However, advancements in the technology has helped people rely more on cosmetic surgeries. Higher demand for cosmetic surgery is not only from female consumers aged 20–30 years, but also from men of the same age group.

People seek to achieve a thin and shaped body with appropriate size, improvement and lighter complexion, imitating western standards. Moreover, the fact that the US is witnessing rapid increase in aging population, a large base of women in the aforementioned age group is expected to generate strong demand for aesthetic services in the country.

It is witnessed that people are capable of affording the advanced cosmetic surgeries, as there is availability of disposable income. Developed economies include more of such people who are capable of affording advanced healthcare facilities rather than the ones in developing economies.

Reimbursement option for minimally invasive treatments and procedures is unavailable in resource-poor nations, which is a factor hampering the demand for such procedures and services.
