WELLINGTON, Fla., Sept. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- According to E Physicians Network, Inc., the latest statistics estimate that plastic surgery was a $13.5 Billion industry in the US in 2015, up from $12 Billion in 2014 and $11 Billion in 2013. There are approximately 60,000 plastic surgeons in the US and roughly 6,000 of those are "Board Certified".
Business is booming for plastic surgeons and the trend supports another record year in 2016. Some of the reasons attributed to the rise in Americans seeking plastic surgery are advances in technology which have made most procedures less invasive, more precise as a result recovery times are much shorter and the patient can return to their normal lives usually in a few days. Most practices also offer financing making it accessible to even more Americans seeking plastic surgery.
The most popular plastic surgery procedures in order are Liposuction, Breast Augmentation, Tummy Tuck, Eyelid Surgery and Breast Lift.
Another component adding to the boom is online accessibility for the average American that is considering plastic surgery. Do a search in any big city to small town for a plastic surgeon and you will find there is no shortage of directories, advertisements, specials and the most beautiful websites featuring models and before & after photos of happy patients. How does the average American chose a surgeon from all of this?
Sharon Klein a practice manager for a multiple office plastic surgery practice in Southeast Florida, Sharon attributes a significant amount of the practices growth to "outsourcing" with a concierge patient coordinator company; esurgeonsnetwork.com. She went on to explain that esurgeonsnetwork.com has highly trained patient coordinators on staff in the evenings and on weekends to speak with patients when her offices are closed and when the prospective patients work day is over so they have the time to chat, ask questions and make a decision. The result has been time saved in scheduling, an increase in the number of consultations they do with a higher percentage that convert into patients and the cost per consultation is significantly less than the ones the office generates through traditional methods.
It seems more and more Americans are seeking to improve the way they look and feel about themselves through plastic surgery and it has become a regular addition to diet and exercise. While making a choice of surgeons it is suggested to do your homework on the Dr. and practice you are considering or you may have a "concierge" do it for you.
