Des Moines, Iowa is not a city one would think of as a Mecca for cosmetic and plastic surgery. There are statistics that will surprise you, such as the fact that Des Moines is a place where the number of cosmetic surgery clinics keeps growing at a rapid pace, along with reconstructive plastic surgical procedures.
Since most of Iowa’s plastic and cosmetic surgeons are located in the major urban areas, and as Des Moines has become a top business and trade center, the largest concentration of plastic and cosmetic surgeons and clinics are located here. Most popular among the procedures requested are breast enhancement, breast reduction, weight loss surgery, eyelids and face lifts, tummy tucks, rhinoplasty, dermabrasion, hair transplants, Botox and others.
With Des Moines’ growth as a tourist city, thanks in great part to the arts and cultural aspects being developed, many out-of-towners find themselves drawn to extended stays. Businesses in Des Moines are also becoming international in flavor. What all of this means to the cosmetic and plastic surgeons in the city is an expanding clientele that is not local to the city itself. Many private cosmetic surgery clinics have opened to accommodate these new clients and many new procedures are being introduced into spa-like atmospheres. The latest in European cosmetic surgical and spa equipment can be found along with the basic techniques.
While Des Moines may not be Beverly Hills, Hollywood or New York, it has taken on an atmosphere of sophistication in its plastic and cosmetic surgery offices and surgeons.
