Many have valid fears of getting plastic surgery procedures.  If you think you are one of the few unhappy with your appearance, rest assured that you’re not. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) has released statistics showing the incline of many plastic surgery procedures, including facelifts and breast augmentations.

Fears often associated with receiving procedures are unexpected outcomes, negative reactions from family and friends, and reacting badly to treatments and medication. Practices of such surgeries are increasingly becoming more safe with new technologies, and with the implementation of more strict ethical practices required of board-certified plastic surgeons. Because of this knowledge, more patients are becoming comfortable with the possibility of going under the knife.

In just the past year, more than 15 million cosmetic procedures, invasive and minimally invasive, were performed. That’s up from 14 million that were performed in 2012.  Two of the most increased are facelifts, which increased by seven thousand procedures, and blepharoplasties (eyelid surgery), which increased by over 11 thousand.

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure which removes access tissue in the upper and/or lower eyelids. While treatment options can be customized from immense to moderately small,  change in appearance are often very modest, giving patients refreshed looks. Many similar surgical procedures are offered, including facelifts, in which physicians are able to give patients effective outcomes that does not complete changely their appearance, but gives them an improved look.
