The Most Popular Places for Plastic Surgery Around the Globe

This just in: new data from an annual survey released by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ISAPS) paints a global portrait of the places where cosmetic procedures are most popular.

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.

Here’s how the data breaks down:

  • 1. The United States ranks number one for the number of overall procedures performed - a whopping 4.2 million each year. In the US the most popular procedure continues to be breast augmentation, followed by laser liposuction.
  • 2. Brazil comes in second with 2.5 million of the world’s plastic surgery procedures. Brazil’s most popular requests include breast augmentation, abdominal procedures such as the tummy tuck and laser lipo, and, of course, the Brazilian butt lift, which adds volume and curves to the backside.
  • 3. Japan is accountable for 1.1 million procedures, with blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) ranking as the most popular procedure.
  • 4. Italy comes in fourth at just over 955,000 procedures, with laser liposuction coming in at number one.
  • 5. Finally Mexico follows closely behind Italy at 923,000 with laser liposuction being the first choice.

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.
