The Most Popular Plastic Surgeries

Here are the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures.


According to statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, liposuction is the most popular cosmetic procedure.  This is a process that permanently removes fat cells from the body.  A typical liposuction procedure allows the patient to lose between two and five pounds of weight.  These results may seem small, but they can make a big difference.  This is because the primary purpose of liposuction is to treat stubborn fat deposits that have been difficult for patients to get rid of with diet and exercise.  Once these results are finally achieved, the patient’s sense of relief can be life-changing.

      Breast augmentation

Breast augmentation has always been popular and it doesn’t look like they are going away anytime soon.  Many women find that their self-confidence improves significantly after the appearance of their breasts has improved.  The women reported feeling a sense of “new confidence” after the procedure.  The process is particularly popular in the western United States, which is understandable given the climatic and cultural differences on this side of the coast.  Many women enjoy having fun in bathing suits at the beach, and breast augmentation gives women more confidence to do so.


Rhinoplasty, or rhinoplasty, began to gain popularity in the United States in the late 1700s, but as humans, we have been fascinated by the shape and size of other people’s noses for centuries.  Interestingly, historians have found that people make assumptions about other people’s characters based on the appearance of their noses.  For these reasons, it should come as no surprise that rhinoplasty has grown in popularity over time, making it one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries today.

Eyelid correction is done for cosmetic and medical purposes.  Eyelid surgery may be medically necessary to cover prosthetic difficulties in the eye socket, to repair defects caused by trauma or tumor removal surgery, or to correct an eyelid that has turned in and out.  In general, eyelid surgery can help patients achieve a fuller field of vision.  For aesthetic reasons, the main reason a patient would have eyelid surgery would be to make them appear smaller.  Eyelid surgery can also enlarge your eyes by removing tissue from the corners of your eyes and excess skin.

      Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck, commonly known as tummy tuck, is a procedure in which we remove excess fat and skin and restore the separated muscles.  The connective tissue of the abdomen is also usually tight.  Tummy tucks are especially popular after pregnancy and weight loss.  Patients come to tummy tucks for their ability to provide immediate results.  Although you may not see results the same day after surgery, a thinning midsection will become apparent after healing, which usually takes about six weeks.  Patients also love tummy tucks for their ability to tighten the abdominal muscles and help with posture.

      Breast Reduction

While some women desire larger breasts and may opt for breast augmentation for this reason, other women desire the opposite.  As a general trend, patients are beginning to realize that cosmetic surgery can have health benefits that go beyond cosmetics, and the increase in breast reduction surgery proves this.  Breast reduction surgery can help women who have large breasts and want to treat problems such as chronic back, neck and shoulder pain.  Breast reduction procedures can help women reduce their preferred cup size and help them feel more comfortable in their own skin.
