With the wedding season soon approaching, many will-be brides are exploring a new trend in the world of plastic surgery: “bridalplasty.” ABC News reported on this, profiling one woman who underwent a few procedures before her big day. “Many brides might head to the gym to tone up before their big day. They may even go on a diet,” reports ABC. “But for many brides nowadays, getting a breast lift or liposuction has also become part of the pre-wedding day routine.”
The article profiles Linsey Ray who wanted to look perfect for her wedding. Having struggled with weight, Ray underwent a regimen of healthy diet and exercise. “But there was a downside to that much weight loss,” reports ABC, “it left behind loose, extra skin.” She decided plastic surgery would be the best option. Ray opted for a tummy tuck and a breast lift. ABC quotes Ray as saying, “I’m happy with the results. I know I’ll look great in my dress. I’m excited to try on dresses.” So is this trend here to stay? Read on to learn more about a few of today’s bridalplasty procedures.
Bridalplasty ProceduresHere are just a few of the cosmetic treatments some women are turning to before walking down the aisle:
- Liposuction: While liposuction is certainly not a replacement for diet and exercise, patients suffering from persistent, exercise-resistant fat can often benefit from the procedure. During a Liposuction Treatment, we remove stubborn fat from the abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks and/or thighs using a suction tool. The result is often a slimmer waistline and a more trim body.
- Breast augmentation: Breast Augmentation is the most common plastic surgery procedure performed on women. The procedure is used to improve the appearance of breasts that are too small or lack fullness. During the procedure, implants are placed under the breast tissue or under the muscle of the chest wall. For many women, these fuller, shapelier breasts can often mean more confidence.
- Botox injections: Some soon-to-be-brides are looking for less invasive procedures. Botox, which is essentially a muscle relaxer, can temporarily prevent facial creases and create a fresher, more youthful look. This “quicker fix” treatment is the most common minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure in the US.
