Cosmetic surgery is not just for the rich and famous

Specialist eyelid surgeon Dr Ioannis P. Glavas has commented on the recent plastic surgery predictions for 2011, saying that cosmetic surgery is no longer reserved for the rich and famous. Last month, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) released its annual predictions for surgery trends in 2011, which predicted that non surgical, injectable treatments would continue to rise steadily. In a statement released to Market Wire, Dr Glavas said: “Botox is one of the better known injectables, of course, but there are many safe, effective choices for people who want to reduce or eliminate puffy, wrinkled skin around the eyes, which often makes us look older. “Cosmetic surgery is not just reserved for the rich and famous”. Dr Glavas also talked in positive terms about the changing statistics of Botox patients, and the affordability of cosmetic surgery and non surgical procedures. He confirmed that the average Botox patient is ‘a single mother between the ages of 35 and 55 years old.’
