The number of plastic surgery procedures performed on a regular basis has steadily increased over the last few years. While some people undergo a procedure with their own aesthetic goals in mind, there are others who need plastic surgery in order to improve more than just their own well being.
The following are common reasons that people choose to undergo plastic surgery combined with some of the most popular procedures performed in their respected categories:
Plastic surgery was originally intended to help individuals with deformities due to traumatic accidents and natural health conditions. Popular reconstructive procedures that were performed in 2012 included scar revision (171,000) and breast reconstruction (91,000).
Reverse the Signs of Aging
Exposure to environmental factors like the sun and the everyday stresses of life, combined with an individual’s natural aging process, can cause the skin to become wrinkled and saggy. Some of the most common skin treatments include microdermabrasion (974,000) to provide a smoother appearance and facelifts (126,000) to eliminate sagging of the skin.
With the desire to look our best in the workforce and the general public, it is not uncommon for people to get plastic surgery completed for their own vanity. From Botox® injections (6.1 million) to breast augmentations (286,000) and liposuction (202,000), the list of procedures that people voluntarily undergo seems endless.
