If your loved one has long been coveting a certain plastic surgery procedure, then the holidays just might be the perfect time to give them the gift of beauty.
Many people want to start 2015 off with a new look, so they get procedures done in December. The winter is also a popular time for surgery because colder weather means less traveling and sun exposure. People are able to take more days off of work to stay home and recover.
One plastic surgeon told CBS News,"Actually we had several patients that came in today, they're asking their husbands for their Christmas gift now so their husbands came in and put their two cents in. Whether it be for a face lift or even a breast augmentation."
Plastic surgery as a Christmas present is quickly becoming this year's gifting trend. Doctors report that non-invasive procedures, such as Botox, are especially popular.
"It is extremely common, it is very functional because it treats specific problems that people have that makes a difference in the functionality of their face," another plastic surgeon told NBC. "That is one thing that makes it so popular, you don't see it that much in younger ages but occasionally you will."
Before you decide to give the gift of a long-awaited procedure, just make sure that you and your loved one thoroughly research plastic surgeons so you find someone who is experienced and well-qualified. Surgery is always a big decision, and it's crucial to keep health in mind as your top priority.
