Cosmetic Procedures | Surgical | Non Surgical | Northern VirginiaAs per a report released by American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the expenditure of Americans on surgical and non surgical aesthetic plastic surgeries during 2013-2014 was more than $12 million signifying a growth rate of 12 percent. Americans spent a larger sum of money on surgical procedures which were carried out by dermatologists, otolaryngologists and board certified surgeons like Dr Trang Vo-Nguyen of Chantilly.

Final figures that emerged during this study show that liposuction or fat removal is the most popular procedure of all that was performed 342,494 times. This is followed by breast augmentation procedures that stand second in popularity with around 286694 surgeries performed between 2013 and 2014. Two other procedures that gained in popularity during this same period are buttock augmentation that reported increase by 86 percent while labiaplasty had an increase of 49 percent. This trend shows the growing interest of people in these procedures due to greater availability of information and open discussions within citizens of Fairfax, VA.

The recent technical advances made in facial plastic surgeries have led to less invasive and easy recovery procedures at reasonable costs which have increased the popularity of aesthetic procedures among general public in Northern Virginia and elsewhere. This demand for facial cosmetic surgeries had lead to nationwide growth in eyelid surgeries which is among the third most preferred surgery followed by nose surgery which witnessed growth of 2.9 percent.

Plastic surgeries preferred by men

Men during 2014 underwent nearly 1 million cosmetic surgery procedures depicting an increase of 9.4 percent since last year and a whooping 273 percent increase since 1997 when records were collected for the first time. In Warrenton and other small towns like Middleburg and Manassas a growing economy is encouraging people to start investing in their well being again. Common surgical procedures that are preferred by men comprise of both body related surgeries like liposuction and male breast reduction along with facial surgeries like liposuction, ear surgery and nose surgery.

Most preferred non –surgical procedures

During 2013 both men and women underwent non surgical procedures and spent more than $2.5 billion on injectable procedures like botolinium toxin and hyaluronic acid to improve their aesthetic appearance. In addition to this around $1.9 billion was spent on skin rejuvenation procedures like microdermabrasion, permanent hair removal and also photo rejuvenation. These anti-aging procedures have grown in popularity in even small towns like Loudon County and Fauquier as people have more disposable income now than before. There is also an increase for such procedures in  Prince William, Arlington and Leesburg.

In forthcoming years with better information collection questionnaires the association will be able to identify which cosmetic surgery procedures are the safest and also which are likely to provide long term results.
