Plastic Surgery in a Poor Economy

The tough American economy has ironically increased many people’s interest in plastic surgery, as a younger appearance tends to help individuals be more competitive in the job market. Arlington plastic surgeons have also reported an increase in less-invasive procedures that cost less and have a faster turn-around time.

The most popular procedures requested by patients aged 35 to 55 include:

Younger clients more often desire breast augmentation and facial rejuvenation.

Regardless of the economy, there seems to be a cyclical nature to plastic surgery. Statistics reveal that the demand for breast augmentation surgery generally increases in the spring and early summer and the demand for laser resurfacing is higher in winter, when people are staying out of the sun.
