Plastic Surgery Stats from 2011

WHAT ARE WE DOING? WHERE HAVE WE BEEN?

The top 5 surgical procedures in 2011 were:

breast augmentation - 307,000 up 4%

nose reshaping 244,000 down 3%

liposuction 205,000 up 1%

eyelid surgery 196,000 down 6%

facelift 119,000 up 5%

With the rise in popularity of facelifts, tummy tucks fell from the top 5.

Botox/disport 5.7 million up 5%

tissue fillers 1.9 million up 7%

chemical peel 1.1 million down 3%

laser hair removal 1.1 million up 15%

micro dermabrasion 900,000 up 9%

With the recession, it is not surprising to see the growth of non-surgical

procedures.

Actually, without local statistics, but observing as a Fort Myers plastic surgeon, I think our profile is very similar.
