The cosmetic surgery and services market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period.

According to a research article by Dana E Bregman et al., published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal July 2020, in the United States, the total surgeons' fees derived from both surgical and minimally invasive procedures in 2018 was approximately 5 billion dollars. The current pandemic had resulted in an approximately 20% decrease in collected fees, which is expected to show a negative impact on the market studied in 2020. As the COVID-19 pandemic has grown in magnitude, the safety of ablative resurfacing lasers, micro-needling, and dermatological surgery procedures has become questionable. Additionally, a slowing economy and reduced discretionary spending discourage customers from undergoing expensive cosmetic treatments, imposing a practical restriction.

The key factors propelling the growth of this market are technological advancements in devices, growing demand for minimally invasive and non-invasive procedures, and growing awareness regarding cosmetic surgery. According to the annual plastic surgery procedural statistics, in 2019, 1.8 million cosmetic surgical procedures and 16.3 million cosmetic minimally invasive procedures were performed in the United States, with a 2% increase in the number of procedures over 2018. Thus, the growing popularity of aesthetic treatment for facial enhancement is the key driver of this market.

The demand for cosmetic surgeries and minimally invasive procedures, such as botulinum toxin and facial filler injections, has increased dramatically over the past decade. It has been observed since the past few years that US citizens are spending more money on cosmetic surgeries. Market players are frequently launching technologically advanced products, which is likely to drive the segment growth during the forecast period. For instance, in 2019, Merz, one of the global player in medical aesthetics, launched the Belotero Revive, a dermal filler product containing a unique combination of hyaluronic acid (HA) and glycerol, designed to improve hydration, elasticity and firmness of the skin and to address the appearance of fine lines.Owing to these aforementioned factors, along with technological advancements in devices and growing awareness regarding cosmetic surgery, the cosmetic surgery and services market is expected to grow rapidly over the forecast period.

Key Market Trends

The Botulinum Toxin Segment is Expected to Witness the Fastest Growth in the Market

Botulinum toxin is a highly poisonous, naturally occurring substance, but has wide applications. The most common use of this toxin is in the treatment of painful muscle spasms and cosmetic treatment. Botox and Dysport are the commercial names of the botulinum toxin. In 1950, the researchers found that the minute use of this toxin helps in controlling muscle movement. Gradually, they understood that this substance is also beneficial in cosmetic treatments.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in 2020, there were 13,281,235 cosmetic minimally invasive procedures that were performed in the United States, out of which 4,401,536 were botulinum toxin procedure, and it was the number one non-surgical procedure found in 2020.

There is also increased competition in the US botulinum toxin market that is set to increase with the launch of Jeuveau. Evolus Inc. in 2019, received the US FDA approval for its lead product, Jeuveau, for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines associated with corrugator and/or procerus muscle activity in adults that was the first new botulinum toxin approved by the FDA since Merz Pharma’s XEOMIN in 2010. Botulinum toxin injection for treatment of facial wrinkles is considered the most frequently performed cosmetic procedure in the United States, and it is the number one aesthetic procedure since 1999. Hence, the use of botulinum toxins in aesthetic medicine has increased, remarkably. Botox injections are used for the treatment of frown lines, crow's feet, and horizontal forehead lines, which are the cosmetic indications approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. It offers predictable results with few adverse effects and is associated with high patient satisfaction with the rising applications of the substance, the segment is expected to experience fast growth across various regions of the world.

North America is Expected to Dominate the Market Over the Forecast Period

North America dominates the cosmetic surgery and services market, owing to the rising population pool focusing on external aesthetics and the improvements that are being done in cosmetic procedures. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), in 2020, 15.5 million cosmetic procedures were performed in the United States, out of which, 13.2 million were minimally invasive.

As per the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, there were 437,880 injectable non-surgical procedures done in Mexico in 2018, which has been increased from 346,206 in 2017. Hyaluronic acid procedures were the second-most common injectable procedure, accounting for a total of 142,217 procedures in 2018.

Currently, people in this region are spending more money on cosmetics and are eager to adopt novel cosmetic treatments this factor is giving rise to a number of market development strategies. For instance, in November 2018, the US FDA approved the hyaluronic acid dermal filler, Restylane Lyft (Galderma), for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related mid-face contour deficiencies via a small blunt tip cannula in patients over the age of 21. Moreover, in future new product approvals and launches are expected to hit the market, therefore the studied market in this region is expected to witness rapid growth.
