The global cosmetic surgery market size was valued at USD 55.68 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow from USD 57.67 billion in 2023 to USD 75.20 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 3.9% during the forecast period.

The popularity of cosmetic procedures among the general population to improve their aesthetic appearance is increasing each year. Furthermore, the growing prevalence of dermatological conditions and presence of a large patient pool requiring treatment are boosting the demand for such procedures in the market.

  • According to the data published by the British Skin Foundation in 2020, nearly 60% of people were suffering from some kind of skin condition in the U.K.

However, the availability of innovative technologies and devices for treating skin conditions as well as improving reimbursement policies for cosmetic procedures will increase the number of patients undergoing these surgeries. Furthermore, several people are preferring easy, pain-free methods for appearing youthful and healthy without complications. This factor is increasing the demand for non-surgical procedures.

Additionally, key players in the market are focusing on new product developments and receiving approvals to strengthen their market position. For example, in June 2020, Cynosure launched the Elite iQ aesthetic workstation for laser hair removal and skin revitalization in the U.S., Europe, and Australia. This launch reinforced the company’s position in the market.

Furthermore, growing demand for medical tourism, where people travel from other countries for various cosmetic procedures, and the emergence of new cosmetic clinics are expected to fuel the cosmetic surgery market growth during the forecast period.


Declining Number of Cosmetic Procedures during COVID-19 Pandemic Hindered Market Growth

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in reduced demand for various cosmetic procedures across the world. Many countries' governments had instructed to postpone elective and non-essential surgeries to reallocate their healthcare resources to manage COVID-19. The stoppage of elective surgical procedures and disruption of supply chains for required materials during the pandemic led to decreased cosmetic procedures.

  • According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), in March 2020, board-certified plastic surgeons stopped performing elective surgical procedures for an average of 8.1 weeks due to COVID-19.

Due to the slowdown of elective surgical procedures in 2020, the total number of cosmetic surgeries performed decreased compared to the previous year. This factor affected the sales of various cosmetic surgery-related products, and many key players reported a decline in their product sales. For example, Bausch Health Companies Inc. reported a 6.7% decline in total revenue during 2020, while its ortho dermatologic segment reported a decline of 3% during 2020.

The ease of lockdown restrictions, increasing demand for home care-based procedures, and focus on introducing advanced products to meet the demand are expected to drive the market from 2023-2030.

  • In July 2022, LightStim launched Elipsa, the first device to offer dual treatment options for treating acne and wrinkles using LED-based technology. This device can be used at home by the users.

Increasing Demand for Cosmetic Procedures among Male Population to Propel Market Growth

The popularity and adoption of cosmetic procedures among the male population are increasing annually due to age-related concerns, and men are adopting these solutions to maintain their youthful look. Moreover, the increasing demand for non-surgical procedures, such as dermal fillers and botulinum toxin among the male population is raising the number of treatments performed and contributing toward the market’s growth.

  • According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), in 2020, globally, around 3.4 million cosmetic procedures were performed on men.

Also, the top surgical and non-surgical treatments that men undergo are eyelid surgery, liposuction, gynecomastia, rhinoplasty, botulinum toxin, and hair removal.

  • According to the data published by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) in 2020, around 225,177 liposuction, 905,958 botulinum toxin, and 298,070 hair removal were performed on men. They were also among the most common procedures among the male population.

The above factors are resulting in the higher demand for cosmetic procedures among the male population.


Rising Focus on Improving Aesthetic Features to Fuel Market Growth

In recent years, the demand for cosmetic procedures has gradually changed as aesthetics has become an important aspect of daily life. The rise in population focusing on aesthetic features has generated promising prospects for the market.

Women’s inclination toward cosmetic procedures, such as breast augmentation, liposuction, eyelid surgery, abdominoplasty, breast lift, and others, is increasing the demand for cosmetic treatments in the market. According to a survey conducted by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) in 2020, women accounted for 86% of all cosmetic procedures across the world.

More patients are opting for minimally invasive cosmetic procedures over conventional surgeries. People choose non-surgical procedures due to their various advantages such as reduced recovery time, less pain, decreased healthcare costs, and others.

  • According to data published by the Aesthetic Society in 2021, in the U.S., around 4.5 million non-surgical cosmetic procedures were performed out of 6.8 million cosmetic treatments conducted across the world.

The factors mentioned above, along with increase in research & development investments and new product launches by key players, are further driving the growth of the market.


Complications Associated with Cosmetic Procedures to Restrict Market Growth

The growing popularity of aesthetic procedures in countries, such as the U.S., Germany, Brazil, and others, is increasing the number of cosmetic procedures performed. However, there are many complications associated with the treatment, which can negatively affect the market growth.

The procedures carried out by non-physicians in salons, spas, and other non-medical settings are increasing the risk of these complications. Some common complications of aesthetic procedures include scars, swelling, infections, and nerve damage, among others.

  • For example, common side effects of cosmetic treatments include hematoma, which occurs in around 2-4% of patients undergoing breast augmentation. A hematoma is a blood pocket resembling a large, painful bruise.

  • According to the Archives of Plastic Surgery, seroma can occur following a tummy tuck operation in 15-30% of patients. It is a condition wherein serum pools occur beneath the surface of the skin, resulting in swelling and pain.

Moreover, the side effects caused by using facial fillers is another major factor restricting the market growth. Some of the common complications include redness, skin pigmentation, bruising, crooked smile, inflammatory reaction, and others.

Safety concern arises in people’s minds and this makes them reluctant to undergo cosmetic procedures. This factor has limited the demand for cosmetic surgeries. Moreover, the high costs associated with these operations will negatively impact the market growth.
