Surgeons See Dramatic Rise In Facelifts And Fillers

November 15, 2005

Rhytidectomy surgeries (facelifts) increased 46% in the U.S. from 2002 to 2003, according to a member survey by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS). The survey revealed patients 40 and younger opted for non-invasive procedures. For example, Botox injections increased 133% and chemical peel procedures by 369% from 2002 in that age group. Filler injections were also up 39% and fat injections up 191%. With the recent FDA approval of Restylane in 2004, the AAFPRS forecasts an even greater increase in these types of procedures.
