As economic indicators such as auto, retail, and home sales saw gains in 2012 - so too did plastic surgery. According to statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), 14.6 million cosmetic plastic surgery procedures, including both minimally-invasive and surgical, were performed in the United States in 2012.
Minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures and facial rejuvenation procedures fueled cosmetic surgery growth in 2012.

He is currently making plans to travel to developing countries with the Smile Train Medical Exchange Program to help children who are suffering from cleft palate and other debilitating disfigurements.
