Top 5 Plastic Surgery Procedures in America

Plastic surgery remains a growing industry in America. Not only do plastic surgeons’ offices across the country stay busy, it’s also borne out by the statistics: The American Society of Plastic Surgeons says 18 million cosmetic procedures were performed in 2019. About 16 million of those procedures were minimally invasive, an increase of 2 percent from the previous year. Cosmetic surgical procedures remained about the same as the previous year.

The Top 5 cosmetic surgeries last year were:

  1. Breast augmentation: 299,715 procedures
  2. Liposuction: 265,209 procedures
  3. Eyelid surgery: 211,005 procedures
  4. Nose reshaping: 207,284 procedures
  5. Facelift: 123,685 procedures

Breast augmentation ranks as the top surgery year after year, for multiple years running. All of these surgeries are tailored to your body and your goals by Dr. Zinsser. One of the great things about surgical rejuvenation is the long-lasting nature of the results, which can last a decade or longer (or even a lifetime) without the need for revisions.

The Top 5 minimally invasive cosmetic treatments were:

  1. BOTOX® Cosmetic: 7.7 million procedures
  2. Soft tissue fillers: 2.7 million procedures
  3. Chemical peels: 1.3 million procedures
  4. Laser hair removal: 1 million procedures
  5. IPL treatment: 685,755 procedures

Americans prize non-surgical treatments for their minimal upfront investment, minimal downtime, non-invasiveness and fast results. Although the results tend to be less significant and lasting than surgery, they serve an important purpose and are chosen by many of our patients.
