As the holidays approach, plastic surgery procedures are on the rise. Both women and men want to look their best for holiday festivities and family pictures, and non-invasive cosmetic procedures are a simple way to achieve smoother, more youthful features. Cosmetic surgeries like tummy tucks and breast augmentations also rise in popularity during the holidays, generally in late November early December. It seems only natural that loved ones would take note of this trend in cosmetic procedures and tuck plastic surgery consultations and gift certificates underneath the Christmas tree.

The Gift That Keeps Giving

wrapped christmas giftsWouldn’t it be nice if, instead of a new shirt or coat, you could give loved ones the gift of confidence? The gift of plastic surgery does just that. Whether you’re buying your husband an anterior necklift, giving your sister a Juvaderm filler, or buying your daughter a chemical peel, you’re not just ticking another item off their Christmas list. Plastic surgery helps patients feel more comfortable in their own skin, giving them a peace and confidence that’s truly beautiful to behold.

Giving Plastic Surgery as a Present

The danger in buying a loved one a cosmetic procedure lies in making them feel less beautiful instead of more beautiful. That’s why gifts like surgery are best discussed before you put them under the tree. Plastic surgery makes a thoughtful gift for someone who has expressed the desire to undergo a procedure. However, loved ones should never make the mistake of reading between the lines. A treatment like a Glycolic Acid peel or Microdermabrasion treatment – cosmetic procedures that rejuvenate the skin and remove dead skin cells – make excellent gifts for nearly anyone, but giving someone a “surprise surgery” tells them you’re not satisfied with the way they look. Plastic surgery should always be up to each individual patient, a way for them to get the body of their dreams, not the body their spouses, family, or friends think they need.

When Buying the Gift of Plastic Surgery

If your loved one has a facelift, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, or non-surgical procedure on their to-do list, they’ll probably be thrilled to receive it as a Christmas gift. If you’re giving the gift of plastic surgery this year, remember:

  • All patients must be evaluated by Dr. Brantner prior to surgery. He reserves the right determine whether the procedure is appropriate for the patient.
  • Always discuss the desired procedure with your loved one before you plan it.
  • Leave all the details up to the patient.
  • Cosmetic surgery makes an incredible gift, but if you lack the funds, you can cover the consultation fee instead.
  • Consider giving the gift of plastic surgery before Christmas day so your loved one can be more confident for holiday family photos.
