The report also covers surgical procedures such as breast augmentation (breast surgery) as well as non-surgical procedures such as Botox treatments. Since 2000 Botox has been the most popular cosmetic nonsurgical procedure. Botox gained FDA approval for cosmetic use in 2002.

Surgical procedures accounted for 17% of the total number of procedures and 61% of the total expenditures, with nonsurgical procedures making up 83% of the total number of procedures and 39% of total expenditures.
