As a bride-to-be, it is perfectly understandable that you want to look your most beautiful on your wedding day. Fortunately, modern plastic and cosmetic surgery give you several ways to deal with the parts of your body and face that you wish to improve.
As that wonderful day approaches, here are some cosmetic procedures that you might consider, but as you do so, please keep the calendar in mind.
Some of these procedures need to be performed at least 6 to 12 months before your wedding to avoid any bruising or swelling that might spoil your appearance and put a damper on this wonderful day.
Breast augmentation (or reduction)
Procedures to enhance the appearance of the breasts – including augmentation and a breast lift – can help you look even better in your wedding dress.
Breast augmentation uses implants to increase the size and volume of the breasts, while a breast lift raises saggy and deflated breasts to a higher position on the chest wall. Many women choose to have both to gain a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Conversely, some women choose to have a breast reduction procedure for their heavy, overly large breasts. Beyond changing your appearance, breast reduction may potentially improve the quality of your daily life, especially if you have breasts that are too large for your frame and you suffer from chronic neck, shoulder, and back pain.
Despite eating right and exercising, there’s always the possibility you’ll still have lingering pockets of fat that just won’t go away.
One of the best ways to deal with these stubborn areas of fat is through liposuction. This procedure can fine-tune your body before your wedding day by slimming down those isolated bodies of fat in places like your love handles and inner thighs.
Liposculpture: Fat Transfer
Even after significant weight loss, there are stubborn areas of skin and fat that can stick around. You might face extra skin or fat around the face or divots around the hips, buttocks or pelvis. Our liposculpture procedure can smooth these areas over to give you a proportionate and youthful appearance.
An abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure that makes the abdominal area thinner and firmer. The surgery involves removing excess skin and fat from the lower and middle abdominal areas to tighten the muscle and fascia of the abdominal wall. As in the case of a breast reduction, in addition to changing your physical appearance, possible side effects of a tummy tuck include better posture and relief of lower back pain.
This is one of the most popular plastic surgeries of all time used to improve the appearance of the nose. Many brides – and quite a few grooms as well – have had this procedure to correct imperfections in the shape of their noses. Beyond aesthetics, this procedure can also correct structural imperfections of the nose and improve breathing.
In addition to these surgical procedures, a large number of non-surgical procedures are also available at the Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute. Among others, these include Botox, lip augmentation, laser resurfacing, and laser hair removal.
