Bride and Groom Makeover: Cosmetic procedures to help you look great on your wedding day

Wedding planning is exciting yet stressful at the same time. There are a lot of things that you need to organize not only to ensure that your big day will be successful but also to meet the expectations of your family, close friends, and guests. Handling the stress and pressure for this significant commitment is not easy, but it doesn’t mean that there is no way to avoid having a couple of wrinkles.

Here comes the cosmetic procedure. But don’t get too frantic, not all cosmetic procedure requires surgery! Yes, you have read it right. With the advanced technology and modern inventions, you can enhance your natural beauty with a few non-surgical procedures before your wedding day. We have compiled some of the frequently asked questions and provided an answer for you. Read on to learn more.

1. How can I have a radiant complexion on my wedding day?


Love makes everyone glow, but sometimes we need a little extra help in this department. A dull complexion makes you look tired, unhappy and older than you feel. Chemical peels remove dead skin cells and damaged layers of skin to reveal healthy cells. The result is a glowing complexion and skin that has fewer fine lines, wrinkles, pigment irregularities. For women, this means that applying makeup produces a flawless, airbrushed appearance.

2. What can I do to have sensual lips?


The lips play an important role in facial balance and if someone is considered alluring. Lips that are thin, asymmetrical or surrounded by fine lines detract from your appearance. Everyone wants kissable lips on their wedding day, and a lip lift is one of the quickest and easiest ways to enhance your lips. Dermal fillers are used to precisely add just the enhancement that you need, and the results can be subtle or dramatic.

3. What cosmetic procedures will make my skin look healthy?


Don’t let scars, acne, wrinkles and other imperfections make you feel less attractive on your wedding day when there are several options to improve the health and appearance of your skin. Our laser skin rejuvenation treatments, also known as laser peels, are for more advanced skin problems that may not respond to dermal fillers and light chemical peels. Because the treatment addresses more significant issues, we recommend that you plan well ahead of your wedding day. Your skin may have a pinkish appearance for up to one year. This does not mean that you cannot have laser skin resurfacing if your wedding is within 12 months, but only Dr. Frankel can provide this information.

4. Can I have a younger appearance on my wedding day?


Fine lines and wrinkles are most obvious when people are close to you and in photographs. If you have these signs of aging, they can be treated with chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing, but what if you do not have enough time to heal from these treatments? Dr. Frankel may recommend dermal fillers and injectables, such as Botox®, Juvéderm®, Restylane® and Dysport®. Explain to Dr. Frankel what you would like to remedy, and he will develop a strategy that meets both your cosmetic goals and timeline.

5. What are the cosmetic treatments for grooms?


Let’s not forget the groom and guys in the wedding party. They, too, deserve to look their best for the big day, and the bride wouldn’t want it any other way. Men often share the same cosmetic goals as women, yet cosmetic treatments need to be adapted to preserve the masculinity of a man’s facial features. Dr. Frankel works with grooms and other men in the wedding party to address wrinkles, indentations, undefined jawlines and other common male concerns. Being solution-oriented problem-solvers is a strong characteristic of men, yet the best approach is to be open with Dr. Frankel about what flaws you would like to address for the wedding day.

6. How long does cosmetic procedure take to perform?


This depends on several factors, such as:

  • The severity of the skin problems
  • How much time you are willing to dedicate to recovery and healing
  • The patient’s cosmetic goals
  • Having realistic expectations

Based on your schedule for the wedding, Dr. Frankel recommends the treatments that will produce the best possible results. If your wedding is rapidly approaching, you may need to compromise somewhat, but you will still look fabulous on the big day.

What Treatments are Right for Me?

With so much information and testimonials available on the internet about cosmetic treatments and plastic surgery, we see a lot of men and women who come to their consultations with a list of procedures already in mind. Not every procedure is suited to every patient, and Dr. Frankel may have better solutions that will exceed your expectations. In order to prepare for your consultation, focus on:

  • Making a list of cosmetic aspects of your appearance that you want to improve
  • Finding images of celebrities, friends and other people who have the “look” that you desire
  • Meet with a professional makeup artist to learn how cosmetic treatments may improve the application of cosmetics for your wedding

Looking exceptionally beautiful on your wedding day begins by choosing a qualified plastic surgeon who can give you a good piece of advice accompanied with great results. We hope the above tips helped you. All the best for you dream wedding!
