In his 1979 Oscar welcome, host Johnny Carson said, “I’m very thrilled to stand up here tonight and gaze out on this glorious throng of beautiful people. I see a lot of new faces. Especially on the old faces.”
For as long as Hollywood films have been raising eyebrows, Hollywood stars have been raising the rest of their faces to maintain the camera’s love. But tinsel town has no monopoly on plastic surgery. Nor should plastic surgery be seen only as the province of the vain.
Millions who have mastectomies or are burn victims are grateful that plastic surgeons are among local service providers. Now, as a fascinating new report from RealtyTrac indicates, they may predict housing affordability.
The report is based on physician data from the American Medical Association, average fixed-loan house payment data from Freddie Mac, and annual median household income statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau. In it are several extractable metrics, including one that compares counties of 100,000 or more that have the highest number of plastic surgeons per capita, and then ranks them by housing affordability.
Below are the counties of more than 100,000 people in which plastic surgeons are highest in number (i.e. there is one surgeon for the lowest number of people). Then, the county’s home affordability percentage is given.
