Plastic Surgery continues to grow in popularity. Last year, there was a grand total of 1.7 million cosmetic surgery procedures across the United States, a 2 percent increase since 2014. Breast augmentation was most in demand with 279,143 procedures as recorded by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the premiere society of plastic surgeons, or which I am a member – and your plastic surgeon should be too!
The battle of the bulges brought liposuction into second place (222,051 procedures) while nose reshaping came in third (217,979 procedures). One of the most interesting aspects of US cosmetic surgery in 2015 regards the booming popularity of buttock implants and fat grafting. Back in 2000, surgeons conducted 1,356 of these procedures and that went up to 4,767 in 2015, a growth rate of 252 percent.
