[UPDATED] All I want for Christmas is … plastic surgery from Dr. Wigoda

‘Tis the season for giving, and this holiday season men and women are stuffing their stockings with gift certificates for plastic surgery procedures and cosmetic treatments. This new trend in gift-giving makes Botox and Juvederm injections, breast implants and tummy tucks hot numbers on 2016’s holiday wish list. Therefore, we are upon a busy time not just for Old Saint Nick, but also for plastic surgeons like Fort Lauderdale-based Dr. Paul Wigoda.


Here’s a stocking full of Santa’s Checklist:

For Her

  • O-Shot: Enhance sexual satisfaction and get a rejuvenated look around the skin on the vulva (lips of the vagina)
  • Breast Augmentation: Boost your chest to look your best. Did we mention it’s painless?
  • Face Lifts: Look and feel young as another year goes by
  • Tummy Tuck: Flat and firm frame following childbirth or weight gain
  • Fillers: Wrinkle-free New Year’s Resolution


For Him

People are more willing to make large purchases on gifts during the holidays rather than a birthday or Mother’s or Father’s Day, according to doctors and gift-givers. Plastic surgery procedures are ideal during the holidays because many people have time off of work to undergo treatments and recuperate.

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery strongly suggests that people who accept cosmetic procedures as generous holiday presents are having them done for themselves and not because they were given as a gift from a loved one or friend. It pays to look and feel young and refreshed, so the holidays are perfect for spouses to rejuvenate their look and their love for one another. However, this gift shouldn’t come as a surprise out of the blue – spouses should discuss and be on the same page, so it doesn’t send a wrong message.

“The gift has to be self-motivated and not because the partner is interested,” said Dr. Paul Wigoda, a plastic surgeon in Fort Lauderdale, who contributed to a Sun Sentinel article.

So Dr. Wigoda might not see lines at midnight on Black Friday or husbands and wives scooping up treatments on Cyber Monday, but the holidays are upon us, and plastic surgery can only help impact some action under the mistletoe.
