How Do the 2017 Statistics Compare?
Posted May 28, 2018 in Top Procedures of 2017
Every year, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) releases a comprehensive analysis of all cosmetic procedures performed for the previous year. These reports allow for clarification of which cosmetic procedures are growing in popularity and which are maintaining their top spots. If these reports prove anything, it’s that the desire to look our best is as strong as ever, and whether it requires surgical or non-surgical methods, men and women everywhere are more than willing to do what it takes.
What Do the Numbers Say?
Top Five Surgical Procedures of 2017
- Breast Augmentation
- Breast Lift
- Tummy tuck
- Eyelid surgery
Top Five Minimally Invasive Procedure of 2017
- BOTOX® Cosmetic
- Dermal fillers
- Laser hair removal
- Fat reduction
- Chemical peels
How Do These Compare?
Not surprisingly, even though the number of procedures has changed (and for the most part increased), the top five surgical procedures have remained relatively consistent, with the only change from 2016 coming from the tummy tuck procedure replacing facelift surgery for the fifth spot. The top five minimally invasive procedures have stayed the same over the past few years; however, the number of minimally invasive procedures performed, including BOTOX® Cosmetic, has increased nearly 200 percent since 2000, with over 15 million procedures completed in 2017 alone. These statistics demonstrate how men and women feel about combating the unwanted effects of aging.
