Plastic Surgery Is Primetime among Ethnic Groups

American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reports say that plastic surgery was performed mainly on Hispanics, Blacks and Asians. //

The ethnic community opts for this surgery than any other community. It was mainly chosen to enhance their appearance or minimize the signs of aging.

Statistics show that more and more people opted for it in the year 2005 with nearly 2.3 million procedures performed. This was a whooping 65 % increase from 2004.

Hispanics continue to lead all ethnic groups with more than 921,000 cosmetic procedures followed by African Americans with 769,000 procedures and Asians with 437,000 procedures.

ASPS President Bruce Cunningham, MD said that this increase in the trend among the ethnic groups could be attributed to their greater exposure to the benefits of plastic surgery, a growing acceptance of the specialty, and increased economic power within these ethnic groups.

Hispanics comprised 9 % of the 10.2 million cosmetic plastic surgery procedures in 2005. The most commonly requested surgical cosmetic procedures for Hispanics were nose reshaping, breast augmentation, and liposuction.

African Americans (8 %) commonly request surgical procedures such as nose reshaping, breast reduction, and liposuction. Asians consist of 4 % and go in for surgical procedures such as nose reshaping, eyelid surgery, and breast augmentation.

The most commonly requested minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures for all three ethnic groups were injectable wrinkle fillers, and chemical peel.
