Plastic surgery is a growing trend that’s not going to end any time soon. According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there were 17.5 million cosmetic procedures done in 2017. Many of those were minimally-invasive involving injectables, microdermabrasion or chemical peels, but approximately two million of those procedures were more in-depth including tummy tucks, breast augmentations, and liposuction.
Overall, there were two percent more plastic surgeries performed in 2017 than in 2016, and the top three procedures were:
- Breast Augmentation: More than 300,000 women opted for breast augmentation last year, which involves breast implants or fat transfer to enhance the size of your breasts. This type of breast surgery has been at the top of the list for most popular plastic surgeries for many years. Women have more choices than ever when it comes to implant type, placement, size, and incision site.
- Liposuction: 246,354 Americans chose liposuction in 2017, which involves surgical fat removal from stubborn areas such as the “love handles,” thighs, and abdomen. This plastic surgery is often combined with a tummy tuck and/or breast augmentation for a “Mommy Makeover” to help women take back their pre-baby body.
- Rhinoplasty: Also known as a “nose job,” rhinoplasties have been popular for many years. In 2017, there were 218,924 rhinoplasty procedures performed in the United States. This procedure is often used to correct aesthetic issues such as a large nose, bridge hump, bulbous tip, and other dissatisfactions men and women have with their noses.
