Plastic Surgery tips for brides-to-be
May 20, 2011
May is here, which means that many people will be attending or receiving invitations to weddings in the coming weeks. Ladies who are preparing to tie the knot may want to consider undergoing a cosmetic procedure before their big day - after all, it's important to look your best!
However, in order to receive the best results, it may take a little planning on the part of the bride. While there are a variety of procedures that will make one glow for their ceremony and reception, it's important to visit a board-certified plastic surgeon with enough time to fully recover, according to a recent HealthNewsDigest article.
Botox treatments are some of the most popular treatments, but keep in mind that it typically takes four or five days for the effects to be visible.
Chemical peels are often popular to help clear the face of dead skin cells. However, the procedure can leave the skin feeling a little tender, so you'll want to be sure you have plenty of time to heal before you have to apply your wedding makeup.
Other facial fillers that help plump one's lips can make one appear fresh and gorgeous on the day of their wedding. These injectables often cause swelling or bruising initially, so again, it is a good idea to have this procedure a few days before your wedding.
According to the news source, microdermabrasion is another popular procedure among brides-to-be. This beauty treatment should be scheduled more than a week before the wedding, because the skin may be red or sensitive.
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reports that microdermabrasion works best when done in several sessions over a period of weeks. There are virtually no side effects caused by the procedure, and is recommended for people who have sensitive skin that does not react well to chemical procedures.
There can be a lot of stress leading up to a wedding, so young women would be wise to visit a plastic surgeon for a consultation well before the big day. A medical professional can help you develop a plan for pre-wedding beauty treatments that will ensure you are looking your best when it comes time to walk down the aisle.
