The top 5 plastic surgery procedures
Tuesday, August 15, 2017
Plastic surgery is on the rise in the United States. There were almost 1.8 million cosmetic surgeries performed last year, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
In this video, Dr. Steven C. Schmidt, a plastic surgeon with Plastic Surgery & Skin Specialists by BayCare Clinic, discusses these procedures and why they’re growing in popularity.
“The most common plastic surgery procedures, almost year after year, No. 1 is breast augmentation,” Schmidt says. “It continues to rise in popularity, and the number of breast augmentations we perform each year is growing both here in Green Bay as well as around the country.”
Breast augmentation has been the most popular plastic surgery procedure in America since 2006. The other four popular procedures are:
- Rhinoplasty (nose surgery)
- Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)
“If you’re interested or have questions about any of these procedures, the best thing to do is to come in and make an appointment,” Schmidt says. “Those appointments are free so that you can get the education and understand what your options are.”
