When you think of the ideal Christmas present for your partner, you usually think of jewelry or a vacation.

But DailyMail.com spoke to plastic surgeons in New York and Los Angeles who said record numbers of couples are gifting surgeries to each other this year, fillers, botox, and liposuction the most popular.

Among those getting plastic surgery for Christmas is Kina Pavarozi, 34, a mother-of-three in Las Vegas, who got a $25,000 nose job and facial fat removal from her husband this year as an early gift for the Holidays.

She told DailyMail.com: ‘Diamonds are great, handbags are great — but there is nothing like something you can wear every day that will make you feel beautiful.’

Among those receiving plastic surgery as a gift this year was Kina Pavarozi, 34, from Las Vegas, Nevada, who got a nose job from her husband. Ms Pavarozi, pictured above after the procedure which was an early Christmas present, said she was thrilled with the results

Ms Pavarozi had a nose job 11 years ago, but it had left both her nostrils virtually blocked and the mother-of-three needing to breathe through her mouth. She is pictured above with husband Freddie Pavarozi, 44, and their three children Koa, five, Kyler, two, and Kayden, one

About 26million Americans now get plastic surgery every year — up 19 percent on 2019 and 30 percent on a decade ago.

Dr Barry Weintraub, a plastic surgeon in New York, told DailyMail.com that the Christmas period ‘is face lift season’.

‘It is winter and winter makes it face lift season,’ he said.

‘Very often, I will have a husband give this as a present to a wife or a wife give it as a present to a husband.

‘Just this morning, I had a couple in who were giving it both to each other — which was amazing.’

Many shoppers give their recipients gift cards for Botox or fillers, which clinics are increasingly offering to keep up with demand in the Holiday season.

Dr Weintraub offers gift cards on his website ranging from $25 to more than $1,000.

Surgeons said they do consultations with all patients before they get the surgery — to ensure it is something they have wanted for years and that they are doing it for themselves.

Ms Pavarozi’s gift was her second plastic surgery after her first procedure 11 years ago for a ‘Barbie nose’ left her struggling to breathe and with a drooped tip.

Ms Pavarozi said the first surgery led to her nostrils being almost completely blocked, leaving her having to breathe through her mouth. 

She also suffered constant headaches and vivid nightmares — where she imagined the house being burgled or her children being kidnapped — which were likely caused by too little oxygen reaching her brain causing problems with her neurons.

This year when husband Freddie, 44, asked what she wanted for Christmas she suggested a nose job — both to sort out her breathing and to get the nose she had ‘always wanted’.

He booked an appointment with Dr Gary Motykie, based in Los Angeles, who did a consultation with the mother before putting her through for surgery.

Ms Pavarozi said for the first week after the surgery she needed a bandage around her face and on her nose — and then needed another two weeks at home to recover and wait for the bruising to disappear.

But after week four, the mother — who is also an influencer with 360,000 followers on Instagram — attended a major event in Las Vegas as her ‘nose coming out’ party.

Ms Pavarozi was thrilled with the surgery, saying her nightmares and chronic headaches disappeared the night of her surgery.

‘I love my new nose,’ she told DailyMail.com. ‘My mom said this is like the nose you should have been given from birth, it fits your face perfectly.

‘I’ve had nothing but positive feedback, even from random people when I am out who come up and say “you have the nicest nose”. I even got carded when I went to the liquor store. 

‘My husband, he said you always looked beautiful — but he is really happy with it and really impressed with the surgery.

‘He said, I really feel good about getting you this because it was my health.’

Dr Weintraub also told DailyMail.com about a couple in their 60s who were gifting each other face lifts this year — after thinking they looked ‘horrible’ in photos.

Both were coming in for face lifts — priced at upward of $70,000 — as an alternative to their ski holiday in Europe that they normally go on. 

Plastic surgeons said as well as couples, people also gift plastic surgeries to friends, children and even their mothers.

Dr Motykie told DailyMail.com it was common for men to gift plastic surgery to their significant others, friends and also their mothers.

But among women, it was most common for them to gift to a friend, then their mother and then a significant other.

He said regularly what happens is one partner goes for surgery and then the other thinks they look so good that they decide they also want the work done.

At his clinic, this year the most popular gift surgeries were Botox, liposuction and mommy makeovers, he said.

Dr Weintraub said another surgery that is gifted at this time of year from parents to children is rhinoplasties.

‘Sometimes, teenage people they grow up and they hate their nose for years on end,’ he said.

‘On numerous occasions over the years, I have had teenagers come in who say they are finally going to get their nose done and their parents are giving the gift.

‘We always do the surgery over the summer inbetween high school and college when they know they can make a permanent change and see a whole bunch of new people.’

Analysts estimate the market for plastic surgeries — already worth $30billion — could be worth more than $60billion by the year 2030.
