Every bride wants to look and feel amazing on her wedding day. Whether you’re looking for a few subtle enhancements or a head-to-toe transformation, Fayetteville Plastic Surgery Specialists & Cape Fear Aesthetics MedSpa has options that will have you looking your best on your big day.
What we hear from brides time and time again is that they want to feel that their wedding dress flatters their body and breasts. They want to feel gorgeous and confident for their bachelorette party, their wedding, and their honeymoon (*ahem*…check out Thermiva). With all eyes on the bride and so many candid pictures being taken, why wouldn’t the bride want to look exceptional from all angles? Paying extra attention to appearances is common at weddings because photos and memories from the big day will be cherished and shared for many years to come. The face and the hands are also focused on, so enhancements in these areas are frequently requested as well. Also, brides and other members of a wedding party often schedule appointments at the same time to get touchups on fillers and wrinkle relaxers.
If you are thinking, “Wait, I’m getting married but I’m under 30! Aren’t I too young to get plastic surgery?” Most procedures can be performed after age 18, and there is not really an age limit for plastic surgery. The patient’s maturity in decision making is always considered — you should do plastic surgery for the right reasons. Otherwise, there is nothing stopping you from choosing to make a change. That said, plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures can create results that last well beyond your actual wedding. Plastic surgery should be about more than one day. If you want to look great for your wedding pictures, there’s no harm in that. However, non-surgical procedures are designed to create more subtle effects and involve less downtime, so these are worth considering if you are still on the fence about a cosmetic procedure, or if you’re short on time.
Should you get plastic surgery before your wedding? If you’re looking for the boost of confidence and self-esteem that comes from inhabiting the body you want, then making a more long-term change with plastic surgery makes more sense. If you have an event coming up that you want to look your best for, you should be clear about that with your surgeon so he or she can advise you on the timeline. When it comes to plastic surgery, there are a couple of important considerations to keep in mind when it comes to timing:
Recovery: Any kind of surgery is going to slow you down for at least a few days—if not a few weeks. Your activitywill be limited as you recuperate. That’s normal! It’s part of the process, but this is why it’s important to plan any plastic surgery procedure with plenty of time to heal before saying, “I do”. Details about recovery time and care willbe discussed with you during your consultation.
The Fit: Everything from the tuxes to the wedding dresses are tailored to the occasion. This means that the fit is decided well before your actual wedding day. Plastic surgery, on the other hand, can make drastic changes to your body. This means that the perfect fit you achieved earlier might have to be revisited if you have a breast or body procedure.
Don’t worry if you’re not sure which procedure you want! Patients who come to consultation appointments are more likely to point out the area of concern, rather than request a specific procedure by name. During your visit, our doctors and medical staff can describe your options in detail to help choose appropriate procedures for the look you want.
