Liposuction Captures $1 Billion Market As America’s Top Cosmetic Surgery
Are you considering cosmetic surgery to help give you a more defined contour or shape up some stubborn fat?
Cosmetic surgery is in an exciting time of expansion, with Americans spending in numbers that have not been seen since the recent recession. Many different types of procedures are experiencing a swell in demand, but it was liposuction that claimed the top spot for cosmetic surgery procedures performed in 2013.
Liposuction has always been one of the most well-known options for aesthetic modification, but it saw a 16% jump in popularity from 2012 to 2013, replacing breast augmentation as the most performed surgical procedure of the year. According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), well over 300,000 operations were performed, capturing a market of over $1 billion.
The increased demand for the procedure is being helped by the economic recovery, which allows patients more flexibility in spending and gives them greater access to their choice of medical aesthetic procedures.
Often used in conjunction with other cosmetic treatments, liposuction is a body-shaping solution that works by removing pockets of fat from beneath the skin. Advancements in surgical technology have also made the procedure more efficient and cost-effective for those who might wish to pursue it.
More Americans than ever are considering this step; consumer market research estimates that millions are taking an active interest in researching the possibility. Experts like Dr. Sobel, who has performed several thousand liposuction procedures, can use accomplished surgical methods and experience in aesthetic surgery to offer the best results in this increasingly popular field.
