Americans still love having plastic surgery. In 2018, there were a grand total of 1.8 million cosmetic surgery procedures in the United States, a one percent increase on 2017. Despite that increase, the number of procedures has actually declined five percent since 2000.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast augmentation procedures were the most popular last year with 313,735 recorded in total. Eyelid surgery came second with 206,529 while Liposuction was the third with 258,558 operations. Buttock augmentation with fat grafting was the procedure that saw the highest growth levels between 2017 and 2018, going up 19 percent.
