Everyone wants to look and feel their best on their wedding day. After all, weddings are all about capturing special memories and moments for years to come. Now more than ever, people are looking to plastic surgery professionals for treatments and procedures that promise a dewy complexion or minor face-sculpting so they feel like their best self on their wedding day.

In 2019 alone, a study by RealSelf showed a 30% increase in cosmetic procedures being considered as part of people’s pre-wedding plans. However, getting a cosmetic procedure can be daunting, especially if it’s your first time. Many brides and grooms don’t want to take chances with a big cosmetic change, understandably, as this is one of the most photographed days of a person’s life. Instead of surgical procedures with drastic results and long recovery times, many are considering getting “tweakments” before their nuptials. 

“Tweakments” are little adjustments that help sculpt the face for a natural-looking effect, require little downtime, and still deliver noticeable results. It is recommended that if you’re considering making tweakments to your face prior to your wedding, that you make a plan with your plastic surgeon six months out for the best outcome. This gives you and your doctor time to figure out what treatments work best and exactly how your tweakments will look for your wedding day.

Although, if you’re looking for a high-impact procedure like a laser treatment or a deep chemical peel to “kick start” your wedding day skin, scheduling these appointments at least six months in advance is advisable, as some of these procedures require more healing time and may cause redness or dryness during the healing period. 

There are many treatments and procedures out there, and with the help of the experts at Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery, you will be able to choose the right tweakments for you, whether that be botox, injectable fillers, microneedling, a liquid rhinoplasty (nonsurgical nose job), laser treatment, or chemical peel.
