Every woman wants to look her best on her wedding day. For most brides this means finding the perfect dress, but for others it means doing a little something extra by way of cosmetic enhancement… hello, Bridalplasty! Here are five questions that brides-to-be asked the RealSelf experts before walking down the aisle.
Bride’s Question: I have my wedding coming up… How many dress sizes will I lose after Smart Lipo?
Doctors’ Answer: Smart lipo is about changing the contour of your body, not significant weight loss, so there are no guarantees of a change in dress size. - Dr. Joel Schlessinger
Q: I have a wedding in 3 weeks… is it too late for me to get Restylane shots?
A: Nope. Potential swelling and bruising should subside after a few days, but get it done sooner than later to play it safe. - Dr. Michael Persky
Q: Would liposuction reduce my back fat to allow the zipper of my wedding dress to close without appearing too tight?
A: Liposuction on the back is less predictable than on other body parts, so exercise is the more reliable solution. - Dr. Brooke Seckel
The most important thing to know if you're planning procedures before a big day?
Set up a consultation with your doctor as soon as you get the date. That way there's plenty of time to plan, schedule and recover.
