Patients Choose Facelifts Over Finances

A recent article in USA Today reveals that more Americans are accepting the idea of plastic surgery and even making financial sacrifices in order to het procedures done. At present, the economy slump has discouraged many individuals from spending their money on frivolous or unnecessary purchases. Pampering and comfort seem to be a thing of the past for many Americans who are pinching pennies in order to continue living in their economic bracket.

Yet while people are struggling with the rising gas prices and health care costs, they are willing to spend the big bucks when it comes to plastic surgery. In f act, the amount of plastic surgeries rose 5% from 2011 to 2012 despite the lack of excess money in the nation. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that last year alone there were 14.6 million procedures. This includes both minimally invasive procedures and surgical ones.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons notes that this is the third consecutive year that the amount of plastic surgery procedures has gone up. This is because many people are spending more of their money on the relatively cheaper minimally invasive procedures such as Botox. Minimally invasive treatments like this one are taking over and may even be reducing the amount of liposuctions. Instead, people are choosing cheaper alternatives for plastic surgery that don’t require a lot of recovery time so that they can get back to work in short order.

Cosmetic surgeries are typically not covered by health plans because they are considered elective, but this doesn’t chance the fact that more than ever Americans are choosing to get work done. Last year alone, the amount of minimally invasive procedures performed in the United States rose by 6%. If you are considering plastic surgery, then talk Dr. Yuly Gorodisky for more information. With a variety of minimally invasive and surgical procedures, this surgeon understands how to perform cosmetic procedures and give patients the results that they want.
