New Survey Shows Interest in Cosmetic Surgery is Up – Body Contouring and Antiaging Procedures Top the List

Moms Would Opt for a Body “Makeover”; Baby Boomers Want to Fight Age with Fillers and Facelifts if Money Wasn’t an Issue

For Immediate Release: April 27, 2010

Submit to Del.icio.usSubmit to DiggSubmit to Stumble UponSubmit to RedditAdd to Mixx!

SEATTLE – April 27, 2010 – A decline in Americans undergoing cosmetic surgery and treatments, as reported by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) today, appears to be a pause triggered by the recession rather than a wholesale change in attitudes toward cosmetic makeovers. According to a new online survey by Harris Interactive of 2,148 adults on behalf of cosmetic treatment community RealSelf.com, consumer interest in cosmetic procedures is up – way up, in many cases. More than two-thirds (69 percent) would choose to have cosmetic work done if money wasn’t an issue, up 15 points from November 2009 (54 percent), signaling interest among consumers is climbing.

Additionally, the desire for invasive plastic surgery procedures, many of which require substantial recovery time, suggests people want big changes, not just minor nips and tucks. Of those who would get cosmetic work done, almost one in three (29 percent) would choose a tummy tuck, 23 percent would want liposuction, and 13 percent would opt for a facelifts.

“We were curious to learn whether the reported decline in cosmetic surgery and procedures in 2009 was due to factors beyond the economy, such as a cultural shift away from cosmetic treatments,” said Tom Seery, president of RealSelf.com. “The survey found that this is not the case, and that interest in cosmetic makeovers is significant and expanding, especially by those seeking solutions to aging and body contouring, specifically post-pregnancy. This is in line with what we’ve seen in the RealSelf.com community, where traffic by consumers considering cosmetic procedures is up 70 percent from last year.”

Women Want to Make the Best of Their Bodies

Tummy tucks are most popular among women aged 35-44 – almost half (46 percent) would choose to tone their midsection if money wasn’t an issue, compared to 34 percent of women 18-34. More than one-third (34%) of women aged 35-44 would undergo a breast lift, and 28 percent would opt for liposuction, possibly thinking ahead to swimsuit season. Liposuction is also popular among men 35-44: 29 percent would undergo this fat removal procedure. These three procedures are most often associated with “Mommy Makeovers.”

Fighting the Clock – Antiaging Treatments Popular

According to the data released by the ASPS, minimally invasive procedures like Botox and wrinkle fillers are up 99 percent since 2000. The survey by RealSelf backs this anti-aging trend, especially among women aged 55+: of those who would choose cosmetic work if money wasn’t an option, one third (33 percent) would opt for wrinkle filler and 14 percent would choose Botox.

Facelift surgery is of high interest by baby boomers:  among those 55+ who would choose to get cosmetic treatments if money wasn’t an issue, more than one-third of women (36%) and one in 10 (11 percent) of men would choose a facelift in an effort to retain their youth. Yet, among men aged 35-44 interest is also high – one in five (16 percent) would choose a face lift if money wasn’t an issue, compared to just 6 percent of men aged 45-54.

Cosmetic makeovers people intend to undergo in 2010

The survey also looked at which treatments people planned to undergo within the next 12 months, providing insight into what types of procedures will be popular in the months ahead. More than half of people (50 percent) who are planning to undergo a minimally invasive procedure plan to get their teeth whitened, and one in five (23 percent) will go through a hair removal procedure. One in 10 (11 percent) will have a wrinkle filler injection (e.g., Juvederm, Restylane), while only 3 percent noted they will have Botox injections in the coming year.

Among cosmetic surgical procedures, one in four (27 percent) will have eyelid surgery and 18 percent will undergo hair replacement. Facelift (13 percent), tummy tuck (12 percent) and breast lift (12 percent) round out the top five procedures people have planned for the next 12 months2. Tummy tuck and facelift are also among the top five Worth It procedures on RealSelf.com. The RealSelf Worth It Index measures levels of satisfaction with procedures from actual patients, noting whether or not the results were “worth it.”
