Cosmetic surgical procedures have become increasingly popular in recent years. Each year, millions of men and women have them performed. The following two reports analyze the liposuction market and the overall cosmetic surgery market.
More and more people are looking to have cosmetic surgery performed. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS), more than 17 million Americans had a cosmetic surgical procedure performed in 2017. That's up by about 2% from the year prior, suggesting strong growth for the market.
The defining characteristic of cosmetic surgery is that it's performed for the purpose of improving or altering a person's appearance rather than improving his or her physical health.
Some cosmetic surgical procedures come with health benefits, but they are all performed with the primary goal of improving the person's appearance. Any health benefits are just secondary to the "cosmetic" benefits.
