American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery's Annual

Survey Shows Self Improvement Stronger than Ever in Men and Women

NEW YORK, March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Men and women across the States continue to turn back the hands of time with invasive and non-invasive cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. The annual member survey, conducted by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), unveiled a 27 percent increase in surgical and non-surgical activity among men and women since 2000. Men account for 30 percent of the increase while women take credit for 26 percent.

"Our statistics illustrate that facial plastic and reconstructive surgery is not characterized by race, gender, or age," said AAFPRS President Vito Quatela, MD. "Nineteen percent of cosmetic procedures were performed on non-Caucasian patients."

Popularity of Procedures by Ethnicity

Over the past 8 years, African American (40 percent), Hispanic (19 percent), and Caucasian (7 percent) cosmetic surgical patients increased. The proportion of Asian American cosmetic surgical patients is down slightly since 2000 (negative 8 percent). In the past year, there has been little change among Caucasian and African American cosmetic surgical patients.

Considering four popular cosmetic surgery procedures, AAFPRS members reported that African Americans are most likely to under go rhinoplasty or nose job surgery (63 percent) as are Hispanics (45 percent). Asian Americans are most likely receiving blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery (39 percent) while Caucasians are more evenly split between rhinoplasty (27 percent), blepharoplasty (24 percent) and face lifts (26 percent).

Once the secret of the elite, cosmetic surgery has now filtered down to the masses. For many minorities, cosmetic surgery is no longer viewed as a sign of self-hatred or a rejection of racial identity. It is about enhancing natural beauty.
