Beverly Hills, CA — According to recent statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the total demand for cosmetic procedures has increased by five percent in the past year, with over 13.8 million performed in 2011. Dr. Jay Orringer, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, says he has noticed a similar surge in the popularity of aesthetic treatments in his practice, particularly surgical procedures at this time of year. With more time for recovery, Dr. Orringer says patients often find this time before school begins to be a good period for body contouring, tummy tucks and breast procedures such as breast augmentation, breasts lifts, and breast reductions.
Focusing on a wide range of cosmetic surgical and minimally invasive treatments at his Beverly Hills plastic surgery practice, Dr. Orringer says that more people seem to be comfortable with the concept of cosmetic surgery. They strive to take to the next level the efforts they have already begun to improve their appearance through good diet and exercise. Breast reduction and tummy tuck procedures often provide the incentive to achieve the patient’s form and fitness goals. According to Dr. Orringer, the end of the summer is a popular time for breast augmentations, breast lifts, and tummy tuck procedures. He indicates that this is typically a time of transition from summer vacation and relaxation to an increase in responsibilities related to school or work. Therefore, this period can be the perfect time for many patients to recover from a surgical procedure:
“The end of the summer before school starts is an ideal time to do tummy tucks as well as breast augmentations, either while kids are at camp or before the hectic school year starts,” says Dr. Orringer. “Mothers are often anxious to undergo a procedure now because they have enjoyed the bulk of the summer, while anticipating looking great for the fall and rest of the year.”
Similarly, Dr. Orringer says another popular procedure, prior to returning to school, is breast reduction. He says that students with uncomfortably large breasts may choose to undergo treatment before they go off to school.
Regardless of which procedure patients are looking for, or when they decide is the right time for surgery, Dr. Orringer recommends consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon before undergoing aesthetic surgery. He says taking the time to choose the right practice can better ensure that patients receive the safest, most effective care possible for their procedure. By partnering with an experienced and dedicated surgeon, Dr. Orringer says patients can enjoy the benefits of an enhanced appearance for the start of the school year.
