According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 21 million plastic surgery procedures were performed in the United States last year alone. That includes 5.8 million reconstructive surgeries such as scar and laceration repair, tumor removal, and hand surgery, and 15.9 million cosmetic surgery procedures including soft tissue care, injectable and facial treatments, liposuction, lifts, reductions, tummy tucks, and augmentations. That means that 57,000 cosmetic or reconstructive surgeries were performed per day.
Between 2000 and 2015, the number of plastic surgeries performed increased by 115%. All of this tells us that plastic surgeries are becoming more accessible and popular.
Why The Increase in Demand?
There are two reasons why plastic surgery is in demand. First, it is a more popular and effective method of treating physical ailments and mental health concerns. Plastic surgeons treat lacerations and scars, certain burn wounds, microsurgery, tumor removal, deviated septums, cleft lips, and much more.
Plastic surgery can be an effective way to treat psychological problems as well. Patients who have scars or visible evidence from a previous injury or traumatic experience may not want to be reminded of those events. Removing the signs can improve self-esteem and confidence while helping a patient move on with their lives. Other times, patients undergo a drastic body transformation, and plastic surgery can be an aid in regaining confidence in their body image.
The second reason that plastic surgery is in demand is that there is less of a social stigma surrounding the industry. People are more open about their experience with plastic surgeons, and celebrities have brought reconstructive surgery into the public sphere via television, magazines, and more.
