Cosmetic surgery is a type of elective surgery meant to enhance a person’s physical appearance. Some procedures are more invasive than other and require significant healing time. Read on to learn about different types of cosmetic surgery before your wedding.

Body Contouring

Congratulations for brides and grooms who lose a significant amount of weight before their wedding. However, sometimes after a swift major weight loss the after effects may include extreme skin sag on the upper arms or loosened flappy skin around the abdomen. Body contouring is a procedure that seeks to remove excess skin and fat from the body and improves the overall tone and shape of the affected parts. This procedure requires a hospital stay and about 4 months of healing time.

Breast Enhancement

Breast enhancement is a type of augmentation requiring an implant that alters the size and shape of a woman’s breast.  A bride who wants to fill out her wedding dress more might choose this type of surgery. There are two types of implants: saline and silicone gel. Breast enhancement requires a hospital stay and approximately six weeks for recovery.


One of the most popular cosmetic surgeries is liposuction, a procedure that removes fate from various parts of the body such as belly, neck, buttocks, arms, chin, calves or thighs. Couples who want to remove a slight ‘pooch’ and look great in a swimsuit on their honeymoon might choose liposuction. Depending on the patient, liposuction may or may not require a hospital stay. Allow approximately 4 – 6 months for healing.


Brides or grooms worried about wrinkles might elect to have a facelift, an invasive procedure that seeks to remove wrinkles and provide a more youthful appearance. Types of facelift techniques include traditional incision, laser, endoscopy and liposuction. Most facelifts are outpatient procedures but some require a hospital stay. Healing time varies according to each individuals and their specific surgery needs, expect months.

Fillers and Injectables

Less invasive than facelifts are fillers and injectables. A bride or groomed concerned about slight face sag such as laugh lines or furrowed lines between the brows might elect for a filler or injectable. Fillers add volume to your face such as the lip and cheek area. Common filler products include Juvederm or Restylane. Expect about two weeks for recovery time.

By far the most popular injectable is Botox, used for frown lines, crow’s feet and lines on foreheads. Botox works by paralyzing the injected areas so it cannot move. Recovery time for Botox can be as little as one day.

Not all cosmetic surgeries offer long lasting results. Always consult with your physician regarding risks related to your cosmetic procedure.
