Breast Augmentation Tops Liposuction for Most Popular Procedure in 2012

According to data released by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), breast augmentation was the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedure in 2012, narrowly edging liposuction. This represents a reverse of 2011 trends, when liposuction was #1 and breast augmentation was #2.

In 2012, there were 330,631 breast augmentation procedures performed compared with 313,011 liposuction procedures. The other procedures rounding out the top 5 were tummy tuck, eyelid surgery, and rhinoplasty.

The ASAPS data also found that silicone breast implants were used in the vast majority of breast augmentation procedures. In 2012, 72% of women opted for silicone implants. This is likely due to the fact that silicone implants look and feel more natural than saline breast implants.
