According to a new report from TIME, cosmetic procedures soar at this time of year, and the “gifting” of plastic surgery is reportedly a rising holiday season trend.
According to plastic surgeons cited in an ABC News report, the gifting of cosmetic surgery is up 20% to 35%, depending on the procedure and practice. Likewise, an Elle.com post called on plastic surgeons reporting that sales of gift cards—often for $150 to $200, which cover low-cost procedures like medical-grade peels—have undergone a “dramatic increase.”
Have you noticed a lot of smooth foreheads on your male coworkers and friends lately? That could be because of a new trend.
Cosmetic procedures for men are up 22 percent over the last several years. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more than 6.1 million people got Botox done in 2012. Nearly 400,000 of those were men.

FALL BOTOX EVENT
Thursday November 21st, 2013 9am~6pm
Call Today to Reserve your Appointment!
BOTOX® Cosmetic receives FDA approval for the temporary improvement of moderate to severe lateral canthal lines (commonly known as crow’s feet lines) in adults.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first and only product of its kind approved for this indication. BOTOX® Cosmetic, approved in the United States in 2002 for the temporary improvement of moderate to severe glabellar lines (frown lines between the brows) for patients aged 18 to 65 years, remains the number-one minimally invasive aesthetic medical treatment globally.
The safety and efficacy of BOTOX® Cosmetic as a treatment for crow’s feet lines was demonstrated in two randomized, multi-center, placebo-controlled clinical trials. The studies enrolled more than 1,350 subjects with 833 subjects receiving treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic. The trial demonstrated that BOTOX® Cosmetic was an effective treatment compared to the control group, which did not receive BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment.
Samra Plastic Surgery is pleased to announce the Botox Summer Event.

If the rise in Botox procedures is any indication, the fountain of youth might be found in a syringe, even for 20-somethings whose signs of aging are often invisible to the naked eye.
The number of Botox procedures among 20-somethings rose 8 percent in 2012 to 92,955 from the prior year, according to the 2012 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons
Recent statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) indicate that 14.6 million cosmetic plastic surgery procedures, including both minimally-invasive and surgical, were performed in the United States in 2012, up 5 percent since 2011. In addition, 5.6 million reconstructive plastic surgery procedures were performed last year, up 1 percent.
Cosmetic minimally-invasive procedures increased 6 percent, with more than 13 million procedures in 2012. “For the third consecutive year, the overall growth in cosmetic surgery continues to be driven by a significant rise in minimally-invasive procedures, while surgical procedures remain relatively stable,” said ASPS President Gregory Evans, MD.
2012 marked the highest number of botulinum toxin type A (Botox®, Dysport®) injections performed to date. Other facial rejuvenation procedures like soft tissue fillers, laser skin resurfacing and microdermabrasion also saw sizable increases.
The top five minimally-invasive procedures were:
- Botulinum toxin type A (6.1 million procedures, up 8 percent)
- Soft tissue fillers (2 million procedures, up 5 percent)
- Chemical peel (1.1 million procedures, up 2 percent)
- Laser hair removal (1.1 million procedures, up 4 percent)
- Microdermabrasion (974,000 procedures, up 8 percent)
When weighing your plastic surgery options, you must decide whether you want to pursue surgical procedures, like a facelift, liposuction or tummy tuck, or non-surgical alternatives, like Botox or dermal filler injections.
Here are four questions to ask yourself when making this choice with your board-certified plastic surgeon:
1. How long do I have to recover?
2. How long do I want results to last?
3. How much do I want to spend?
4. Do I want a dramatic change?
