New Top Ten: Plastic Surgery Statistics From 2009

By Dr. Sutton Graham on March 09, 2010


The word is out. The American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery just published it's annual statistics for cosmetic surgery.

TOP FIVE FOR WOMEN (90%)
1. Breast Augmentation
2. Liposuction
3. Eyelid Surgery
4. Tummy Tuck
5. Breast Reduction

TOP FIVE FOR MEN
1. Liposuction
2. Rhinoplasty
3. Eyelid Surgery
4. Breast Reduction
5. Hair Transplantation

Our own experience with women is similar, although Facelift is also very common. For men in our practice the procedures differ from national trends. We do more facelifts and necklifts along with eyelid surgery. We do liposuction, male breast reduction (gynecomastia treatment), but not rhinoplasty or hair transplants (but we do plenty of laser hair removal).

In the non-surgical realm, wrinkle treatment with botulinum toxin (Botox or Dysport) remains the most common procedure.

TOP FIVE NON-SURGICAL TREATMENTS:
1. Botox (Dysport)
2. Filler (Hyaluronic, Restylane, Juvederm)
3. Laser Hair Removal
4. Microdermabrasion
5. Chemical Peel

In our practice, the trends are similar. Botulinum toxin & injectable fillers are most common. Laser & intense pulsed light treatments for hair, pigment, blood vessels, skin texture, etc. are common as well. We offer a wider range of options than just hair removal. We also offer more advanced non-surgical treatments than microdermabrasion.
