2014 Cosmetics Plastic Surgery Statistics

Curious about cosmetic plastic surgery in numbers? Midwest Breast & Aesthetic Surgery sifted through a year’s worth of data and analyses to give patients or potential patients a comprehensive look at people’s cosmetic choices for 2014.

We listed down the top surgical and minimally-invasive procedures and went one step further by indicating corresponding increases and decreases in demand for each. Overall, there’s been a general decrease in top surgical procedures matched by a majority increase in minimally-invasive ones.

Liposuction remains a favorite among patients, reflected by a 5% increase – the highest among cosmetic surgery types. Chemical peels, on the other hand, manifested a 7% increase – topping botulinum toxin type A’s (popularly called Botox) increase by a percent.

Of course, plastic surgery also has its reconstructive side, which registered 5.7 million procedures last year alone. The total number of the top 5 cosmetic surgeries done in the same period – 1.6 million – pale in comparison. But minimally-invasive procedures overwhelm both with 13.9 million in total from its own list of patients’ favorites.
