An industry facelift

As celebrities drive up demand for plastic surgery and other cosmetic procedures, more doctors, dentists and even businesspeople who aren't plastic surgeons are getting in the game.

That's raising questions about whether the procedures are properly supervised and complaints from plastic surgeons that they're increasingly being called on to fix others' shoddy work.

The "increasing democratization of cosmetic surgery" is causing problems in plastic surgeons' business models and bad medical outcomes for some patients, said Vikram Reddy, M.D., a plastic surgeon and chief of clinical integration at Henry Ford Macomb Hospital.

In the 1980s and 1990s, plastic surgeons conducted the vast majority of all cosmetic surgery — reaching a record high 17 million procedures in 2016, up 3 percent from 2015.

But the past decade has seen an increase in gynecologists performing vaginal rejuvenation, general surgeons conducting body contouring procedures after bariatric surgery, emergency physicians doing breast reconstruction, and ear, nose and throat doctors performing facelifts, Reddy said.
