The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) has released an initial report of their annual statistics. According to the ASPS, the most performed procedures are on the face and most procedures involve fat reduction.
Breast augmentation remains popular among patients being the highest number of procedure performed in 2016. Labiaplasty, on the other hand, is gaining traction in the plastic surgery scene.
In the side of the non-surgical treatments, Botox remains number one (7,056,255 procedures for 2016; a 4% increase from 2015) and numbers will probably continue to rise in the future. The other mostly performed non-surgical procedures are dermal fillers, chemical peel, laser hair removal, and microdermabrasion. The total for the top 5 non-surgical is 12,902,372, accounting for 84% of total non-surgical cosmetic procedures.
It also reports the new trends in non-surgical procedures focusing on fat reduction techniques like injecting and freezing fat. It is expected that fat reduction trends will continue to boost in the coming years.
The cosmetic non-surgical side still has a higher number compared to plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures, considering these are easily administered treatments. A possible contributing factor to the rise of Botox related procedures is that men are also undergoing the treatment, and have raised the statistics. Many predict that fillers will become a steady popular procedure and there could be a growth in Platelet Rich Plasma procedures.
