Cosmetic facial plastic procedures, surgical and nonsurgical alike, continue to increase in number. Recent statistics from the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery indicate that approximately 78% of the nearly 8.3 million cosmetic procedures performed in the United States each year are nonsurgical. Similar statistics have been demonstrated by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery who report that over the past 5 years there has been a 47% increase in nonsurgical procedures compared with a 19% increase in surgical procedures. The demographic of those seeking cosmetic procedures is dramatically changing also. Although cosmetic surgery was once predominantly sought by females, more and more male patients are now seeking treatment.
