Since the year 2000, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) has collected data from board-certified plastic surgeons to determine the rate at which each procedure is being performed. In 2017, the top five plastic surgery procedures performed in the United States were:
In 2000, the top four procedures were identical to those from 2017, but facelift came in at number five that year. That same year, there were 62,713 tummy tuck surgeries performed by board-certified plastic surgeons in the U.S. By 2017, that number has increased 107% to 129,753. Some of these were performed alone and others during procedures such as the mommy makeover.
As part of a mommy makeover or on its own, a tummy tuck can be profoundly transformative and Dr. Fiala has taken steps to ensure those he offers produce the most stunningly beautiful results. From products to minimize scarring to techniques that assist with postoperative discomfort without the use of dangerous opioids, every effort is made to optimize the patient experience.
A highly respected and trusted tummy tuck surgeon, Dr. Fiala prefers a low incision that can easily be hidden by underwear or clothing. In cases where it is necessary, Dr. Fiala will also remove fat from the mons pubis/veneris for optimal contours. During your free abdominoplasty consultation, we can discuss these and other options in greater detail.
At Fiala Aesthetics, we have integrated the latest and safest technologies and techniques into our surgical procedures. For breast augmentation, Dr. Fiala was one of the first plastic surgeons in Central Florida to adopt the rapid recovery technique for dual plane breast augmentation and continues to provide innovative solutions such as the Keller funnel, which allows for smaller incisions and may help shorten recovery. Fiala Aesthetics was also one of the first practices in our area to offer the option of a structured saline implant, which can make saline implants look and feel much more natural. Call us today for your free breast augmentation consultation to learn more.
Nonsurgical Procedures Surge in Popularity
The five most commonly performed non-surgical cosmetic treatments in 2017 were:
Nonsurgical procedures are performed with greater regularity with options like BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport being injected more than 7 million times and soft tissue fillers like Restylane® Refyne and Defyne being injected nearly 3 million times over the course of the year. By comparison, breast augmentation, the most popular surgical procedure, was performed 300,378 times by board-certified plastic surgeons in the United States last year, about a factor of 20 difference!
At some plastic surgery practices, injectables are ancillary – an afterthought even. At Fiala Aesthetics, we perform injections every day. Phi Nguyen, our injection specialist, has attended several advanced training courses where she has learned techniques including the use of micro-cannulas to minimize bruising. Skilled at providing the exact right amount of filler to produce a natural look, we take every care to ensure attractive results that ideally complement the natural features of your face.
If you are nervous about injections, we offer free nitrous oxide to assist with comfort and we only offer FDA-approved fillers. The skill, expertise, and professionalism of our med spa team has earned us distinctions including “Diamond Level” status from Allergan, the manufacturer of BOTOX® Cosmetic, Juvederm, and several other cosmetic products.
