Cosmetic surgery in Draper has continued to rise in popularity over the years, with more individuals dropping the stigmas surrounding them and realizing the benefits! Over the past few years, five procedures have remained on top. Here are the top cosmetic surgeries of 2017 according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons statistics and what makes them so popular.

Top 5 Cosmetic Surgeries

Breast Augmentation

The most popular cosmetic surgery today is the breast augmentation. There are many reasons why this procedure continues to gain in popularity and stay on top. For one, the results can give a significant boost in confidence, helping women achieve fuller, well-contoured, and symmetrical breasts. The fear of implants being unsafe also continues to fade as new, safer material and techniques are emerging, making risks of complications very minimal. The procedure is also highly customizable, allowing women to choose the size, shape, texture, and placement of their implants for results that fit their unique body type and desired aesthetic.


Liposuction also remains popular, coming in second on the list once again. Although it is considered a surgical procedure, the incisions used are very tiny. Through these small incisions, a cannula is used to break up stubborn fat cells to be gently suctioned out. What makes this procedure so appealing is that results are significant and permanent! Although you should still avoid weight gain to maintain your results, your removed fat cells cannot return. Liposuction in Draper can be used in many areas of the body including the abdomen, flanks, buttocks, thighs, bra area, upper arms, and under the chin for effective body contouring and precise sculpting.


Your face is arguably your most noticeable feature, so if you aren’t happy with its appearance, this can take a big toll on your self-confidence. Unflattering noses are common, making the rhinoplasty nose reshaping procedure so popular. A rhinoplasty can improve common concerns such as a hump in the nose, a nose that’s too big, long, or wide, or a deviated septum.

Eyelid Surgery

While your eyelids may not seem like an important feature of your body, their appearance can make a huge difference in how young you look! Drooping eyelids with enough excess skin can even affect your vision. Eyelid surgery can remove excess skin and tissue from the eyelids to give you a more awake and rejuvenated appearance.

Tummy Tuck

Many men and women desire a toned abdominal but struggle to achieve this because of loose, hanging skin and tissue. whether it’s from weight loss, age, pregnancy, or other factors, a tummy tuck in Draper can remove this excess tissue and tighten the muscles beneath to give you the flattened stomach you’ve been aiming for. Also, the several types of a tummy tuck can help tailor this procedure to your specific needs.
