The U.S. Isn’t the Only Country Where Plastic Surgery is Popular

The United States tops the charts when it comes to the popularity of plastic surgery. More procedures are done here than anywhere else in the world, but keep in mind that we’re also one of the biggest, wealthiest countries, and we’re hardly the only country where plastic surgery is popular.

The Independent recently released a list of the ten countries worldwide where plastic surgery is most popular. The list relies on statistics from the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS). According to ISAPS, more than 23 million cosmetic surgical and nonsurgical procedures were performed in 2013. Plastic surgery is only becoming more popular around the world as procedures improve and results become more and more natural. According to ISAPS, the ten countries performing the most plastic surgery procedures are:

  1. The United States
  2. Brazil
  3. Mexico
  4. Germany
  5. Spain
  6. Columbia
  7. Italy
  8. Venezuela
  9. Argentina
  10. Iran

The most popular cosmetic surgeries worldwide are still breast augmentations. Next on the list are liposuction, eyelid surgery, lipostructure, and rhinoplasty, in that order. According to the article by The Independent, women currently make up 90% of all plastic surgery patients, but the numbers of men showing interest – particularly in nonsurgical procedures – is on the rise. Interestingly, penis enlargement surgery is most popular in Germany. About 3,000 men received the operation in 2013. Venezuela, Spain, and Mexico are next on that list.
