Giving the Gift of Cosmetic Surgery? Proceed With Care
As far as holiday gifts go, cosmetic surgery definitely falls in the “extraordinary” category.Â But it’s not that uncommon.
We know some women who would much prefer a breast augmentation or mommy-makeover to the usual electronics and clothes that get exchanged each year.
â€œThere are a large number of people who really want cosmetic surgery, and they just need that little nudge or incentive to get it doneâ€ says Dr. Mark Berman, President-Elect of the AACS.
However, Berman also offers some crucial advice for those of you considering this type of extraordinary gift: Make sure youâ€™ve discussed the idea with the recipient so it doesnâ€™t come as a total surprise.
A consumer survey conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery revealed that nearly 50 percent of consumers would forego an expensive vacation or even a luxury car to pay for cosmetic surgery.
I’d say those are pretty good odds that your gift will be a satisfying one.
