 Breast Augmentation Leads Growing Number of Cosmetic Surgeries in US

Improving economy in the United States has seen a surge in cosmetic surgeries according to the latest figures released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

The latest figures show a 5 percent hike in the number of plastic surgeries last year with over 13 million surgical cosmetic surgeries conducted across the country. Breast augmentation was one of the most popular surgeries with nearly 300,000 cases performed in 2010.

The hike in the expensive cosmetic surgeries have been picked up by traders and market analysts who argue that the rise in non-essential but expensive procedures can be seen as a sign of improving economy.

"The pre-crisis trend of paying for a $6,000 to $7,000 breast augmentation operation on your credit card definitely changed in 2008 and 2009. Now many people have paid down their debts and have enough confidence in the economy to pay for operations again", ASPS president Dr. Phil Haeck said.
