About a Quarter of Plastic Surgeons Offer In-Office Treatments

A recent survey of physician incomes revealed that plastic surgery was among the top ten highest paid medical specialties. The average salary of a plastic surgeon was $321,000, and this was even higher for those who were self-employed in a group practice, with an average salary of about $383,000. Plastic surgeons made about twice as much as the lowest-paying medical specialty in the survey, making plastic surgery a lucrative choice for medical students to consider.

One option is to use an EMLA™ cream to numb your patient's skin in the treatment area. However, this may mean your patient has to wait for the anesthetic to take effect.

There is great demand for cosmetic injectables, and the industry is booming. Most experts expect the popularity of cosmetic injectables to continue their growth in the coming years, and as more and more people opt for cosmetic treatments, more and more medical professionals are needed to provide the treatments. The popularity of Medspas and other dedicated cosmetic facilities is growing, and they seem to be popping up everywhere these days.

Even dentists in some areas are offering cosmetic injections, as they improve the look of their patients' teeth and then expand that treatment area to include their patients' mouth and surrounding skin. The growing cosmetic ...
