Specialized media reported that between mid December and early January the number of plastic surgeries in the state of Yucatan increased in a significant way. This, due to the fact that people usually get Christmas bonuses and “aguinaldo” at the end of the year. Besides, patients prefer to use the December holidays to recover from an operation, according to Fernando José Nuñez Proulx, an specialist with certification from the Mexican Council of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery.
Nuñes Proulx indicated that 9 out of 10 aesthetic surgical operations performed in Yucatan have been done in women, being liposuction, rhinoplasty and breast enlargement the most current procedures, together with botox and facial surgeries that have also a great demand.
It is estimated that in one year in Yucatan, the 23 Merida based plastic surgeons certified by the Mexican Council of Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery and the Mexican Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery perform, on average, 4,500 surgeries.
Regarding the costs of aesthetic interventions, the surgeon explained that “the cost is still substantial, but more people have been finding it affordable. About 15 or 20 years ago the cost of a cosmetic surgery was very high. It is no longer something exclusive of artists or people of high purchasing power “said Núñez Proulx.
Recent data from the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) reveal that Mexico occupies the fifth global place of aesthetic surgical operations with 957, 814 procedures recorded during 2016, that is, 3.9 percent of all interventions registered worldwide.
In the world, the most performed aesthetic surgeries are breast augmentation with 15.8 percent of all procedures, followed by liposuction with 14 percent, eyelid surgery 12.9 percent, rhinoplasty 7.6 percent and abdominoplasty, 7.4 per cent.
