ASAPS: Cosmetic surgery has bounced back since 2008 recession

Undergoing plastic surgery is a transformative experience emotionally as well as mentally for many people in Miami. For these men and women, the boost in confidence alone is enough to justify the cost of a tummy tuck or breast augmentation surgery, but there is no denying that these treatments can be pricey. The expense, unfortunately, is one of the primary reasons that people risk surgical procedures at the hands of under-qualified professionals, and the results can be disastrous.

Recently, though, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) reported that cosmetic procedures performed by board-certified plastic surgeons have bounced back dramatically since the recession of 2008. Americans across the country found themselves pinching pennies after the economic downturn, so any plans to enhance their appearance were ultimately put to the side. Now, these figures indicate greater financial stability, as more people feel comfortable making an investment in themselves.

"More than 11 million cosmetic surgical and nonsurgical procedures were performed by board-certified plastic surgeons, dermatologists and otolaryngologists in the United States, totaling more than 12 billion dollars for the first time since the Great Recession began in 2008," an ASAPS press release states.

In order to reap the benefits of these procedures and minimize potential risks, it's important to find a board-certified plastic surgeon to perform your desired treatment. Board-certified plastic surgeons have undergone rigorous training to ensure they understand both the technical and aesthetic elements of cosmetic surgery, and are able to respond to any issues that arise. Dr. Christopher Craft is a highly skilled cosmetic surgeon in Miami who will work with you to decide on the best approach for your desired results.
