Is your plastic surgeon keeping you safe? Every year hundreds of thousands of cosmetic surgical procedures are performed, many by board-certified surgeons in accredited hospitals or other medical facilities. However, there are many outpatient locations in which non-specialists not subject to the standards of state and federal regulations execute the same procedures. In such environments, even common procedures such as liposuction can turn deadly without proper protection from risks such as infection.
Have you been dreaming of that fairytale makeover? Well, you’re not alone. The newest trend in plastic surgery inspiration may not be what you expect. Since the release of Disney’s “Maleficent,” the bewitching cheekbones of the black-robed title character, played by Angelina Jolie, have cast a spell over many women wishing to highlight their own facial contours.
Beauty is, for certain, in the eye of the beholder, but how does the background change that view? Plastic surgery is becoming more and more prevalent across the United States. The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery recently put out some stats about the popularity of procedures by state. Lets take a look at a few different procedures and see where they are most popular.
When it comes to hand and face transplants, much is still unknown. The first facial procedure was completed just over five years ago, and since then just seven have been performed in three U.S. hospitals. Twenty patients have undergone hand transplants. Public interest is slowly increasing, though there is a tremendous amount of groundwork to be completed before these two procedures will be considered a widespread solution.
Plastic surgery reports show that some of the most popular procedures include rhinoplasties, tummy tucks, and breast augmentations. But some people are surprised to see that other, more private areas of the body are being targeted by women and their surgeons. Buttock augmentation and vaginal rejuvenation, also known as a labiaplasty, saw tremendous growth last year. In fact, the number of buttock procedures rose by 58% in 2013. Nearly 10,000 buttock augmentations with fat grafting were performed last year. The number of vaginal rejuvenation procedures increased by 44% between 2012 and 2013.
