Top Plastic Surgery Trends of 2013
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 2013 marked the fourth consecutive year in which the number of plastic surgery procedures performed increased. Leading this growth trend were procedures such as:
- Neck and facelift
- Buttock augmentation
- Reconstructive surgery
Leaders from previous years, including liposuction, did not see the same rapid growth. However, there were still over 200,000 liposuction procedures performed in the United States last year.
Nonsurgical Growth Trends
In addition to surgical options such as breast augmentation seeing growth in 2013, many nonsurgical treatments saw a surge in popularity. With over six million treatments performed, the leader of nonsurgical rejuvenation procedures was BOTOX® Cosmetic. Following BOTOX® Cosmetic were soft tissue fillers such as Restylane, and skin care treatments such as chemical peels.
