Study: 62% of plastic surgeons are also patients
An interesting but not surprising study was highlighted by Baltimore Sun health blogger Kelly Brewington.
"In a survey of 276 members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 62 percent said they had gone under the knife for at least one procedure. Most receive minimally invasive procedures such as laser hair removal chemical peels and Botox -- no word of whether they throw Botox parties. A third had gone under a surgical procedure, with liposuction being the most common."
I wasn't polled by the ASPS for this study, but I would've bumped the numbers up a bit. In the last couple of months I've tried both Ulthera and Zeltiq. Can't wait to show off the final results at the end of December, as both treatments take about 3 months to fully take effect.
