Robert Grant, M.D. on the Recession's Impact on Cosmetic Surgery

Posted by Admin on November 12, 2010

I like this article because it talks about how effective plastic surgery can be in helping patients achieve their goals in feeling better, looking better and leading fuller lifestyles. Even more interesting than the 2006 studies, the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery has recently released its 2009 data. This is the first data that showed the impact of the recession that began in 2008.

Interestingly enough the number of surgical procedures, while still up dramatically in the ten years since the Society has been reporting this data, dropped for the first time to just under 10 million. The actual number of surgeries dropped 19% but the non-surgical procedures, like Botox and fillers, increased by one percent.

I think that this confirms what the doctors in the article were reporting that patients are turning to procedures that have minimal downtime and afford them improvement that are quicker and less expensive than the open kind of procedures.
