Top surgical cosmetic procedures

Lipoplasty or liposuction was one of the most common procedures conducted in the United States in 2018, with 289,261 procedures that year. Among women, breast augmentations are among the most common surgical procedures, totaling some 329,914 procedures in 2018. There were around 4.8 million cosmetic procedures conducted in 2018, with 3.32 million nonsurgical procedures and 1.53 million surgical procedures. In 2018, the country collectively spent around 8.38 billion U.S. dollars on these cosmetic procedures.

Among nonsurgical procedures, Botoulinum Toxin Type A (Botox or Dysport) is one of the most commonly known procedures. Consumers spent over 560 million U.S. dollars on this procedure in 2018. Consumers in the country have been actively researching and conducting online research on cosmetic surgery. This could indicate the increased care for appearance and disposable income enabling consumers to spend money on these procedures. Among nonsurgical cosmetic procedures, photorejuvenation procedures satisfied 100 percent of patients. Among dermatologic procedures in the U.S., skin cancer treatments are the most common, totaling some 3.5 million cases. The United States has one of the highest numbers of cosmetic procedures performed in the world.
