NEW YORK, Feb. 25 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Nearly 11.7 million cosmetic surgical and nonsurgical procedures were performed in the United States in 2007, according to statistics released today by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

The most frequently performed procedure was Botox injections and the most popular surgical procedure was liposuction.
