A growing number of brides-to-be are paying for plastic surgery ahead of their big day to ensure they look at their absolute best when they tie the knot. Forbes magazine noted how many women opt to get their teeth whitened so they have the perfect smile when the camera bulb flashes, while many hold the view that because their wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime occasion, they have an excuse to splash out on surgery.Dr Paul Jarrod Frank, founder and director of the 5th Avenue Dermatology Surgery & Laser Clinic, said: “Brides view cosmetic quick fixes as a well invested part of the wedding photo that they will forever cherish. “Although not inexpensive, the costs of Botox, fillers or lasers do generally dwarf the big ticket costs of a wedding.” Dr Marc Lowenberg, who is a cosmetic dentist based in New York, agreed and noted that even though the world is going through a period of economic downturn, brides are still prepared to spend money on improving their smile for their wedding day.
