"While the demand for plastic surgery nationally has dropped only 2 percent last year, our practice has actually seen an increase in both surgical and non surgical procedures”

Almost 10 million cosmetic surgery procedures were performed in the United States in 2009, according to statistics released this week by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. The Aesthetic Society says the overall number of cosmetic surgery procedures has increased 147 percent since the tracking of the statistics first began in 1997.

"While the demand for plastic surgery nationally has dropped only 2 percent last year, our practice has actually seen an increase in both surgical and non surgical procedures,” said Bergen County, New Jersey plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Zubowski. “BOTOX® injections, eyelash enhancement, microdermabrasion, and laser hair removal continue to be the most popular non-surgical procedures and Breast augmentation continues to be the most popular surgical procedure.”

Dr. Zubowski, a New Jersey plastic surgeon recently featured on Real Housewives of New Jersey, expects growth in demand for breast implants and other plastic surgery procedures to return as the recession eases and baby boomer's offspring begin to explore surgical options.
