FORT WORTH, Texas -- More than 1.5 million Americans went under the knife to improve their appearance last year. That number is up from the past two years and some plastic surgeons say this year is looking even better.

Gina Wigginton consulted with plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Anderson about a lower facelift.

"Just to perk myself up a little more," Wigginton said.

It wasn't her first time in Anderson's office.

"First time ever was in April of 2009 and I was in my 40s and had my children, and I thought I needed to focus some time back on me and make myself look youthful again," she said.
