Spring has arrived, and summer is just around the corner. For some people, that means getting excited for beach season. For others, it means preparing for wedding season. Summer is one of the most popular times of the year to get married, and if you plan on having any procedures to help look your best for the big day, you will need to plan ahead. It is becoming increasingly common for members of the wedding party – the bride, groom, bridesmaids, groomsmen, and parents of the happy couple – to opt for plastic surgery prior to the wedding. But it is important to remember that your body takes time to heal after your procedure. You will need to give yourself enough time to make sure all of the bruising and swelling subsides before the wedding. Plan on having minimally invasive, non-surgical treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic 2-3 weeks before the wedding since it may take a few weeks to see optimal results. If you are undergoing more extensive surgery such as liposuction, facial plastic surgery, or breast augmentation, make sure to schedule the procedure 2-3 months before the big day. This will ensure that you have enough time to completely heal in time for pictures.
