Plastic Surgery Statistics 2010 - Who's Getting What?
In a report released from Annual Survey of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, in 2010, women were responsible for 83 percent of all surgical and non-surgical procedures.
For women under the age of 35, Botox was the most common non-surgical procedure, hyaluronic acid injections were runner up and microdermabrasion and chemical peels came in last.
Of all surgical procedures, facelifts, rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty, and ablative skin resurfacing were the most popular among women.
Between ages of 22 and 34, the most common procedure was rhinoplasty. Eighty-four percent of all rhinoplasty procedures were performed on this age group.
Do not let the men fool ya! Males are most commonly associated with hair transplants. However – in the last year, the amount of men receiving Botox, hyaluronic acid injections and rhinoplasty procedures has gone up.
