Plastic Surgery Rates Rise with Economy

As the economy improves, more Americans are getting plastic surgery.

That's the finding of an annual report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

For the second year in a row, plastic surgery is on the rise.

During the recession, numbers had dropped.

About 1.6 Americans went under the knife for cosmetic reasons in 2011.

But those rates are still below ones in 2005, when a record 2.1 million Americans had a little nip or tuck.

And there's another change, every year more Americans are opting for non-surgical tweaks including Botox, facial fillers and laser hair removal.
