More Women are Getting Breast Lifts

Lifts Lead the List

It used to be that the term plastic surgery was nearly synonymous with facelifts, and while they remain a popular option among patients, other types of lifts are surging.

Since 2000, ASPS statistics show considerable growth in:

  • Breast lifts, up 89 percent (99,614 in 2015, up from 52,836 in 2000)
  • Buttock lifts, up 252 percent (4,767 in 2015, up from 1,356 in 2000)
  • Lower body lifts, up 3,973 percent (8,431 in 2015, up from 207 in 2000)
  • Upper arm lifts, up 4,959 percent (17,099 in 2015, up from 338 in 2000)

Top 5 Cosmetic Surgical and Minimally-Invasive Procedures

While procedures like upper arm lifts and lower body lifts have shown substantial growth, for the first time since at least 2000, facelifts slipped out of the top 5 most-performed procedures last year, giving way to tummy tucks.

Of the 1.7 million cosmetic surgical procedures performed in 2015, the top 5 were:

  1. Breast augmentation (279,143 procedures, down 2 percent from 2014, up 31 percent from 2000)
  2. Liposuction (222,051 procedures, up 5% from 2014 but down 37 percent from 2000)
  3. Nose reshaping (217,979 procedures, unchanged from 2014, down 44 percent since 2000)
  4. Eyelid surgery (203,934 procedures, down 1 percent from 2014, down 38 percent since 2000)
  5. Tummy tuck (127,967 procedures, up 9 percent from 2014 and 104 percent since 2000)
