Traditions are changing just like the times. Although Valentines Day is still an age-old tradition, roses and chocolates are no longer the norm. It is becoming more and more popular for men to buy their girlfriends, wives, lovers and boyfriends or vice versa the gift of cosmetic surgery for Valentines Day.
I know on a number of occasions I have joked (but not really joked) about the idea of getting Botox, to my boyfriend. He never really listens but if my Valentine’s gift turned out to be Botox I wouldn’t be insulted I would be thankful. Because it is something I have obviously thought about.
Recently the Good Surgeon Guide in the UK released a survey that asked ‘If your boyfriend gave you Botox or a voucher for dermal filler for Valentine’s Day would you be happy?’
78% of women polled said they would be impressed. A smaller 15% said they would be mildly pleased, yet concerned. And the remaining 7% said they would be slightly offended or not happy.
This got me thinking. The purpose of Valentines Day is love and to celebrate love. We all know you are a better lover, friend, confidante and all round better person when you feel better about yourself. So what is the problem with a little cosmetic procedure as a gift? If it can enhance confidence, self-esteem and a little self love then isn’t it a good thing? And if your girl has mentioned it but feels reserved about it purely because of the cost then surely it’s a good thing?
Having done some research into the subject it seems there are a few arguments against gifting cosmetic surgery procedures. Depending on the procedure, gifts such as breast augmentations and tummy tucks are serious procedures that need to be well researched and thought out before going ahead with it.
For those guys out there considering to dish out for cosmetic procedure as a gift for their Valentine. Make sure it’s something you know she has been looking into. Know that if you do give her this gift she will be pleasantly surprised not unpleasantly insulted. Certain procedures such as breast augmentations are designed to alter a woman’s body permanently and shouldn’t be a decision that is rushed into. Plus you don’t want your girl thinking you don’t like what she already has to offer you if she hasn’t already expressed her desire for major cosmetic surgery. This will guarantee to ruin the relationship not do any good for it.
And of course any form of major cosmetic surgery should be discussed with a properly accredited and licensed plastic and cosmetic surgeon. Make sure you research the surgeon before hand and if you have any questions about any procedure what so ever you know you can always contact us here at Plastic Surgery Hub and we can point you in the right direction.
