2013 Plastic Surgery Stats

Our 2013 Annual Statistics were released over the wires this morning at 9:00 AM Eastern. Our numbers this year have both good news for plastic surgeons and several news angles that should resonate with the media. Among them are:

  • There was a 6.5% increase in the total number of surgical procedures performed last year as compared to 2012. Almost 2 million procedures were performed among the core group last year
  • Americans spent $12 billion on cosmetic procedures for the first time since 2008 when the recession hit

Of that total, more than 7 billion was spent on surgical procedures and more than 5 billion was spent on nonsurgical procedures

  • Lipo was the number one procedure, increasing 16% over 2012. This is in spite of the burgeoning growth of technologies such as CoolSculpting
  • As previously stated, Buttock augmentation has increased 58% over last year and Labiaplasty increased 44% over last year
  • Injectables are way up this year:
    • Botulinum toxin, (Botox, Dysport and Xeomin): 3,381,476 in 2013 – up from 2,915,865 in 2012 – a 16% increase
    • Hyaluronic acid: 1,738,999 for 2013 – up from 1,318,197 in 2012 – a 32% increase
  • Aesthetic plastic surgery for men is being de-stigmatized
    • Liposuction is up for men by 24% since last year alone
    • Injectables for men are up 16%
    • Men broke the million mark for number of procedures performed first time since 2007
