Timing Plastic Surgery for Your Wedding
If you are like a lot of women and considering plastic surgery or cosmetic procedure to look your best for a wedding, it’s important that you get the timing right. After all, most procedures have a recovery period when you will not yet be enjoying your final results. During this period, you may also not be up for the level of activity that the excitement of the nuptials may require, whether you are the bride, a bridesmaid, or a parent of the couple. To get the best results from your procedure and still be in shape to enjoy the festivities, it’s best to plan your procedure in advance. Here’s a brief timetable of recommended lead times:
- Tummy tuck–4 months
- Liposuction–4 months
- Breast augmentation–3 to 4 months
- Facelift–2 to 3 months
- Chemical peel–2 weeks
- BOTOX® Cosmetic–2 weeks
- Dermal fillers like Restylane or Juvéderm–2 weeks
If you follow this timeline, you should not only be able to see the best results from these procedures, but you should feel well enough to dance, laugh, drink, and otherwise enjoy the festivities to the fullest extent.
