A new health reform bill could levy a tax on elective cosmetic procedures—and plastic surgeons are not happy about it.
The 5 % excise tax would affect patients going in for face-lifts or even teeth whitening, but not those having surgery to repair an injury or deformity.

The majority of women receiving cosmetic procedures have incomes between $30,000 and $90,000, he said.
