Botox and Breast Augmentation Are the Most Popular Plastic Surgery Procedures in the U.S.
Its enduring popularity is partly due to the variety of procedures it can be used for. “I use Botox mainly for wrinkles across the forehead, the ’11’ lines and the crow’s feet,” Melissa Doft, a board-certified plastic surgeon in New York City, tells Allure. “I also use it for hyperhidrosis, which is excess sweating.”
However, the old-school injectable might owe the new wave of love in larger part to decreasing taboos around injectables. “We are seeing more patients trying Botox for the first time, including more male patients and patients at both ends of the age spectrum,” says Doft. “The increase in popularity has encouraged discussion around the topic and therefore has decreased taboo.”
