Over 15 million Americans had cosmetic procedures done in 2013. But, what exactly does that mean? What kind of procedures are we talking about? The American Society of Plastic Surgeons recently released a more detailed analysis of these numbers. And, now we feel like we have a better understanding of the trends in this country.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, breast augmentation is the most popular procedure. Plastic surgeons performed this particular operation 290,000 times in 2013. That's 580,000 breasts that are now bigger. Following somewhat close behind is nose reshaping (221,000) and eyelid surgery (216,000). And, in the spirit of trend forecasting, it looks like buttock augmentation and neck lifts are on the rise.
