Cosmetic procedures globally
There are both surgical and non-surgical options for cosmetic procedures. Surgical procedures include augmentation mammaplasty (breast augmentation), mastopexy, lipoplasty, and rhinoplasty, to name a few. Minimally invasive, non-surgical procedures can include botulinum toxin (Botox), chemical peels, dermal fillers, and tattoo removal. The top surgical cosmetic procedure globally in 2021 was liposuction, followed by breast augmentation. During that same year, the top non-surgical cosmetic procedure was botulinum toxin (Botox), followed by hyaluronic acid (dermal fillers).
Cosmetic procedure costs in the U.S.
Cosmetic procedures have varying prices and depend entirely on the invasiveness of the procedures. In 2021, total expenditure on surgical cosmetic procedures was over twice that of non-surgical procedures. Among all surgical procedures, face lifts had the highest average costs in 2021. Furthermore, among non-surgical procedures, fat reduction had the highest average cost in the U.S.
