There are a lot of exciting new trends in plastic surgery. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons discusses this in a recent press release on their 2016 report.
According to the press release, “New data released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) show continued growth in cosmetic procedures over the last year, and a shift in the types of procedures patients have chosen since the start of the new millennium. According to the annual plastic surgery procedural statistics, there were 15.9 million surgical and minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures performed in the United States in 2015, a 2 percent increase over 2014. Since 2000, overall procedures have risen 115 percent, but the types of procedures patients are choosing are changing. ‘While more traditional facial procedures and breast augmentations are still among the most popular, we’re seeing much more diversity in the areas of the body patients are choosing to address,’ said ASPS President David H. Song, MD, MBA, FACS. ‘Patients have more options than ever, and working closely with their surgeon, they’re able to focus on specific target areas of the body to achieve the look they desire.’”
Maxim also explores plastic surgery trends in a recent article titled “WERE THERE MORE BUTT JOBS OR BOOB JOBS IN 2015?” Thomas Freeman of Maxim writes, “In a recent report, the American Society of Plastic Surgery revealed that boob jobs remained the most common procedure in the country in 2015. A whopping 279,143 were performed last year, a 31 percent increase from 2000 (Simpler times). However, that’s also a two percent drop from 2014, meaning big, silicon boobs may be losing traction. On the opposing front, the butt is gaining serious momentum, making up the fastest growing type of cosmetic surgery in 2015. There were 14,705 buttocks augmentations from fat grafting done in 2015, 28 percent more than in 2014. 4,767 clients opted for buttocks lifts, a 36 percent increase from 2014. Likewise, 2,540 clients chose butt implants, also a 36 percent increase from 2014. In fact, the ASPS even asserted that every 30 minutes, someone was getting a butt job in America.”
