Bridal Makeover - Wedding Plastic Surgery
What is a bridal makeover?
Each and every woman has different goals when coming to Dr. Bandy, however, what we hear from brides time and time again is that they want to feel that their wedding dress flatters their bodies and they want to feel like a "million bucks" for their bachelorette party, their wedding and their honeymoon. With all eyes on the bride and so many candid photographs being taken, why wouldn't the bride want to look exceptional from all angles?
Although there is no specific bridal makeover package, listed below are the procedures and treatments that are commonly requested by brides-to-be. We recommend that certain procedures be completed 2-6 months or more before a wedding to allow for proper healing time. Quotes included are actual patient quotes of brides requesting pre-wedding procedures and/or treatments.
"I want to feel more womanly and fill out the top of my wedding dress".
*It is advised to have a breast augmentation procedure completed a minimum of 6 weeks prior to dress fitting appointment.
Liposuction of Arms
"I'm wearing this beautiful dress, but I feel that my arms are flabby and they will be exposed during the entire wedding".
Liposuction of Chin/Submental
"My hair will be pulled up and I will have a gorgeous necklace bringing attention to my neck area, and all I keep thinking about is how my photos will have me looking like I have a pudgy neck".
Liposuction of Abdomen, Waist, Flanks or full Trunk liposuction
"I want to have my dress fitted to perfectly hug my curves, but the problem is, I don't have good curves, I have rolls. Dress shopping has been embarrassing and somewhat depressing. I daydream about walking down the aisle and having an hourglass figure that makes my future husband weak in the knees."
"What can I say, the wedding night is as important to me as the wedding itself".
"I tried all the videos off of tv that promised a fuller rear-end with no success. The lady who sold me my wedding dress told me that we could always tailor the dress in to accommodate my lack of 'volume' in that specific area. NO WAY, I want my own. I actually added it to the wedding budget."
Latisse Eyelash Serum
"I went as a guest to a wedding, and at some point during the night from dancing or hugging so many people, one of the brides fake eyelashes came off. She had her husband looking for it on the dance floor. I never want to have that problem. I want to have naturally grown long lashes that aren't fake and can't come off".
Laser Resurfacing Treatment
"I'm spending a lot of money for a professional make-up artist, and a professional photographer taking high resolution photos that will be able to show every freckle, blemish and flaw. I really want my skin to look refreshed and I want my makeup to go on smooth. Plus, I want to get rid of these little lines that are starting to form under my eyes".
Juvederm Dermal Filler
"I have always felt that my lips were thin and I've always wanted much fuller lips, but it wasn't until I hired my make-up artist and we decided that that I would be wearing a red lipstick on my wedding that I decided to do something about it. I don't want duck lips, but I do want a little more than I have now to create a bigger canvas for my make-up artist to work with. Plus, I would like to be able to start wearing lipstick in general".
