Last year over 10 Million surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures were performed in 2008. Of those having things done, women made up 92% and men 8%. But even Plastic Surgery was affected by our economy as we saw about a 15% decrease in the number of procedures performed in 2007.
Overall, the top five most common surgical procedures nationally and here in the Louisville Plastic Surgery community were 1) Breast Augmentation 2) Liposuction 3) Eyelid Surgery 4) Rhinoplasty and 5) Tummy Tuck
The top 5 non-surgical procedures were 1) Botox Injections 2) Laser Hair Removal
3) Hyaluronic Acid Wrinkle Filler Injections 4) Chemical Peel and 5) Laser Skin Resurfacing
The five most common procedures for Women were 1) Breast Augmentation
2) Liposuction 3) Eyelid Surgery 4) Tummy Tuck and 5) Breast Reduction
The five most common procedures for Men were 1) Liposuction
2) Rhinoplasty 3) Eyelid Surgery 4) Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia Treatment) and
5) Hair Transplantation
People aged 35 to 50 had most of the procedures. Most of the procedures (53%) were done in the office.
