A study from the University of California, Los Angeles, has revealed that while the number of people undergoing plastic surgery in the U.S. is on the rise, it’s still quite rare.
While the average number of procedures performed annually is 1,500, only 3,000 people undergo the surgery, according to the study, which was conducted by the University’s Department of Plastic Surgery.
Researchers from the UCLA Medical School and the UCLA Health and Sciences Center studied the annual number of plastic surgeries in the United States from 2004-2013 and compared that to the number from 2005-2013.
They found that between 2006 and 2013, there were 6,000 more people undergoing surgery than in the years prior to that.
This trend is largely due to the increasing popularity of plastic surgery among women, which is seen as a trend that’s increasing over time.
According to the UCLA study, the average plastic surgeon is a woman in their late 40s or early 50s and has been in the field of plastic medicine for 30 years.
In the past year, the number, in terms of total procedures, has increased by 6,800, which also includes people who underwent facial reconstructive surgery, ear surgery, liposuction, face lift, and breast augmentation.
