A new study released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons shows that since 2000, breast implants and breast lifts have increased 39 percent and 70 percent respectively, while nose jobs, liposuction, face-lifts, and eyelid surgeries have all decreased markedly.
So are women suddenly more unhappy with their boobs than their faces? Not really: One reason for the waning popularity of some procedures is that they’ve been replaced by less invasive measures like Botox and wrinkle fillers; breasts, on the other hand, cannot be plumped with injections (yet). The most likely people to get cosmetic surgery are women (91 percent) who are between the ages of 40 and 54 (about 50 percent) and Caucasian (70 percent).
Here’s the full breakdown of plastic surgery statistics from the study, which charts procedures’ popularity in 2010 versus 2000:
Increasing non-invasive treatments:
Botox injections: up 584%
Wrinkle fillers: up 172%
Laser hair removal: up 27%
Breast implants: up 39%
Breast lifts: up 70%
Liposuction: down 43%
Nose jobs: down 35%
Eyelid surgery: down 36%
Face-lifts: down 16%
Breast reduction: down 2%
Removal of breast implants: down 47%
