You may be surprised to learn that almost half (41%) of the world’s plastic surgery procedures take place in just five countries: the United States, Brazil, Japan, Italy and Mexico. These countries are followed by Russia, India, Turkey, Germany and France.

More interesting facts revealed from this annual study:
In 2016, labiaplasty (female genital plastic surgery) showed the largest increase in number of procedures from 2015, followed by breast augmentation using fat transfer and the Brazilian Butt Lift.
Breast augmentation continued to be the world’s most popular cosmetic procedure, trailed by laser liposuction, eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).
Women continue to drive the demand for cosmetic procedures, accounting for 86.2%, procedures worldwide. The five most popular procedures requested by women are breast augmentation liposuction, eyelid surgery, abdominoplasty and breast lift.
However, in 2016, men accounted for 13.8% of cosmetic patients worldwide, and that percentage is growing. Their top five cosmetic procedures include eyelid surgery, gynecomastia (male breast reduction), rhinoplasty, laser liposuction and hair transplant.
