Plastic surgery may not sound like an exciting Christmas or holiday gift but many people get excited about an image-improving procedure.
The key with this type of gift, however, is to make sure that you are giving it to someone who wants it. You wouldn’t want to give your wife a “mommy makeover,” for example, if she didn’t ask for one. That could mean a very unhappy holiday season.
This is the type of gift that you give yourself or you offer to pay for it for someone you love who doesn’t want to spend the money on themselves.
The gift of cosmetic surgery and non-surgical cosmetic procedures has become more prevalent in recent years. Holiday gift giving has become a growing trend at cosmetic surgery centers across the nation. Most often, these gifts come from a significant other. A survey of RealSelf community members found that, of those who had gotten a procedure as a gift, 75% received it from a romantic partner or spouse.
But, the gift also has drawbacks, one-third of the respondents said they would be offended if a family member, romantic partner or friend gifted them with a cosmetic procedure without asking for it. In some cases, it can raise a red flag and imply either the procedure must be done or the relationship cannot continue.
The gift can be great for someone who really wants plastic surgery but can’t afford it. The procedures can cost several hundred to thousands of dollars, depending on the treatment. Although they can be expensive, however, you can search for specials and some offer no-credit financing.
If someone you know wants to have cosmetic surgery but is hesitant to spend the money, consider giving it to them as a holiday gift. They may not splurge on themselves but that doesn’t mean you can’t! Work with the person to help them get the procedure they want. It doesn’t have to be a surprise on Christmas morning.
