Play It Safe - No Procedures Before Wedding
The very strong likelihood is that you will be fine by the time the wedding comes around - but what if you aren't?
I have been in the situation before with brides wanting things done before their big day and have refused. You should go and enjoy your wedding without thinking about your surgeon! Every once in a while we run into a major bump in the road and it can take a while to put patients back on track.
Go enjoy your wedding. Come back after the honeymoon and have your procedure. You're a good candidate.

Chin Lipo & Possible Chin implant 10 weeks before wedding? Enough Recovery?
From the photos, the cheeks are flat anteriorly (in the front), there is excess facial and neck fat along with excess facial skin evidenced by jowls and nasolabial folds and the chin is weak. These combine to create a rectangular shaped face.
Following the beauty principles outlined in my book on face and body beauty, women look the most feminine, youthful and attractive with heart shaped faces. Heart shaped faces have cheeks that are full and round in the front. Cheek augmentation using a dermal filler (I prefer Restylane Lyft) or with cheek implants for a permanent enhancement will create full, round cheeks anteriorly that will feminize the entire face.
Jowls are sagging facial tissues and an indication for some form of a SMAS facelift. The underlying SMAS layer, of the face, must be dissected, lifted, trimmed and re-sutured. The excess skin is then removed and the facelift incisions closed.
My most popular facelift is the minimally invasive, short incision facelift that has all the benefits of more invasive facelifts (traditional, mid-face, deep plane and subperiosteal facelifts) but with these added benefits:
•very small incisions
•minimal tissue dissection = less bruising and swelling = rapid recovery
•can be performed in 90 minutes or less, with or without anesthesia
•no incisions within the hair = no hair loss
•excess fat can be removed
•excess skin removed
•cheeks, chin and jaw line can be augmented with dermal fillers (I prefer Restylane Lyft) or facial implants
•most patients fly back home to parts all over the world in as little as 3 days post-op
Hope this helps.
