Cosmetic surgeries as well as noninvasive and minimally-invasive procedures are incredibly popular throughout the United States these days. The most recent statistics released were for the 2017 year, and these numbers showed that Americans are more excited than ever to change or improve their faces and bodies. In fact, for surgeries and minimally-invasive procedures alone, Americans spent over $16 billion. As you can see, these procedures are no longer simply for the rich and famous celebrities but are instead available for and popular with average American citizens as well.
The Most Popular Cosmetic Procedures
For surgeries, Americans most favored breast augmentations, liposuctions, nose reshaping, eyelid surgeries, and tummy tucks. Botox remains as the most popular minimally-invasive procedure followed by dermal fillers, chemical peels, laser hair removal, and microdermabrasion. It is no secret that millions of Americans want to look good, and one easy and safe way to do that is with these procedures that often work far better than topical treatments and lifestyle changes do.
Keep in mind that because cosmetic surgery is so popular, you can find questionable practitioners offering a variety of minimally-invasive and even surgical techniques nearly anywhere you go. Even day spas now offer a variety of treatments apparently designed to help you look better. However, by choosing a practitioner who is not an expert in that treatment or who do not have the training and experience necessary to be an expert in the field, you are putting your own body at risk and may possibly end up with poor or incomplete results.
