Top 4 Plastic Surgery Trends for 2022

Post pandemic plastic surgery boom is old news, but the interest and demand in plastic surgery still seems to be growing. According to The Aesthetic Society, Americans spent over $11.8 billion on aesthetic procedures in 2022, $8.5 billion of that solely being on plastic surgery. There were over 1.5 million cosmetic surgical procedures performed in 2022, a 19% increase since 2019 according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Much of this surge is due to social media and of course, the pandemic. Of these cosmetic surgeries, the top 4 plastic surgeries were as follows:

Liposuction surgery holds the top spot for the second year in a row. Liposuction procedures were up 23% from 2019. This body contouring procedure removes stubborn, unwanted fat pockets that diet and exercise alone can’t eliminate. See Dr. Crofts before and after gallery here.

Breast augmentations remain as one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures since 2006. There were 298,568 breast augmentation procedures performed in 2022 in the US. This surgery enhances the shape and size of breasts. Breast augmentations can correct small, uneven breast proportions.

Tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, procedures were up 37% from 2019. There were 161,948 procedures performed in 2022. Tummy tucks continue to be a patient favorite procedure for the second year in a row. This procedure tightens and reshapes the abdomen for a more defined waist line and a slimmer appearance. Abdominoplasty surgery removes excess skin and fat while tightening abdominal muscles.

Breast lifts, or mastopexy, also have held their spot as a top plastic surgery procedure for the second year in a row. Breast lift procedures have had a 30% increase from 2019, with 143,364 surgeries performed in 2022. A mastopexy repositions the nipples and breasts and reduces sagging for better symmetry and a more balanced breast appearance. A mastopexy is often combined with other procedures like mommy makeovers or breast augmentation surgery.

Due to social media influencers sharing their plastic surgery journey and more access than ever to plastic surgery, the demand for cosmetic surgery has skyrocketed. From minor, non-invasive treatments like dermal fillers and Botox, to major, transformative procedures like tummy tucks and breast augmentations.
