Any future bride or groom knows that a lot of planning goes into a wedding. With the prevalence of social media, plus the desire to look the best on their wedding day, many men and women opt for cosmetic surgery procedures before they walk down the aisle. Here are a few cosmetic surgery procedures that both men and women undergo before their big day.
Face Lifts/Facial Procedures
Older men and women may have the desire to look more youthful on their perfect day. For them, there are a few options available to them. There are full-on face lifts, where excess skin, muscle, and fat is tightened by the surgeon. Other facial cosmetic surgery procedures that a bride or groom can undergo before their big day include blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), rhinoplasty (nose job), and forehead contouring surgery. These types of procedures are more invasive than injectables and fillers, so any bride or groom who is thinking of undergoing these procedures should allow time for the recovery process before their wedding day.
Fillers and Injectables
Injectables and fillers are a good option for men and women who do not want to undergo a more invasive procedure, but would like to have a youthful appearance on their wedding day. These procedures help rejuvenate the patient’s face and smooths out the lines. Those brides or grooms who are thinking of getting injectables or fillers should get them done a couple of weeks before the big day. This is to allow any swelling or bruising to go down in the days before the wedding. Getting these procedures a couple of weeks before the event also allows for any needed touch-ups to be performed without the alarming redness.
Brides may consider breast enhancement if they don’t like the way their gown fits, or they just want to change a major part of their appearance before the wedding. Women thinking of a breast enhancement should allow a month for recovery.
Procedures ranging from breast lifts, liposuction, and tummy tucks fall under the umbrella of body contouring. Body contouring might be a good idea if one or both halves of the couple wants to show off their bodies on international beaches, as well as look great in their gowns and/or tuxedos.
Over 14.6 million people opted for cosmetic procedures in the United States each year. Many of these men and women are brides and grooms that want to look their finest on their finest day.
