Breast Surgeries Continue to Trend Up

Posted On: March 15, 2019 Author: The Office of Dr. Stuart Linder Posted In: Breast Augmentation

On Monday this week, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) released new figures that showed cosmetic procedures were up in 2018 by two percent from 2017. That same morning at 5:30, I received a phone call from Mary Kekatos, health reporter for She shared the figures that the ASPS had released and asked my thoughts about breast augmentations showing a four percent increase. I told her I believed that the number of augmentations also included people wanting to revise their first procedure. I stated that this number was probably due to a higher number of revisions and explanations (ruptured implants included).

After my conversation with Mary from, I reviewed my scheduled surgeries for the upcoming Wednesday and saw this same trend regarding breast surgeries in my Beverly Hills practice.

On Wednesday, my schedule entailed a primary augmentation (gummy bear implants) patient coming in from Boston, Massachusetts. The second case was a breast revision from Oxford, Mississippi, and the third was a breast revision as well from Houston, Texas. The last breast surgery was a patient who will be flying in from New York City for gynecomastia or otherwise known as a male breast reduction.

For the past 20 years, my whole practice has been focused on the body. Based on the 2018 trends by the ASPS, I have to concur that breast augmentation of all kinds is up. I am very thankful to have the opportunity to provide breast surgeries to people from around the country.
