The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), the world’s largest association of facial plastic surgeons, released its annual survey results for 2018. The annual survey explores the top trends in facial plastic surgery today.

This year’s findings indicate a strong link between Millennials (now 22-37 years old) and the growing demand for cosmetic procedures. The average number of surgical procedures has almost doubled since 2013 (up 47 percent) with a 22 percent increase in Botox injections compared to 2013, revealing that facial tweaks and treatments continue to be embraced and are sought after at a marathon pace.

AAFPRS members note that there is more emphasis on early care or pre-juvenation in the 20’s and 30’s and that technology – both in the physician’s office and at home – plays a key role in confidence.
