According to a recent analysis of 2010 plastic surgery statistics, the District of Columbia has the highest number of cosmetic surgeons per capita. In second place was Maryland, followed close by Florida and New York. Numbers show that California ranked fifth with Hawaii also making the list of top ten.
The list was compiled after numbers were obtained from the U.S. Census Bureau and the American Board of Medical Specialties. Each year, a booklet is published that details the number of board certified doctors per state along with their medical specialty. After close examination of the booklet, the statistics were generated and a list was made public.
The report showed that the District of Columbia has one plastic surgeon to every 27,351 residents in the state whereas California has one plastic surgeon to every 42,286 residents. As you can see, these numbers differ immensely, but states on the East and West Coast continue to rank high in terms of the number of plastic surgery procedures performed annually.
