What are the most common plastic surgical procedures?


Published on October 28, 2012 by


Statistics show that cosmetic surgeries are on the rise; the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that there were 13.8 million cosmetic procedures performed in the United States in 2011, an increase of 5% over 2010.

Surgical procedures:

Breast augmentation has been the top cosmetic surgical procedure since 2006, at 307 thousand (up 4%).
Rhinoplasty is number two, at 244 thousand.
Liposuction was up 1% at 205 thousand.
Eyelid lift – 196 thousand.
Facelift – 116 thousand.
Non-surgical procedures (up 6%):
Botulinum Toxin A is still the most common non-surgical procedure, 5.7 million procedures, up 5%.
Then fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm, 1.9 million.
Chemical peels – 1.1 million
Laser hair removal and microdermabrasion are 4th and 5th.

The top 5 in men:

Rhinoplasty
Eyelid lift
Liposuction
Male breast reduction (gynecomastia surgery)
Facelift

Top 5 in women:

Breast augmentation
Rhinoplasty
Liposuction
Eyelid lift
Tummy tuck

There seems to be a new trend though that might be of interest:
The biggest increase in plastic surgery is now chin augmentation, up 71% over last year.
Lip augmentation is also up significantly, 49%.
Buttock implants and/or lift up 40%.
