Plastic surgery procedures on the rise

Published On: Nov 20 2012 03:08:18 PM EST

More and more Americans have opted for plastic surgery procedures in recent years. Last year Americans spent almost $10 billion on cosmetic procedures.

Last year, the number of surgical procedures rose about 1 percent while the number of non-invasive procedures dropped 2 percent, according to the findings by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).

The most popular plastic surgery last year was liposuction. Injections like Botox were also very popular among patients.
