San Francisco is known for many things:the Golden Gate Bridge, sourdough bread, clam chowder and now cosmetic surgery. Over the past decade, a rise in plastic surgery in the bay area is a trend that is hard not to notice. San Francisco natives are known for their culinary and music scene but it is rarely associated with appearance altering procedures. This trend shows that the cosmetic surgery popularity is no fad and will continue to sweep the nation.
It is a surprise that Breast Implants in San Francisco have become so popular. It is less surprising to hear Miami, Beverley Hills, or New York City as big spenders on breast implants but San Francisco is a high consumer as well. Women in northern California are also concerned with breast size just as much as their Southern California counter parts, it seems. It helps that there are clinics now that use environmentally friendly implants as well. There is no longer just one type of implants available for the patients to choose from. It used to be just silicone that was available forimplants but with new technology comes new discoveries and more options are sprouting up for patients to choose for their breast implants. Some that are even not damaging to out depleting natural resources. This must be partially the reason why cosmetic surgery has risen in San Francisco since many natives prefer the green approach. Apparently the trend even applies to cosmetic surgery.
Rhinoplasty in San Francisco is also a procedure that is also gaining traction in the San Francisco. There used to be a stigma with rhinoplasty since many celebrities were using nose injuries or excuses of having a deviated septum in order to alter the appearance of their noses. Since then though the stigma has lifted and celebrities no longer feel the need to hide their surgeries anymore. This has trickled down and has created a rise in cosmetic nose augmentation amongst non celebrities. In addition, due to the rise of cosmetic clinics around the state, costs are also lowering so plastic surgery has become more and more affordable. This is because with an increase of demand for the product, supply will naturally rise as well. It then becomes a cycle of prices going down because of the higher demand and supply going up because demand is rising. It is this continuous cycle that keeps plastic surgeons in high demand in the state of California and San Francisco in particular.
