How Many People Get Cosmetic Surgery?
It’s no secret anymore that most of the world’s top celebrities have achieved or enhanced their good looks through cosmetic surgery as well as minimally invasice cosmetic procedures.
Kaley Cuoco, Kloe Kardashian and Anna Faris all openly admit to having had breast enhancement surgery – with all three stating that it was one of the best things they ever did for themselves. And, so many stars – including Jennifer Anniston, Tyra Banks, Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Alba, Nicki Minaj Jennifer Lawrence – owe their symetrical beauty to skillful rhinoplasty (“nose job”).
You may be thinking that cosmetic surgery is fine for these A-listers – but did you know that millions of non-celebrity, everyday people actually get cosmetic surgery every year, as well? As you will see, it’s probably a lot more common than you think!
In this article we share statistics on the number of cosmetic surgeries performed in the United States every year.
Cosmetic Surgery Statistics
Data recently released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reveals that the number of cosmetic procedures performed in the United States continues to grow every year. According to their statistics, there were 15.9 million surgical and minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures performed in the United States in the year 2015.
And since 2000, overall cosmetic procedures have risen 115 percent!
Breast augmentations, liposuction and nose jobs still top the list of most popular cosmetic surgeries. But facelifts have slipped out of the top five. We’re guessing that the reason facelifts are no longer as popular, is that many of our more minimally invasive and non-invasive cosmetic procedures (laser resurfacing, botox, facial fillers, etc.) have taken the place of full facelifts.
Can you guess what the other two “top five” plastic surgeries in the U.S. are? Keep reading to find out!
