About the new statistics

A paper-based questionnaire was mailed to 7,000 plastic surgeons board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. An online version of the questionnaire was also available. A total of 331 board-certified plastic surgeons returned questionnaires. While surveys were distributed to all domestic, board-certified plastic surgeons, the results may reflect the activities of surgeons who primarily conduct aesthetic surgical procedures. Final figures have been projected to reflect nationwide statistics. Confidence intervals change by procedure, depending on the grouping’s sample size and the response variance, though the overall survey portion of this research has a standard error of +/- 5.26% at a 95% level of confidence.
