It’s no surprise that every bride-to-be wants to look their absolute best as they walk down the aisle. But how they are achieving this may be a bit surprising. The latest statistics from the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery show more women are going beyond just facials, manicures and makeup for their big day. Instead, many are opting for cosmetic enhancement (both surgical and nonsurgical). Here, Newport Beach plastic surgeon Dr. Rob Kessler takes a closer look at this trend.

Popular Bridalplasty Requests

According to the latest data from the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, weddings are the number one special event cited by women as the reason for undergoing plastic surgery. The number of nonsurgical facial plastic surgery procedures, in particular, has increased due to the bridalplasty trend. Because all eyes will be on the bride, the pressure is on for women to look as luminous and radiant as possible. Nonsurgical procedures such as Botox and dermal fillers are the most requested by brides-to-be to enhance the appearance of the forehead, cheeks and lips. Botox can minimize wrinkles on these areas while injectables are used to fill in facial folds and lines or add volume to thin lips. Other brides are requesting chemical peels to reduce the appearance of superficial skin imperfections such as wrinkles, fine lines and uneven texture. Whichever treatment they choose, brides can enjoy a more beautiful complexion on their special day.

Other brides-to-be prefer surgical cosmetic enhancements to help them look their best on their special day. Most women follow strict eating and exercise regimens in order to make sure they fit in their wedding gowns. However, there are some areas of the body that may be resistant to exercise and diet. Body contouring procedures such as liposuction and tummy tuck can help eliminate stubborn fatty deposits for a more svelte and attractive physique.
