So why do couples get matching cosmetic procedures?
Often it’s something couples do prior to big events like weddings . Other times it’s something to share together, or comes about when one partner is inspired by (or trying to keep up with) the other. But surprisingly, some couples also get cosmetic procedures together so they can look more alike.
What cosmetic procedures do couples normally get together?
Alan Matarasso, a board-certified plastic surgeon in the United States, spoke to Allure about the kind of procedures couples mainly get together. “When we talk about couples, it’s often aging procedures. People are often relatively similar in age so they may have similar complaints,” says Alan.
According to the Khaleej Times, the procedure vary. Requests for couples procedures can range from matching facelifts to dermal filler injections, tummy tucks and liposuction.
Some experts have also spoken out with words of warning for couples thinking about getting matching procedures, especially if the reason is to look more alike. "You don't want to feel pressured into something. You want to do it for your own reasons — not because your spouse wants you to do it. I can't emphasize that enough," Alan told Allure.
