Report Description

Aesthetic Medicine Market is expected to exceed the market valuation of more than US$ 19.3 billion in 2027 and is expected to grow at a significant CAGR of 10.5% during the forecast period (2021-2027). Aesthetic medicine consists of all medical procedures that aim to improve one’s physical appearance. They can be performed using non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures. Dermatologists and plastic surgeons are the main specialists in aesthetic medicines; however, other specialists also offer services to address the aesthetic needs of the patients. These procedures can be performed under local anesthesia while some do not require anesthesia at all. Plastic in plastic surgery comes from the Greek word plastikos, which means mold or to give form. This is what plastic surgery essentially is, it is a surgical specialty that enhances a person’s appearance and reconstructs their facial and body tissue defects which could be caused by trauma, illness, or can be birth disorders. Plastic surgery can be performed in any part of the anatomy except the central nervous system. The increasing cosmetic surgery culture among millennials is causing an upsurge in the aesthetic medicine market. An increase in the number of cosmetic surgery and the cultural acceptance of the procedures are also reasons for the growth in the aesthetic medicine market.


According to the American Society of Plastic Surgery, 18 million people in the United States underwent cosmetic procedures in 2018. This is almost a quarter-million more than 2017. In 2019, 15 million surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures were performed in the United States. Even though the pandemic has temporarily decreased the number of cosmetic procedures being performed, surveys show that in the long run people are now more willing to undergo cosmetic procedures than before. This growth in the acceptance of cosmetic procedures is very beneficial for the growth of the aesthetic medicine industry in the coming years.
