Bridal Beauty Becomes More Exciting

There’s always been a lot of pressure on brides to look picture-perfect on the big day, but a recent study by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), suggests that bridal beauty prep is evolving beyond the traditional hair, nails and diet routine to include a new component - cosmetic procedures.

Data shows that weddings are the number one special event driving women of all ages towards aesthetic treatments. Injectables such as BOTOX® and hyaluronic acid, delivering rapid results are an easy favorite. The most popular injection sites include the forehead, cheeks, and lips.

Surgical procedures are gaining popularity as well. New York City facial plastic surgeon Sam Rizk, MD, FACS, has experienced a growing number of brides in his Manhattan waiting room, especially in the months leading up to wedding season. Among the most requested pre-wedding surgical fixes are nose jobs, eyelifts and facelifts for both the brides-to-be and their mothers.

Dr. Rizk says his clients often find their wedding is the perfect opportunity to correct a body issue they have always had. Insecurities are amplified when they realize they will be the center of attention; all eyes will be on them. “Advances in techniques, reduced recovery times and a growing number of non-invasive options make plastic surgery more appealing to brides looking for a quick fix prior to their big day,” states Dr. Rizk. “Wedding photos last a lifetime, and women want to look and feel their best when they walk down the aisle.”

Recognized for his innovative work with 3D High Definition technology, Dr. Rizk’s minimally invasive techniques make plastic surgery a more realistic option for women looking for a confidence boost before they say “I do”. Thanks to highly advanced telescope technology that allows for increased visibility, there is less tissue disruption and swelling, thereby drastically reducing recovery times. The result is extremely natural-looking outcomes with less scarring and bruising.

“With surgical procedures, we recommend brides have the treatment at least six months before the wedding day to allow the look to settle and for all swelling to go down,” says Dr. Rizk. “For less invasive treatments, brides should still plan on having them completed four weeks before the big day.”

Dr. Rizk’s office is located at 1040 Park Avenue in Manhattan.
