You’ve found the perfect person to spend the rest of your life with, the perfect wedding venue and the perfect gown, tuxedo or suit… why not perfect your look before the Big Day? It is becoming increasingly more common at the Premier Plastic Surgery Center of New Jersey for brides, grooms and even bridesmaids to come in requesting various cosmetic surgery procedures from Dr. Brian S. Glatt, MD, including: Injectables (Botox, Restylane, Radiesse and Juvederm), breast augmentation, tummy tucks (abdominoplasty), eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), fat grafting, and liposuction. In addition, a professional skin care “tune-up” can be just the thing to help your skin appear fresh and glowing on the outside as much as you may be feeling so on the inside!
Statistically, couples are waiting longer to get married. Dr. Glatt says that, especially as they age, people are more conscious about their skin and looks, and it is not uncommon for brides and grooms to request procedures that will improve and/or enhance their appearance before they tie the knot. Similarly, brides will often come in with some or all of their bridesmaids, so they too can feel more confident and comfortable in bridal party photos and when walking down the aisle. In fact, according to a recent news article, bridal party “tuneups” have increased approximately 25 percent over the last two years!
At the Premier Plastic Surgery Center of New Jersey, Dr. Glatt and his experienced skin care consultants offer various wedding packages to brides, mothers (and fathers!) of the bride, grooms and their bridal parties in preparation for the Big Day. However, Dr. Glatt cautions that you should not wait until the last minute to schedule appointments. Instead, such patients should schedule their first consultation for injectible and/or skin care appointments at least four to six months before the wedding. This period of time allows for a “trial run” and follow up treatments specifically scheduled so as to maximize the effect on the Big Day. In the case of surgical procedures, Dr. Glatt recommends that patients schedule their appointment at least 9 months before the wedding, to allow time for proper healing and recovery.
Ideal procedures for the bride and bridal party members include: Botox, injectable fillers (Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane), skin care, chemical peels, and liposuction. More surgical options include: breast augmentation, tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), breast lift, breast reduction, fat grafting, and eyelid surgery
Ideal procedures for the groom include: Botox, injectable fillers (Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane), skin care, eyelid surgery, liposuction, male breast reduction (gynecomastia)
Ideal procedures for the mother of the bride include: professional skin care, Botox, injectable fillers (Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane), breast lift, breast reduction, liposuction, facelift, eyelid lift, necklift, tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), and chemical peel.
