ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. - Reality TV shows are creating a greater public awareness of cosmetic surgery and may attribute to the growth in procedures, however, these shows have not caused a rampant increase. The number of cosmetic plastic surgery procedures increased 5 percent in 2004, with more than 9.2 million procedures performed – a growth rate steady with that of the U.S. economy, according to statistics released today by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). New five-year trending data shows cosmetic procedures are up 24 percent from 2000, reports the ASPS.
While millions of Americans continue to pursue BOTOX treatments to remove frown lines and reduce wrinkles around the eyes, injectable fillers and hybrid filler treatments are also helping ward off the signs of aging.
