The liposuction procedure is one of those cosmetic surgeries that withstands the test of time! The earliest origins of liposuction date back to the beginning of the 20th century, but today’s procedure has come so much farther than those early body contouring methods. Today, liposuction is highly safe, effective, state-of-the-art, and oftentimes involves only a minimal recovery.
In 2020, liposuction was a popular procedure despite all elective procedures being down as a result of the pandemic. Check out the liposuction facts below for a better idea of what happened last year.
- 2020: 211,067 total liposuction procedures
- The Number 4 surgical procedure last year by number of procedures performed
- 22,815 patients were male
- 188,252 patients were female
- People age 40-54 made up the largest percentage of liposuction patients at 43 percent (89,729 people)
Furthermore, in an ASPS survey of 1,000 women, liposuction was one of the top procedures among women who are interested in getting a cosmetic procedure in the next 6 months.
Why Liposuction May Be a Top Procedure in 2021
Many office, call center, and customer service professionals shifted to work-from-home settings last year. Now, as people return to work and return to full-time workout routines and gym memberships, will we see a rise in body contouring procedures like liposuction? It’s quite possible! Liposuction removes the stubborn fat that lingers even after you’ve pursued weight loss through exercise.
