Giving Plastic Surgery as a Gift During the Holidays
The concept of giving plastic surgery as a holiday gift has been around for a while. Because of the rising acceptability of plastic surgery and other anti-aging methods and the timing of the year, there has been a rise in the number of cosmetic operations given as holiday gifts. Non-invasive treatments such as Botox and other dermal fillers are becoming increasingly popular when people gather with family and friends for Christmas gatherings.
Buying a gift card for cosmetic procedures, on the other hand, is not as straightforward as it sounds. For instance, it is not possible to schedule a surgery date with a professional, board-certified plastic surgeon right away. Ethical doctors will not consent to perform the procedure on a patient unless they have assessed and concluded that the patient is a suitable candidate for the treatment in question. You could wish to do a breast augmentation, a facelift, or another surgical treatment, but you won't be able to pay for it or set a date until the surgeon agrees that the client is a good fit. In addition, the potential patient must meet with the doctor and feel at ease with them.
Finally, while the intention behind the present may be excellent (for example, providing a breast augmentation to your wife who has regularly discussed it), the receiver of the gift may be offended by the gesture. So, if you are thinking of giving plastic surgery as a gift during the holidays, there are some rules to follow and options to consider, which we will discuss in this post. So, let’s jump into it.
RULES TO FOLLOW WHEN GIVING PLASTIC SURGERY AS A GIFT
Be Mindful of Your Actions
If your beloved one has expressed a desire for a tummy tuck, Botox, facelift, or breast implant, this would be an excellent present. On the other hand, Gifting plastic surgery may come across as insulting if they've never discussed it. As a result, it is essential that you stay sensitive to the receiver's sentiments. We recommend that you wait for your loved ones to express their wish for change. If they show dissatisfaction with their looks, gently bring up the subject of plastic surgery to see how receptive they are to having it. If they answer positively, it might be an excellent present idea!
However, refrain from telling your loved ones what they "should" alter about themselves. Plastic surgery is intended to make a person feel like a more attractive version of themselves. They should not be forced to undergo it because of another person's view of their face or physique.
Assist Them with Their Consultation
Before any plastic surgery operation can occur, the person to whom you have given the gift of plastic surgery will need to undergo a consultation. Once you're sure it's what the other person wants, you may offer them the treatment as a present. Here's an idea: because it's more enjoyable to let your beloved one unwrap a present, make a holiday card for them to unfold, and surprise them with your kind gift that way! There are several clinics that provide gift cards that may be used to pay for Plastic Surgery or Medicated Spa services.
Don’t Schedule Plastic Surgery for Them.
Never arrange a consultation or surgery for someone else. Surprises may turn into annoyances when your loved one seems unable to take time off work or reschedule everyday activities on a date you picked without their permission. Always share any procedure-related dates with the individual you're gifting the surgery to so that they may plan their activities properly.
Choose the only procedure that your loved one mentioned.
When exploring the services of a top plastic surgeon for your partner, be sure that the treatment is one that they have expressly specified. Choosing a cosmetic surgery that hasn't been considering might easily convey the incorrect impression to your partner that you want a change. Here are the most often chosen and gifted cosmetic procedures for your help.
· Liposuction: It is a treatment that suctions fat from particular body regions to
produce a more shapely and leaner profile.
· Tummy tuck: A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a surgical
procedure that removes extra skin and fat from the abdomen while smoothing
and tightening the remaining skin.
· Breast augmentation or reduction: Many women wish to modify the size or form
of their breasts, and there are numerous cosmetic procedures available to help
them achieve their desired look.
· Facelift: This surgery tightens and smooths the face skin to eliminate wrinkles and
soften creases, giving the patient a more youthful appearance.
· Gynecomastia treatment: Many men choose to have extra breast tissue removed.
Gynecomastia therapy is a standard option for men who want to lessen the size of
Do your research but don’t choose the surgeon yourself.
Make sure you do extensive research on board-certified plastic surgeons. It is suggested that you browse their website as well as any online feedback from previous patients. Examine the page devoted to the actual operation your loved one desires so that you can pick who would be the finest surgeon to help them accomplish their objectives.
However, your loved one should have an ultimate say in selecting the plastic surgeon who will conduct the operation. The surgeon you believe is the best may not be the right fit for the recipient's needs. Plastic procedures are very personal, and the patient should always be entitled to choose their surgeon.
Plastic procedures may be excellent gifts, but as previously stated, it is critical to keep the other person's sentiments in mind. If your loved one is already planning to get cosmetic surgery, now is the time to offer them the gift of plastic surgery. When someone expresses an interest in plastic surgery, it's a wonderful opportunity to tell them that you'd want to purchase the operation as a present for them. Otherwise, it might be insulting to them, and they might lose their confidence in their face or body which is the last thing you want your loved one to feel.
