Whether it’s for aesthetic appeal or medical necessity, Americans are receiving cosmetic procedures at a record rate. In fact, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there were 1.8 million cosmetic surgery procedures performed in the US in 2016, and an additional 15.5 million minimally invasive procedures.
But what about the Sooner state? In Oklahoma, the top surgical procedure is breast augmentation. It is followed by rhinoplasty, liposuction, blepharoplasty and abdominoplasty. Surgical procedures on the rise include “buttocks implants,” which were up 26% from last year.
According to Oklahoma plastic surgeons like Dr. Kamal Sawan, technological advancements continue to make cosmetic surgery and affordable solution to many Oklahomans.
“The technology and practices continue to evolve and change, making certain cosmetic surgeries and procedures less invasive and more affordable to patients,” said Dr. Sawan.
As far as minimally invasive procedures go, Botox is the number one procedure in Oklahoma. While many salons, clinics and even dentists offer this service, Dr. Sawan warns it is important to have a licensed, trained professional perform the procedure.
“Botox should always be performed by a licensed professional, and should be used as a tool to help amplify facial expressions,” said Dr Sawan. “This focus helps keep patients from experiencing other issues down the road. This includes muscles compensating for the loss of use and, therefore, developing other lines.”
