The Most Common Physical “Flaws” Reported by Americans. Blog By Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of NY located in Long Island and NYC

There aren’t too many people in America, or even the world, who will say they are perfect. There’s usually something (small or big) that people want to change about themselves.

Think about yourself right now – what thoughts do you have when you stand in front of the mirror in the morning? Do you ever wish your face or body was different? If so, you’re not alone.

In a recent report by The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), the most common physical “flaws” were assessed. A total of 7,322 people participated in the survey, and responses were collected from April 20, 2016 to May 1, 2016.

After assessing the results, the ASDS found that people were most concerned about excess weight. Eighty three percent wanted to lose weight in certain areas of their body. The next biggest complaint was lines and wrinkles around the eyes. Submental (neck fat/double chin) was the next biggest concern for people.

Skin texture and discoloration due to aging was also something that people found bothersome. Finally, the fifth most common physical “flaw” was the lines, wrinkles, and/or folds around the mid-face, cheeks, and mouth.
