Of the nearly 1.8 million cosmetic surgical procedures performed in 2016, the top 5 were Breast Augmentation, Liposuction, Nose Reshaping, Eyelid Surgery and Facelifts.

Among the 15.5 million cosmetic minimally-invasive procedures performed in 2016, the top 5 were Botulinum Toxin Type A, Soft Tissue Fillers, Chemical Peel, Laser Hair Removal and Microdermabrasion.

Non-invasive fat reduction and skin tightening procedures

More people are shaping up with procedures that target pockets of fat and reduce sagging of the skin. The ASPS reports that injection-based procedures that target fat in specific areas, such as under the chin, increased 18% in 2016. Meanwhile, fat reduction using special technology to “freeze” fat without surgery increased by 5%.
