Most Popular Plastic Surgery Procedures By Joseph M. Brown, MD, FACS on November 23, 2020

Over the past few decades, plastic surgery has been growing in popularity. Both men and women are abandoning previous stigmas and embracing the fact that our physical appearances are cultivated as well as natural. As a result, we now understood that diet, skincare, exercise, and plastic surgery often work in tandem to achieve the elevated beauty standards that are considered the norm in popular culture. For the plastic surgery Tampa, visit Dr. Brown. Now, let's look at the most popular plastic surgery procedures.

Most Popular Plastic Surgery Procedures

Of course, if you’re new to plastic surgery, it helps to get an idea of what options are out there. A board-certified plastic surgeon could certainly walk you through the most common procedures and even help you pinpoint the areas that concern you. However, it’s perfectly understandable if you aren’t yet ready to speak directly to a professional. For you, here’s a list of the top plastic surgery procedures. You can use it just to get familiar with plastic surgery or simply to satiate your curiosity.

Breast Augmentation Tampa

Although the number of breast augmentations have slightly decreased over the last twenty years, the procedure remains the most popular plastic surgery in the United States. Thanks to ongoing innovation, plastic surgeons can now offer patients a range of options from the typical silicone implant to implants that recreate a more natural appearance. Breast augmentation can:

  • Adjust asymmetry
  • Fix a less flattering breast shape
  • Or increase the size of the breasts themselves

It’s a fully customizable experience.


Liposuction is not quite as popular, but in 2018 roughly 265,000 men and women underwent the procedure in the United States. Recent statistics actually show liposuction growing in popularity. Experts suggest that this is largely due to improvements in the procedure. This makes it safer and give the surgeon more control over the contour of your body. Liposuction also allows for targeted fat removal, allowing men and women to reshape specific parts of their body without more radical surgery.

Eyelid Surgery

The growing popularity of eyelid surgeries tends to surprise people, but a little information immediately demystifies the process. Eyelid surgeries are popular among two particular communities for entirely separate reasons. For one, those who are experiencing the effects of aging often seek out blepharoplasty to prevent their sagging eyelids from physically obscuring their vision. Eyelid surgery is also popular in the Asian/Pacific Islander community. A larger number of people undergo a double eyelid surgery to create the illusion of a larger eye.

Nose Reshaping

Dermal fillers can often be used to temporarily create a different nose shape. And they may contribute to the slight decrease in surgical rhinoplasties over the last few years. However, a rhinoplasty or “nose-job” remains the only permanent solution if you’re unhappy with the shape of your nose. Given the central role our nose plays and its ability to enhance our other facial features, it’s no surprise that nose reshaping procedures are still at the top of the list.


Several non-surgical procedures and other, smaller surgical procedures  can improve the look of the face. But a full facelift remains the best way to go if you want dramatic results. The efficacy of the surgical facelift speaks for itself. In 2018, the number of facelift procedures went up 2% despite the widespread availability of non-surgical options.

Speaking with a Professional

These may be the five most popular plastic surgeries. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that one of these will fit your needs. Plastic surgery remains highly personal endeavor that should never be taken lightly. To truly understand the process and move towards your personal goals, you should speak with Dr. Joseph Brown at Tampa Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery. He can help talk you through your particular needs and present workable solutions to give you a better idea of how you might cultivate the best version of yourself.
