Getting married for many people is one of the most important days of their life and it is natural for every bride to want to look and feel their best, and today that quite often means cosmetic surgery. In Marbella especially, there is a pressure to not only have the perfect hair, make up and dress but also to have a great bikini body!

Let’s not forget, that it isn’t only the bride who wants to look radiant in the wedding photos and as they walk down the aisle, the grooms want to look buff too. This means that in addition to the perfect wedding dress, venue and catering, finding the best plastic surgeon in Marbella could be near to the top of a wedding planners list!

Pietro di Mauro, one of the most experienced and best cosmetic surgeons in Marbella, explained that if you are considering undergoing any cosmetic procedures, such as a nose job, boob job or facelift before the big day you should plan at least 12 months ahead. Patients undergoing surgical procedures need to allow time to fully heal… and you’ll need to make sure that your outfit is designed to fit your newly contoured body!

Cosmetic surgery timeline

Before making any decisions about undergoing cosmetic surgery, it is essential to have a pre-operative consultation to discuss your requirements and expectations and decide upon the best treatment to achieve the desired results.  Once you have undergone the operation, Dr. di Mauro will provide you with a personalised post-operative programme outlining the steps required to fully recuperate, when to expect the removal of any compression garments, resume normal activities, start exercising or going out in the sun etc.  And of course, it will take time for any scars to disappear.

Here are the three most popular cosmetic surgery procedures before a wedding amongst brides and grooms-to-be:

1.Boob job (breast augmentation)

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures as a woman’s breast are an important part of a woman’s self-image. This is particularly true on their wedding day, when all eyes are on the bride.  Think of strapless gowns and traditional off the shoulder styles and nipped in waists, all are designed to draw attention to the bride, particularly the chest area.

A boob job doesn’t need to inflate the size, the operation is also carried out to create rounder, more symmetrical pert breasts, creating a younger healthier looking silhouette, and improving the line of the wedding dress. Most of all, this type of cosmetic surgery can boost the bride’s self-confidence making her feel more self-assured on her big day.


Many brides dream of gliding down the aisle in a formfitting dress without any visible lumps or bumps ruining the effect. Yet, sometimes there is only so much that can be achieved by following a healthy diet and exercise regime, as some stubborn pockets of fat just refuse to disappear.  This can be extremely upsetting, making people feel self-conscious about these parts of their body.  An increasingly popular solution is liposuction, which uses a cannula to drain stubborn areas of fat from the body to create smoother contours.  Dr. di Mauro is one of the few cosmetic surgeons in Marbella to use the revolutionary vaser lipo technique (see our blog for further details).

3.Rhinoplasty (nose job)

Wedding photos are a treasured keepsake, which spurs on many happy couples to consider how to improve their features, and Rhinoplasty, (or a nose job) is one of the common cosmetic surgery procedures. The nose is the defining part of the face, even a small tweak dramatically alters the balance of the face and can boost confidence. Dr. Pietro di Mauro uses the very latest rhinoplasty surgery method; Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty that allows more delicate procedures with reduced recovery time.
