Plastic surgeons frequently have cosmetic surgery themselves, a new survey shows, making them walking billboards for their trade.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons surveyed 276 of its members and found that 62 percent of them had undergone at least one cosmetic procedure. This most often included Botox injections and chemical peels.
Also, a third of these doctors had undergone an actual invasive surgery, with liposuction being the most common procedure.
Many of the surgeons in the survey were women. And, the findings may indicate that plastic surgeons can use themselves as examples for potential patients. After all, someone who is interested in a particular procedure can not only ask their surgeon for information, but also see a real-life example of the results!
