If you’re planning a trip down the aisle, you may also be planning a visit to your local plastic surgeon’s office. Today, many women who seek out the ideal wedding day look are deciding to get plastic surgery procedures right before their weddings. Of course, there are some things to consider before signing on for cosmetic surgery during this important time in your life. To help brides-to-be make all of the right choices, we’ve compiled some helpful information about a range of common procedures.
Breast Implants – There’s certainly nothing wrong with getting the breasts that you’ve always wanted, in order to fill out your bridal dress the way that you’ve always dreamed of. However, before considering a pre-wedding plastic surgery procedure of this type, you should recognize that all forms of plastic surgery, including breast augmentations, require recovery time.
To give yourself a few weeks to get back to normal after your operation, be sure to schedule your breast implants procedure at least three months before your wedding date. One fun option is to do your wedding planning online while you recover from your surgery. Today, lots of bridal retailers offer wedding favours, decor ideas, flowers and invitations at online store fronts.
If you’re going to get implants, hold off on choosing your wedding gown until weeks after your operation, in order to ensure that all post-op swelling has disappeared. Your plastic surgeon will give you painkillers and other recovery aids until you’re back up to speed following your breast augmentation.
Tummy Tucks or Liposuction – Brides-to-be generally want to be their absolute thinnest as they marry, because wedding pictures last forever. If you want a tummy tuck or liposuction before your wedding, you should also book your preferred procedure at least three months before your nuptials. A tummy tuck will tighten your abdominal muscles and remove loose, sagging skin from your tummy area, leaving you with a smooth, sexy belly that will look wonderful in any form-fitting bridal gown. Liposuction is sometimes used during tummy tucks, at the patient’s request, to remove up to five pounds of belly flab.
Liposuction may be used to eradicate upper arm fat that doesn’t do your wedding dress justice. It may also be used to combat a double chin, or to streamline chubby thighs, buttocks, hips and waistlines. In all cases, these plastic surgery operations will require a few weeks of recovery time.
Whether you choose tummy tucks, liposuction, or breast implants before your wedding, always choose a board-certified plastic surgeon. Working with the best will make certain that you minimize the risks of any complications or side effects. It’s worth it to pay more for a great plastic surgeon…especially at this romantic and special time of your life.
