Botox Is King
Quick Facts from ASPS
Other ASPS Statistical Briefs
More people underwent Botox treatment than any other cosmetic surgery procedure last year, according to recent figures from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
Out of the nine million cosmetic surgery treatments in 2004, including both surgical and non-invasive procedures, one in three were Botox injections.
Although 87% of all cosmetic surgery patients were female, both genders chose Botox over other procedures about 1/3 of the time.
This would come as no surprise to most plastic surgeons, as the average surgeon’s fee for Botox was only $376. To put that into perspective, the price tag on a nose job was about $3,330, and the average tummy tuck would have set you back more than $4,500 last year.
In terms of how many years a cosmetic surgery procedure can take off of your appearance, Botox seems to give more bang for the buck than other cosmetic surgery treatments.
As for procedures requiring surgery, most women opted for liposuction, followed closely be breast augmentation. Men had over twice as many nose jobs than any other surgical procedure, including the 14,000 male breast reductions performed last year.
