The beginning of spring often symbolizes the upcoming wedding season. For many brides to be the dresses have been selected and the final touches are being added. The nerves are kicking up and many are looking in the mirror and dreading the idea that they may not look their absolute best on their wedding day. With only six weeks to eight weeks left before the wedding which procedures can a bride to be consider without running the risk of a wedding disaster on the much anticipated wedding day? Dr. Kim consults with brides to be and helps them to understand first the recovery time they can expect for any given procedure and what that looks like when contrasted with the wedding day. For many brides 6 to 8 weeks is the perfect time for Botox and fillers including Restylane or Juvederm. Botox will help to treat wrinkles on the forehead and crows feet on the outer corners of the eyes. The nasolabial folds, which are the lines that exist from the nose to the mouth, and the marionette lines, which are the lines from the corner of the lips to the chin can be treated with fillers so that they smooth the skin and plump the treated area. Both of these procedures can make a dramatic difference in the overall appearance resulting in a youthful, more rested, look. It is important for brides to be to schedule their procedure well in advance (usually about two weeks) before their wedding day. Patients should be sure to follow instructions including no aspirin or aspirin containing products prior to injectable day. Even if patients have never experienced bruising after injectable treatments they should proceed with treatments as if they expect to have some residual bruising. Also patient should allow enough time for the filler and Botox to settle and look more natural. Injectable treatments prior to the wedding day are great idea for patients who want to capture their most youthful and beautiful appearance on one of the most special days of their lives. Patients who are considering plastic surgery are encouraged to contact Dr. Kim and schedule a consultation.
