WOODBURY, New York –April 2, 2014– Stephen T. Greenberg, M.D., with offices in Woodbury, Southampton and Manhattan, is seeing an increase in business due to people using their tax refunds to pay for surgical procedures. "Surprisingly, our overall business is up about 30 percent this time of the year," confides Dr. Greenberg. "The reason is two-fold really. Most patients want to have their surgery done during the winter and spring months, so that they are healed and prepared for the summer. The other factor contributing to the flood of new patients is that it’s currently tax season. We are seeing numerous patients putting their tax return towards cosmetic procedures and esthetic improvements. Business stemming from tax refunds is up roughly 30 percent – more than any year prior.”

The "New Age" of Cosmetic Surgery
In the not too distant past, cosmetic surgery was thought to be mostly for people in their mid-50's. As our societal views change, and cosmetic procedures are more available, many new and younger age groups are undergoing cosmetic procedures.
Patients from ages 18 years and up are frequently undergoing breast augmentation and liposuction procedures; in addition to ear surgery, breast reduction and nasal surgery. We all remember when high school students returned from their school breaks with new noses. These procedures have expanded to include many other cosmetic surgeries and to many other age groups. For instance, college students are often having liposuction, breast augmentation and other procedures during their school breaks. School teachers also avail themselves of procedures during these vacations. Overall, every age group is now having age-appropriate procedures at an increasing rate.
