The latest data on the American market of cosmetic and anti-aging surgeries show their statistical increase in the last year compared to the previous year. Americans spent $ 10.1 billion on cosmetic surgery in 2010, ignoring the economic downturn.
But the most important point of the above research is the recording of the ages that spend the most on cosmetic surgeries and cosmetic medicine products. According to the data, 43% concern people between the ages of 31 and 45, while those between the ages of 51 and 64 spent only 28% of the total amount recorded.
According to the president of the American Society of Cosmetic Plastic Surgeons, Leo McCafferty, the evolution of operations and recovery time, as well as the constant updating from television, magazines and the Internet make these interventions more accessible at a younger age. As Leo McCafferty puts it, “Today we have many alternative treatments for the face and body compared to the last decade. Injectable therapies, such as Botox and Juvéderm, do not require recovery time. On the other hand, even cosmetic surgeries using modern laser and radiofrequency devices require smaller incisions, less recovery time and provide greater safety.
