Is business booming or is business busting? According to a recent video report on, business in at least one New York City plastic surgery practice is growing.

David Rappaport, MD, whose Web site is [removed]here[/removed], is a plastic surgeon who was interviewed about how the economy is affecting his practice. He offers a glowing prognostication about the health of the industry.

Basically, the aesthetic industry is poised to grow even more than in 2007, after the bear market dies and a bull market emerges.

Where he works, Rappaport reports a 30% increase in business. He also claims that there are "fewer certified checks and more credit cards" being used by patients who are opting for "more small procedures."
