Women continue to be the most likely candidates for facial plastic surgery. In 2008, approximately 84 percent of patients seeking facial plastic surgery were female. The most common cosmetic surgical procedures undergone by women were facelifts (average of 55 procedures per surgeon) and blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery (45 procedures), which includes surgery of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. This procedure was in high demand for women looking to rejuvenate the appearance of the eye area and reduce drooping and puffiness in the lid.
