A Look at the Growth Trends in Aesthetic Procedures in the US

The medspa is led by Dr. Gary Motykie, who is an experienced plastic surgeon with a reputed practice. Dr. Motykie brings rich experience and expertise to his medical spa, which is a distinguishing feature of the facility. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding areas have an opportunity to receive treatment at the state of the art facility.

Growing Popularity of Cosmetic Treatments

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) released a comprehensive “Plastic Surgery Statistics Report” in 2012, which provides interesting data about the increasing nationwide acceptance of surgical as well as non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the United States. The growth is not limited just to a few selected invasive or non-invasive treatments, and the phenomenon appears to be consistent for a wide range of procedures across the board.
The figures provided by the ASPS are a testimony to the fact that patient satisfaction with regard to various surgical and non-surgical aesthetic procedures is on the rise. In fact, the figures reveal a significant increase in the number of repeat patients. Reputed medical spa facilities such as Motykie MedSpa are a part of this growth trend, and enjoy a consistently high patient satisfaction and patient loyalty towards the facility.

Statistical Highlights

The ASPS report shows that a total of 14.6 million cosmetic procedures were performed in the U.S. in 2012, which represented a five percent increase over the previous year. The number of cosmetic minimally invasive procedures was as high as 13 million, which was an increase of six percent over the previous year.
The top five cosmetic surgical procedures in 2012 included breast augmentation, nose reshaping, eyelid surgery, liposuction, and a facelift. Breast augmentation continued to be the leading cosmetic surgery procedure, and has been at the top since 2006. 62 percent of the breast augmentation patients opted for silicone implants, compared to 38 percent for saline implants.
Among the minimally invasive aesthetic procedures, Botox outperformed other procedures significantly. 6.1 million Botox Type A treatments were performed in 2012, which marked an increase of eight percent over 2011. Dermal fillers came at the second spot with two million procedures, followed by chemical peel treatment, laser hair removal and microdermabrasion procedures in that order.
Among all the non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic treatments, facial rejuvenation procedures experienced the maximum growth in 2012. Interestingly enough, 91 percent of all cosmetic procedures were performed on women, while only nine percent were performed on men. Nearly half of all cosmetic procedures were performed on people in the age group of 40 to 54 years.

Growth in Repeat Patients

Perhaps the biggest reaffirmation for the aesthetic treatment providers came in the form of the faith reposed by existing patients of cosmetic surgical and non-surgical procedures. Business from repeat patients grew by seven percent in 2012 compared to 2011, which represents a significant jump in a single year. It demonstrates the high satisfaction levels of patients with aesthetic procedures across the board.
