Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day, so it’s not uncommon for brides to consider cosmetic treatments before the big day. But if you’re thinking about getting plastic surgery before your wedding, you’ll want to time your procedure just right to ensure you see nothing but beautiful results on your special day.
Surgical Body Contouring
Are you thinking about a body contouring procedure like a tummy tuck, liposuction or breast enhancement before your big day? If so, you’ll want to schedule these surgical treatments at least six months out to ensure swelling, bruising and other side effects have time to diminish and your final results are well on their way.
Nonsurgical Body Contouring
If possible, have your dress fitted after your body contouring procedure to ensure it fits like a glove on your big day.
Nonsurgical body contouring options like VelaShape™ III can be good picks before a big event, since you won’t need as much recovery time afterward. But you should still schedule these treatments at least three months before your wedding day, as it can take this amount of time for your results to show.
Keep in mind that you may require multiple treatment sessions to see optimal results, so plan ahead if this is the case for you.
BOTOX and Fillers
It can take up to 2 weeks to see your final results after BOTOX and dermal fillers, so this is the minimum amount of time to schedule these treatments before your big day. It’s always a good idea to give yourself a little more wiggle room, though, in case you need a touch-up injection or are still experiencing some swelling.
