Top 5 Most Popular Plastic Surgery Procedures to Watch in 2019
Each year, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) provides new statistics on the most popular plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery procedures. We like to share this information with our readers so they can follow along with current trends. So in keeping with our updates in 2017 and 2018, here are the most popular plastic surgery trends to watch as we make our way through 2019.
Not surprisingly, several of the most popular plastic surgery procedures from years past continue to show high numbers. These include Breast Augmentation, Liposuction and Tummy Tuck. For minimally invasive procedures, we see rising numbers for Botox & Fillers as well as other Skin Care options like Chemical Peels.
Scroll down to see our breakdown of the most recent plastic surgery statistics!
What are the top plastic surgery procedures?
Last year saw a 1% increase in total cosmetic surgery procedures in the U.S. at around 1.8 million. The top 5 performed during 2018 were the following:
These most popular plastic surgery procedures haven’t changed from last year. It’s interesting to take away that Breast Augmentation is the number one elective cosmetic surgery performed in this country. Year after year over 300,000 women annually have this operation. It makes sense! Weight changes, hormone shifts, pregnancy and genetics all contribute to breasts that may become deflated and in turn affect our confidence and wardrobe choices.
Similarly, loose skin and stretched muscles after pregnancy are so problematic for women. So much so that all the procedures that typically make up the Mommy Makeover (Breast Augmentation, Liposuction and Tummy Tuck) are in the top 5 most popular plastic surgery procedures.
The national data reflects what we see at Tannan Plastic Surgery. More and more women are choosing to invest in themselves. I love when a woman comes in for her post-op appointment after Plastic Surgery and we do her reveal in the mirror. Those tears of joy she sees in her reflection confirm what I know – that plastic surgery can be an immensely powerful tool at helping you be the best version of you.
