Every year, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons releases statistics about the plastic surgery industry. Last month, it released statistics for 2012. In 2012, plastic surgery saw gains, as did the auto, retail and home sales industries.

In 2012, 14.6 million cosmetic plastic surgery procedures were performed, up 5 percent from 2011. The statistics also show that non-surgical procedures continue to grow steadily, a trend that has persisted for the last three years. Surgical procedures mostly remain steady.

The growth in plastic surgery in 2012 was mostly in the areas of facial rejuvenation and minimally invasive treatments. Facial rejuvenation procedures that saw significant increases last year included:

  • Facelifts
  • Eyelid surgery
  • BOTOX and Dysport
  • Facial fillers

Facelifts increased 6 percent and eyelid surgery 4 percent.

The signs of aging on your face are unfortunately obvious and apparent. It seems more people are considering their plastic surgery and minimally invasive options for restoring a more youthful, refreshed facial appearance.

If you live in or around Dallas or Forth Worth and are interested in plastic surgery, please contact the Cosmetic Surgical Center to schedule a consultation with experienced plastic surgeon Dr. Vasdev Rai.
