If you’re in desperate need of a new show to watch on Netflix, look no further than Unveiled. The Australian plastic surgery show chronicles brides who go under the knife before their big day, and we’re seriously obsessed.
In the 2017 series, six Australian couples prepared for their weddings by undergoing cosmetic procedures and dramatically changing their looks. Unfortunately, there’s only one season on the streaming service, but it’s well worth the watch.
Melbourne resident Jackie opts for a nonsurgical nose job and takes on a weight-loss program with her fiancé, Lee.
Surprisingly, getting plastic surgery before your wedding isn’t as unheard of as it may seem. Dr. Andrew Miller, a board-certified plastic surgeon who has practices in New York City and New Jersey, told Hollywood Life, “Usually before a wedding, patients focus on things for their face. The body isn’t as important before a wedding — usually some dieting goes on, but nothing major that could affect the fit of a wedding dress,” he said. “Patients often ask for rhinoplasty because so many photos will be taken. Parents of the bride or groom often ask for eyelid surgery or even a facelift for the same reasons. For anyone in the wedding party, small things like Botox or fillers are often performed for quick and easy improvements.”
According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, 66 percent of AAFPRS surgeons reported that non-surgical procedures are on the rise. Fred G. Fedok, MD, president of the AAFPRS, dished, “Essentially weekly, I see patients that request aesthetic ‘help’ before an upcoming social event. For example, brides and other members of a wedding party have frequently scheduled appointments at the same time. Fillers and neuromodulators can provide some very nice touchups.”
Whether you agree with their decision to go under the knife or not, there is one thing we can all attest to: This show is binge-worthy AF. You’re welcome!
