What woman – or man, for that matter – hasn't envisioned their special day at one point or another? Whether you've dreamed of your wedding since you were a child, or are in a serious relationship that seems bound for the aisle, the thought of committing yourself to another in front of your family and friends can lead to hours of blissful daydreaming.
The wedding industry is definitely booming, as Americans everywhere invest thousands of dollars to make sure this day is everything they dreamed of. But, what if you have physical insecurities that keep you from feeling your best, even in a gorgeous pearly white wedding gown? Cue one plastic surgery trend that has gotten national attention in the last few years: bridalplasty. This term has been bandied about for a while now, and was even the name of a short-lived reality show on VH1. The concept is a simple one: undergoing a few nips and tucks to make sure that you love the way you look on your big day.
"The bride wanted to wear a strapless Oscar de la Renta gown but felt self-conscious about [her] scarred shoulder," Dr. Carlin Vickery said of one patient in a press release. He performed a cosmetic scar revision that left his client that truly made all the difference. "She looked and felt gorgeous in her wedding gown."
