South Florida plastic and cosmetic surgeons say they have seen an increase in the number of couples who seek plastic surgery at the same time. Minimally invasive procedures are often performed on couples during the same appointment, but surgeons try to space invasive procedures a few weeks apart so that one partner can care for the other during the recovery period. Though plastic surgeons are happy to offer procedures to couples, plastic surgeon Shashi Kusuma warns against trivializing surgery "like it's a shopping experience" and urges patients to carefully select a surgeon with the appropriate education, experience and qualifications.
