The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery just released the results of their analysis on Plastic Surgery worldwide in 2011. Apparently it took them longer than a year to get all of the data in. Here are seven interesting facts they found:
1) The U.S. has the MOST plastic surgery of the 25 countries included in the study. We had about 1.1 million surgical procedures and 2 million non-surgical procedures in 2011. Brazil was second, China was third. Romania was last.
2) The most popular plastic surgeries WORLDWIDE are liposuction, breast augmentations, eyelid modifications, tummy tucks, and nose jobs.
3) The five most common plastic surgeries in the U.S. (in order) are breast augmentations, liposuction, tummy tucks, eyelid modifications, and breast lifts.
4) The five most common non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the U.S. are Botox, lip injections, laser hair removal, microdermabrasion, laser removal of age spots.
5) Of the 19 major surgical procedures, buttock lifts were the LEAST popular worldwide.
6) There were 2,440 vaginal rejuvenations in the U.S. in 2011, making it the LEAST common of the major cosmetics surgeries. Brazil had the most vaginal rejuvenations BY FAR, with 9,043. China was second, with half that many.
7) There were 14,102 male breast reductions in the U.S. If we can use these numbers to roughly gauge which countries have the most man-boobed men, Brazil is first, then China, the U.S., Japan, and Italy. Canada had the FEWEST.
(For what it's worth, penile enlargements WEREN'T included in this study. They WERE included in the 2010 study. No word on why they didn't make the cut this year.)
