The number of people who bought cosmetic surgery for their partners increased by a third this Christmas. Well, it beats slippers and socks!
Hairdresser Katie Southwell, 38, had a £4,500 arm lift paid by her dad and £1,350 worth of facial sculpting as a gift from her husband Dean, 40. She lives in Woodford Green, Essex, and has two sons aged seven and eight. She says:
"When I was 26 I lost five stone in weight. But my weight loss came at a price. The body I was left with was saggy because for so long. Then, two years ago, my sister-in-law won a £5,500 boob job at a raffle. I was a 34A and had been moaning about my shape for ages, she instantly handed the prize to me. I was delighted with the result of the operation which took me to a 36C. But I still couldn't wear strappy tops because I was so self-conscious about my arms. Loose flesh hung like chicken skin and wobbled when I moved."
"No amount of exercise toned my arms up. Then last year my dad's girlfriend bought me a sleeveless top that I couldn't wear. My dad asked me what was wrong with it, and when I told him how embarrassed I was about my arms he couldn't believe it. He offered to pay for me to have them done as a Christmas present."
"I had the bottom halves of my arms trimmed off and my arms stitched back up in February. Three weeks later I was out buying boob tubes and party dresses."
"Then I heard about a new product which fills out hollow cheeks and wrinkles. I told my husband and he said he would treat me to a few sessions to complete my new look in time for Christmas."
"Now my baggy cheeks are fuller and I'm line-free."
