Reports from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons indicate that more people are electing to undergo plastic surgery.

Traditional New Year's resolutions usually include a better diet, a gym membership, and a commitment to better overall fitness and nutrition. But for those who want a quicker and easier way to achieve results, cosmetic surgery is becoming increasingly more popular. Newer technology and surgical methods have made cosmetic surgery safer and more effective.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, nearly 150,000 people elected to undergo a "tummy tuck" in 2006 -- a 9% increase from 2005. Minimally and moderately invasive cosmetic procedures (those requiring little or no surgery) also are on the rise. Botox and collagen injections removals all experienced increased popularity from 2005 to 2006. The rising numbers can be attributed to increased availability and affordability, according to Mark Deutsch, M.D., of Perimeter Plastic Surgery.

"More and more, people want to look younger for longer. My staff and I can help you improve or preserve your appearance, regardless of your age." said Dr. Deutsch.

Face lifts, forehead lifts, neck lifts, and dermabrasion are recommended procedures for clients in their mid-50s and older. Typical surgeries for those in their 40s include brow lifts, eyelid surgery, breast lifts and tummy tucks. Moderately and minimally invasive procedures such as injectable fillers like Botox and Restylane are more effective when used on patients in their 30s and younger because they help to preserve youthfulness before patients begin to age.

Dr. Deutsch is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, has over 10 years experience in the field, and is an expert when it comes to the aging process. He and his staff specialize in providing their clientèle with age appropriate cosmetic procedures. More importantly, Perimeter Plastic Surgery is committed to providing top quality professional service. Each patient undergoes a thorough consultation prior to any surgical procedure.
