A survey released by the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS) has found a 3% increase in men seeking aesthetic surgery. The survey also found that, for the seventh year in a row, liposuction proved to be the nation’s top aesthetic surgical procedure, with botulinum toxin Type A injections the top noninvasive  procedure.

The report includes data on the prevalence of various aesthetic surgery procedures, broken down by gender. The survey also showed that of all aesthetic procedures performed, 34% were surgical and 66% were nonsurgical.

The 2006 Procedural Data is based on a survey of US-based AACS members completed in December 2006. The entire report, conducted by RH Research, is available by contacting the Academy.
