Botox under the tree?
Every December, my husband becomes a little stressed about gift giving. Not only does he have to worry about Christmas, but I also have a December birthday. His mantra becomes “what do you get the woman who has everything and needs nothing?”
Gifts of plastic surgery services have increased over the years with the advent of more non-surgical procedures such as Botox, Kybella, Fillers, Facials, Skin Care Products, and Lasers. While most of these may have less downtime than traditional surgical procedures, plastic surgery itself is increasingly popular and more acceptable to discuss socially as well.
If we choose to gift our loved one plastic surgery, what are some tips to do it right?
- Obously, we want to give something that is desired or wanted. Part of what is involved in choosing a great gift is learning what your loved one desires; frequently, he or she has mentioned something that bothers him or her or has dropped subtle (or not so subtle) hints. I would definitely recommend that you shouldn’t surprise someone with a gift of a plastic surgical service unless it has been communicated and discussed with the giftee.
- Remember that surgery is a medical procedure. While your loved one may desire a tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty), he or she may not be a good surgical candidate. These types of questions can only be answered during an in-person consultation. For this reason, it can be difficult to give a gift of a surgery; however, sometimes fillers, skin care products, or other non-surgical items may be more gift-worthy.
- Similarly, choosing a surgeon is a personal decision. Not every patient will like every surgeon he or she meets – both the surgeon (and the surgeon’s staff) and the prospective patient have to be a good fit. And furthermore, when choosing your surgeon, do check his or her qualifications and ensure that he or she is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
