In the city of Sacramento, it appears that there has been an increased interest in breast augmentation procedures. One plastic surgery office is reporting that it has seen more patients inquiring about breast augmentation and the doctors say that the increase may stem from an improving economy.
One doctor from the office said that the rise in breast augmentation procedures at his office directly correlates with predictions made by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Nationwide, it has been noted that more breast augmentations were performed in the year 2010 than in 2009. And, in 2010, breast augmentation was one of the top five plastic procedures performed stated a survey by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
Despite some speculation, studies show that the improvement of the economy has led to an increase in plastic surgery. In 2009, researchers from Cleveland Clinic said there was a correlation between plastic surgery numbers and the state of the economy trends in the S&P 500, Dow Jones and NASDAQ indexing.
The doctor from the Sacramento practice confirmed that many of his patients wanted breast augmentation for some time but were waiting for the economy to become more secure.
