For some women it’s a mere formality, but for many, their wedding is considered the happiest day of their lives. That’s why, most brides want to look as radiant as they feel, and why for many, cosmetic tweaks are no longer a flight of fancy, they are a must.
But just as with planning the reception, choosing the cake, making the guest lists, and selecting the flowers, ensuring you have the right surgeon, and the right information on procedures should be your top priority. After all, with all eyes on the bride, you’re going to want to wow.
The Bridal Wish List
Some of the procedures that are becoming more and more commonplace for brides to be include dermal fillers, Anti Wrinkle, body contouring, breast augmentation and breast reduction. But just what is involved in these procedures, and how can they help you look your very best for the big day?
While in the past, anti-ageing cosmetic procedures were limited to a few surgical procedures – procedures that involved general anaesthetic, surgery, and weeks to months of recovery time – with the miracle of dermal fillers, however, it is now possible to achieve better results with almost zero down time, and at a fraction of the expense.
Made up almost entirely of a substance which occurs totally naturally in the body, dermal fillers are injected into various portions of the face and body to plump, re-contour and lift sagging cheeks, sunken eyes, and literally fill out fine lines and wrinkles around the forehead, mouth and eyes.
While dermal fillers can be used to freshen almost any area of the face, there are some deep wrinkles that are caused by not only a lack of collagen, but by over exercised muscles which cause the skin to crease. With a few carefully placed Anti Wrinkle injections, these muscles can be relaxed, allowing the surrounding skin to smooth and de-wrinkle for up to three-four months at a time.
In the past, many brides-to-be would undergo strict regimens of crash dieting, and excessive exercising only to reach their big day, none the slimmer! Unfortunately for many women (and men), there are often fatty deposits in the body, whether they include a post-pregnancy paunch, love handles, or as American Comedian Maria Bamford puts it, a ‘diet coke hump’, that traditional diet and exercise just won’t budge.
But if you’re willing to modify your eating and exercise habits, there is a simple non-invasive technique that will rid you of those extra lumps and bumps for good – and without the need for traditional liposuction. Named Coolsculpting, this Harvard tested technology, developed by renowned cosmetic technology company Zeltiq, targets the areas you want to budge with ultra-cool temperatures. After just one treatment, Coolsculpting literally freezes the fat cells in these trouble spots, allowing the body to eliminate these dead cells naturally over the coming weeks. Even better, it achieves all this without a scalpel in sight.
Finally, for many women, a wedding is the excuse they’ve been waiting for to finally address a concern they have with their breasts. And whether you are looking to enhance, increase, or reduce her breasts, it is important that you give your full attention to finding the most qualified and experienced surgeon that you can. After all, you don’t just want to look good in your wedding dress, you want to carry that confidence with you long afterwards.
