ASAPS Statistics for 2014: Male Procedures 43% up in only 5 years
A few days ago we had a detailed report on the statistics of ASPS regarding the number of cosmetic procedures that took place in 2014 (click here to read it)! Now ASAPS comes to reveal their own statistics regarding the procedures that took place during the previous year! It’s the 18th consecutive year that ASAPS publishes such stats based on questionnaire send to 23000 board certified physicians!
Which procedures showed the highest increase during 2014? Buttock augmentation (86%) followed by labiaplasty (49%) and non surgical fat reduction (42%). It’s also quite impressive to underline that over a period of 5 years we had an impressive 43% increase in demand for male procedures and 273% increase since 1997! James Grotting, MD, President-Elect of ASAPS states: “This is not a trend we expect to see wane anytime soon. Facing a challenging and sometimes ageist job market, men, like women, are starting to consider their options to maintain a youthful appearance that exudes exuberance and energy and the full spectrum of care offered by board-certified plastic surgeons caters to their individual needs,”
First things first, let’s have a look at the top surgical procedures that took place during 2014! Liposuction is the real leader (while ASPS was claiming that Breast Augmentation was the no1) followed by Breast Augmentation and Eyelid Surgery! Here is the top 5 according to the ASAPS Stats:
As for the non surgical procedures the real king is Botulinum Toxin, followed by hyaluronic acid and hair removal! Let’s see the Top 5:
