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

eenagers within the past year.

Appearance Matters to Men Too

With more men staying in the workforce longer, this year's survey revealed that men accounted for approximately 16 percent of all facial plastic surgery consultations and treatments (surgical and non-surgical), and 21 percent of all patients seen for multiple procedures at the same time or during the course of the same year. Multiple procedures may be attributed to regular cosmetic injections, Botox and laser rejuvenation, all of which require ongoing treatments and follow-up care.

News and Trends in Facial Plastic Surgery

In 2008, more than 40 percent of facial plastic surgeons treated patients who suffered complications from surgeries gone awry that had been performed abroad. Another alarming finding revealed 74 percent of facial plastic surgeons were aware of medical directors (physicians) of medispa businesses who were not onsite performing, or even overseeing, the medical treatments in the U.S. The most commonly reported complications associated with non-physician administration of injectable fillers and/or lasers included burns, asymmetrical results or misplaced fillers, and granulomas, clumping which occurs when particles form lumps that can be seen and felt beneath the skin.

During the economy's downturn, there are countless non-specialists marketing their services and treatments at a lower cost or rate, or providing misinformation. More than half of all surgeons surveyed found advertising associated with specific injectable fillers, lasers and/or other cosmetic treatments to be deceptive. Many non-medical personnel have entered the arena of cosmetic treatments, and the buyer needs to beware. If an advertisement for a cosmetic procedure appears to be too good to be true, it may be. The AAFPRS urges all patients to be careful before proceeding with any significantly discounted cosmetic procedures.
