RealSelf announced the RealSelf 2021 Most Worth It Ranking—a comprehensive list of the top-rated cosmetic procedures to watch in the new year. This list reveals the 20 Most Worth It procedures of the year, as determined by real patients on RealSelf.com. The RealSelf Worth It Rating is a proprietary consumer satisfaction score based on thousands of reviews from consumers on RealSelf who, after undergoing a treatment, rated it as "Worth It" or "Not Worth It."

In comparison to past rankings, there are a few unpredicted procedure contenders that vied for the Most Worth It 2021 in both the nonsurgical and surgical categories. Weight loss is front and center, as sleeve gastrectomy achieved a 100% Worth It Rating. Breast surgeries continue to dominate the list, accounting for eight of the Most Worth It 2021 list. Breast implant removal and breast reduction procedures both accumulated a 98% Worth It Rating. This year, two injectables made the Most Worth It 2021 list, with Dysport (96% Worth It Rating) earning the spot as the top-ranking cosmetic injectable, followed by Botox, which is #18 (94% Worth it Rating).

"During an unprecedented year, consumers relied on RealSelf more than ever to gain valuable insights they can trust, including how satisfied real patients are with their cosmetic procedure results," says James Coyle, CEO of RealSelf. "Our annual Most Worth It list highlights the best of the best, with a straightforward look at the top-rated aesthetic procedures — based solely on Worth It Ratings from real patients."
