Top Plastic Surgery Procedures for Women and MenAugust 10, 2017
Innovations in surgical techniques over the years have made plastic surgery procedures safer and more effective. Each year millions of surgical and non-surgical aesthetic procedures are performed in the country, helping to improve the physical appearance as well as quality of life of many women and men.
Most of these procedures can be tailored to meet the unique anatomical and cosmetic goals of a patient. Board certified and prolific plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie MD provides cutting edge cosmetic and reconstructive procedures to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities and town across the geographical landscape.
Growth of Plastic Surgery
The American people spent over $15 billion on invasive and non-invasive cosmetic procedures in 2016, as per the recent multi-specialty statistical report of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). This spending represents a jump of 11 percent over the previous year.
Nearly 56 percent of this amount was spent on cosmetic surgery procedures, while the balance 44 percent was spent on non-invasive aesthetic procedures. The amount of $15 billion spent in 2016 is the biggest amount spent in a single year ever since ASAPS established its annual Cosmetic Surgery National Data Bank Statistics survey two decades ago.
The figures published by ASAPS indicate a growing demand for more refined aesthetic procedures. For instance, more women now want to have fat transfer procedure for breast enhancement as well as facial improvement. Breast lift is another procedure gaining popularity because of its more subtle effects compared to breast implants.
But the traditional breast implant surgery also continues to grow in absolute terms, which shows an overall increase in demand for plastic surgery procedures. Procedures such as labiaplasty, which were once considered niche, have now become mainstream. Men’s procedures are also witnessing consistent growth year after year.
Top Five Procedures
The 2016 ASAPS data shows that the top five most sought after cosmetic surgery procedures for women and men combined include:
- Liposuction – 414,335 procedures
- Breast Augmentation – 310,444 procedures
- Tummy Tuck – 181,540 procedures
- Eyelid Surgery – 173,883 procedures
- Breast Lift – 161,412 procedures
Liposuction produces targeted body contouring results in a less invasive manner, and can be combined with various other cosmetic procedures.
Both breast implant surgery and fat transfer breast augmentation are now sought by women who want to enhance their breast size.
Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a major body contouring surgery to restore a firmer and flatter abdomen by removing excess skin and fat, and tightening loose abdominal muscles.
Upper face rejuvenation can be achieved with procedures such as upper and lower eyelid surgery. These procedures may be performed individually or combined as per the patient’s unique needs.
Women with sagging breasts can achieve a subtle lift to create firmer, more youthful looking breasts with a breast lift surgery. The procedure is often combined with breast augmentation to create more comprehensive outcomes.
