For once this is one vent that I’m totally behind the OP. Elective surgery a week before your wedding???? Not cool. I since when is getting anestisia and being put under considered not major surgery. Dr. Oz wouldn’t agree with that. Just cause they call it a nip’tuck doesn’t mean its like getting you teeth cleaned folks. I’m usually in the “you get a day, not a week club” but to me the Bridesmaid or Best Man is being beyond selfish. Her tits could wait a few days after the wedding. Come on.

This shouldn’t affect you in any way. I had mine done on a Friday and I was back to work on the Monday. No one even noticed the change until months after when I wore tighter clothing. She should be fine to be in the wedding party. Maybe she wont dance and drink as much but who cares, you wont even notice that day, you will be in your own bubble with your new hubby! Don’t lose a friend over this.
Also on a side note, maybe she isn’t well off financially and only got the financed. You don’t need to be rich to do that. (Just a thought)

I wouldn’t pay any attention to it. The day of the wedding is your special time to shine. If she is a good friend, I highly doubt she will try to draw attention to her breasts instead of focusing on you.
I do agree with many of the above posters though, she is going to be physically VERY uncomfortable on your wedding. BUT thats her own problem and her own fault.

I think I read three personal accounts from woman having this surgery and the concensus is the pain goes away within a couple days. But I didn’t read that they were spending five hours at a wedding with dancing. She may be capable but I have to wonder if she’ll feel like doing it.
To me it seems the issue will be wearing a strapless dress a week post-op. I’ve not had this particular surgery but with the surgeries I have had I always have brusing and swelling. I’m not sure a strpless dress would feel comfortable over that. Strapless dresses tend to be tight in order to stay up, don’t they?
If she is young she may simply not know better than to schedule this a week before her obligations as a Bridesmaid or Best Man. I would gently inquire about her plans and express concern for her welfare and comfort. She may not have thought of the potential problems. Also, has she been a Bridesmaid or Best Man before this? Maybe she doesn’t know the expectations one would normally have of her time and energy. Little things like doing your hair – did she even think about the pain of using her upper arms that way.
