If You’re Having “Something Done” You’re in Good Company

Cosmetic ProceduresIn 2014, you could have taken the entire population of Australia (not counting the koala bears, however) and performed a cosmetic procedure (surgical and non-surgical) on every one of them. And you still would have had a few Botox sessions and tummy tucks left over.

That’s how many cosmetic procedures were performed in 2014 — over 20 million — according to statistics released this summer by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS).

Obviously, with the growth of injectables, non-surgical procedures led the way.

Here are the top five non-surgical procedures

  • Botulinum Toxin = 4,830,911
  • Hyaluronic Acid = 2,690,633
  • Hair Removal = 1,277,581
  • Chemical Peel = 493,043
  • Laser Skin Resurfacing = 480,271

Here are the top five cosmetic surgeries performed

  • Eyelid Surgery = 1,427,451
  • Liposuction = 1,372,901
  • Breast Augmentation = 1,348,197
  • Fat Grafting = 965,727
  • Rhinoplasty = 849,445

Women accounted for 86.3% of the total, with more than 17 million procedures. Men had 2.5 million procedures, 12.7% of the total. The most popular for women? Breast augmentation. Men? Eyelid surgery.

Here is the breakdown by country for the year:

  1. United States — 4,064,571 (20.1%)
  2. Brazil — 2,058,505 (10.2%)
  3. Japan — 1,260,351 (6.2%)
  4. South Korea — 980,313 (4.8%)
  5. Mexico — 706,072 (3.5%)
  6. Germany — 533,622 (2.6%)
  7. France — 416,148 (2.1%)
  8. Columbia — 357,115 (1.8%)
