New reality show has brides compete for plastic surgery
September 17, 2010
A new reality show, Bridalplasty, will soon air on E!, filming brides as they compete against each other in a series of challenges for a chance to undergo plastic surgery procedures before their wedding. These challenges include tasks such as writing wedding vows and planning honeymoons, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The winner will get to choose her most desired surgical procedure and then reveal the results to friends, family and the groom. "Viewers will witness his emotional and possibly shocked reaction as they stand at the altar and he lifts her veil to see her for the first time following her extreme plastic surgery," E! said, according to the news source.
TheWeek.com reports that many have expressed distaste at the premise of the show.
Shows like Bridalplasty may glorify extreme plastic surgery, but patients should never rush into procedures. Instead, experts recommend that individuals who are considering cosmetic enhancements consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
During the consultation, plastic surgeons will also evaluate the patient to determine if the individual has realistic expectations about the potential results of surgery.
Individuals should educate themselves as to the risks associated with the procedure. To find a board-certified ASAPS-Member in your area visit www.surgery.org/consumers/find-a-plastic-surgeon
