Holiday Gift Guide:
Posted on December 15, 2015
According to several news sources, gifting plastic surgery has become an increasingly popular trend in recent years. Among the most popular procedures are nonsurgical treatments like peels and dermal fillers. Other procedures include body contouring procedures such as liposuction and tummy tuck surgery.
Despite its rising popularity, gifting plastic surgery is still a sensitive subject. To an outsider, it may send a message that you think your loved one needs to improve their appearance. On the other hand, if your loved one has expressed that they want to improve their appearance with a cosmetic procedure, they will most likely appreciate the gesture.
If you are considering gifting plastic surgery to a loved one this holiday season, there are a few things you need to know first. In this blog post, Palm Beach Gardens plastic surgeon Dr. David Rankin offers several guidelines to consider when gifting, as well as appropriate treatment gift ideas.
When Plastic Surgery Gifting is Appropriate
The decision to undergo plastic surgery (both surgical and nonsurgical) is a personal decision that should be made only by the recipient. Dr. Rankin recommends you only gift plastic surgery to someone who has already expressed interest in pursuing cosmetic treatment. Here are some additional suggestions for gifting plastic surgery:
- Determine the recipient’s cosmetic concerns and goals. Have they expressed a desire for larger breasts, a toned tummy or smoother, younger-looking skin?
- If they haven’t mentioned a specific procedure, research services that may address their concerns. For more information, reach out to a board-certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. Rankin.
- Have the recipient call the plastic surgeon’s office to schedule a consultation. The surgeon can advise whether the individual is qualified for a particular treatment.
Cosmetic Enhancement with Aqua Plastic Surgery
At Aqua Plastic Surgery, we offer a range of cosmetic treatments for an improved appearance.
For a younger-looking appearance, we offer both surgical and noninvasive treatments. Facelift surgery lifts and tightens skin that has become saggy and loose over time. The result is a younger-looking facial appearance. Botox is a quick and temporary solution for wrinkles and crow’s feet. Dermal fillers like Radiesse fill in creases and lines, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
For sun damaged skin, we offer laser skin resurfacing treatments, such as the Fraxel laser treatment. The treatment uses pulsating beams of light to diminish old, damaged skin cells and make way for healthy skin cells. Chemical peels and microdermabrasion are also great options to treat discoloration, age spots, wrinkles and other signs of sun damage.
For fuller breasts, breast augmentation surgery can be performed. We offer both saline and silicone implants to satisfy the needs and goals of each patient. If your loved one desires perkier breasts, breast lift surgery may be a more appropriate option.
For a slim and trim physique, liposuction can be performed on several parts of the body, including the abdomen, hips, arms, thighs and buttocks. Tummy tuck surgery and body lifts are performed to eliminate drooping, sagging skin for a more beautiful body figure.
