USA Named Top Country for Plastic Surgery

All throughout the world, more and more people are heading to their local cosmetic surgeons to get work done. Yet according to USA Today, no country is as accustomed to the idea of plastic surgery as America is. The USA is the plastic surgery capital of the world. An analysis by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons claims that Brazil is not far behind when it comes to the number of tucks, lifts, and injections given annually. While the United States sees the greatest number of cosmetic procedures per year, there are other countries that have a larger rate by population. For example, South Korea, Italy, and Greece see more plastic surgeries by population than those in the United States. In 2011, there were 10 procedures performed every 1,000 people in these countries.

Internationally, there were 6.3 million plastic surgery procedures performed and 8.3 million non-surgical procedures throughout the world in 2011. Just over 21% of those procedures were done in the United States. This amounts to about 3.1 million of all the procedures that were performed. These findings are based on procedure rates that were collected from plastic surgeons throughout the world. The top surgical procedure in the United States at present is breast augmentation, but research shows that the most common procedure internationally is lipoplasty of the removal of fat from the body by liposuction.

China is the country that performs the most nose jobs, followed by Japan and Brazil. The United States has the most plastic surgeons, but Brazil follows closely behind and China comes in third in the capacity. Shockingly, in the United Kingdom and Canada there are not even 1,000 plastic surgeons available. According to research, the USA has 5,950 plastic surgeons available to operate on the millions that ask for procedures every single year.
