Brides-to-be are increasingly making cosmetic surgery and non-surgical procedures a part of their preparations, and Botox and laser hair removal are among the most popular treatments. Cosmetic laser technician Kevin Shwenk believes it is because of the short downtime that hair removal and fillers are so popular, and while cosmetic surgeon Dr Wayne Perron agrees, he reports seeing a number of brides-to-be and husbands-to-be for surgical procedures.Male chest reduction and liposuction are top of the list mens requests he tells the Calgary Herald. They want to make sure they are able to take their shirt off and feel comfortable around the pool and beach, says Dr Perron. And while it is true that an engaged couple has a lot to think about in the run-up to the big day, achieving the perfect appearance seems to be taking precedence over finding caterers and booking the honeymoon. Dr Perron says he sees often meets engaged women a year before their wedding day to discuss liposuction that can help to sculpt their dream curves before they choose their wedding dress.
