This increase in the number of plastic surgeries have been reported by American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
"While the rate of economic recovery in the US is still uncertain, 2011 proved to be a good year for plastic surgery," said American Society of Plastic Surgeons president Malcolm Roth.
"Consumer confidence was up, auto sales rose 10 percent, so it is not surprising that we would also see increased demand for plastic surgery procedures."
Reduced invasive procedures caused the increase of 6% to almost 12.2 million procedures in 2011. Among the popular protocols were Botox injections, chemical peels, laser hair removal and soft tissue fillers to remove laugh lines and wrinkles.
