While men are an up-and-coming demographic in the world of cosmetic surgery, it is a fact that women are more likely to head to the plastic surgeon’s office to discuss possible improvement options. According to research and data from ASAPS, women make up about 90 percent of all plastic surgery patients. Women tend to place more value on their appearance, and there is more pressure for women to stay looking young and beautiful even as they age. The following procedures were the most popular cosmetic surgeries for women in 2012.
Top 5 Cosmetic Procedures for Women 2012
Breast augmentation — For women, their breasts are a huge part of their identity. This is why the breast augmentation surgery has long been the most popular cosmetic procedure for women. In 2012, more than 330,000 breast augmentation procedures were performed across the country. Some women choose to have this procedure done while they are young as it helps them to feel better about themselves and improve their confidence. Others choose to have it after years of breastfeeding and pregnancy have taken their toll. Others simply choose to have it performed so they can have what nature did not decide to give them.
Liposuction — Liposuction is a popular procedure, largely because it is fairly straightforward, and it has a tremendous impact. This surgery allows the surgeon to, quickly and easily, remove unwanted fat from problem areas on the body. For women, liposuction is most often performed on the abdomen, buttocks, thighs and neck.
Abdominoplasty — This is commonly referred to as a tummy tuck and is a popular procedure for women who are in their middle ages. After pregnancy, it can be difficult to achieve that tight abdominal look. A tummy tuck removes excess skin and unwanted fat, providing women with the abdominal area they have always dreamed about having. They can finally break out the bikini again.
Blepharoplasty — Blepharoplasty is the medical term for the eyelid surgery which involves removing excess skin around the eyelid, and can allow the surgeon to take years off of a woman’s face. In addition to looking younger, she will also appear to have more energy.
Breast Lift — A breast lift is also a popular procedure for women. In 2012, more than 127,000 breast lifts were performed by cosmetic surgeons across the country. This surgery provides women with the perkiness that they had in their youth, allowing them to feel confident and proud of their breasts.
The number of women that have had cosmetic surgery work done has increased by about 252 percent since 1997. There are many reasons that this number has gone up.
