Cosmetic Surgery Procedures Down

The rush to cosmetics by physicians ranging from ER doctors to Pediatricians has been amazing. But, is there a cosmetics bubble?

Some plastic surgeons … are seeing a drop-off in patient consultations, which is ‘usually a little bit of a precursor to lighter surgical calendars maybe 45 to 60 days out.’ … [B]reast-implant maker Mentor Corp. in Santa Barbara, Calif., says the surgeons … have noticed a drop in patient interest.

As long as the economy continues to slow, discretionary spending for cosmetic procedures will likely tighten. A potential benefit? You might be able to get in to see your physician sooner for that rash.

  1. I, for one, find the decline in cosmetic procedures refreshing news. Sorry, doc, nothing personal… I just think this area of “medicine” has evolved to unhealthy epidemic proportions and include myself as one of its unfortunate victims.

    Best wishes!
