Dr. Grossman - founder of Grossman Plastic Surgery – says Plastic Surgery is a better Bellwether than Luxury Retail Brands

The increase in luxury procedures represents all class levels, which shows more confidence in spending.

It was recently stated in the Wall Street Journal article titled, What Recession? Americans Regain a Craving for Luxury “French silk-scarf maker Hermes International SCA said Tuesday (February 12th) that fourth-quarter sales rose 21% in the Americas.” Denver Plastic surgeon Dr. Grossman believes that the cosmetic surgery industry has seen even larger growth as it attracts a larger audience than these sorts of luxury brands.

He says his Denver plastic surgery office, Grossman Plastic Surgery is seeing very strong signs of recovering from when it was totally booming pre-2007. According to Dr. Grossman, the most significant bounce back occurred in the last year.

“Similarly to how these brands, Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Cartier, etc. are showing up-takes in luxury spending, as is the Cosmetic Surgery Industry,” said Denver plastic surgeon, Dr. Grossman. “People are starting to loosen up again in spending. Post 2007, we certainly saw a downturn. People were getting smaller and fewer procedures, we were seeing less surgical and slightly increases on the non-invasive treatments.”

Dr. Grossman says business fluctuated with the daily changes in the stock market. But, the past 12 months they have started to see a consistent increase in procedures and more of the larger ticket procedures. He believes that cosmetic surgery, both surgical and non-surgical is more sensitive to economic upturns and downturns than the brands mentioned by the Wall Street Journal as it represents a larger sloth of population from middle-class to upper-elite. According to Dr. Grossman, the cosmetic surgery industry saw a downturn anywhere from 10-40% across the nation at the height of the recession.

Dr. Grossman continued saying, “The increase in luxury procedures represents all class levels, which shows more confidence in spending.”

Dr. Grossman has served the Denver community for more than three decades. He provides a variety of services, including: breast augmentation, liposuction, rhinoplasty, and mommy makeovers. He is double-board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery. He is a member of a variety of prestigious medical organizations, such as:
