The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) recently released its annual report, 2014 Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Statistics. Beyond documenting the number of surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures performed within the United States, this report is a great indicator of current (and future) aesthetic standards valued by our society.

Here are some interesting highlights of the report:

  • Compared to 2013, the overall demand for cosmetic procedures increased 3% in 2014, with surgical procedures increasing 1% and non-surgical procedures increasing 4%
  • Buttock enhancement procedures saw significant gains in 2014, with buttock augmentation via fat transfer increasing 15% and buttock implants increasing 98% compared to 2013.
  • The number of men seeking plastic surgery continues to rise. 2014 saw a 208% increase in the use of pectoral implants and a 29% increase in gynecomastia surgery.
