Life in Plastic: Arizona Among States Obsessed with Plastic Surgery

Fact Checked by Michael Peters

When it comes to self care and wanting to look your best no matter your age, people in Arizona are looking for all kinds of ways to make that happen.

In fact, the Grand Canyon State ranks among the highest when it comes to looking into plastic surgery options.

As Botox Cosmetic Day arrives on the third Wednesday of November, BetArizona.com took a break from Arizona sports betting and used Google Trends to find each state’s average RSV (relative search volume) for the terms “botox,” “rhinoplasty,” “liposuction,” “lip fillers,” “abdominoplasty,” and “breast augmentation” between the dates Nov. 8, 2022 and Nov. 8, 2023 and ranked them accordingly. Then BetArizona.com ranked each procedure’s popularity within Arizona using Google Trends interest ranking from the same time period.

Arizonans Love to Look Good

Arizona ranks fifth in the nation with an average search volume of 79.8. Florida ranks No. 1 at 86.3, followed by California (81.6), Utah (81.2) and Nevada (80.8).

In fact, Botox is the No. 1 procedure searched for by Arizonans with an 80 search volume. Rhinoplasty, or a nose job, is next, followed by breast augmentation and abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck.

But what should you be looking for when searching for a plastic surgeon? A quick look at Arizona and plastic surgery yields an astonishing amount of doctors and clinics hoping to grab your attention. It can seem overwhelming.

Relying on word of mouth, people you know is a great place to start. But in place of that, the Arizona Society of Plastic Surgeons has a few recommendations. They suggest you make sure the surgeon has been certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Since 1941, the ABPS has qualified each member by requiring training, and it’s one of 24 medical boards certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties.

One way to make sure the doctor you’re choosing has the training is to check www.certificationmatters.org, to verify the credentials. Also, as with any medical procedure, it’s often best to get a second opinion before deciding on your best option.

Medifind.com also has a few ways to search for the right plastic surgeons based on relevance, rating and distance. One of the best ways to evaluate the doctors is by looking at those who have videos. That can give you a sense of the doctor’s personality and approach.

And if you’re looking for trusted insight on Arizona betting apps, BetArizona.com is your home for reviews, promos and more.
