Liposuction No Longer the Most Popular Surgical Procedure According to New Statistics
Date:3/16/2009

American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Reports 10.2 Million Cosmetic Procedures in 2008

NEW YORK, March 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Over 10.2 million cosmetic surgical and nonsurgical procedures were performed in the United States in 2008, according to statistics released today by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. The Aesthetic Society, after collecting multi-specialty procedural statistics since 1997, says the overall number of cosmetic procedures has increased 162 percent since the collection of the statistics first began. The most frequently performed nonsurgical procedure was Botox injections and the most popular surgical procedure was breast augmentation.

"For the first time in the twelve years these statistics have been collected, liposuction is a runner up in popularity to breast augmentation. There is no doubt that this turnabout will generate discussions in the medical community and the public at large," Alan Gold, MD, Aesthetic Society president, reflected. "Changes in fashion, i.e. decolletage baring styles, might be a factor behind this change."
