Top 5 Cosmetic Enhancements before your Wedding

Here’s how you can look your very best for those wedding photos!

Botox®

How it helps:

  • It will help smooth wrinkles for your photos and videos, especially the crow’s feet when you smile, and your frown lines (“the number 11’s”) between your eyebrows.

When to get it done:

  • 1-2 months before your wedding.
  • No closer than 3 weeks before your wedding to allow for touch ups (especially if this is your first time).

Considerations:

  • Bruising.
  • Drooping of eyelid (very rare) can be treated with eye drops.

Who should do it:

  • An expert in facial rejuvenation such as a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon, a Plastic Surgeon or a Cosmetic Dermatologist (for example not a Dentist or Primary Care Physician).

Facial Fillers

How it helps:

  • Makes you look refreshed, rested, and rejuvenated.
  • It will help contour your face, fill in hollow areas, and diminish your laugh lines/marionette lines.
  • It can lift your cheek and augment your cheek bones (e.g. Voluma®).

When to get it done:

  • 3-4 months before your wedding (allows for a subtle/gradual approach).
  • No closer than 4-5 weeks before your wedding to allow for performing touch ups and resolution of swelling and bruising.

Considerations:

  • Bruising and swelling (usually very minor).

Who should do it:

  • An expert in facial rejuvenation such as a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon, a Plastic Surgeon or a Cosmetic Dermatologist.

Lip Augmentation

How it helps:

When to get it done:

  • 1-2 months before your wedding.
  • No closer than 3 weeks before your wedding to allow for touch ups and swelling to subside.

Considerations:

  • Swelling and a touch up visit to ensure as much correction as possible.
  • Volbella® for a softer feel and a more subtle look.

Who should do it:

  • An expert in lip augmentation such as a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon, a Plastic Surgeon or a Cosmetic Dermatologist.

Ultherapy®

How it helps:

  • Will tighten/firm up the jaw and neckline.
  • Can provide a browlift.
  • Counters sagging skin.
  • Ultherapy

When to get it done:

  • 3-6 months before your wedding to allow for optimal results.
  • No closer than 1-2 months before your wedding so you can see some results.

Considerations:

  • Transient swelling along the jaw and neckline for up to 7-10 days after treatment (usually minor).

Who should do it:

  • For optimal results, choose a physician who is an expert in facial rejuvenation (a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon or a Plastic Surgeon). Don’t use a nurse, an aesthetician, or a technician.

Neck Liposuction

How it helps:

  • Will get rid of that stubborn double chin.
  • Provides more definition along the neck and jawline.

When to get it done:

  • At least 1-2 months before your wedding.

Considerations:

  • Avoid weight gain after the procedure to retain your result.
  • One week of down time due to bruising and swelling.

Who should do it:

  • A Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon or a Plastic Surgeon who specializes in the face and neck.
