More couples are having cosmetic procedures in a united effort to stay attractive and fresh for the sake of their relationships. Even if not booking appointments themselves, partners are also showing more support for each other from consultation through recovery.
The Newest Trend
Historically, cosmetic surgery was never considered a “couples” activity. In fact, quite the opposite. Many people who choose cosmetic surgery still want to keep it a secret from their partners, friends and coworkers. But an increasing number of couples are coming in for enhancement and freshening procedures either together, or at least with the support of their partners.
The encouragement of a partner can go a long way in alleviating some of the reservations or stress commonly felt when considering cosmetic surgery. Having a support network in place both during and after your procedure can make all the difference in feeling positive about results, as well as enjoying an easier recovery.
The fact that the stigma of cosmetic surgery has lifted recently has contributed to this phenomenon. Cosmetic procedures aren’t seen as something to be embarrassed about, but as lifestyle enhancers that can help to boost confidence. In Denver, for example, breast augmentation procedures have been increasing over the past decade, and a large part of this trend can be attributed to the increasing cultural acceptability of cosmetic surgery.
If you are interested in having a cosmetic procedure performed but are unsure as to how to go about telling your partner (or aren’t sure if you should tell your partner), relax and know that it’s normal. But also know that having a supportive partner is becoming the norm rather than the exception as well.
