Industry Figures On The Most Popular Procedures
Changing people’s faces, figures, and self-image is also changing the face of modern medicine. Feeling great is important, but the desire to look just as great is gaining daily. A number of surprising studies reveal that the increase in cosmetic surgery is occurring among both men and women, across nearly all age groups. Here are the front runners in the cosmetic surgery field today.
Breast-related cosmetic surgeries, including reconstruction, augmentation, and reduction, increased over fifteen percent, from 317,000 to 380,000. This figure does not include male breast reduction (gynecomastia) procedures, which increased from 18,000 to 23,000 for a net increase of roughly twenty-three percent.
This was the only area where a downward trend was noted from 2011. Liposuction accounted for around 311,000 procedures in 2012 versus 325,000 in 2011, a loss of four percent. However, at over three hundred thousand procedures, liposuction continues to be an extremely popular cosmetic surgery option.
Facelifts and related procedures such as rhinoplasties (nose jobs) and Botox injections make facial surgery by far the most popular cosmetic procedure. According to a new report from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, these procedures, including chemical peels, laser hair removal and skin rejuvenation, and microdermabrasion made up nearly 6,771,000 separate procedures.
Weight loss and its effects on the body have long been one of the biggest concerns of cosmetic surgery. Bariatric surgery such as the “lap band” causes weight loss, but leaves the patient with unsightly stretch marks and excess skin. Body contouring procedures such as lower-body lift, abdominoplasty, upper arm lift, and thigh lift surgeries represent over 206,000 cosmetic surgery procedures.
