The traditional spring wedding is no longer the most popular time for women to tie the knot. Fall and winter have also become very popular wedding times. We are fortunate in Southern California that weather is not the key issue when planning the perfect day. Brides to be who are planning a fall or winter wedding should consider planning for any cosmetic surgery enhancements that would help to make their perfect day more beautiful. With proper planning many of the popular procedures can be performed with excellent results healed and ready for the perfect day. The most popular procedures for brides include surgical procedures like breast augmentation and liposuction. Dr. Kim explains that these procedures combined can help brides- to- be not only look stunning in their wedding dress but also to maintain a more proportionate figure well after the wedding. Patients who were considering breast augmentation and liposuction should schedule the procedure about three months before the final fitting for their wedding dress. Most of the swelling from breast augmentation and liposuction will have subsided within four weeks; however allowing extra time helps reduce the stress of any unexpected swelling or contour change that could occur. Brides who were considering injectables like Botox or fillers including Juvederm or Restylane should schedule these cosmetic enhancements no less than 14 days before pre- wedding photos or the wedding day. Patients who typically bruise from the injections should allow a longer period of recovery when scheduling their injectable procedures. Planning a wedding can be a very stressful time and Dr. Kim along with his experienced staff work with brides- to- be to schedule procedures and manage their recovery period so that patients can relax and concentrate on what is most important: their wedding day.
