1 in 5 Americans Will Receive Aesthetic Cosmetic Procedures in 2015

Posted by Cosmetic Surgery Review on June 26, 2008

Despite today’s slowing economy and tighter consumer budgets, the future looks bright for the cosmetic and plastic surgery industry.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) recently published their predictions for 2015, and estimate that over 55 million procedures – one for every five Americans – will be performed. Analysts claim that more people will be taking advantage of better technology and more competitive prices.

In 2007, the ASPS reported 11.7 million procedures, and the 2015 prediction is four times the total number of procedures performed in 2005.

Plastic Surgery Interactive also points out that “for ASPS members, 12% of the procedures they perform will be surgical and 88% will be non-surgical in 2015. For non-ASPS physicians, surgical procedures will make up only 3% of their total procedures, and 97% will be non-surgical in 2015.”

So what does this mean for you?

More procedures performed across the country mean you might be able to obtain a more competitive rate, consult with several cosmetic surgery doctors with high levels of expertise, and choose from innovative procedures that are safer and more accurate.

If you’ve been thinking about cosmetic or plastic surgery but haven’t found a treatment that fits within your means, lower costs for cosmetic surgery and finding the treatment you need could be right around the corner.
