Don't Quit Your Day Job To Build A Buttock Practice

Study Show That 'Fringe' Plastic Surgery Procedures Not Too Popular.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) lists four operations getting lots of media attention but garnering few patients. Here are those procedures and how many times they were done in the U.S. in 2005:

  • Vaginal "rejuvenation" (tightening vaginal muscles or changing the vagina's appearance): 793
  • Buttock implants: 542
  • Calf augmentation: 337
  • Pectoral implants: 206

America's leading cosmetic plastic surgery in 2005 was liposuction, which was done more than 323,000 times. Rhinoplasty (nose reshaping) was in second place with more than 298,000 procedures. Breast augmentation, in third place, was done more than 291,000 times in 2005, according to the ASPS.
