The latest report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons confirms what we see in our office - an increase in people choosing minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. These types of procedures, like Botox, fillers and chemical peels, are up by almost 200% in this decade. We find that our patients like these procedures because the downtime is minimal or non-existent, and they still get great results.
Requests for surgical procedures are on the rise too, up 2% from 2016-2017. Breast augmentation, liposuction and rhinoplasty (nose surgery) top the list.
According to this article in USA Today, here are the top five cosmetic surgery procedures, and minimally invasive procedures in 2017.
