The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) has just released data from their most recent study of cosmetic procedure trends, showing the comparative results from 2017 versus 2016.
The report shows overall growth of 2% in the total number of procedures undertaken (year-on-year). It also highlighted the rapid growth in the “minimally invasive procedure” category, which is up nearly 200% since Year 2000.
Top performers in the “Minimally Invasive” category were: Cellulite treatment, Platelet Rich Plasma and Fat Freezing.
Highest growth in the “Surgical” category were: Hair Transplantation and Breast Reduction. (Interestingly, the number of Buttock Implant procedures fell by 56%.)
The key charts within the report are a little dense and difficult to see in the online version, so we’ve taken the liberty to summarise the most significant results for both categories below:
