Are some cosmetic surgeries more common than others?

Depending on factors such as cultural background and age, certain plastic surgeries are more common than others in various demographics.

The purpose of cosmetic surgery, also known as plastic surgery, is to change the appearance of a person. Because there are numerous beauty standards people feel the need to adhere to, plastic surgery is very common in the U.S. The age of the person who is willing to have a plastic surgery plays a major role in deciding which procedure they want to undergo, as certain cosmetic surgeries are more popular among certain demographics. For instance, people between the ages of 13 and 19 often choose nose reshaping, ear surgery, laser hair removal, and breast augmentation.

However, regardless of age, the most common plastic surgeries performed throughout the U.S. include:

  • breast augmentation
  • breast lift
