Procedures like Liposuction and Breast Augmentation Make Sacramento 3rd in Cosmetic Surgery

Share Article

Men's Health magazine recently published a poll examining the popularity of cosmetic surgery among the residents of 100 metropolitan areas across the country. Sacramento, California ranked third in the poll. Sacramento plastic surgeon Dr. Scott Green attributes the area's high ranking to the popularity of surgical procedures like breast augmentation, liposuction, and "mommy makeovers."

According to the September 2008 issue of Men's Health magazine, Sacramento ranks third in the nation when it comes to the popularity of plastic surgery. The results were somewhat surprising - San Francisco ranked 1st, followed by Honolulu, and then Sacramento, while New York and Los Angeles trailed at 39th and 48th respectively. According to Sacramento plastic surgeon Dr. Scott Green (, the city's high ranking is likely due to the popularity of procedures like breast augmentation, liposuction, and "mommy makeovers" among area residents.

"The fact that Sacramento far outranks cities such as Los Angeles and New York in a poll like this one is likely to surprise most people," says Dr. Green. "But it attests to the fact that celebrities certainly are not the only ones having plastic surgery. Cosmetic procedures are ideal for a wide range of people who just want to look and feel their very best, and Sacramento residents understand that."

The Men's Health study examined regional rates for common plastic surgery procedures, as well as information from plastic surgeons, cosmetic dentists, and patients in order to rank metropolitan areas across the country by the popularity of plastic surgery in those areas. According to the poll, the most commonly performed surgical procedure across the country is breast augmentation; it's also Sacramento's most popular procedure.

"Women choose breast augmentation for a variety of reasons," adds Dr. Green. "Some want to restore breast fullness after pregnancy or weight loss, others want to have a more feminine physique, and some are hoping to create a more natural breast symmetry. There are a number of implant options and surgical techniques available for my Sacramento breast augmentation patients, meaning that the procedure can be customized to fit each patient's anatomy and plastic surgery goals."

Other popular procedures performed by this Sacramento plastic surgeon include liposuction, eyelid surgery, and nose surgery. The popularity of each of these procedures among Sacramento residents likely played a key role in the city ranking third in plastic surgery because they appeal to both men and women.

Another procedure that is gaining popularity among Sacramento women in particular is the "mommy makeover," which combines breast enhancement and body contouring procedures to help women regain their pre-pregnancy bodies. Most mommy makeovers consist of a combination of 2 to 4 separate procedures, usually including liposuction, tummy tuck, breast lift, and/or breast augmentation.

"It's an honor to practice plastic surgery in an area where it is in such high demand," says Dr. Green. "No matter what procedure their procedure interest - liposuction, a mommy makeover, breast augmentation - my Sacramento patients know that I am committed to helping them get the look they want while maintaining the utmost in patient safety and comfort."
