As we say goodbye to the holiday season, it looks as though a new trend has cropped up and it might just be one to stick around. Gift cards have been the number one gift for the past few years because they allow people to use money provided to choose a gift that they truly need or want. Cosmetic procedures can be costly, and for many American men and women, plastic surgery falls at the top of their wish list. So it only makes sense that gift cards and that world of plastic surgery would collide eventually!
Those providing plastic surgery gift cards have them work the same way as a gift card to Amazon or Starbucks. The person buying grabs a card and loads it with any amount they’d like. They can choose a flat amount randomly, or calculate the funds required for a specific cosmetic procedure, like a Botox injection.
Plastic surgery as a gift in other scenarios has been a source of controversy (for example, overseas where plastic surgery is being used to reward students for completing their University applications), but this format still allows more freedom of choice, so it’s sure to be better embraced!
