The number of plastic surgeries performed each year has increased by more than 100 percent over the last sixteen years. More and more young men and women are choosing to undergo plastic surgery than ever before. In 2015, nearly 2 million plastic surgeries and 14 million non-invasive cosmetic procedures were done across the United States.
This increasingly popular trend seems to focus on these five procedures:
1. Breast Augmentation
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there were 279,143 breast augmentations in 2015 making it the most popular plastic surgery. There are many forms of breast augmentation including:
- Breast lifts
- Breast reductions
- Breast implants
- Gynecomastia (male breast reduction)
3. Nose Reshaping (Rhinoplasty)
In 2015, there were 217,979 nose reshaping surgeries performed across the country. Rhinoplasties have been extremely popular for many years, and Maryland has seen this increasing trend as well. Our board-certified plastic surgeon does many nose alterations each year.
4. Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)
Eyelid surgery is done to help under eye bags, sagging eyelids, puffiness and other effects of aging on the eyes. Sometimes, a blepharoplasty is medically necessary if the upper eyelid is impacting vision. More than 200,000 eyelid lifts were implemented in 2015.
5. Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Tummy tucks are a great way to get rid of excess skin, stretch marks and stubborn fat. They are commonly done in conjunction with breast augmentation and liposuction for a mommy makeover. Abdominoplasties have been popular for many years, but in 2015 they fell to fifth place with 127,967 tummy tucks in the United States.
