There are plenty of non-surgical and surgical procedures that will help a bride feel confident and beautiful on her wedding day. While virtually any procedure can help you look your best, some may require planning ahead. Below are some of the best pre-wedding procedures and how to schedule them at just the right time.

Freshen Up Your Face

Your wedding will only last a few hours, but your wedding photos will last a lifetime. With these skin-perfecting facial treatments, you can look back on memories of a fresh, youthful face without the help of photo editing. Although recovery from these enhancements is not long, brides should plan them three to four weeks before their event to allow time for subsequent treatments if desired.

Skin Resurfacing Treatments

Skin texture or pigmentation issues, such as dark spots, freckles, and fine lines, will be significantly improved with skin resurfacing treatments. Depending on the degree of correction you desire, the intensity of either a chemical peel, dermabrasion, or laser treatment can be adjusted. The initial recovery time for a deep chemical peel or more intensive treatment is usually one week.

Dermal Fillers and Injectables

Fine lines and wrinkles may begin to appear as young as the early 20s. Anti-wrinkle injectables,  like Cosmetic, block the contraction of certain facial muscles that cause wrinkles. They work especially well on the forehead and on “frown lines” between the eyes.

Dermal fillers can also reduce wrinkles. Unlike Cosmetic, the injected product fills in wrinkles or contour defects anywhere on the face for a more youthful appearance. They can also be used to augment the lips, cheeks, or chin to provide added definition and more harmony among the facial features.

Skin Tightening

Skin tightening with Ultherapy®, a non-surgical ultrasound device can help tighten the facial and neck skin. This treatment can be done in 45 minutes, and results last up to a year.

Sculpt Your Body

Wedding dresses are typically designed to hug every curve of a woman’s body. If they don’t, it is standard practice to have them tailored well in advance of the wedding date. Since body sculpting procedures will cause you to lose or gain inches, be sure to plan your dress fittings around the time your final results should become apparent.

Breast Augmentation

Even a small increase in breast size can heighten your sense of confidence and femininity as you prepare for your wedding day. Your dream dress can appear more flattering as your body takes on the ideal “hourglass” silhouette. Initial recovery from breast augmentation is about two weeks, but the breasts may not arrive at their final result for up to three months due to residual swelling.

Liposuction

Liposuction is one of the best pre-wedding procedures because it can be performed on many areas of the body. If you are unhappy with stubborn fat on your lower abdomen, “bra fat” that may bulge on your back, or flabby arms, liposuction can provide the slender contour you desire. Any bruising should subside after one month, but patients should plan the procedure two months ahead of their event in case any swelling remains.
