Statistics collected and presented by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show the cosmetic surgery industry continues to grow in the US. Americans spent $16 billion on cosmetic surgery and non-invasive aesthetic treatments in 2016. The top 5 last year were:
- Breast Augmentation 290,467 procedures
- Liposuction 235,237 procedures
- Nose Reshaping 223,018 procedures

Nearly 1.8 million cosmetic surgeries were performed in the US last year. Additionally, 15.5 million minimally invasive treatments were performed, with BOTOX® Cosmetic in the lead.
The ASPS also reports an increase in fat grafting procedures, in which excess fat is removed from the body and re-injected into another area to augment it. Fat injections overall rose 13 percent, while butt augmentation using fat grafting increased 26 percent.
