A billion dollars worth of unwanted fat: liposuction was top cosmetic surgery in 2013.
In 2013 Americans chose to have fat removed by liposuction 363,900 times. Liposuction spending was eatimated at $1,024,300,000. Lipo was more common than breast augmentation, which is frequently the top national procedure. Liposuction increased 16% from the prior year. These figures do not include CoolSculpting, a nonsurgical fat reduction method that is increasingly popular. These statistics are from the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS) of which Dr. Graham is an active member.
