Cosmetic surgery boosts confidence for brides
17 April 2009When it comes to what's often seen as one of life's most important events, it's no surprise that every woman wants to look her best on her wedding day. Now, many of those brides are turning to cosmetic surgery in order to ensure they look their absolute best when walking down the aisle. According to the Daily Mail, the number of British women turning towards cosmetic surgery procedures before getting married has continued to increase over the past few months. Some surgeons have noted that procedures have increased by 75 per cent since January, and 60 per cent of those women said they were having the surgery specifically for their wedding day. A number of wedding planners have noted that this turn to cosmetic surgery could be attributed to a new style of sleek, fitted wedding gowns that accentuate the body. Maria Yiannikaris, a bridal shop owner in London, said: "Girls say, 'I need to wait for my fitting', then turn up later with very high and firm breasts. "Ten years ago you could not use the word 'sexy' in the same sentence as 'bride' - it was not considered appropriate - but now most brides want to show off their figure."Breast enlargements and liposuction procedures have become the most popular choices for brides, who are looking to correct imperfections and look their best in dresses which enhance these areas. The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons has also noted a 30 per cent increase in the number of women turning up for cosmetic surgery procedures in the past few months, compared to 2007.
