Plastic surgery is becoming increasingly popular around the world. Some people prefer non-surgical procedures, while others go under the knife for a bigger change.
Plastic surgery has gone to the next level in recent years, and people are now gifting surgery. Imagine waking up on Christmas morning to a gift card for your doctor’s office.
However, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons found that a whopping 27% of women would like to receive plastic surgery as a gift. The most popular ones are liposuction, facelifts and Botox.
Let’s take a closer look at how the surgery gift trend started.
The push present
In the US, mothers who had recently given birth started receiving ‘push presents.’ These presents could be anything from a ring to plastic surgery. New mothers are given a ‘mommy makeover’ to help them recover from the impact of birth. Usually, this mommy makeover includes a tummy tuck to remove excess skin, fatty tissue and stretch marks. In some cases, the woman will also have a breast enlargement to improve the lift and volume of her chest after surgery. These procedures are only recommended if you do not plan to have any more children.
Celebrity Botox parties
Celebrities across the world have started hosting Botox parties for their friends. In the hit Netflix reality show, Selling Sunset, Christine Quinn hosts a ‘burgers and Botox’ party for her colleagues. The real-estate agent hosts the party while showing potential buyers around her new listing. It seems people across the world are following suit and throwing their very own Botox and prosecco gatherings.
Korean parents and their graduation gifts
Many Koreans believe that first impressions are very important. Beauty is considered a strength in Korean culture, and many believe it’s the key to landing your dream career. Some Korean parents offer plastic surgery to their children as a gift for graduating from university. They usually have double eyelid surgery to make their eyes appear larger.
The Brazilian Butt lift
The BBL is one of the most dangerous cosmetic procedures you can have done. It involves removing fat from other parts of your body and injecting it into your bum. Your bum will be rounder and fuller than before. Girls all over the world are opting to get the BBL, despite the surgical risks.
Plastic surgery can make a person feel beautiful inside and out.
