Sacramento California – Almost 10 million cosmetic procedures were performed in the United States in 2009, according to statistics released by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (March 09, 2010) . The Aesthetic Society, which has collected multi-specialty procedural statistics since 1997, says the overall number of cosmetic procedures has increased 147 percent since the tracking of the statistics first began.

This represents a decrease of 2% in comparison to last year (data from the same source). At Chrysalis Cosmetics we have witnessed an increase in facial rejuvenation with fillers, blepharoplasty, lasers and facelifts and compared to last year an increase in abdominoplasty or tummy tucks and liposuction interest. We are so happy to be a part of so many exciting transitions or jump starts to the spring and summer seasons. We are looking forward to a great year ahead.
