The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) has come out with the 2011 statistics for plastic surgery.
Overall, cosmetic surgical procedures increased by 1% since 2010. The most common procedure was liposuction. The top five surgical procedures in 2011 were:
- Breast Augmentation (silicone gel implants used more than saline implants!)
- Abdominoplasty, aka tummy tuck
- Blepharoplasty, aka eyelid surgery
- Mastopexy, aka breast lift
