Cosmetic procedures continued to trend upward in 2017, driven by minimally invasive procedures like Botox, fillers and chemical peels, according to newly-published statistics. Since 2000, these procedures have shot up by nearly 200 percent, according to the data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Cosmetic procedures - surgical and minimally invasive - increased by about two percent in 2017 over the previous year. Breast reductions saw a surprising comeback with an 11 percent spike on the heels of news that celebrities like Ariel Winter and Amber Rose have gone under the knife for the procedure.

Share this article Share In 2017, plastic surgeons performed a total of 1.8 million invasive cosmetic surgeries, driven by faster growth for face-altering work, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). THE TOP FIVE COSMETIC SURGERIES OF 2017 1. Breast augmentation There were 300,387 breast augmentations performed in 2017. Breast augmentations have long been among the most popular body modifications, and became three percent more common in the last year. 2. Liposuction Liposuction to remove fat was done nearly 250,000 times in 2017. The procedure gained popularity beginning in the 1980s, and saw a five percent increase in the last year. 3. Nose reshaping Plastic surgeons did 218,924 procedures to alter the slopes, sizes and shapes of Americans noses last year. While nose jobs remain popular, the procedure fell slightly out of favor in 2017, with a two percent decrease from 2016. 4. Eyelid surgery This operation to tighten the appearance of eyelids were performed 209,000 times in 2017, tracking closely with the previous year. 5. Tummy tuck Tummy tucks continue to become increasingly popular and surgeons did two percent more of these procedures in 2017 than they did in 2016. In total, 129,573 tummy tucks were done in 2017. THE TOP FIVE MINIMALLY INVASIVE COSMETIC PROCEDURES OF 2017 1. Botox A total of 7.23 million people got Botox last year, a two percent increase over 2016. 2. Soft tissue fillers These wrinkle-masking procedures were done 2.69 million times, trending upward by about three percent. 3. Chemical peels More than 1.3 million people got chemical peels last year, though the procedure's popularity seems to be leveling off with a growth rate of one percent over 2016. 4. Laser hair removal Laser hair removal remains a popular and accessible procedure, but with 1.1 million removals done last year, the field saw a two percent decrease. 5. Microdermabrasion This skin resurfacing technique has been a part of the industry for decades, but with only 740,287 procedures done last year, it seems to be falling out of favor. BIG COMEBACK best cla for belly fat SMALLER BREASTS AS REDUCTION PROCEDURES SURGE BY 11 PERCENT In 2017, doctors performed 11 percent more breast reduction procedures than they had the year before. In fact, in 2016, breast reductions were down by about four percent. But recently, more celebrities have been getting reductions. Model and actress Amber Rose went under the knife in January, and Modern Family actress Ariel Winter was ahead of the curve, getting her reduction done in 2015. People seeking cosmetic procedures often cite celebrities whose body and facial features that they would like to more closely resemble, so a similar phenomenon may be at play for breast reductions.

Research has linked larger breast sizes to a range of mental and physical issues faced by women. Scientists disagree about whether or not larger breasts can really cause back problems, but a survey distributed by the University of Portsmouth found that 17 percent of women blamed their breasts and the difficulty of finding a properly-fitting sports bra for their lack of physical activity. Other research has suggested that women that feel like their breasts are not 'normal' in size - whether too large or too small - are more likely to struggle with mental health issues. 'Breast reductions are consistently reported as one of the highest patient satisfaction procedures because it positively affects a woman's quality of life. It addresses both functional and aesthetic concerns,' said ASPS president Dr Jeffrey Janis.
