Cosmetic Plastic Surgeries on the Rise

Nips, Tucks, Lifts, and Other Cosmetic Procedures Up as U.S. Economy Improves

Body Contouring on the Rise continued...

The ASPS says breast reconstruction rose 8% in 2010 and replaces maxillofacial surgery in the top five reconstructive procedures.

“It’s been a major goal of the ASPS to increase women’s awareness of their breast reconstruction options, so much so that in 2009 the ASPS started a breast reconstruction public education campaign,” Haeck says. “It’s great that we can report that this procedure is now among the top five reconstructive procedures.”

Other findings in the group’s 2010 report:

  • Breast implant removals rose to 21,714 in 2010 from 19,857 in 2009
  • Botox procedures rose to 5.4 million from 4.8 million in 2009
  • Breast reductions rose to 83,241 from 78,298 in 2009
