Giving Plastic Surgery as a Holiday Gift

Giving Plastic Surgery as a Holiday Gift

Berardi Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery has seen plastic surgery given as gifts become a huge trend over the last several years.  Now a common household conversation, cosmetic surgery is popular amongst people of all ages and social circles. Although it may seem a little strange that more people than ever give vouchers for plastic surgery as a holiday gift, it is an increasingly popular trend and one that may be here to stay. The reasons for this are many, but a general public acceptance of such surgeries is driving sales.

Commonly, people who give the gift of plastic surgery tend to pay for things that involve the face. This may include a simple procedure like the injection of dermal fillers, or it may be as complicated as a complete rhinoplasty, brow lift or facelift. Only a few gift-givers turn to procedures such as tummy tucks or breast augmentation, and when they do, it is usually because the recipient specifically asked for the gift.

According to research, significant others are the most likely givers of plastic surgery as a holiday gift. Nonetheless, this same research showed that about a third of those surveyed would feel offended if their friends, family or spouse gifted them cosmetic surgery – unless they specifically asked for it. Despite the fact that giving a facelift as a Christmas gift often implies that the recipient needs a little improvement, which is often seen as an insult, doctors say this is usually not the case at all.
