Plastic surgery more accepted than ever

According to a survey released by the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery on January 28, an overwhelming majority of US citizens think cosmetic surgery is more accepted today than it was five years ago, with almost as many stating that this shift in perception has made them more comfortable about "getting work done" themselves.

More than 70 percent thought society was less judgmental about the procedures, said the AACS. "This is a confirmation of what many of us have felt for a long time - that cosmetic surgery has become mainstream. A variety of factors have contributed to the normalization of our industry, but the bottom line is that people are not afraid to talk openly about cosmetic surgery anymore."

A fifth of respondents stated they were considering getting cosmetic surgery in the future, with those under the age of 40 being nearly twice as likely.
