On Wednesday, February 26, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons published a press release announcing that “more than 15 million cosmetic surgeries and minimally invasive procedures were performed in 2013.” This is a 3 percent increase compared to 2012 and represents the fourth consecutive year of growth recorded by the organization.
While liposuction, rhinoplasty, and laser hair removal procedures declined in 2013, there was a significant increase in facelifts, eyelid surgery, neck lifts, and butt augmentations, reports the source.
“Facial rejuvenation procedures were especially robust last year, with more Americans opting for facelifts, forehead lifts, eyelid surgery, fillers and peels,” Dr. Robert Murphy, president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, said in a press statement. “With new devices and products hitting the market each year, there are more options and choices available to consumers wanting to refresh their look or [undergo] a little nip and tuck.”
Of the 13.4 million minimally invasive procedures performed in 2013, the press release reveals that Botox was the most common, noting that doctors administered 6.3 million Botox injections over the course of the year. Breast augmentation was the most popular cosmetic surgery, with 290,000 procedures performed in 2013.
If you’re unhappy with your face or body, why not join the millions of Americans who opt for cosmetic surgery each year? This is a great way to boost your confidence because when you look your best, you’re more likely to feel your best, too.
