Date:3/16/2009

attitude toward cosmetic surgery in the past five years; although 20 percent said their attitude was 'more favorable' and 7 percent that said their attitude was 'less favorable' than it was five years ago.
  • Out of all age groups, men and women between the ages of 25 and 34 are the most likely to consider plastic surgery for themselves now or in the future.
  • Men and women age 18 to 24, at 65 percent, are the most likely to approve of cosmetic surgery, while those age 55-64, at only 49 percent, are the least likely to show approval.
  • Ethnicity has little effect as to whether respondents would be embarrassed if people outside their immediate family and close friends knew they had cosmetic surgery. Exactly the same percentage (71%) of white respondents and nonwhite respondents said they would not be embarrassed.
  • According to 2008 ASAPS Cosmetic Surgery Statistics, last year women had more than 9.3 million cosmetic procedures (92 percent of total), and men had over 800,000 procedures (8 percent of total). Overall, the number of surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures decreased 12 percent from 2007.
