Does your face need a little pick-me-up?
Well, now might be just the right time. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Abergel says he’s seen evidence of growth at his practice. He attributes this growth to an improving economy and the increased use of social media.
According to information supplied by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), Americans spent more than $12 billion in 2013 on surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures, the most since the Great Recession began in 2008.
And those numbers reflect what your Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon has seen at his practice. He reports that the increase is across the board, with more people coming in for procedures ranging from minimally invasive treatments such as dermal fillers to facelifts and necklifts.
It appears that the combination of a better economic climate and more people using social media in both their personal and professional lives is driving the cosmetic enhancement market.
His patients connect with friends and colleagues on sites such as Facebook and LinkedIn and want to put their best face forward. He says that that’s one of the reasons minimally invasive, non-surgical procedures are seeing significant growth.
Surgical procedures for the face, such as eyelid surgery and rhinoplasty grew in 2013, but a study published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery revealed that minimally invasive procedures are experiencing the fastest growth rate. The research also suggested that those treatments are prepared to dominate aesthetic practices in the future.
According to Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Abergel, injectables such as BOTOX Cosmetic and anti-aging fillers are extremely popular and he’s seeing both women and men come in for these kinds of treatments because they require little or no downtime and are relatively discreet.
