Plastic Surgery Statistics
Recent statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgery (ASPS) confirm what has become to be the recent trend in Plastic Surgery, less is more. What that means is more people, including men, are having more minimally invasive procedures in recent years. There has been some overall increase in Plastic Surgery as the economy has improved. Botox and soft tissue fillers, the two most common minimally invasive procedures have continued to grow throughout the period of a shaky economy. There has been an increase in men having Plastic Surgery, which was mostly eyelid procedures, Botox and fillers, related to their need to look younger in the work place.
The top five surgical procedures were, in decreasing order, Breast augmentation, nose reshaping, eyelid surgery, liposuction and tummy tucks. There has been an overall increase in body contouring procedures which has been related to the increase in demand from patients with massive weight loss. Breast augmentation has increased again with 60% of women choosing silicone gel implants in recent years.
The top five minimally invasive procedures in decreasing order were, Botox, soft tissue fillers, chemical peels, laser hair removal and microdermabrasion. As the demand for procedures that have little to no down time, you can easily see why Botox and Fillers would top the list.
The top five reconstructive procedures were, tumor removal, laceration repair, scar revision, hand surgery and breast reconstruction. Breast reconstruction is new to the list and is related to the efforts of the ASPS to make women aware of their options for breast reconstruction.
