Thousands of cosmetic surgery procedures are performed every single month in the United States. According to the American Academy of Plastic Surgeons, 2010 showed an increase in female cosmetic surgeries, with almost 1.5 million procedures reported. It appears that the ladies are taking full advantage of the cosmetic surgeon’s office to help them look good and feel even better!
So if there are millions of procedures every year – which one is the most popular? Breast augmentation still tops the list, as it has for the last five years. Body contouring procedures like liposuction and tummy tucks are on the rise, as the awareness of their benefit grows. The fluctuating economy has had a big effect on the popularity of other procedures, such as eyelid surgery and dermabrasion, which can yield big results with a smaller investment.
Out of the 1,352,477 total female procedures in 2010 – here are the most popular in order:
- Breast Augmentation: 296,203
- Nose Reshaping: 188,676
- Liposuction: 179,207
- Eyelid Surgery: 177,208
- Tummy Tuck: 111,642
- Facelift: 102,052
- Breast lift: 89,931
- Dermabrasion: 59,516
- Forehead lift: 37,765
- Breast Implant Removal: 27,714
From big changes, such as nose reshaping, to cosmetic improvements, such as a breast lift – there is no better time to consider cosmetic surgery than the present. Techniques are constantly improving, providing better results faster and with less down time. Increased financing options are becoming available, as well, to make desired procedures affordable on any budget.
