Bridal Beauty

Looking your best on your big day is a once-in-a-lifetime chance. That’s why it’s important to partner with an experienced, board certified plastic surgeon who can transform your look for natural, flattering results and timeless pictures. If you’re considering plastic surgery to boost your big day, it’s important that your schedule lines up. Opting for plastic surgery too late in your timeline can mean your results won’t be ready and you won’t enjoy your full results. Here’s what to know about scheduling your procedure to give yourself the right amount of time before your wedding.


Plastic Surgery Procedures

If you’re considering plastic surgery, it’s important to schedule your consultation with Dr. Diktaban as soon as possible. That way, Dr. Diktaban can give you the best idea of what to expect from your recovery time frame based on your ideal procedures. In general, rhinoplasty will take a longer amount of time for recovery, meaning you should count on around three to six months for a very presentable appearance. Body and breast procedures like liposuction, a tummy tuck or breast augmentation should require three to six months as well.

Mini-Surgical Procedures

Less invasive procedures can require shorter downtime at the cost of less transformative results, meaning they can be a great option if you want to look your best, most natural self. Options like FaceTite®, BodyTite®, or AccuTite® can tighten skin and reduce the appearance of fatty pockets with minimal downtime, making them a great option a few months in advance of your date. Additionally, RF microneedling like Morpheus8 can transform your skin with a package of treatments a few months ahead.

Injectable Treatments

Injectable treatments like Botox® or dermal fillers can be an excellent way to refresh your look a few weeks before your date. If wrinkles are a concern, Botox can reduce their appearance and relax tense, furrowed muscles. Make sure to give yourself a week or more for the full results to take effect. On the other hand, dermal fillers can be an excellent way to plump areas of low volume or boost your lips with immediate results. Bruising and swelling can take time to subside, though, so plan on two or more weeks before your date. Some patients benefit from a combination of both options for best results.
