    Cosmetic surgery popularity

    In 2005, nearly 11.5 million surgical and non-surgical procedures were performed in the U.S., at a cost of nearly $12.4 billion dollars, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). That’s a 444-percent increase from 1997. Liposuction and eyelid surgery top the surgical procedures list, while Botox and laser hair removal reign when it comes to non-surgical options.

    Only 6 percent of the population has had cosmetic plastic surgery, according to a 2006 American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery survey, but almost 20 percent of Americans plan to have some sort of “work” done during their lifetime.


    1. I wonder what figures we're looking at now. With surgery becoming not only safer but achieving far greater results, coupled with a celebrity culture and people who are looks conscious, I think the popularity will increase, and also outside of the more traditional western world and markets. Botox must surely be the most popular procedure, being non-evasive and really quick too!

    2. Cosmetic surgery and treatments have become more accessible to a broader segment of the population. The widespread evidence of celebrities having procedures has also made facial plastic surgery more in demand and more acceptable.
