Cosmetic surgery fell in 2009

Wall Street Journal, March 9, 2010
The number of cosmetic-surgery procedures in the U.S. sagged for the second year in a row in 2009, according to an annual survey released by a plastic surgeons' association. There were 10 million surgical and nonsurgical procedures last year, down 2% from 2008, according to a survey of 928 board-certified physicians by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Driving the decline was a 17% drop in surgical procedures, to 1.5 million surgeries.
