Cosmetic Procedures Increase 7%
Here are the highlights from 2007 from ASPS:
Facelifts up 14 %
Breast Implants up 6%
Slight increase for eyelid surgery
Ethnic patients up 13%
Mild inc. in breast reduction & reconstruction
Decreases in rhinoplasty
Steep drops in collagen and hair transplants
The biggest news was that facelifts, that had decreased in the last few years, now returned as more commonly requested by patients. This may be due to realization of the limits of Botox and Hyaluronic acid fillers (Restylane, etc.). They don't correct laxity, sagging, drooping skin & deeper layers.
Breast augmentation remains the most popular procedure, and its popularity increased. It remains popular in 2008 at our office.
The TOP FIVE surgery procedures were: Augmentation, Liposuction, Rhinoplasty, Eyelid, and Tummy tuck. The TOP FIVE non-surgical procedures were: Botox, Hyaluronic fillers, Peels, Laser hair removal, and Microdermabrasion.
