Cosmetic procedures continue to increase in popularity across the nation and in the Southwest. A staggering 15.1 million cosmetic procedures were performed last year in the U.S. with the greatest increase in the age group over 40 years old (ASPS Publications, 2013). Females are still the largest consumers of plastic surgery, but men are beginning to understand not just the desire but the need to look younger in order to compete in the workforce. The largest increases in surgical procedures were for eyelid lifts, facelifts, and necklifts.  The American Society of Plastic Surgeons notes that there has also been an increase in Botox, facial fillers, and chemical peels over the last year. Dr. Mark Mason of Southlake Plastic Surgery has noticed these trends in his own practice. For any type of invasive or minimally invasive procedure, Dr. Mason recommends consulting with someone who is certified in their field such as a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and possesses a depth of knowledge and experience. “Anyone can physically perform the procedure whether it is surgery or administering Botox or filler, but who would you trust to use a scalpel or needle on your face?  Medical professionals are not only trained to perform these surgeries and treatments, but they are mandated to keep up with the newest scientific information.”  Whether you choose surgery or a non-surgical procedure, you will know that you are not in the minority!
