Cosmetic procedures were up 5% in 2010. This marked the first increase in years. Interestingly, it’s not just women that have led to this increase. Men have been having more cosmetic procedures as well. Overall, the top cosmetic procedures continue to be Botox, Dysport, and dermal fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Prevelle Silk). These non-surgical procedures were up 14% in 2010. Alike, the increase in surgical procedures has risen as well. Breast Augmentation continues to top the list of all cosmetic surgeries, followed by nose reshaping, eyelid rejuvenation, liposuction and tummy tucks. Breast Augmentation accounted for 296,000 procedures in 2010. Blepharoplasy, or eyelid rejuvenation, came in at third, with 209,000 cases. The increase in men undergoing blepharoplasty was 15%. While facelift was not listed in the top 5, there was 9% more facelift procedures performed in 2010 over 2009. In men, facelifts increased by an astounding 14%. Botox topped the list of minimally invasive procedures, with over 2.4 million procedures. This was followed by dermal fillers, chemical peels, and laser hair removal.
As the economy continues to improve, we will see more people willing to undergo cosmetic procedures to help improve on their appearance. While women still make up 90% of all cosmetic procedures, men are starting to come around. As the baby boomers are reaching retirement, men and women alike are reaching out for cosmetic procedures by surgical and non-surgical means.
