Additional data from the 2013 American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery survey reveals that patients are more concerned about overall results (73%) and cost and recovery time (71%) rather than the social stigma of having a procedure.
Surgeons who were surveyed revealed that “being secretive” or “feeling embarrassed” about having surgery were the least of patient concerns. This is a change from previous years when cosmetic get-aways were planned with the hope that no one would ask about a revitalized appearance.
For male and female patients under age 35, the most common surgery performed was rhinoplasty (90% for males and 86% for females).
Botox was the second highest among women (84%) and septoplasty (functional nose surgery) among men (66%).
In 2013, more than half of facial plastic surgeons (58%) have seen an increase in cosmetic surgery or injectables in those under age 30.
In the 35-60 age group, the most often performed procedures are blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), brow lift, Botox, facelift filler injections and chemical peel procedures.
A trend that continues from previous years is that patients are more educated about plastic surgery and the use of non-surgical procedures to delay surgical procedures.
