The increasing demand for skin care is driving the fast-growing Cosmetics industry.

An American Society of Plastic Surgeons report states that Americans are spending more than $16 billion on plastic cosmetic surgeries in 2017, the most the U.S. has ever spent on operations.

Breast enhancement surgeries, especially breast implants, outpaced other surgeries with nearly 3,00,000 operations nationwide. Breast augmentations and the 2,23,018 nose reshaping surgeries both benefitted doctors more than a billion dollars in the year 2016. Liposuction also remains at the top, with 2,35,237 surgeries across the U.S. costing around $750 million. Those of the age group 35 to 50 years are the most likely to have surgeries, accounting for 39 percent of all procedures in 2017.

In 2016, the cosmetic surgery market value was 26 billion U.S. dollars. And by 2026, it is expected to hike up to 46 billion dollars.

The industry was worth £750 million in the UK in 2005, £2.3 billion in 2010 and is forecast to reach £3.6 billion by 2015.
