Venue. Check.

Dress. Check.

Plastic surgery. Check.

These are just a few of the items that have been popping up on Nigerian brides’ wedding checklists recently. 

Nigerian weddings are nothing short of opulent and over-the-top, and Naija brides are doing whatever it takes to look stunning on their special day.  Facial rejuvenation and laser liposuction are just a few of the procedures brides and wedding party members consider having six to eight weeks before the big day.

In the video above, Dr. Chukwuemeka Onyewu of Jamachi Plastic Surgery in Silver Spring, MD and Lagos, Nigeria discusses how plastic surgery is becoming an integral part of Nigerian weddings.  And it’s not just a Nigerian thing, admits Dr. Onyewu. Brides from all over are seeking cosmetic treatments and plastic surgery to guarantee they’re the center of attention on their wedding day.

With local anesthesia, non-invasive technology, and minimal recovery times, looking great for your nuptials is no problem.
