31 Aug Breast Augmentation Most Popular Procedure of 2018
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) called 2018 the “Year of the Body,” and at John Park MD Plastic Surgery, we have to agree. There were over 17.7 million cosmetic procedures that took place in the U.S. in 2018 alone, which is about 25 percent more than in 2017. This includes all types of procedures, but breast augmentation was the most popular.
What Makes Breast Augmentation So Popular?
Cosmetic surgeries, in general, have become more popular in recent years. Both the products and techniques have been perfected, so patients can rest easy knowing they’ll have beautiful, natural-looking results. The ASPS says that there has been a big “rise in new trends in body-shaping procedures, with a spike in non-invasive fat reduction, as well as surgeries such as breast augmentations and liposuction.” All of these procedures are performed by Dr. John Park, and if you’re interested in the most popular procedure of all, it’s time to make 2019 the year of your body.
Last year, there were a total of 313,735 breast augmentation procedures performed in the U.S. That’s a four percent increase from 2017. Breast augmentation includes the placement of breast implants to increase the size of the breasts and beautify the profile. A breast lift, or removal of excess breast tissue, may also be recommended in tandem with breast implants.
Most breast implants are made with silicone or saline, and you can learn more about which implants might be best for you and your goals during a personalized consultation. Summertime is the perfect season to opt for your breast augmentation procedure, as major recovery occurs in just two weeks and by six weeks you can fully return to normal activities. That means you can still show off your new summer body and be fully recovered by the time pumpkin spice season rolls around.
