Dr. Stephen T. Green­berg talks about the chang­ing face of plas­tic surgery.

Does the pop­u­lar­ity of cosmetic pro­ce­dures change de­pend­ing on the sea­son? Li­po­suc­tion and breast aug­men­ta­tion are the most com­mon pro­ce­dures through­out the year; how­ever, with the colder months ap­proach­ing, fa­cial cosmetic is huge—face lifts, eye lifts, lips, chin, fore­head, and rhino­plasty. Peo­ple in the sum­mer are out and about, go­ing to events, and are at a high risk of be­ing seen. In the win­ter, peo­ple are inside and more re­cep­tive to hav­ing a longer re­cov­ery time. I’ve found that a lot of younger women are start­ing to have cosmetic surgery. Why is that? Be­cause of the min­i­mally in­va­sive pro­ce­dures, peo­ple are start­ing ear­lier. I think cosmetic surgery is more ac­cepted. Many young women see their par­ents do­ing it. They grow up wit­ness­ing it. Have you no­ticed an in­crease in male clients? In the past, it was un­usual for men to get a pro­ce­dure, but now they com­prise 30 per­cent of my prac­tice. The most com­mon non-sur­gi­cal pro­ce­dure for men is Bo­tox and other in­jec­tion into the face. How should we prep for 2018? For fall and win­ter, it’s im­per­a­tive that pa­tients take care of their skin to get rid of the sun dam­age and sun ex­po­sure prob­lem. We of­fer a com­puter anal­y­sis of pa­tients’ skin, and it an­a­lyzes what we need to im­prove. We use the com­puter to for­mu­late an in­di­vid­ual’s pro­gram for their skin type.

Dr. Green­berg says that the de­mo­graphic for plas­tic surgery, in­clud­ing non­in­va­sive pro­ce­dures, is widen­ing to in­clude more men and young women.
