Many patients contemplating cosmetic procedures wonder how common these procedures really are. We often hear our patients say, "We all know someone that's done something, right?" "Am I that type of person?" "Would the doctor that's performing the procedure actually get it done themselves?"
A new survey of 276 members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons published in the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal noted that 62% of doctors said that they had had at least one procedure, mostly laser hair removal, chemical peels and Botox Cosmetic treatments. A third had more invasive surgical procedures, with liposuction being the most common.
