Did you know that upwards of 40 percent of engagements occur between November and February! Perhaps not too surprising, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years’, and Valentine’s Day are amongst the most popular days for men to get down on one knee. Being right in the midst of engagement season, Dr. Hernandez has had an increasing number of brides-to-be inquiring about cosmetic enhancement at Eterna Cosmetic Surgery before their big day.
Whether you choose one or several cosmetic procedures, Dr. Hernandez can help you look and feel your best on your wedding day. While your wedding day may seem far away now, it will be here before you know it! Here is a timeline to count you down to your special day!
Six Months or More Before: Breast Augmentation
With the addition of a saline or silicone implant, breast augmentation adds a natural-looking fullness to better fill out your wedding dress. Enhancing both the breasts’ size and shape, breast enhancement creates and flatters your bridal silhouette.
As with any surgical procedure, breast augmentation should be performed sooner rather than later. Over the months leading up to your wedding, your implants will continue to appear more natural as they drop and settle into place.
Three Months Before: Liposuction
Some pockets of stubborn fat can resist any pre-wedding diet. Liposuction effectively removes hard-to-target fat cells to slim and contour your bridal physique. Slip into your wedding dress without the worry of troublesome areas including the face, arms, stomach, love handles, hips, and thighs.
Using the latest technology, Dr. Hernandez is able to perform liposuction through a small incision. While liposuction is a gentle procedure, it generally takes one to three months for all of the swelling to dissipate and for the final contour to be obvious.
One Month Before: Injectable Treatments
Non-surgical injectable treatments are a last minute favorite for many of our San Antonio brides! And it is not just the brides that love injectables—Dr. Hernandez often treats the entire wedding party, including the groom, mother of the bride, groomsman, and bridesmaids. Botox® and Dysport® keep you looking worry free by relaxing wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. Dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm® Ultra, Ultra Plus, and Voluma®, as well as Restylane® and Restylane Lyft, can enhance your appearance by adding volume to sunken cheeks, smoothing lines and wrinkles, and plumping thin lips.
Before such a big event, Dr. Hernandez recommends that patients get any injectable treatment at least one month ahead—especially for those new to injectables. If you respond favorably, you can always get a touch up closer to your wedding day.

When it comes to your wedding day, you want everything to be perfect—especially your appearance. As with the rest of your wedding arrangements, you will want to be organized and plan ahead. Remember, each body, breast, and facial enhancement requires a different amount of downtime. Schedule your appointments far enough in advance so you can achieve optimal results and have a sufficient recovery period.
Dr. Hernandez is honored to be a part of your day! Together, the two of you will come up with a cosmetic plan to make sure you look (and feel) your best for your big day.
