Wedding Trend: Cosmetic Procedures

Updated: Friday, July 18 2014, 12:44 PM EDT

The newest trend in weddings these days is not the dress, the cake, or even the venue.

Sheila Gray reports in tonight's Family 411 that many brides are getting plastic surgery for the big day.

Jessica Warren got married at the end of the May, and instead of having her photos touched up after the wedding, she got a touch-up to her face.

"I think every girl wants to be beautiful on her wedding day, and I just felt like I looked tired," Warren said.

Dr. Alex Donath injected fillers under Jessica's eyes and plumped up her lips and cheeks. Jessica said, "I felt gorgeous."

Bridal and plastic surgery websites say as many as one in three brides consider some type of cosmetic procedure or plastic surgery before the wedding, and about 10% say "I do" to a procedure.

Dr. Donath says it's not all bridalplasty. He says younger brides are more likely to choose fillers, Botox, and chemical peels.

As for Jessica's mom - she went for face lift and an eye lift. Mothers of the bride -- and the groom - are more likely to go under the knife.

If you're thinking about a procedure - whether surgical or cosmetic - do your research and look for a board certified plastic surgeon. Look at before and after pictures, and make sure you give yourself time to heal.
