NEW YORK, Dec. 19 /PRNewswire/ --

The Top ten predictions for Plastic Surgery in 2006

The American Society for Aesthetic
Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the leading national organization of board-certified
plastic surgeons who specialize in cosmetic surgery, offers its predictions
for cosmetic surgery in 2006. Predictions are based on interviews with
leading plastic surgeons around the country.

* Silicone gel breast implants will be approved by the FDA. Once
approved, these devices, due largely to their more natural feel and
appearance, will dominate the U.S. market. (Gel implants have dominated
global markets for the past fifteen years.)

* Cosmetic surgery among racial and ethnic minorities in the United States
will continue to increase. (Current ASAPS statistics report that
minority populations' account for 20 percent of all cosmetic procedures

* News stories about "discount injectables" bought offshore will alert
patients to avoid "to good to be true" discounts and make sure that
their safety is protected by choosing a physician with appropriate
training, credentials and judgment.

* As States continue to watch New Jersey's negative experience with the
cosmetic surgery tax, they will abandon proposals to tax aesthetic
surgery procedures as potential sources for revenue.

* As the popularity of non-surgical and minimally invasive procedures
continues to grow; surgeons and manufacturers will develop new
techniques and products that advance the science, produce even better
results and lessen recovery time.

* Men will represent a growing segment of the aesthetic surgery market.
(According to a February 2005 consumer survey commissioned by ASAPS, 59
percent of men approve of cosmetic surgery, and 21 percent would
consider having cosmetic surgery. Seventy-nine percent (79%) of
American men surveyed said they would not be embarrassed if people in
addition to their family and close friends knew they had undergone
cosmetic surgery.)

* Large-scale clinical studies will be implemented to validate the safety
and effectiveness of minimally-invasive treatments such as barbed
sutures (the so-called lunch-hour facelift) and fat melting without

* Cosmetic surgery "vacations" will take a more serious turn as educated
consumers understand the safety and risk issues associated with surgical
procedures. Surgery performed by board-certified aesthetic plastic
surgeons, in accredited facilities where follow-up care is available
will continue to be the best value.

* Following the trend in increased consumer sophistication regarding
healthcare choices, board certification of practitioners, and
accreditation of surgical facilities will play an even more important
role in choosing a cosmetic surgeon.

* The growth and popularity of cosmetic fillers will dramatically increase
as products continue to evolve and new players enter the market.
