2011 ASPS Plastic Surgery Statistics

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons released a press release and report of the number of cosmetic procedures performed by ASPS surgeons in 2011; according to the report, the number of cosmetic plastic surgery procedures increased by 2 percent when compared to numbers from 2010.

In the tables featured in this blog post, we track the popularity of this year’s 10 most popular plastic surgery procedures over a 12-year period. Some interesting trends to point out:

  • Although the number of procedures performed this year has increased since the low point in 2009, this year’s numbers still far well below the highs that were achieved from 2000 to 2007.
  • The popularity of nose reshaping and forehead lift procedures has steadily decreased since 2000.
  • The number of breast lift and tummy tuck procedures that have been performed since 2000 has significantly increased.
