Higher Demand for Plastic Surgery
AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) –
Plastic surgery is more popular now than ever before.
A new study from The American Society of Plastic Surgeons shows the amount of cosmetic surgeries performed over the years is growing rapidly.
“It’s just becoming more accepting,” said Rachel Harper of Augusta Plastic Surgery.
From fuller lips, to body lifts, you name it, plastic surgery seems to be the new plan for bodily enhancements.
“They’re happier with themselves as a person just making those changes,” said Harper. “They’re still themselves, just improving themselves.”
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons released its annual plastic surgery procedural statistics, reporting that 15.6 million cosmetic procedures were performed in the United States in 2014. That is 3% higher than procedures performed in 2013.
“They’re not scared, it’s not taboo,” said Harper. “Before, no one would talk about it. So, it’s in the media more, you hear about it with celebrities.”
