New statistics are in - the list may surprise you...

American Society of Plastic Surgeons published 2008 statistic on plastic surgery procedures. Here it is:
1. Botox (over 4.6 mln served! with no or minimal side effects)
2. Removal of skin moles and lumps
3. Filler injections
4. Chemical peels
5. Laser hair removal (it is popular in both man and women)
6. Microdermabrasion
7. Breast augmentation (over 700 000 larger breasts in the USA this year alone)
8. Liposuction
9. Repair of cuts
10. Nose reshaping (rhinoplasty - over 280k procedures)

This list pretty much follows what I observe in my practice. Non-invasive treatments are on the rise because they are safer and more predictable. At the same time surgeries like breast enhancement went up 64% over last six years. Nose job remains to be very popular procedure although as compared to breast implants this number is split between man and women :-)
