Brides Going Under the Knife
12/17/2012On Friday, we met Katie Adams, a bride who has just gotten a lip enhancement in preparation for her wedding, and watching the episode inspired me to write about plastic surgery this week—since it's quite common here in Beverly Hills.
I think plastic surgery—done correctly and conservatively—can increase a person's self esteem. Therefore, if a bride feels she needs plastic surgery, why not perform it prior to the wedding? Most brides will diet, have trial hair and makeup sessions, shop for honeymoon bikinis, and so on, so a procedure can certainly be included in their "must-do" lists if they feel they need it!
But before making a decision, here is some advice for brides considering having some work done: consider whether it be purely aesthetic or correctional. For example, many women have one breast significantly larger than the other, so as an introduction to her "Mrs. status", she may want to have this procedure done prior to the wedding. After all, our priorities shift greatly once that ceremony has taken place. Even if two people live with one another many years, marriage
changes things. So, get these things out of the way before the big day. Another popular procedure is eyebrow tattooing. If a bride wants that done, I suggest doing it long before the ceremony.
Something brides should keep in mind is the potential impact plastic surgery can have on their wedding plans. Plastic surgery that changes the physical shape, be it breast augmentation, liposuction, etc, can affect the gown you have chosen and purchased, as well as take some time to heal from. Therefore, timing is critical. If there is not sufficient time to heal prior to the big day, not only may you physically feel discomfort, but the swelling may not have gone down and you still shall look swollen and strange to many (as well as to yourself!).
Also keep in mind that, if a procedure is not done by a doctor that specializes in that particular area, the results may be rather dismal. So, make sure the doctor is highly recommended for what you plan to have done
As for me, in Season 1, Kevin pushed me to have a face-lift. In Season 2, Kevin urged
me to have liposuction. Let's see how it all pans out in Season 3! The best is yet to come!
