US Cosmetic Surgery Procedures Market to Reach $15.1 Billion by 2012, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

Americans want to look young. It drives demand for cosmetic surgery, and the aesthetic procedures market is projected to reach $15.13 billion by 2012.

Injectables represent the most vibrant and promising growth area, since downtime and recovery period is minimal to nil and costs are easy-on-the-pocket. Surgical treatments, which provide long-term benefits, are temporality out-of-favor, especially since the US economic slowdown has tightened consumer spending on their expensive in nature, out-of-pocket surgical treatments.

Recent years have been glorious in the history of cosmetic surgery products and procedures, as new product approvals and technology improvements have strived to provide the best to the prospective patient. Although, slightly disturbed as a result on ongoing economic meltdown, long-term forecast promise nothing but a bright future. As the US population ages, and people have access to discretionary income, they are indeed expected to splurge on having a treatment, surgical or non-surgical. While it is always easier to get a shot of botox to smoothen wrinkles, or a dermal filler to plump up under eye hollows, demand for popular surgical treatments would continue with those for whom injections are not enough to get the desired look.

Leading growth would be non-surgical treatments: dermal fillers, injectables, laser treatments.
