It’s that time of year again – the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) annual plastic surgery statistics report are out!

According to ASPS President, New York City plastic surgeon Alan Matarasso, “The newly released 2018 statistic from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the largest organization of board certified plastic surgeons in the world, confirms the safety and popularity of plastic surgery.  It also underscores the benefits of consulting with ASPS members who are qualified to assist patients in determining what treatments may be best for them, whether surgical, non-surgical or a combination approach to satisfy their goals.

I got my first muscle-relaxing toxin injections at the tender age of 26 (I’m now this close to turning 42). I was a magazine editor in New York City at the time so exotic trips, fine dining and even designer handbags were constantly being bestowed on me (gratis, of course), so I didn’t bat an eye before accepting an invitation to the penthouse of the then-brand-new W Times Square to meet a prominent dermatologist and experience the effects of neurotoxin injections first-hand.

I’m no stranger to injectables, but I never considered filler for my lips until about a year ago (I’m 41). Size wasn’t the issue, however the first signs of crinkling on the skin around my lips were, so I added this to my mental cosmetic to-do list—and that’s where it stayed until I was offered the opportunity to try Restylane Silk. As the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler specifically for enhancing the lips and smoothing lines around the mouth, obviously I jumped at the chance. A few weeks later, I found myself at the Boca Raton, Florida office of oculoplastic surgeon (and world-renowned injectable master) Dr. Steven Fagien. Having known Dr. Fagien professionally for almos
