Of the more than 14.6 million cosmetic surgery procedures performed in 2012, plastic surgeons have seen the largest increase (5%) in minimally facial rejuvenation treatments. This is due to several factors, including the decreased cost of the treatments, minimal risk and recovery time, and almost instant results.
More and more patients are also opting for wrinkle reduction and collagen enhancing treatments to produce a fresher, more youthful appearance. Patients are highly satisfied with results that are almost instantaneous and often times perceived as a more natural option over traditionally invasive cosmetic surgeries.
However, patients haven’t left surgical procedures completely to the wayside. Plastic surgeons have seen a 4% increase in eye lid lifts, a 6% increase in facelifts, and a steady amount of nose jobs. Breast augmentation and liposuction each saw slight decreases, but are still among the most popular cosmetic surgeries nationwide. New techniques have made recoveries easier, with phenomenal results that have made patients very happy. However, breast reductions for both men and women rose 8% as more insurance companies are recognizing the medical need in most patients.
