"I did it" may be the first your words your fiancé hears before you say "I do." Yes, you finally told him that you had a mini-facelift procedure done two weeks ago. Because you knew that all eyes on both sides of the family would be upon you at the church altar. So you felt you needed to look your best for the wedding photographer and had the procedure.
And you are as ecstatic about the results as you are about your future.
It’s a growing trend among women who are opting for plastic surgery before taking their wedding vows. Partly inspired by the glamor of celebrity weddings and partly by the need for self-assurance, women in increasing numbers are looking to cosmetic surgery as a personal adjunct to picking out the right wedding dress.
A wedding is not simply a rite of passage. It is a merging of family histories. Professional photographs of your wedding day will someday become heirloom images of how you met your children’s mother or father. It’s not a sign of vanity to be concerned about your personal appearance as you walk down the aisle as the digital cameras are firing away.
Many women are choosing quick, non-invasive cosmetic approaches using Botox or injectable fillers or laser light treatments in order to remove facial lines and wrinkles or to add volume to their cheeks, chin, or neck line. Soon-to-be brides also are having surgical procedures like eyelid surgery, cheek implants and fat transfer.
Fast forward ten, twenty, fifty years: there are also instances of couples having facelift surgery to celebrate a milestone anniversary.
On your wedding day you want things to be fairytale perfect. A pre-nuptial cosmetic procedure is just icing on your wedding cake.
While congratulations are in order on your blissful union, don’t forget to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to see if the cosmetic procedure you have in mind is right for you.
