If You’re Having “Something Done” You’re in Good Company

Cosmetic ProceduresIn 2014, you could have taken the entire population of Australia (not counting the koala bears, however) and performed a cosmetic procedure (surgical and non-surgical) on every one of them. And you still would have had a few Botox sessions and tummy tucks left over.

That’s how many cosmetic procedures were performed in 2014 — over 20 million — according to statistics released this summer by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS).

Obviously, with the growth of injectables, non-surgical procedures led the way.

Here are the top five non-surgical procedures

  • Botulinum Toxin = 4,830,911
  • Hyaluronic Acid = 2,690,633
  • Hair Removal = 1,277,581
  • Chemical Peel = 493,043
  • Laser Skin Resurfacing = 480,271

Here are the top five cosmetic surgeries performed

  • Eyelid Surgery = 1,427,451
  • Liposuction = 1,372,901
  • Breast Augmentation = 1,348,197
  • Fat Grafting = 965,727
  • Rhinoplasty = 849,445

Women accounted for 86.3% of the total, with more than 17 million procedures. Men had 2.5 million procedures, 12.7% of the total. The most popular for women? Breast augmentation. Men? Eyelid surgery.

Here is the breakdown by country for the year:

  1. United States — 4,064,571 (20.1%)
  2. Brazil — 2,058,505 (10.2%)
  3. Japan — 1,260,351 (6.2%)
  4. South Korea — 980,313 (4.8%)
  5. Mexico — 706,072 (3.5%)
  6. Germany — 533,622 (2.6%)
  7. France — 416,148 (2.1%)
  8. Columbia — 357,115 (1.8%)

So, if you’re contemplating a cosmetic procedure, surgical or not, call Dr. Kearney at 800-671-1951 and set up an appointment. You’re in good company!

Our office is now open!

Your health (and ours) is our highest priority so we are making a few changes to our reopening so that you can feel safe and confident coming in to see us. We are of course following all federal and local guidelines such as wearing masks and conducting phone screenings prior to your appointment but we are also implementing the following:

      Increasing the frequency of cleaning and sterilization to not only include exam rooms but also the waiting room, restroom, all doors, counters, etc.

      Offering multiple hand sanitizer locations throughout the office

      Reducing the number of appointments per day as well as our office hours, to limit the number of people in the office, including staff members

      Minimizing patient overlap to allow for proper social distancing

      Testing all surgery patients for COVID-19 at their pre-operative appointments

      Asking patients to leave family members or friends at home, unless they are coming with their primary caregiver. Please leave children at home as well


How can you help?

      Come alone to your appointment, unless you need your primary caregiver with you

      Please wear a mask or face covering to your visit and keep it on unless you are asked by Dr. Kearney or an RN to remove it

      Postpone your visit if you have traveled by air or experienced symptoms in the last 14 days

      Use a pen from the holder marked “clean” and put it in the one marked “used” when you’re done

      Use the hand sanitizers in our office

      In the rare case there is someone at the front desk when you come in please take a seat until we call you and maintain proper distance throughout your visit

      Take advantage of our virtual consultations or follow up appointments if it makes you feel more comfortable

Please bear with us as we work to return to our new “normal” and feel free to call or email with any questions. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
