Saying “I do” to your partner on your wedding day only happens once, and that fact adds even more pressure for your wedding to be perfect. Everything from the right dress to the seating chart gets scrutinized and stressed over. What you shouldn’t be worrying about on your big day is how you’re going to look in your photographs. E
Many women opt for a more permanent enhancement leading up to their wedding. This way they can enjoy the confidence boost for years to come. If you too desire a surgical procedure, it is important to plan ahead! Don’t make the mistake of not giving yourself enough time to heal from your procedure. The goal is for you to look radiant, not like you’re recovering. Most surgical procedures require about two months of recovery time and between six and eight months for all swelling to subside. The most common surgical bridal enhancements include:
- Breast Augmentation – Implants are used to increase the size and correct the shape of the breasts. Many brides want to feel not only attractive but also seductive on their wedding day. Enlarging the breasts helps them better fill out their wedding gown.
- Liposuction – Removes unwanted fat deposits from areas such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, and back. Brides often choose to diet and exercise leading up to the wedding in order to look their best. However, no matter how hard they try, stubborn fat often remains. Ridding the body of undesirable fat slims down your figure so you look amazing in your dress on your wedding day (and out of it on your wedding night).
- Tummy Tuck – Removes excess tissue around the abdomen and tightens the abdominal muscles. Many brides undergo major weight loss leading up to their big day. Eliminating excess skin and tightening the abdominal muscles to tone the tummy will have you looking stunning in no time.
- Rhinoplasty – Corrects the size and shape of the nose. Some brides use their wedding as a motivator to fix their less than desirable noses. For many women, nose surgery gives them the confidence in their appearance that will last far beyond their wedding day.
Many women also seek non-surgical skin treatments to highlight their existing beauty on their wedding day. These procedures usually center around skin treatments that help you achieve a beautiful wedding-day glow. It is important to remember that timing is everything with non-surgical treatments. If you undergo one too early, subsequent signs of aging may appear before your big day. If it’s performed too late, your skin may appear red, blotchy, flaky, or swollen on your wedding day. That’s a nightmare no bride should have to deal with. Common non-surgical treatments include:
- BOTOX® Cosmetic – Helps relax the facial muscles to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Eliminate those worry lines you gathered throughout all that stressful planning. You can achieve smoother skin that will have you looking radiant and stress-free in your wedding photos.
- JUVÉDERM® – A common filler used to erase wrinkles and fine lines from areas of the lower face. Many brides also use JUVÉDERM® to fill their lips for lip augmentation. This lip enhancement treatment can give you perfectly kissable lips for your big “kiss the bride” moment.
- Laser Treatments – These can treat anything from skin irregularities to unwanted hair. Most brides utilize laser treatment for tighter skin, to eliminate facial redness or dark spots, and to remove unwanted hair. Certain laser treatments can also provide non-invasive fat reduction and help you achieve a more toned body contour. You’ll look stunning on the big day after utilizing laser treatments.
- Microdermabrasion – Rids your complexion of dulling dirt, oil, and dead skin cells. This treatment revitalizes the skin to help you achieve a radiant wedding-day glow.
