Understandably, one of the most important things every bride and groom want is to look their absolute best on their wedding day, which is why it’s not surprising that more and more engaged couples are choosing to undergo some form of cosmetic treatment prior to their big day. With incredible technological advancements constantly being made in the cosmetic procedure industry, it’s no wonder that an increasing number of bridal parties are able to achieve their physical appearance goals in record time before the wedding day arrives. Keep reading to learn all about some of the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures most brides and grooms are currently requesting for themselves and their wedding parties.
Botox® Treatment and Injections in Toronto and the GTA
Botox® is a non-invasive neuromodulator procedure that’s increased in popularity in Toronto and the GTA over the past 20 or so years. It’s especially popular amongst brides-to-be, their bridal parties, and even mothers-of-the-bride because of the simplistic and brief nature of the procedure. It’s a quick and easy way to correct and eliminate the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and even loss of volume in various parts of the face and neck. The reason many newly engaged brides and even their grooms are seeking out Botox® treatment in Toronto is because the GTA is home to some of the most qualified facial plastic surgeons in the cosmetic procedure industry. If you’re a bride or groom who’s planning on undergoing Botox® injections in the GTA, then it’s highly recommended that you plan your procedure at least one to two months in advance to allow enough time for your skin to heal in case bruising or inflammation occurs or in case you need multiple sessions prior to your wedding date.
Facial Fillers: Juvéderm® and Restylane® Treatment
Many brides and grooms also consider Juvéderm® and Restylane® treatment to plump up their lips and fill in fine lines as well as wrinkles under the eyes and around the mouth. Most couples have these procedures done around a month or two before the wedding to guarantee that their faces are fully healed well in advance of their special days. These fillers are also used to plump up the face if it’s sunken in due to age or loss of volume in the skin. They also correct under-eye hollows and enhance the plumpness of the lips to make them more voluminous and shapely. Even though the risk of complications is highly unlikely, and the recovery period is relatively short, most plastic surgeons recommend booking your appointment a minimum of four weeks before the wedding to guarantee a full recovery and that all swelling or bruising subsides in time for your big day.
Despite the fact that most engaged couples are preoccupied with losing weight throughout their bodies, a growing trend that facial cosmetic surgeons in Toronto are encountering is facial liposuction. This type of liposuction process involves removing or reshaping fat cells that are located in the cheeks, chin, jaw, and neck area with the purpose of making the patient look skinnier while also creating a more cohesive look that complies with the shape of the person’s body. Patients are especially likely to seek out this procedure if they’ve already undergone body contouring.
Conversely, there are some people who feel that they need to add a little extra volume to their faces to make their skin look more youthful and radiant, which makes a lot of sense because every patient has different needs. Under these circumstances, chin augmentation surgery in Toronto may be the solution you’re looking for. If you feel like your cheeks appear to be too dark or sunken in as a result of ageing or overexposure to the sun and other natural elements, then you might want to consider getting chin implants before your big day. Of course, age isn’t always the culprit; some people are just naturally extremely thin and have a difficult time gaining weight in certain parts of their bodies in the same way that others have a hard time losing stubborn weight. Just keep in mind that cheek augmentation is permanent whereas fillers are temporary and it all depends on how much time you have left before your wedding.
Pellevé: Skin Tightening Treatment
Pellevé treatment is most common amongst the older population because it’s an excellent method of tightening the skin and producing an extremely youthful result. The main goal of this procedure is to reduce the look of wrinkles throughout the face and pull loose skin back to make it look smoother and stronger while also promoting elasticity. Contrary to what many people might believe, this is a completely non-invasive procedure that entails the use of state-of-the-art radiofrequency technology that promotes the reproduction of collagen and new skin cells throughout the face and neck. It’s not a permanent solution though, so multiple treatments will be required to keep up the brilliant results. This procedure is most popular amongst older brides or mothers-of-the-bride.
