Cosmetic procedures including Botox, Restylane, Microdermabrasion and more
*originally posted in Long Island Press
Spring is typically the time of year when brides and grooms finalize their wedding plans with last-minute details of menu, flowers, seating arrangements and, of course, “The Dress.” Just as important as “The Dress” is looking your best in it. More and more brides, and an increasing number of grooms, are turning to cosmetic surgery to help them look and feel their best on the most important day of their life.
I routinely perform procedures on individuals as they prepare for their big day. Weddings are beautiful, wedding dresses are beautiful and, on this most important of days, brides want to feel beautiful. Cosmetic surgery can offer fast and effective solutions to a number of nuptial nightmares. If a bride is preoccupied with what she perceives as a flaw in her figure, she cannot enjoy her day. Brides come to me in tears because their gown will not fit right, or they do not fill out certain areas the way they hoped they would. Men also often come in, with concerns about hairline and love handles. It’s not only brides who want to look their best.
As a matter of fact, it is not uncommon for additional members of the wedding party to utilize cosmetic procedures as well. I have had requests from bridesmaids, mothers (and fathers) of the bride and/or groom, as well as grandparents, to receive Botox or Restylane treatments, microdermabrasion and laser hair removal. This is the excuse that people have been looking for to splurge on themselves. My advice is to visit our office about one month prior to the big event for non-surgical procedures, and two months before your wedding or other big event for surgical procedures.
The beauty of cosmetic surgeries is that they are safe and effective with most offering a very quick recovery.
