Breast Implants Still Gaining Popularity in the United States

Statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reveal that for the first time, breast implants have surpassed liposuction in popularity.

The figures indicate that 355,671 breast augmentation surgeries were performed last year, compared to 341,144 liposuction procedures.

In a press release, ASPS President Alan Gold, MD comments that “for the first time in the twelve years these statistics have been collected, liposuction is a runner up in popularity to breast augmentation.”

Dr. Gold theorizes that “changes in fashion, i.e. décolletage baring styles, might be a factor behind this change.”

Of the 10.2 million cosmetic procedures undergone in America in 2008, 92 percent were had by women.

Last year’s top 5 surgical procedures are as follows:


  1. Breast Augmentation

  2. Liposuction

  3. Eyelid Surgery

  4. Rhinoplasty

  5. Abdominoplasty


Last year’s top five non-surgical procedures include:


  1. Botox

  2. Laser Hair Removal

  3. Hyaluronic acid wrinkle fillers (Juvederm, Restylane)

  4. Chemical Peel

  5. Laser Skin Resurfacing
