Plastic Surgery…What do you think?
Plastic surgery isn’t just for celebrities anymore. More and more men and women are looking to plastic surgery for a quick fix. The number of procedures available is incredible with everything from the most popular breast augmentation to arm lifts and fat grafting. It’s no surprise it seems everybody wants something done, and why wouldn’t they given how obsessed we are with celebrity culture and looking like our favorite celebrities? We all want to look our best, but how popular is plastic surgery really?
The number of procedures has steadily been decreasing each year – down from 117,010,031 in 2007. In 2009, a total of 9,993,711 total procedures were done on American men and women. Of these, over 8.5 million were non-surgical – think Botox and microderm abrasians. These have seen a HUGE jump over the last 3 years. With face lifts and fat grafting (fat is harvested from the abdomen or neck and used on facial wrinkles, brows, etc.) ranging anywhere from $2700-$10,500 locally, it’s no surprise why non-surgical procedures have grown in popularity. There is less recovery time – with a face lift, it is recommended to take 14 days off work and even after those two weeks, swelling and bruising can still be apparent. Plastic surgery also doesn’t last forever and upkeep is recommended within a few years. With Botox or other non-surgical procedures, one can return to their daily lives right away.
