/PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Cosmetic surgery continues to grow in popularity. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), there were 17.7-million cosmetic procedures performed in the United States
in 2018. This number was an increase of 2% over the previous year. According to the ASPS, the top two cosmetic surgical procedures were breast augmentation and nose reshaping (rhinoplasty) while the top three minimally invasive cosmetic procedures were Botox, soft tissue fillers and chemical peels. Since so many Americans are having cosmetic surgery, this also means there are many Americans searching for methods to pay for these procedures. Cosmetic Town, a Los Angeles
based online plastic surgery and information community, is spotlighting the cost of cosmetic surgery with a week of news articles devoted to the topic.
According to the senior editor of Cosmetic Town, "Cosmetic surgery is normally not considered to be medically necessary so the cost of the procedure is usually not covered by insurance companies. This means that patients have to pay for their cosmetic procedure out of pocket whether it is a surgical procedure or a minimally invasive treatment. Because patients have to pay for cosmetic surgery on their own, they are often eager to learn more about what goes into the cost of cosmetic surgery."
The senior editor went on to say "One of the main questions we get from patients is whether or not they can finance their cosmetic surgery procedure. Financial options for cosmetic surgery include (but are not limited to) personal loans, charging the procedure on a credit card and even dipping into a retirement plan to pay for the surgery. Because there are multiple options available for financing a cosmetic surgery procedure, our news team takes an in-depth look at the pros and cons of each financing option."
The senior editor noted that the Cosmetic Town news team also took a look at the cost of cosmetic surgery in other parts of the world. "Our news spotlight on the cost of cosmetic surgery examines the growing popularity of rhinoplasty in China
, as well as teenage plastic surgery in England
, and the costs associated with these treatments. Cosmetic surgery is popular all over the world and our news team examines what goes into the cost of cosmetic surgery in countries beyond the United States
