Three Factors Contributing to the Growth of Cosmetic Surgery

Cosmetic surgery continues to grow in popularity each year. In fact, a recent study conducted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons stated that cosmetic procedures in the U.S. have doubled in the past 12 years. In addition to these findings, the study identified certain trends that vary nationally and state-by-state. While there has been an increase nationally in all types of cosmetic surgery, Tallahassee physicians, as well as surgeons in other states, report a marked increase particularly in minimally invasive procedures. This increase is most likely due to three influences:

1. Media

The entertainment industry plays a major role in promoting the popularity of cosmetic procedures. Both men and women seek to emulate the toned figures and flawless skin of their favorite celebrities, prompting them to undergo minimally invasive treatments such as facelifts, injectables, or fillers.

2. Finances

Financial considerations are a major influence in a patient’s decision to undergo elective surgery. Fluctuations in entrepreneurship and unemployment in certain areas play a huge role in the overall statistics of both major and minor surgeries in several states. This may also point to another reason cheaper, minimally invasive procedures continue to rise in popularity, regardless of any economic downturn.

3. Age

More mature patients are a rising demographic in cosmetic treatments. These patients want to look as fresh and youthful as they feel inside, and are typically unhindered by financial restraints. In fact, when it comes to cosmetic surgery, Tallahassee surgeons report that mature patients are some of their leading candidates.
