St. Petersburg Plastic Surgeon
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 5,800,000 reconstructive procedures took place in the United States. That includes plastic surgery procedures such as tumor removal, laceration repair, scar repair, and hand surgery. That same year, over 15,900,000 cosmetic procedures, both invasive and minimally invasive, took place, including soft tissue care, facial treatments, injectables, liposuction, and all sorts of lifts, reductions, and augmentations.
That means that over 21 million procedures were performed by a plastic surgeon or a plastic surgery team last year. That amount equates to more than 57,500 cosmetic or reconstructive procedures performed per day. This tells us a few things. First, the demand for plastic surgeons is higher than ever. And second, more people see plastic surgery as a therapeutic method for healing.
Why Is The Demand Higher?
This question can be answered in two ways. First, society, in general, has removed the stigma that clouded cosmetic surgery for years. Plastic surgery is openly discussed in a more positive tone in public thanks to televisions shows, celebrities, magazines, and advanced medical techniques ensuring efficiency and safety.
Second, cosmetic and reconstructive surgery is often used to treat wounds, injuries, and scarring. Plastic surgeons are required for treating burns, removing tumors, repairing lacerations, performing microsurgery, and doctoring scars. Plastic surgery is also seen as an essential method for treating certain birth defects such as cleft lips and deviated septums.
More significantly, though, plastic surgery is an accepted method of treating mental health concerns. Patients often come in looking to alter or reconstruct a particular part of their body that is causing low-self esteem, embarrassment, or is affecting their quality of life. These concerns are personal and unique to each patient, and proper cosmetic surgery treatment can restore confidence and improve self-esteem.
