- Breast Augmentation
The most popular surgical procedure is, and has been, breast augmentation. The popularity of breast implants has not been contained to Hollywood, either: There were more than 350,000 breast augmentation procedures in 2008, up from a little more than 100,000 in 1997.
A close second to breast enhancement, liposuction is a popular option for getting rid of unwanted body fat. Liposuction’s popularity is in decline, however, as technological advances have brought us newer, less invasive options for fat removal.
- Eyelid Surgery
Wait, what? No, its true. Cosmetic eyelid surgery is expanding in popularity. As the thinnest skin on the human body, the eyelids are particularly affected by the stresses of facial expressions and aging, which this cosmetic surgery is intended to address.
- Nose Jobs
The classics never go out of style. Nose jobs, or rhinoplasty, have been around since the advent of cosmetic surgery, and show no signs of going away.
- Tummy Tucks
Tummy tucks address the stomach area in a way that liposuction cannot—by removing excess skin caused by weight loss or pregnancy. Over the last 10 years, tummy tucks have exploded in popularity, from a little more than 30,000 procedures in 1997 to more than 110,000 in 2008.
