Pre-Wedding Plastic Surgery Options

Every bride and groom wants to look their absolute best on their wedding day. With all eyes on you, why wouldn’t you want to feel picture-perfect? In preparation for your big day, you may find yourself paying more attention to your appearance by increasing your workouts, trying new skin care products or developing a glowing tan.

There are also plenty of plastic surgery treatments that can help you achieve your desired appearance. Every patient has their own goals when it comes to cosmetic treatment, and there is no specific pre-wedding plastic surgery package. Instead, Dr. Abhay Gupta, a respected plastic surgeon in San Diego, can tailor treatment to your specific area(s) of concern.

Breast Augmentation

Some brides with naturally small or asymmetrical breasts request breast implants so they can fill out the top of their bridal gowns. Ideally, breast augmentation should take place several months before dress fittings begin, in order to allow adequate time for recovery. Older brides (perhaps who are having a second wedding) may benefit from breast lift to reposition sagging breasts higher on the chest.

Body Contouring

Liposuction can help contour areas of the body that look flabby or out of proportion. For example, arm liposuction is helpful for brides that feel their upper arms look heavy and exposed in their gowns. Or, liposuction of the abdomen, waist or flanks can help create a leaner and more sculpted figure. Like breast augmentation, liposuction should be performed months in advance of the wedding to allow time for recovery.

Brides and grooms that are closer to the big day might find great results with SmartLipo non-surgical body contouring, which doesn’t require as much recovery downtime.

Facial Liposuction

The neck and area under the chin can also undergo liposuction to eliminate unwanted fat and create a more elegant or sculpted contour.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Wedding photographs can capture every flaw in the skin, from wrinkles to freckles to uneven pigmentation. A series of laser skin resurfacing sessions can help reduce the appearance of these blemishes and rejuvenate the skin’s tone and texture.

Botox or Fillers

Another non-surgical method of rejuvenating wrinkled skin is with the injection of Botox or fillers. Botox can smooth lines around the eyes and on the forehead, whereas fillers can minimize deeper wrinkles, creases and folds around the nose, mouth and chin.
