Cosmetic surgery is on the rise in the United States, with over 17 million procedures performed over the last year. Out of those, how many were facial cosmetic surgery procedures?
Dr. Fredric Newman discusses facial plastic surgery statistics and explains why so many patients choose to undergo these treatments at our Darien, CT practice.
The following statistics were reported by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This information reflects the current trends and how they compare to years past.
In 2017, 1.8 million cosmetic surgery procedures were performed. Two of the top five procedures were facial cosmetic treatments:
Other procedures making the top five list included breast augmentation, liposuction, and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).
There were 15.7 million minimally invasive cosmetic procedures performed in 2017. All five of the top treatments targeted the face.
The study performed by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports a 2 percent increase in cosmetic procedures since 2016. Both surgical and non-surgical treatments are becoming more popular. However, the trend toward minimally invasive techniques is notable: Since the year 2000, non-surgical treatments have increased by 200 percent.
More and more patients are taking advantage of facial plastic surgery and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures.
