Before you say, “I do,” discover how bridal makeover procedures can make your wedding one to remember.

Am I A Candidate for Bridal Makeover Treatments?

At your initial consultation, Dr. Desman can better determine whether you’re a good candidate for your desired procedures. Fortunately, many bridal makeover treatments are non-invasive. As a result, there are fewer risks involved. Botox® and dermal fillers are recommended for brides over the age of 18 who are not pregnant and are unhappy with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Skin peels can also be safely carried out on most healthy people in Alexandria and Northern Virginia. For more invasive bridal makeover procedures like liposuction and breast augmentation, Dr. Desman will need to assess your current health and medical background to decide whether you’re a good candidate.

What Does a Bridal Makeover Entail?

There are a handful of procedures associated with a bridal makeover, including but not limited to:

Botox® Injections

Botox® is one of the most common bridal makeover treatments performed on Northern Virginia and Alexandria patients. Many brides are drawn to this procedure for its ability to quickly reduce fine lines and wrinkles. If you’d like facial rejuvenation without the downtime of surgery, you’re likely an excellent candidate for Botox®. This treatment is effective at smoothing out lines and wrinkles in the forehead, around the eyes, and around the mouth. Botox® is recommended three weeks prior to your wedding.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers like Juvéderm®, Volbella®, and Voluma® can be used to correct creased, wrinkled, or aging skin. Filler is injected into the skin to fill out lines and create fuller lips. It is even effective against stubborn areas like marionette lines and nasolabial folds. Dermal injectables are another great option for brides who’d like to rejuvenate their appearance without surgery. Dermal injectables are recommended three weeks prior to your wedding.

Skin Care

Sometimes, a simple skin care adjustment is all you need for a totally refreshed appearance. The prescription-strength skin care products available at the Virginia Center for Plastic Surgery will give you beautiful, vibrant skin just in time for your wedding day. From skin restoration creams to brightening retinol serums, Dr. Desman has an assortment of skin care products to treat your specific problem areas. It is recommended that you begin your skin care routine at least four months prior to your wedding.


Even with diligent exercise and a healthy diet, there are some areas of the body that tend to hold stubborn pockets of fat. Not only can it make you self-conscious, but it may prevent you from fitting perfectly in your wedding gown. Liposuction can be performed nearly anywhere – including your things, buttocks, tummy, love handles, arms, neck, and chin – allowing you to target the exact areas you need to achieve your cosmetic goals before your wedding. You should pursue liposuction four months before your wedding.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is often sought by Alexandria and Northern Virginia brides, who want to restore shape, volume, and symmetry to their breasts. And when it comes to your wedding day, perfectly proportioned breasts can help you fill out your gown beautifully. At your bridal makeover consultation, Dr. Desman can assess your frame and determine what size and type of implants would best balance out your figure. Breast augmentation is recommended four months before your wedding.
