For many years now, brides have been able to benefit from cosmetic procedures that help them look and feel their best on their wedding days. Today, more and more grooms are also seeking cosmetic surgery procedures for the same reasons; plus, wedding and honeymoon photos eventually become family heirlooms that get passed on from generation to generation. Who doesn’t want to be remembered at their best and most attractive on one of the biggest, most memorable days of their life?
The most popular pre-wedding cosmetic procedures — according to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) — are Botox®, dermal fillers, chemical peels, facelift surgery, eyelid surgery, and rhinoplasty. Some men also opt for Kybella® to treat double chins, and liposuction to remove stubborn pockets of fat from certain areas.
Here’s a close look at the most common cosmetic procedures men seek before their wedding days.
Botox, dermal fillers, and Kybella
Botox and dermal fillers such as Juvederm®, Radiesse®, and Voluma XC® are ideal for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles to produce a more youthful-looking appearance. The benefit to undergoing Botox and dermal filler treatment is that these procedures offer minimal recovery and downtime. Grooms who want last-minute touch-ups can receive treatment just days before their weddings without having to worry about long-term recovery.
Kybella, which is an FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment, has been shown to help eliminate double chins. Men who have excess fat or experience sagging in their chin regions can benefit from Kybella injections, which have the ability to destroy fat cells and prevent them from storing or accumulating fat after treatment.
All three of these treatments are highly popular pre-wedding treatments due to their minimally invasive nature and quick recovery time.
Facial cosmetic surgery
Older grooms who want a more youthful-looking face can look into facial rejuvenation procedures such as facelift surgery, blepharoplasty, and rhinoplasty. These procedures are designed to help grooms look and feel younger and more vibrant — which goes a long way with self-confidence — and wedding photos.
A facelift can help improve visible signs of aging in the face and neck by reshaping excess fat and tightening underlying muscles for a more streamlined, masculine appearance.
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can help improve the sad and tired appearance of eyes, and eliminate drooping and puffy bags that might even be interfering with vision. Men who are unhappy with the appearance of their noses can opt for rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, which can reduce or increase nose size or change the shape of the nose and nostrils.
Body contouring procedures
When rigorous exercise and a healthy, steady diet in the weeks before the wedding fail to help the body slim down, body contouring procedures such as liposuction and tummy tuck surgery can come to the rescue.
Grooms who have adequate time to prepare for and recover from surgery can choose tummy tuck surgery, which removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal region and tightens abdominal muscles.
Grooms who require less downtime and recovery can opt for liposuction instead, which removes unwanted fat from specific areas such as the abdomen, hips, buttocks, upper arms, chin, cheeks, and neck. Liposuction is effective at targeting stubborn areas of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise, and ideal for treating the areas men want slimmed down before their weddings and honeymoons.
