All I want for Christmas are breast implants (preferably those new gummy bear ones I keep reading about) and maybe a little Botox for my frown lines so I donâ€™t look quite so angry in this yearâ€™s holiday photos (even if I am)!
Nothing against the usual fare. I truly loved last yearâ€™s slippers and robe set, but this year Iâ€™m all about self improvement.
Many plastic surgeons report that Santa Claus may be getting a lot of requests just like this one from good girls and boys. In fact, cosmetic physicians say they do twice as many procedures per day during the holiday hustle and bustle than the entire rest of the year!
â€œBOTOX is a very-requested holiday gift by men and women alike, and in age ranges anywhere from the 20s and up,â€ says New York City board-certified plastic surgeon Barry Weintraub, MD. Breast-augmentation surgery is another fave, he adds. â€œIt is very important that the patient herself is the one who requests the surgery, rather than being under pressure from a significant other.â€
Besides breast implants and BOTOX, pricey procedures such as liposuction, tummy tucks, eyelid surgery, and nose jobs are also high on the holiday wish lists this year. Some are just hoping for minimally invasive stocking-stuffers such as soft tissue fillers, laser hair removal sessions, and microdermabrasion or chemical peels to improve their complexions, according to the statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
