Breast Augmentation Overtakes Liposuction as Top Cosmetic Procedure for 2008

ASAPS, working with an independent research firm, compiled the 12-year national data for procedures performed 1997-2008. A paper-based questionnaire was mailed to 16,000 Board-Certified physicians (6,000 Dermatologists, 6,000 Otolaryngologists, and 4,000 Plastic Surgeons). A total of 894 completed and valid responses (461 Plastic Surgeons, 277 Dermatologists, and 156 Otolaryngologists) were received in time for tabulation.

Final figures have been projected to reflect nationwide statistics and are based exclusively on the Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons; Otolaryngologists; and Dermatologists. The findings have been aggregated and extrapolated to the known population of 23,600 physicians who are Board Certified in these specialties. Though the confidence intervals change by procedure, depending on the grouping’s sample size and the response variance, the overall survey portion of this research has a standard error of +/- 3.21% at a 95% level of confidence.

The top five surgical procedures in 2008:

  • Breast Augmentation
  • Liposuction
  • Eyelid Surgery
  • Rhinoplasty
  • Abdominoplasty

The top five non-surgical procedures in 2008:

  • Botox
  • Laser Hair Removal
  • Hyaluronic acid wrinkle fillers (Juvederm, Restylane)
  • Chemical Peel
  • Laser Skin Resurfacing
