Plastic Surgery Procedures on the Rise
New data from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) shows that many modern cosmetic surgical procedures are on the rise, and that surgical procedures account for 77% of all surveyed physicians’ business. The latest annual survey (Cosmetic Surgery National Data Bank Statistics) from the organization now reflects input exclusively from ABPS board-certified plastic surgeons, which previously encompassed data from physicians in a wider range of specialties.
This new data showed that many surgical procedures that were previously believed to be on the decline are actually increasing in popularity. Many plastic surgery procedures are on the rise, including breast lift, eyelid surgery, upper arm lifts, and liposuction. Breast lifts are up by 13.9 percent over the past year and 57.5 percent over the past five years, Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is up 26.3 percent over the past year and 33.5 percent over the past five years, Liposuction is up 16.5 percent over the past year and 58.0 percent over the past five years, and Upper arm lifts are up 20.1 percent over the past year and 59.1 percent over the past five years.
The data also found the top five surgical and nonsurgical procedures for men and women. These include:
