Plastic surgery has become a major part of the American culture, as well as one of the most lucrative industries.
And as the US plastic surgeon industry grows, so does the demand for plastic surgery.
And in fact, as plastic surgery becomes more popular, demand for surgery is expected to outpace supply.
The US surgeon market in 2015 was worth $12.5bn, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.
But as the demand grows, plastic surgeons are also getting paid more.
The average salary of a plastic surgeon is $132,000.
And a survey of 1,000 surgeons by the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) in January found that 82% of them had been making more than $100,000 since 2013.
And the most common type of plastic surgery surgery is arm plastic surgery (the kind most often performed by surgeons in China, Japan and the United Kingdom), followed by breast and face, face lift and liposuction.
What’s the demand?
Plastic surgery is now a top-selling specialty in the US, accounting for 13% of the industry’s revenue, and about $10bn in revenue a year.
The demand is so high that it has prompted companies to start their own plastic surgery clinics, and to offer services to other parts of the US.
But plastic surgery can be pricey, and some surgeons, like the surgeons who have opened up their own clinics, are facing legal bills, such as a lawsuit filed by a former plastic surgeon in New York state who claimed she was paid just $6,000 to perform cosmetic surgery on him.
The case is being heard in New Jersey, where the former surgeon was sued for allegedly ripping out his own breast implants.
There is also a recent legal fight over a procedure that allows patients to wear a prosthetic arm and wrist, which is popular with the American male market.
But many of these practices are also under threat, as the American surgeon industry is now undergoing a seismic shift as demand for the practice grows and as the supply of surgeons decreases.
Why does demand increase?
As demand grows and supply is shrinking, it is possible that a surgeon can make more money by operating on a different part of an arm, like a finger or a cheekbone.
But the risk of losing that part of your body can be high.
In a 2015 study, researchers at the University of Minnesota Medical School estimated that removing a finger from an injured arm could cost an average of $10,000 and take five to 10 hours.
In another study, surgeons in New Mexico who operated on a finger on the hand of a man with a history of depression had to wait nearly six hours to remove the digit, and a procedure on a cheek bone could take a week.
But surgeons say that they are getting a lot of offers to operate on new areas of their bodies.
One surgeon who opened his own clinic told the Associated Press: I’ve been doing this for 10 years, and people want to do this to their body.
But you don’t know what they are doing, so you have to be very cautious about what you do.
And there is also the problem of safety.
Plastic surgery remains an unsafe practice in the United States, according the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).
In 2015, more than 1,100 plastic surgeons were injured in emergency room procedures, and more than 30 died.
Plastic surgeons say they are more confident about their safety than ever, as a recent study found that they were more likely to be treated by a physician who was a plastic artist, rather than a plastic specialist, than a surgeon who was an anesthesiologist.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has also reported a dramatic rise in the number of plastic surgeons in the last two decades.
According to its latest statistics, the number has more than doubled since 1997, to more than 6,700 in 2015.
And by 2020, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery expects the number to increase to more that 11,500.
The industry is also booming in the Caribbean.
According the World Health Organization (WHO), there were more than 50,000 plastic surgeons operating in the Dominican Republic in 2015, compared with about 14,000 in 2006.
And according to a study conducted by the Institute of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, more plastic surgeons work in the UK than in the rest of the world combined.
In 2015 the UK recorded about 7,000 cosmetic surgeons, and in 2020 the number is expected more than 20,000, according a study by the Royal College of Surgeons.
But while demand is rising, supply is also growing.
In the United Arab Emirates, which was one of several Gulf countries that allowed foreign doctors to practise plastic surgery as long as they had the right licenses, demand is also increasing, said Dr Abdulahad.
The UAE has more plastic surgery operations per capita than anywhere else in the world.
