Leading Plastic Surgery Experts Available to Discuss Proposed ,Cosmetic Surgery Tax

Leading plastic surgery experts from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), are available to discuss the recently proposed cosmetic surgery tax.

Arlington Heights, IL (Vocus) November 24, 2009 -- Leading plastic surgery experts from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), are available to discuss the recently proposed cosmetic surgery tax.

WHAT: Some of the nation’s leading plastic surgery experts are available for interviews throughout the holiday weekend regarding the proposed 5% cosmetic surgery tax including:

 
  • How this tax would affect middle-America.
  • The impact this tax would have on patient privacy.
  • The proven ineffectiveness that this policy will have in raising revenue—failure in New Jersey.
  • The serious long-term implications of having government, not doctors determine what is medically necessary and thus exempt from such a tax.
  • Discrimination against women seeking cosmetic procedures.
  • How the plastic surgery community is fighting back on a grassroots level.

WHY: In response to Saturday’s vote to continue the debate over the Senate’s proposed healthcare bill, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) – the world’s largest plastic surgery society and a member of a growing list of medical organizations opposed to this bill – renews its stance that a tax on cosmetic surgery procedures is discriminatory, arbitrary and ineffective. Furthermore, ASPS and its members would like to address other unintended consequences of such a tax, including the dangerous possibility of compromised patient privacy – which has not yet been addressed.
