With Christmas day just around the corner, shoppers’ emotions are running high as they rummage through vacant store aisles and surf the internet for last minute shipping dates. Finding the perfect present for the man or woman who has everything can be stressful, especially when time is scarce. But surprisingly enough, this year’s gift giving dilemmas could be solved with a simple call to a local plastic surgeon’s office.
More and more men and women are choosing to purchase gift certificates or surgical consultations for loved ones this Christmas. Popular procedures such as breast augmentation, liposuction and Botox injections are topping many Christmas lists this year according to Tampa based plastic surgeon Dan Diaco, MD.
“It makes a wonderful present. Most girls are very, very, very, happy to get something like this under the tree,” says Diaco.
Men are also happy recipients of plastic surgery gifts for Christmas. According to Diaco, the most requested procedures for men are Botox injections, frequently referred to as “bro-tox.” Men also lean towards chemical peels which can treat a variety of superficial skin problems such as sun damage and fine wrinkles, as well as Juvederm injections which can reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles and add volume to the skin.
Diaco insists that the end results are priceless: “Their face lights up. They get excited. It changes their lives.”
Plastic surgery may be the perfect gift for your “someone special” this year, but remember that it’s important to seek out a board certified plastic surgeon. Thorough surgical consultations and evaluations are essential to determine if a patient is an ideal candidate for plastic surgery.
If you’re planning to give the gift of cosmetic enhancement this year, it’s best to give an envelope filled with informational brochures because in most cases, you will not be able to purchase the procedure without a patient consultation first.
