Get well cards for Plastic Surgery

Tapping into the pop culture emergence (and acceptance of cosmetic surgery), a company has now designed a line of get well cards for Plastic Surgery patients. Lift Me Up Cards, whose a privately held company based out of Dallas, TX who says they developed these cards "because as they say...everything is bigger in Texas".

A feature in the Florida Sun-Sentinal writes:

"The idea came in 2005 when four of creator Camie Dunbar's family and friends had work done. Dunbar couldn't find suitable cards, so she jotted messages and sketched stick figures. One card for her breast-enhanced friends said, "Congratulations on the Twins!" A liposuction card read, "I thought we could just sit around and chew the fat …"

Enlisting the help of South Florida graphic designer Matt Santamarina, the cards tread where major card companies fear is taboo, Dunbar said."

The line of cards (seen here) includes ones for breast augmentation, breast lifts, liposuction, vein removal, and BOTOX cosmetic.

Why not? Plastic surgery patients need all the encouragement they can get. Going under the knife is never an easy thing. Nice.
