Cosmetic surgeries get a little nip and tuck

New York Times, April 29, 2010

Cosmetic surgery wasn't as popular in 2009 as it used to be, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, which annually surveys its members as well as dermatologists and ear-nose-and-throat doctors. The declines reported in this survey echoed the findings of another recent survey by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, which found an even steeper decline in cosmetic-surgery procedures performed last year. Yet some doctors express confidence that there is pent-up demand, the New York Times reports.
