page 2 of 4According to the report, America's five most common cosmetic surgeries in 2005 were:
- Liposuction: 323,605
- Nose reshaping: 298,413
- Breast augmentation: 291,350
- Eyelid surgery: 230,697
- Tummy tuck: 134,746
Facelifts didn't make the list.
"The facelift is still a highly sought-after procedure. Nearly 109,000 were performed last year," says American Society of Plastic Surgeons president Bruce Cunningham, MD, in a news release.
"However, the fact [that] it didn't make the top five surgical procedures can be attributed to increased consumer demand for minimally invasive injectable wrinkle fillers and fighters as a remedy to combat facial aging," Cunningham says.
