Cosmetic Surgery Grows in Popularity

So, what’s hot in cosmetic surgery now?

A pleasant surprise is the resurgence in the number of people wanting face lifts. The number of face lifts done in 2007 was 14% more than the number performed in 2006. This may reflect the fact that fillers and botulinum (or botox) can only do so much to rejuvenate one’s face. If there is redundant skin then only a face lift will provide a solution.

Breast augmentation numbers showed and increase of 6% more than the number done in 2006.

Breast reductions increased 2%, while gynecomastion (male breast surgery) operations increased 7%.


Overall there were 12 million cosmetic procedures performed in 2007 a 7% increase over 2006.

The following were the top five surgical procedures:

1. Breast augmentation (348,000 - up 6%)

2. Liposuction (302,000 - unchanged)

3. Rhinoplasty (285,000 - down 7%)

4. Blephoroplasty eyelids (241,000 - up 3%)

5. Abdominoplasty (148,000 - up 1%)

Non-invasive, non-surgical procedures continue their high demand. There were nearly 10 million minimally invasive procedures performed.

1. Botox (4.6 million - up 13%)

2. Hyaluronic Acid Fillers (1.1 million - up 35%)

3. Chemical Peels (1 million - down 4%)

4. Laser Hair Removal (906,000 - up 2%)

5. Microdermabrasion (897,000 - up 10%)

There you have it! The battle to turn back the hands of time continues.
