Sydney salon comes under fire for offering cocktails with Botox

Some Champagne with your Botox madame? A Sydney salon has come under fire after it opened a bar within its clutches serving cocktails for its clients.

As reported by The Telegraph, the Christopher Hanna salon in Sydney has started offering its guests the chance to enjoy oysters, caviar, cocktails and fizz during cosmetic procedures like Botox, lip-fillers and nonsurgical facelifts.

The salon is mixing drinks with treatments

Bottles of Champagne cost in the region of £50, and topping the drinks list at the medi-spa clinic is an AU$5,000 bottle of whisky.

The controversial move has been slammed as “unorthodox” by members of the plastic surgery trade, who have criticised the salon for trivialising the industry.

“This is unorthodox, there is often a degree of trivialisation of these types of treatments,” Gazi Hussain, vice president of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons, told The Telegraph.

Christopher Hanna’s co-founder, Sam Badawi, defended the decision to mix drinks with treatments.

“This is a place where people are pampered to the max and everything just flows, from the food to the treatments to the cocktails.

“Whether you’ve booked in for hair styling or having injectables or laser, we’ve designed it so you can have a drink and fine food while you’re having your hair done,” he told The Telegraph.
