Posted September 12, 2019 07:53:59Women in the United States are becoming increasingly aware of how their skin looks after undergoing cosmetic procedures.
The popularity of plastic surgery has been growing in recent years, and doctors are starting to notice the changes.
Now, the Cosmetic Dermatology Society of America has released a report on the cosmetic industry and says the number of procedures performed in 2018 was the highest it’s seen since its inception in 1980.
The Cosmetic Dermetology Society also released a survey showing that nearly one in five Americans had undergone cosmetic surgery.
The number of people who have had plastic surgery increased from 6.2 million in 2016 to 7.5 million in 2018, according to the report.
While the overall percentage of Americans who had cosmetic surgery is increasing, the increase has been the largest among women, according the report, which said that a significant proportion of those women are Caucasian, African-American, and Hispanic.
According to the study, there were nearly 6.3 million procedures performed on women in 2018.
A significant number of these procedures involved removing, filling, or bleaching the skin.
The report said that in 2018 alone, there was an average of 9,900 cosmetic procedures performed each year, a total of more than one in four procedures.
In addition, there are more than 9.5 billion cosmetic procedures that are performed annually in the U.S., the report said.
The majority of cosmetic procedures are done on the face, and nearly 90 percent of them involve bleaching, the report added.
A small number of patients also report adverse reactions to cosmetic procedures, including allergic reactions, skin irritation, dryness, and inflammation.
The American Academy of Dermatologists issued a statement Thursday in which it said that it welcomes the findings from the Cosmetic Surgery and Plastic Surgery Association, which is part of the American Academy Of Dermatologic Surgeons.
The association is an association of leading dermatologists who work in the cosmetic field.
The study said that while many procedures are not as risky as cosmetic surgery, they still involve risks and are not recommended for every patient.
“The more cosmetic procedures there are, the greater the risk of complications, including serious complications and deaths,” the report stated.
