Cosmetic Procedures Prior to Reunions, Weddings or Other Special Events


Everyone wants to look and feel their best when special events such as weddings, high school and college reunions, anniversaries, and those “big decade” birthdays are coming up. Many women and men who have been considering a cosmetic procedure will get their final inspiration to schedule a cosmetic surgery consultation when these important events are looming on their calendars, knowing they want to look their best for friends, family and the all important photographs that will mark the special occasion.

Premier Plastic Surgery and Skin Care Center is dedicated to providing excellence in cosmetic surgery and preventive and anti-aging skin care services. Our surgeons are experts in the field of cosmetic surgery and provide the full range of cosmetic procedures including breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tucks, body contouring after weight loss, as well as Botox Cosmetic and dermal fillers.

If you have been considering a cosmetic procedure before a special event it is best to make an appointment with a plastic surgeon early. For most qualified, board certified plastic surgeons it may take several weeks or longer to get an appointment. If you decide to undergo a cosmetic procedure following your initial consultation, it may take a few more weeks before the surgery can be scheduled.

We see many brides, grooms, parents of the bride and groom, and other members of the wedding party, wishing to enhance their appearance, for a cosmetic surgery consultation before a wedding. In our experience, brides most often are interested in liposuction, breast enhancement and lip augmentation. Many engaged couples’ parents are interested in eyelid surgery, face or neck lifts, and Botox or dermal fillers to help erase wrinkles and fill in lines caused by aging.

It is important to learn as much as possible about any cosmetic procedure you are considering.
We invite you to call one of our Cosmetic Consultants at 913.782.0707 to schedule a consultation with one of our board certified plastic surgeons or licensed esthetician. It is our goal to help you understand the many options available so that your individual beauty needs and expectations are fulfilled in a natural appearing way to the greatest extent possible.
