Newly-released statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons confirms what Board-Certified Knoxville Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kleto has long known about his own plastic surgery practice: Non-surgical procedures such as BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments are far more popular in Knoxville and nationwide than all of the common cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures combined.
According to industry experts, there were 1.7 million cosmetic surgical procedures performed in 2015. The five most popular procedures in this category were:
- Breast Augmentation
- Eyelid Surgery
- Tummy Tuck
While they weren’t the most popular or common, plastic surgery industry statistics also indicate that breast lifts, lower body lifts, and upper arm lifts also are experiencing a surge in popularity.
Breast lifts are especially noteworthy because that procedure saw an 89 percent increase between 2000 and 2015.
But by far, the single most common reason that people visit their cosmetic or plastic surgeon is for BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. There were 6.7 million BOTOX® treatments performed last year, according to the ASPS.
Every medical procedure has its pros and cons. Just because one is popular in Knoxville doesn’t mean that it’s right for you.
