Test Your Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Knowledge

The year 2015 saw one of the most rapid rises in the number of Americans having cosmetic procedures. You might have been one of them, and you may have had one of the most popular procedures of the year. But do you know which ones made the top five list? Keep reading to see.
Nearly $14 billion spent on procedures last year
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, this is the highest amount ever spent since 1997, the year this data began being recorded. The billions reflect the 12.8 million surgical and minimally invasive procedures performed in 2015, up 20% from 2014. Surgical procedures grew 7%, but perhaps no surprise to many of us, nonsurgical procedures (like Botox injections) grew over three time more than that, with a 22% increase.
Buttock implants are the fastest growing type of cosmetic surgery
In the year 2000, the procedure was so rare that it wasn’t even tracked. In 2015, however, there were 20,713. (Another procedure that went from obscure to hot is fat grafting. It made its first appearance in 2015 as the ninth most popular surgical procedure but is likely to explode in popularity going forward.
Liposuction is the most common cosmetic procedure
Performed nearly 400,000 times last year, the procedure was up 16% from 2015 – and a whopping 124% from 1997.
Top nonsurgical procedures
1.) Botox (ranked as the top nonsurgical procedure since 2000)
2.) Collagen and other fillers came in second
3.) Chemical peels
4.) Laser hair removal
5.) Microdermabrasion
Women still have more cosmetic surgery than men, but…
Women account for 90.5% of total procedures, and that stat has exploded 538% since 1997. But men are getting in there, with their number of procedures also blowing up over 500% since 1997.
