91% of Cosmetic Surgery Patients Want Longer Lasting Dermal Fillers

SunevaMedical, Inc., parent company for Bellafill announces groundbreaking survey by The Harris Poll. Results reveal of the 9 million patients who have had dermal fillers, an estimated 8 million are experiencing filler fatigue.

“Selfies” Trend Creating Demand for Cosmetic Surgery

The rise of ‘selfies’ and social media is having a huge impact on the facial plastic surgery industry according to a new study. In 2013, more than half of surveyed facial plastic surgeons (58%) saw an increase in cosmetic surgery or injectables in those under age 30. Women – particularly moms – continue to be the most likely candidates for facial plastic surgery and account for 81% of all surgical and non-surgical procedures in 2013.

Social Media, Need to Remain Competitive in Workforce Influencing Decisions on Cosmetic Surgery

Social media may be influencing more consumers to consider cosmetic surgery, according to a new survey by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS). The number of men undergoing facial plastic surgery also continues to rise, as more patients cite the need to remain competitive in the workforce as a determining factor in their decision. Men are more likely to request plastic surgery as a result of their significant other also undergoing cosmetic surgery.

Men – Particularly Boomers – Are Fueling Rebound in Cosmetic Surgery

A new report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons shows that men underwent more than 1.1 million cosmetic procedures in 2010, a rise of 2%. Many male surgical procedures increased significantly; facelifts for men rose 14% in 2010, while male liposuction increased 7%. For men, though, some experts believes the spike in plastic surgery has a direct relationship with the economy, as baby boomers are trying to look younger to compete in the job market. Another trend plastic surgeons are seeing is the type of patient seeking their services – the typical patient is now just an “average” guy who wants to look as good as he feels, and is not necessarily a high-profile consumer. The type of procedures that men seek out vary by age.

Baby Boomers Are Driving Force in Cosmetic Procedures Trend

According to a recent survey by the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, anti-aging procedures such as facelifts and blepharoplasty (eyelid lifts) are on the rise. So are botox and fillers. Baby boomers are aging but they don’t want their looks to do the same, therefore, many are turning to cosmetic surgery. Facelifts rose 44% from 2008 to 2009 in procedures by AACS members, totaling 34,455 in 2009. Blepharoplasty procedures went up 42%, from 42,602 to 60,507. Similarly, non-invasive anti-aging procedures such as Botox (up 157%) and fillers (up 245%) rose exponentially.
