    Plastic Surgery is Surging in America

    Plastic Surgery is Surging in AmericaHaving an attractive physical appearance is the innate desire of a human being. Advancements in plastic surgery techniques and technology in recent years have encouraged a growing number of people to seek these treatments to fulfill their aesthetic aspirations.

    Growing Popularity

    Innovations have been introduced in several plastic surgery procedures to make them less invasive, less painful and having a faster recovery period. Success rates are much higher with improved safety protocols, and more so, when the procedures are performed by highly qualified and board certified plastic surgeons.
    According to the figures provided by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), in 2015, a total of 15.9 million surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures performed in the US. This roughly comes to about one procedure per 16 adults in the country.

    Latest Trends

    The following are some of the important trends in the field of plastic surgery in the US at present. All figures are provided by the ASPS:
     
    Overall Procedure Growth
    In 2000, a little over 7.4 million cosmetic procedures were performed in the US. This number has grown to 15.9 million in 2015, representing an increase of 115 percent.
     
    Growth in Minimally Invasive Procedures
    With improvements in techniques, the demand for non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures has been growing at a phenomenal pace. More patients prefer procedures that are relatively less invasive or minimally invasive. The top five minimally invasive procedures for 2015 included the following:

    • Botox: 6.7 million
    • Dermal Fillers: 2.4 million
    • Chemical Peels: 1.3 m
    • Laser Hair Removal: 1.1 m
    • Microdermabrasion: 0.8 m

     
    Most Popular Cosmetic Surgery Procedures
    While liposuction continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the US, the number one procedure in 2015 was breast augmentation surgery. The total number of surgeries for the top five procedures performed in 2015 was as follows:

    • Breast Augmentation: 279,143
    • Liposuction: 222,051
    • Nose Reshaping: 217,919
    • Eyelid Surgery: 203,934
    • Tummy Tuck: 127,967

     
    Biggest Percentage Growth in Buttock Implants
    Buttock augmentation surgery, which involves surgical insertion of silicone implants to make the buttocks appear fuller and rounder, has emerged as the fastest growing cosmetic surgery procedure in 2015. This procedure was almost non-existent in 2000. In 2015, the number of butt implant procedures performed was 2,540, while in 2014 only 1,863 procedures were performed.
     
    Diversification in Procedures
    Plastic surgery is no longer confined just to facelifts or breast implants. Americans increasingly seek procedures for different parts of the body. Procedures in 2015 included:

    • Breast Lift: 99,614
    • Buttock: 4,767
    • Lower Body: 8,431
    • Upper Arm: 4,959
