Liposuction Exceeds Breast Augmentation Surgery

For a decade, breast augmentation surgery was the most popular cosmetic plastic surgery procedure to be performed in the United States. Now, according to a new study by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), liposuction has surpassed breast enlargement – liposuction makes up 18.8 percent of plastic surgery procedures, while breast augmentation comes in second with 17 percent.

As the rate of obesity is increasing, there is no wonder why liposuction has become more popular and has surpassed breast augmentation in numbers. Even as individuals attempt to lose weight the natural way – diet and exercise – there are certain areas of the body that do not respond well, if at all. Therefore, to remove stubborn fat deposits, a qualified plastic surgeon can perform liposuction and help patients achieve a more slender body contour. However, liposuction surgery is not a replacement for natural weight loss; this should be combined with a healthy lifestyle in order to maintain optimal results.

In San Diego, board certified plastic surgeon Carol Hollan, M.D., F.A.C.S. performs liposuction and breast augmentation surgery. She has the experience and training to provide patients with their desired outcome through these breast and body enhancing procedures. Further information regarding both surgeries is available on Dr. Hollan’s website.
