As a board-certified plastic surgeon, I have many brides-to-be coming to my office wanting to look their best on their wedding day. During a consultation, we collaborate on a plan and timeline to ensure they look their best on the big day.
To begin with, all brides definitely benefit from a healthy diet full of fruits, vegetables, healthy fats, lean proteins, and adequate water intake. Additionally, getting enough sleep and at least a little bit of exercise gives a great start to an optimized body and mind. This may seem like a tall order but self-care is important for looking and feeling your best.
Brides concerned with their faces have various concerns such as fine lines, active wrinkles, acne scarring, uneven skin tone, and sometimes that little bit of excess fat under the chin. Treatments such as facials, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, microneedling, IPL, and/or laser treatments can help. Active wrinkles can be managed with injections of Botox/Dysport™. A beautiful neck can be achieved with Kybella™ injections or micro-liposuction. When looking to improve facial concerns, understand that it may require several treatment sessions over 6-12 months for optimal results, so plan accordingly.
Achieving a flattering look in their wedding gown is the other main goal that soon-to-be brides come to see me about. For them it may be that their breasts are too big or too small. They may have excess fat on their arms, back, or waistline. Or they feel like their backsides are too small to fill out their gown in the way they would like. Breast reduction, breast augmentation, liposuction, and Brazilian butt lifting, are all options for enhancing the female form to look your best. Because it takes about 6 months to fully heal from surgery, again in this case you will need to plan accordingly too.
Do your homework and work with board-certified aesthetic specialists to get the best results possible. That way all you’ll remember is everyone saying “you were such a beautiful bride!”
