Plastic Surgeons Stay Busy in Recession
Date:7/31/2009

filler commonly used around the nose and lower face, can cost $1,200, added Schechter, who is an assistant professor of surgery and chief of plastic surgery at Chicago Medical School and an ASPS spokesperson.

Other than cost-savings, a major reason women opt for more minor procedures is not wanting to take time out from a job or a job hunt.

"A lot of people don't want to be away from work," said ASPS president Dr. John Canady, professor of plastic surgery at the University of Iowa in Iowa City.

"Without a doubt, people are looking for quicker recovery time. That's why Botox and fillers are so popular: The downtime is minimal to none," agreed Thaller.

Axelrod, who took less than a week off work, said her face was swollen for about two weeks.

While three-quarters of practitioners from a recent ASPS poll reported an "increased or stable" demand for these types of minor procedures, many individual surgeons say they feel the pinch of the recession.

"Across the country, there's not a place that hasn't felt the economic impact," Canady said.

Some filler companies are giving discounts for their products, Thaller said.

And while some patients still will fork over $1,000 or more to boost their employment prospects, others are opting out of the plastic surgery market completely.

Some people just don't show up for appointments, Thaller said.

Others are simply cutting back.

"People who used to do two or three areas [with Botox] might do one area now, or they're not coming every three to four months. They're coming every six to 12 months," Thaller said. "They're looking for deals. They don't want to spend $200 or $400, when before they would spend $1,000 or $1,200 without batting an eyelash."
