In 2015, 15.9 million cosmetic procedures were performed across the U.S. As reported by the American Society for Plastic Surgeons, Breast Augmentation was the most popular Plastic Surgery, but what are proclivities ranked by state? The Plastic Surgery Portal compiled information from Google to determine which procedures Americans are most curious about, but might not actually go through with.
On a map revealing the top-searched Plastic Surgery categorized by state, procedures include Breast Implants, Laser Hair Removal, Lip Injections, Penis Enlargement, Eyelid Surgery, Vaginal Rejuvenation, and Liposuction.
“I have seen a dramatic increase in the demand for Juvéderm®™ and Microdroplet Silicone Lip Injections in the last two to three years.” — Dr. Slupchynskyj
Adjoining states such as New York and New Jersey saw some drastic differences in popular procedures: the former searched mainly for Liposuction, while the latter was curious about Laser Hair Removal. Currently, the country’s two newest states, Hawaii and Alaska, were most interested in Penis Enlargement Surgery.
Overall, most state residents in the southeast region of the country were searching for information about Liposuction. Presently, Breast Implants were a top-searched term in the northwestern United States.
Compared to the previous year, Americans saw a 2% increase in Plastic Surgeries in 2015. Breast Augmentation has remained the most common procedure since 2006.
