If you’re planning a wedding soon, you must be planning your beauty regimen. Every bride and groom wants to look and feel their best on their big day.


At Mentor Plastic Surgery and MedSpa, we understand the importance of your wedding day and are here to help you look and feel your best. We offer various services to bring out a radiant complexion, from HydraFacials to laser treatments.

For many approaching their much-anticipated wedding day, visiting a plastic surgeon like Dr. Paul Vanek, MD, is a great way to look their best before the big day. We offer several cosmetic surgery procedures perfect for achieving just that little bit of extra perfection for one of the most important days of their lives.

At Mentor Plastic Surgery and MedSpa, we offer guidance when considering cosmetic procedures and ensure they flow smoothly. 

Body Enhancement Procedures

Procedures for body enhancement allow the bride to fit into that perfect wedding dress in the most attractive way possible.

Standard body enhancement procedures include:

  • Breast augmentation
  • Liposuction
  • Other augmentation procedures

These body-enhancing procedures help sculpt body contours and achieve a perfect figure, ensuring that all your wedding pictures look great.

Enhancement of Face and Neck

These procedures include facelifts, rhinoplasty, skin tightening, and others that can refine specific features of the face and neck. These treatments—often with no recovery period—can help.


The correct procedure timing is essential, as you don’t want to experience any redness or other minor visible side effects that might occur several days after the treatment.

  • For non-invasive procedures, it is recommended that treatments begin at least a year before the wedding and continue regularly during that year.
  • Skincare treatments should be ramped up approximately six weeks before the wedding. Surgical procedures should be completed far in advance to allow your body to look its best after healing.
  • Body contouring procedures such as liposuction or breast augmentation should be completed at least six weeks before dress fitting appointments.

Minimally-Invasive Treatments

You’ve picked your color theme, sampled the food, and even planned out your seating chart—but, dear bride-to-be, have you put much time and thought into yourself? Studies show that cosmetic treatments for brides are on the rise. There was reportedly a 30 percent increase in people considering cosmetic procedures as part of their wedding prep.

While cosmetic surgery takes months of planning, almost any bride can see visible benefits from today’s quick, zero-downtime treatment options.

At Mentor Plastic Surgery and MedSpa, in addition to our full range of Aesthetician Services, we offer several proven non-surgical and minimally invasive treatments. Here is our list of favorite subtle bridal “tweakments” to help ensure you feel picture-perfect on your wedding day. 

1. Cosmetic Injectables

For brides seeking a non-surgical treatment that is quick, nearly painless, and has no downtime, injectables like BOTOX and dermal fillers are a great option.

Neuromodulators like BOTOX & Dysport

Neuromodulators, like BOTOX and Dysport, work to disable muscles subtly in targeted areas of the face by temporarily stopping some nerve signals to the muscle—thus beautifully smoothing out wrinkles and lines around the eyes, forehead, and between the eyebrows. When working neuromodulators into your pre-wedding beauty checklist, just be aware that the treatment must be touched up every 4-6 months. 

Dermal Fillers

Expertly-placed dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm® or Restylane®, can correct several common skin concerns and enhance certain features or aspects of the face. Suppose you’re a soon-to-be bride seeing signs of aging or volume loss around the cheeks, under the eyes, or around the mouth and lips. In that case, dermal fillers are a great way to ensure you look refreshed and rejuvenated on your wedding day. Ideally, plan about a month ahead to allow time for your results to settle and any subtle touch-ups you may want.

Dermal fillers are an excellent option for brides who want to add a little volume to their cheeks or plump up their pout before their big day. 

2. Microneedling

Traditional Microneedling

If regular microneedling treatments aren’t already a part of your skincare regimen, a few months before your wedding is a great time to start.  

Traditional microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, uses a unique device with several tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating collagen production. 

Microneedling is highly effective in treating scars caused by acne and fine lines, reducing pores, and improving skin texture. It is safe for all skin types, and downtime is minimal. While just a single treatment can yield impressive results, we recommend brides start six months in advance and receive a series of treatments to achieve transformative results in time for their wedding. 

3. Laser Skin Resurfacing

Many brides opt for laser skin resurfacing treatments to ensure their skin is plump, smooth, and radiant on their wedding day. Laser skin resurfacing treats dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage and retextures crepe-like skin and fine lines. The treatment’s ability to treat acne scars and wrinkles makes it an excellent fit for brides of all ages. 

4. HydraFacial

Suppose you’ve never had one of these extraordinary facial treatments. In that case, the perfect time to start is the months, weeks, and even days before your wedding. HydraFacials are all the rage because they are quick and practical and can exfoliate, refresh, and hydrate all skin types.

The hydra-dermabrasion procedure cleanses and extracts impurities. At the same time, rejuvenating serums are infused into your pores. Hydra-dermabrasion is customizable to meet your specific skin care needs.

You can also schedule your final HydraFacial 3 to 4 days before your wedding. Your skin will be glowing and refreshed in your wedding photos. 

5. Dermaplaning

Skin that feels baby-soft to the touch is the result of dermaplaning. Your skin is lightly grazed at the surface with a surgical instrument. This sloughs off the top layer of your skin, including any dead skin cells or fine hair. This leaves your skin with an incredibly soft and smooth surface, evens the texture. Dermaplaning is exfoliating your skin so your makeup will be flawless.

6. Renuvion®

If you’re looking to tighten and sculpt your face, neck, arms, abdomen, or thighs, Renuvion® might be an excellent fit. Renuvion is an innovative treatment that combines helium Plasma and Radiofrequency energy to contour from within without extensive surgery, extended downtime, or large, noticeable scars. While slightly invasive, this in-office procedure offers results that rival surgery. 

During a Renuvion treatment, Dr. Vanek creates a small incision that is the entry point for placing the device just under your skin. The device then releases pro helium gas and radiofrequency energy to create a powerful, precise plasma energy stream. The energy generates heat to contract the skin, while excess helium gas cools the area. This combination of hot and cold energy tightens the tissues under the skin, providing dramatic and precise contouring results. 

While Renuvion provides exceptional results on its own, it can also be combined with liposuction to treat particularly stubborn fat and address sagging skin in areas such as the arms, thighs, and abdomen in just a single treatment

Recovery involves 3-5 days of downtime and a few weeks of restricted activity. Still, the results can be well worth the investment. As such, it’s best to have your Renuvion treatment at least a month before your big day.

Bonus Tip: Whatever procedures you choose, optimize your results with medical-grade skincare to ensure your skin is radiant and glowing on your wedding day.
