Several Americans every year are making a plan to enhance their appearance through cosmetic surgery procedures.
Each year the data shows that cosmetic surgery is constantly growing in popularity. In 2015, there were 1.7 million cosmetic surgery patients according to the American Society of Plastic Surgery. Why is cosmetic surgery increasing in popularity, and which procedures are at the forefront of this trend?
What are the top 5 trends this year?
1. Breast Augmentation
Breast Augmentation has been an important part of plastic surgery history since 1961, when the first prosthetic breast was invented. With breast augmentation always at the top of the charts for cosmetic surgical procedures, it is safe to say that the need for bigger breasts aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Last year a reported 279,143 patients have undergone breast augmentation, and have increased 31% in the last 15 years.
2. Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
There are many people in search of the right recipe for youth. However, there is a reported total of over 203,000 Americans that have decided to take their youthful appearance into their own hands. Eyelid Surgery restores juvenescence to the face, and also improves the vision of the many happy patients that no longer want to waste their money on expensive creams that produce little to no results.
Sometimes there is no amount of dieting or working out that will allow you to get the results that the fitness experts promise. Over 222,000 Americans understand that it’s ok to have a little help from liposuction, to provide the results desired. Over the last 15 years, liposuction has continued to be one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the US.
With your nose being the feature that sticks out, right in the middle of your face, it is no wonder that rhinoplasty is so popular. In 2015, over 217,000 patients decided a nose reshaping was the best way to enhance their appearance. Though rhinoplasty was 44% more popular 15 years ago, it still remains in the top 5 cosmetic surgical procedures to date.
5. Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
There are many reasons a tummy tuck is ideal for most Americans. Stomach fat is the hardest to lose above any other part on your body. Being the least of the most popular surgeries just under 128,000, abdominoplasty has actually increased greatly over the last 15 years with a 104% rise in numbers. Sometimes it is best to say goodbye to the painful crunches, and sit ups, and just find the surgeon that is best for the job.
