Facial Plastic Surgery Statistics for 2009

Survey results from the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery were recently publicized. Although their data sample is relatively small, the statistics provide some insight about the future of facial plastic surgery and some trends we have seen during the past two years.

With the obvious growth in non-surgical cosmetic enhancement, the overall number of procedures performed by facial plastic surgeons increased considerably (47 percent). In 2009, facial surgeons performed more facelifts and laser skin resurfacing procedures and fewer lip augmentation and rhinoplasty procedures than in 2008.
