Cosmetic Surgery ProceduresThe American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) has released the statistical data on the cosmetic procedures performed in the country last year. According to the report, there were 17.1 million surgical and minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures performed in the United States in 2016. This includes nearly 1.8 million cosmetic surgical procedures and 15.5 million minimally-invasive procedures.

In 2016, the overall cosmetic surgical procedures grew at a slightly higher rate of four percent compared to minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures, which grew by three percent. Here is the list of the top 5 cosmetic surgical procedures performed in the country in 2016:

  • Breast augmentation: A total of 290,467 procedures were performed by Americans last year. This marked a 4 percent increase considering the figures from 2015.
  • Liposuction: A total of 235,237 procedures were performed in the US in 2016. This shows an impressive increase of 6 percent compared to statistics of 2015.
  • Nose reshaping: This treatment was the third most performed in the US last year with a total of 223,018 procedures. It noted an increase of 2 percent considering the figures of 2015.
  • Eyelid surgery: With a total of 209,020 procedures, this procedure is the fourth in the list of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures performed in 2016. It noted a 2% increase considering the popularity in 2015.
  • Facelift: Marking the 5th spot in the list, a total of 131,106 face lift procedures were performed in the country last year. This is about 4 percent increase from the figures of 2015.

New cosmetic trends in facelifts and fat are also highlighted in the report. Interestingly, three of the five top cosmetic surgical procedures were focused on the face. Minimally invasive cosmetic fat injections increased 13% whereas buttock augmentation using fat grafting increased 26% and breast augmentation using fat grafting increased 72%.

Talking on the report, an ASPS official said “A decade ago plastic surgeons might have seen a patient every seven to ten years when they needed a major procedure like a facelift or tummy tuck. Now patients have ongoing relationships with their plastic surgeons and feel more comfortable discussing all areas of their body that they may be interested in rejuvenating.”
