I am asking this question not to be chastised about my age or whether or not you believe in plastic surgery or not, but because I want to hear from ladies who have dealt with this before. I am a 28-year-old who spent way too much time in the sun as a kid and who recently lost 30 lbs over the last 2 years with diet and exercise. As a result, I have lost a lot of the elasticity in my face and my smile lines and forehead wrinkles (I am VERY expressive with my eyebrows) are getting progressively more noticable in photos. I am thinking about doing some fillers in my cheeks or maybe Botox on my forehead before the big day and could use your input.
Did you decide to do any fillers or Botox injections before your wedding? How old were you? Were you pleased with your decision?

@seharkness86: I haven’t decided but I’m 27 and have a rather prominent frown line across my forehead that I have thought about having filled for the wedding. But I probably won’t just because I’m now so close and I’ve never done it before. I’m worried I won’t like the way it looks honestly.
You’ve still got some time to at least explore your options. Congrats on the weight loss – that’s really awesome!

@seharkness86: get it! I just had Botox and decided to have my lips done and couldn’t be happier. I wish I had done this before my wedding.

I am a lot older than you (46 at the time of my wedding). I had both Botox and fillers done and was happy with them. HOWEVER, I had had previous experience with both, so I knew what to expect. Find a reputable doctor, check references/yelp, etc. You may want to have a dry run with them now if you can afford it – what I have found is that one side of my forehead wrinkles more/faster than the other side, you can end up looking a little lopsided if you don’t know things like this so you can tell the doctor. Fillers can look weird when they are first in, they have to ‘settle’ a little. So get those a couple months out from your wedding and the botox about 3-4 weeks out. Good luck! And remember, you can add MORE filler but you can’t take it out, so go easy at first, you don’t want to look freakish.

I’m25, will be 26 when we get married. Same as you I spent far too much time in the son and have a 6minth old and 2 year old so I haven’t slept in a while. My family ages poorly, my aunt is 27 and has deep forehead lines so I know I’m not just being to hard in my self. I just got 20 units as I “trial” before my wedding. I’m really happy with it. No it’s not a noticeable change to other people but I feel like it will give me the added confidence of not stressing about facial expressions during my wedding photos. That I can look and acted totally natural and I won’t have wrinkles and expression lines on my weddings photos.
after our wedding I won’t continue for a couple years just because of the cost and will wait to do it just because til my 30’s
