New Survey Reveals 'The Lipstick Effect' With Non-Invasive Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures
Date:3/16/2009

Annual Survey of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Finds Consumers Spending More on Less Invasive and Less Expensive Procedures

NEW YORK, March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the new annual survey by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), approximately 80 percent of board certified facial plastic surgeons reported an increase in non-invasive cosmetic procedures within the past year among consumers looking to delay the effects of aging and more costly surgeries. The most requested non-invasive procedures included Botox (96 percent); dermal fillers (93 percent), such as hyaluronic acid; and ablative skin resurfacing treatments (92 percent), such as dermabrasion and intense pulse laser (IPL) treatments.

In 2008, the plastic surgery business was not immune to the economic and credit crises, and physicians across the country reported declines in overall cosmetic procedures. However, even in tough times, the recent survey found that both men and women spent money on non-invasive procedures to look and feel refreshed, personally and/or professionally. According to this year's report, three out of four physicians said they treated patients who requested facial plastic surgery to stay competitive in the workplace. Other noteworthy trends included men requesting cosmetic surgery to be more attractive to their partners (43 percent), couples undergoing facial plastic surgery procedures together (41 percent), and women seeking facial plastic surgery to look and feel their best for their wedding day (39 percent).

"In challenging economic times, patients want value when it comes to investing in their health and the appearance of their face," said Donn Chatham, MD, President of the AAFPRS. "Value does not mean cheap, it means quality gained for the investment."
