The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), the world's largest association of facial plastic surgeons, has released its 2019 survey results. The annual survey explores the top trends in facial plastic surgery, revealing the most popular procedures and industry influences of 2019.
Overall, facial plastic surgery procedures increased 6% last year compared to 2018, suggesting a strong link between millennials' purchasing power and the growing demand for non-surgical procedures. The average number of nonsurgical procedures is up 13% compared to 2018. In fact, 85% of the total number of procedures performed by AAFPRS members is now composed of minimally invasive nonsurgical procedures with skin treatments (up 39%), fillers (up 13%), and neurotoxins/Botox (up 12%) topping the list. The "Botox/Neurotoxins" category has seen the largest growth of all procedures, with a 50% jump compared to 2013.
