According to New York cosmetic surgeon Dr. Douglas Hargrave, the improving economy as well as the steady increase in social media use have contributed to the rise in popularity of cosmetic surgery procedures. Dr. Hargrave’s statements are backed by statistics of the plastic surgery industry.
According to data gathered by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Americans spent a total of $12 billion on cosmetic procedures. This is the highest amount spent on this industry since the 2008 recession.
Dr. Hargrave attested to the importance that physical appearance-enhancing procedures, such as Botox and anti-aging fillers, have in society today. He also added that both men and women “come in for these kinds of treatments because they require little to no downtime and are relatively discreet”.
