A new poll from Vanity Fair and CBS 60 Minutes asked respondents which plastic surgery procedures they would seek if they knew the operations would be kept secret and would have successful results. The highest percentage, 31 percent, said they would want to get an operation to improve the appearance of their stomachs. The poll surveyed more than 1,000 adults nationwide.
Overall, Americans seem to be increasingly focused on making their abdomens more attractive. According to a recent report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of abdominoplasty operations, commonly known as tummy tucks, increased 79 percent between 2000 and 2013.
The only cosmetic surgical procedure that saw a more dramatic increase in popularity during that 13 year period was the buttock lift. While only 1,356 people had buttock lifts in 2000, 2,438 did in 2013 — a growth of 80 percent. Tummy tucks saw a 5 percent increase between 2012 and 2013 alone, with nearly 112,000 people getting abdominoplasty procedures last year.
In the Vanity Fair poll, 9 percent said they would have work done on their noses, and 8 percent said they would like to improve their chins. Six percent said they would seek operations on their eyes, while another 6 percent would opt for a breast operation. Five percent would choose to make their thighs more attractive.
