Going Under the Knife for Cosmetic Surgery

Posted on Updated on


Plastic surgery is big business in the US – and the latest figures show that despite the recession, that business is booming.
Americans had nearly 14m cosmetic procedures last year, spending $10.1bn in the process – on collagen and botox injections, breast implants, buttock lifts and nose jobs. The big rise was in chin lifts – or Mentoplasty, which is up 71% on 2010, with 20,680 procedures over the year.
These figures, from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, give us a real insight into an industry which is still a lot smaller in the UK.
The Association has also given us overall figures going right back to 2000.
The total numbers are up 5% on the year before – and an 87% increase on the year 2000. The vast majority of those procedures are defined as “minimally invasive” – some 13.8m of them, in fact.
