The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) has just released its annual plastic surgery trends report. This report compiles numbers from procedures performed by board-certified plastic surgeons, even those who are not members of the ASPS. It does not include numbers from so called “cosmetic surgeons” or those operating without proper certification.
According to the ASPS, the top five plastic surgery procedures performed in 2015 were:
- Breast augmentation (279,143 procedures performed)
- Liposuction (222,051 procedures performed)
- Rhinoplasty (217,979 procedures performed)
- Eyelid surgery (203,934 procedures performed)
- Tummy tuck surgery (127,967proceedures performed)
For the first time since 2000, facelift did not make the top five. In 2015 it was edged by tummy tuck surgery which saw a 9% increase from 2014 and an impressive 104% increase from 2000.
Scottsdale plastic surgeon Dr. John Corey is a member of the ASPS and is proud to have our patients included in these numbers. If you are considering a surgical or nonsurgical cosmetic procedure in Arizona, Dr. Corey welcomes an opportunity to meet with you, discuss your needs, cover your options, and help you choose the treatments that can help you reach your goals.
