Nonsurgical Cosmetic Treatments Increase in 2013: More Money Than Ever Spent on Services

2013 was a year that saw significant increase in both cosmetic surgical and nonsurgical treatments, according to the ASAPS’ newest release. In fact, it’s stated that those in the U.S. have spent the most amount of money on cosmetic surgery since the economic downfall in 2008.

Revolutionary technology and an interest to invest in such services are just two things that keep this 10 billion dollar market booming. There is a high demand for these treatments and now people have more of a disposable income to spend versus back in 2007, 2008, and 2009. Because these services continue to advance, they provide shorter (or no) recovery periods, less invasive methods, and much more flawless results.

As reported by the ASAPS, here are the 2013 cosmetic statistics:

The top five surgical treatments:

  • Liposuction
