The trend of giving someone cosmetic surgery as a gift is commonplace in Korea. This trend is starting to hit our shores, seen from the growth of the cosmetic surgery industry here. Not too long ago, cosmetic surgery is all but a hush-hush topic – taboo even. However, with more public figures like celebrities or entrepreneurs being open about their cosmetic procedures, it has become a more open and acceptable topic now. It is currently easier to receive and give cosmetic surgery as society starts to understand more about cosmetic surgery and the increasing transparency of the industry. Cosmetic surgery has come a long way now, with skilled professionals abundant in the industry, ensuring only the best and the safest services are available to you. At Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre, risks are outlined in a transparent fashion during consultations, alongside with the pros and cons of each procedure. This is to ensure expectations control and sound decisions are made. Is it suitable for your mom? What about the idea of giving cosmetic surgery as a Mother’s Day present? This can come in the form of vouchers or gift cards. The idea may be ridiculous to some, and some would even perceive it as an offensive gift. To ensure that this doesn’t happen, you’ll need to know if your mother has been researching or shopping around for cosmetic procedures or if she has been a previous candidate for any procedures linked to cosmetic surgery. If this is true, then surprising your mom with a gift of cosmetic surgery may just be the perfect Mother’s Day present.
