Cosmetic Surgery Numbers are Growing
Cosmetic surgery is a growing field and involves enhancement or recontouring of the face and body, as well a wide variety of skin treatments. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) gives these surgical procedures as the top five for 2006:
Breast augmentation (329,000) implants to enlarge the breasts
Rhinoplasty (307,000) recontouring of the nose
Liposuction (303,000) removal of fat from selected body areas
Eyelid surgery (233,000) removal of excess fat, skin and muscle to restore youthfulness to the eyes
Tummy Tuck (146,000) removal of excess fat and skin from the abdomen and tightening of the abdominal muscles
Skin improvement treatments are always being developed, such as various chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and laser skin resurfacing. Injectable fillers are very popular, such as Restylane, Sculptra and Radiesse. Botox injections are often given to smooth out frown lines and forehead creases. These are all non-invasive procedures, as opposed to invasive (surgical) procedures, and modern cosmetic surgeons offer them all the time.
