For people who are getting married or involved in the wedding planning process, looking your best for the special day is of the utmost importance. Unfortunately, the signs of aging can taint the photographs which provide a lifetime of memories of the event. To that end, some people consider cosmetic surgery before the wedding to help them look younger. Timing is critical in helping to determine what procedures can be performed and what results a person can expect from facial rejuvenation before a wedding.
If you have less than 2 weeks before a wedding, it is ill advised to undergo any kind of cosmetic surgery procedure, even Botox Cosmetic or facial fillers. at this point, consideration should be put into having a makeup makeover and skin care evaluation. This often provides excellent results and can be worth the time and investment to produce nice results without risks.
If you have 2-3 weeks before the big day, consider Botox Cosmetic or facial fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, or Evolence among others. These can help to soften the lines and wrinkles of the face that speak to a person’s age. While the injections can be performed in the office, they can sometimes result in bruising or swelling of the face which may take a week to subside. It is therefore best to pursue these treatments at least 2 weeks in advance of the big day to ensure that everything is back to normal for photographs.
If you have 2-3 months before the ceremony, consider other procedures such as a facelift, nose job, or brow lift. some laser treatments can safely be performed if you have 2-3 months to recover as well. All of these procedures require some down time and have risks of bruising and swelling. with lasers, the skin will take time to heal and for redness to subside. Generally 2-3 months is enough time to allow for resolution of facial redness to at least a degree that can be covered by makeup. in the unlikely event that a complication occurs, generally 2-3 months is enough time to resolve the complication.
If you have hair loss and wish to have a head of hair similar to what you had when you were younger and have 6 months before the wedding, consider undergoing a hair transplant. though the procedure is an outpatient procedure performed using local anesthesia, it can take 6 months for the results to show and the hair to regrow. in addition, hair can be transplanted to the eyebrows to create natural, full eyebrows without the need for pencils or permanent makeup.
Memories from a wedding can last a lifetime. If you are getting married, part of a wedding party, or wedding planning, planning ahead can allow for facial rejuvenation which can make those memories even more special.
