Plastic Surgery & Cosmetic Surgery Trends For 2008

The ASAPS (American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery) reports 10.2 Million Cosmetic Procedures in 2008. The Aesthetic Society, after collecting multi-specialty procedural statistics since 1997, says the overall number of cosmetic procedures has increased 162 percent since the collection of the statistics first began. The most frequently performed nonsurgical procedure was Botox injections and the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure was breast augmentation.

Top nonsurgical cosmetic procedures among men and women in 2008:
Botox - 2,464,123
Laser Hair Removal - 1,280,964
Hyaluronic Acid (including Hylaform, Juvederm, Perlane/Restylane) - 1,262,848
Chemical Peel - 591,808
Laser Skin Resurfacing - 570,880

Top surgical cosmetic procedures among men and women in 2008:
Breast Augmentation: - 355,671
Lipoplasty (liposuction) - 341,144
Eyelid Surgery - 195,104
Rhinoplasty - 152,434
Abdominoplasty - 147,392

“For the first time in the twelve years these statistics have been collected liposuction is a runner up in popularity to breast augmentation. There is no doubt that this turnabout will generate discussions in the medical community and the public at large,” Alan Gold, MD, Aesthetic Society president, reflects that “changes in fashion, i.e. décolletage baring styles, might be a factor behind this change.”
