MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Frost & Sullivan has recently completed a global survey of hospitals and surgery centers providing plastic surgery. The survey, Growth Opportunities in the Global Plastic Surgery Market, reveals that plastic and cosmetic surgery continues to post some of the strongest procedural growth year-over-year of any surgical specialty.  This detailed, quantitative, global assessment finds significant growth in select procedures and shows how opportunities vary widely by country.


"Boosted by rising income levels in developing countries, medical tourism, and growing cultural acceptance, plastic surgery is a critical segment for any company targeting the surgical market," states Frost & Sullivan's Vice President of Customer Research Dan Colquhoun.

The results of this research will help business planners and strategic decision makers within the medical device and pharmaceutical industries.  The survey highlights which countries represent the greatest opportunity for companies in the plastic surgery market, which plastic surgery procedures represent the greatest opportunity, the number and identities of hospitals and clinics performing these procedures, and the degree of use of anesthesia and sedation in these procedures.

For this survey, 753 individuals in 15 countries participated in the project.  Respondents were individuals who had plastic or reconstructive surgical procedures performed at their facilities and had one of the following roles in their organization: chief/head of plastic or reconstructive surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgeon, administrator, or nurse.  The research was conducted in both public and private clinics and hospitals.
