Cosmetic surgery trends keep on changing every year and a number of factors contribute to the evolving trends. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) recently released a data sheet revealing the change in trend of cosmetic procedures over a decade, from 2000 to 2014. The demand for butt lifts was the highest as it was up by a whopping 158-percent since 2000 with a total of 3,505 lifts performed last year.
Here is a look at the percentage increase and decrease of the demand for popular cosmetic surgery procedures over these years. Following are the popular procedures, their demand in 2000 and 2014 and the change in percentage.
In addition to the whopping rise in butt lifts, butt implants have also gained popularity. The demand for the procedure rose to 1,863 in 2014, up from just 942 in 2013. According to the report, the procedures that continue to gain popularity are breast lifts, breast implants and tummy tucks. The report says the rise in surgical weight loss procedures that are medical in nature might have led to the fall in lipo procedures over these years. Also when considering the overall procedures, there is a 12% slump since 2000. This gives a hint of Americans starting to accept the way they are. Also they might be trying out the natural ways first and considering surgery only as a last resort.
