There was a recent poll by Harris Interactive on behalf of Realself.com looking at trends in cosmetic and plastic surgery. The study surveyed over 2100 patients aged 18 and over. The study looked at interest and satisfaction with cosmetic surgery.
Tummy tuck (29%) and liposuction (23%) topped the list of procedures that patients would undergo if finances weren’t an issue.
The realself “worth it” rating index showed the highest satisfaction with a mommy makeover (97%) tummy tuck (85%), vision correction (83%) and breast augmentation (77%).
I have seen a tremendous volume of mommy makeover, tummy tuck and breast augmentation patients in the past few months. Partly, this is seasonal. I think there is more to it. Happy patients who consider procedures “worth it” talk.
The study looked at procedural costs as well. The average cost for a tummy tuck was $8,722 and breast augmentation was $6,591. I am happy to say our costs are significantly less.
