anyone feel self-conscious. However, cosmetic procedures are designed to make you feel confident in your own skin! Services such a lip augmentation or liposuction help you achieve the look you want, decreasing the negative self-talk about your body and increasing self-worth.
Wedding Plastic Surgery Options
There are plenty of surgical procedures designed to improve your appearance, but there is a handful best suited for the needs and desires of brides, grooms, and the rest of the bridal party. From rejuvenating facial care to body toning treatments, there is something to satisfy everyone.
If you want gorgeous, glowing skin in time for the upcoming wedding, there are a number of treatments to consider. While these options are available solo, the best results often require multiple treatment options.
About nine months out from your wedding, you might want to consider a chemical peel. Chemical peels can help to remove dead skin, stimulate new cell growth, and treat difficult acne issues, leaving you with glowing, refreshed skin.
Six months prior to the wedding is the perfect time for microneedling (aka. Vivace) and PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatments. These procedures stimulate collagen production, treating fine lines, wrinkles and improving skin tone and texture.
For the next few months before the wedding, it’s a good idea to stick to a gentle regimen of treatments such as the HydraFacial. This will keep your skin looking fresh and bright leading up to the big day.
It’s true that crow’s feet and laugh lines are signs of a happy life, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you want them on full display in your wedding photos. This is where injectables like Botox, Dysport, and baby Botox (or micro-Botox) treatments come in. Consider getting these treatments about 6 months before the wedding and scheduling a touch-up a couple of months out from the big day, if needed.
Kissable lips are vital on a wedding day, which is why lip injectables are a great option!
Restylane Kysse and Restylane Silk are ideal for anyone seeking natural-looking volume, flexible movement, and a full range of facial expressions, with results lasting up to a year. You might also consider safe, long-lasting silicone lip implants for more permanent enhancement.
Or you can go for the subtle appeal of a lip flip procedure. A little Botox or Dysport injected just above the upper lip can relax the muscle enough to cause your lip to flip slightly up and out, creating a fuller, plumper appearance.
Stubborn belly fat is the bane of many bride and grooms, but those who exercise regularly know that spot treating usually isn’t possible. Luckily, there are a couple of fast, non-invasive treatments to help you get the look a million crunches simply can’t produce.
SculpSure and CoolSculpting are both appealing treatments that offer incredible results with very little downtime. The first treatment eliminates fat with heat, while the second procedure freezes it.
In both cases, the body will flush away fat cells within a matter of weeks. However, you should expect to wait up to 12 weeks for your final results.
