Do You Wonder Who’s Having What Done and Where?

Plastic Surgery San Diego, CAEveryone knows that the aesthetic industry is growing and growing. You can tell by the way cosmetic procedures have made their way into daily entertainment and conversations. Shows on TV, cover stories in Time magazine, segments on local news shows, your neighbor showing off a recent surgery.

It’s also interesting to see where procedures are done and what is being done. This is where the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) comes in. The organization compiles statistics from around the world for the industry. When they released the statistics from 2016 late this summer, the numbers showed a 9% increase in surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures in 2016.

Here are some other highlights of the 2016 ISAPS statistics.

Who have the most procedures?

It’s interesting to note that just five countries account for over 41% of the world’s cosmetic procedures: USA, Brazil, Japan, Italy, and Mexico, while some countries such as Sweden and Norway don’t even make it into the top 25.

Here are the top 10 countries, with the number of procedures:

  1. USA — 4,217862, 17.9%
  2. Brazil — 2,524,115, 10.7%
  3. Japan — 1,137,976, 4.8%
  4. Italy — 957,814, 4.1%
  5. Mexico — 923,243, 3.9%
  6. Russia — 896,629, 3.8%
  7. India — 878,180, 37%
  8. Turkey — 789,564, 3.3%
  9. Germany — 730,437, 3.1%
  10. France — 517,731, 2.2%

What’s the most popular procedure?

Breast augmentation was once again the world’s most popular cosmetic surgery, accounting for 15.8% of all surgical procedures. Liposuction was second at 14% of all procedures, eyelid surgery third (12.9%), nose surgery (7.6%), and tummy tucks (7.4%).

On the non-surgical side, it’s no contest. Botox and other botulinum toxin brands were injected 4,627,752 times, a 7% increase over 2015.

What’s the fastest growing procedure?

Labiaplasty increased 45% over 2015 numbers. Next fastest growing were lower body lifts, upper body lifts, breast augmentation with fat transfer, and the butt lift.

What’s the difference between the sexes?

Women accounted for 86.2%, or 20,362,655 cosmetic procedures worldwide. For women, the five most popular procedures were breast augmentation, liposuction, eyelid surgery, abdominoplasty, and breast lift.

Men accounted for 13.8% of cosmetic procedures, 3,264,254 procedures. For men, the top five were eyelid surgery, gynecomastia, nose surgery, liposuction, and hair transplant.
