Kim and KanyeThere was no way that American reality television star Kim Kardashian was ever going to settle for anything less than perfection when she married rapper Kanye West.

There is no surprise, then, that Kim is believed to have opted for cosmetic procedures before the ceremony in Florence to make sure she looked as good as the stunning surroundings provided by the Forte di Belvedere, dating from the 16th century.

There has to be some measure of pressure to look and feel flawless when Andrea Bocelli is singing you down the aisle and you’re draped in eye-wateringly expensive Givenchy. Kim more than met the challenge if onlookers are to be believed, however, and the wedding was the perfect culmination to an extravagant weekend of celebrations, which involved a pre-wedding meal at the Palace of Versailles which featured entertainment by David Blaine and Lana Del Ray.

Before the big day

Kim is reported to have started going to the gym more and paying more attention to what she ate in the run up to her nuptials. She is then said to have complimented this with some non-surgical assistance. The effects were stunning as the star, who only gave birth to her daughter, North West, in 2013, looked flawless as she said ‘I do’.

For those people who may be considering their own pre-wedding procedures, here is an idea of what Kim is rumoured to have had carried out to make sure that she was not outshone by the bevvy of other beauties who attended her lavish spectacle.

Body contouring

If reports are to be believed, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians celebrity booked herself in for a series of fat reduction, energy-assisted treatments over the eight weeks before her big day. Celebrity non-surgical favourites such as Exilis Elite, Vanquish, and other body sculpting procedures are a popular pre-wedding choice to tighten skin and banish bulging bellies and wobbly bottoms.

Dieting is a great pre-nuptial solution for shedding excess weight but it cannot always offer the smooth contours that will show off a stunning dress to perfection. This is why many women are now opting for these skin-tightening techniques.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Kim has made no secret of her love of aesthetic procedures to minimise visible signs of aging. She recently Tweeted about her liking for Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRPT), which is still quite a new treatment in Britain. It depends on the body’s own ability to heal itself, thus rejuvenating and repairing damaged skin. It can leave users with a youthful glow, perfect for a blushing bride.

Carboxytherapy

This treatment has many benefits, from treating wrinkles and fine lines and dark rings to improving the appearance of scars and cellulite. It is believed Kim, however, may have turned to the procedure to improve the look of stretch marks. This treatment involves carbon dioxide gas being injected under the skin, which increases the flow of blood and quickens the body’s own natural healing mechanisms.
