Your wedding is an exciting day and should be one of the happiest days of your life. But there is so much planning that goes into a wedding, sometimes we neglect ourselves. We all want to look beautiful and be comfortable on our wedding day. Looking after ourselves shouldn’t fall to the wayside in the face of other plans. If you want to pursue a plastic surgery procedure before your wedding day, like a Breast Reduction, it is important to be prepared well ahead of time.
A Matter of Planning
We all want to look fantastic on our wedding day, but too often our plans fall by the wayside. If you want a Breast Reduction procedure before your wedding day you must give yourself plenty of time to heal. Breast surgery procedures require a minimum of 6 weeks to heal and give yourself the best chance to minimise scarring.
Don’t Make Snap Decisions
A Breast Reduction procedure is not something to take lightly. Like all surgical procedures there are risks involved. Choosing to undertake surgery isn’t a decision you should make on the fly. If you’ve been wanting to get a Breast Reduction for years, then having it done before you wedding might be the perfect time to do so! It will make you feel far more comfortable and confident being the centre of attention.
What to Know Before Scheduling Surgery
It is important to ensure you give yourself plenty of time to rest and recover after surgery. Planning to have your procedure well before your being day – and before the bulk of making your decisions – is incredibly important. You need at least 2 weeks of rest and 6 weeks before you can return to normal activities. The reason we recommend this amount of time is to ensure you heal appropriately and have the best scarring results possible. Further you want to give yourself plenty of time in case something doesn’t go entirely to plan. Finally, the full results of your surgery can take from 6 to 18 months to show as it can take time for the swelling to completely subside. So make sure you plan well in advance! You want to be fully healed for your special day.
