[:en]ISAPS 2014 Global Statistics [:]

[:en]Now that we’ve all recovered from World Cup 2014 hysteria (at least here in the United States), it’s time for aesthetic procedure hysteria! The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ISAPS) recently announced their 2013 statistics. These numbers are compiled from data obtained from aesthetic surgeons around the world. The results showed that there were more than 23 million surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures performed around the world in 2013, with over 11 million surgical procedures and almost 12 million non-surgical procedures.
Not only did Brazil outshine us in soccer (again), they also out-performed the United States in the number of total surgical procedures last year. However, the United States had the greatest number of combined surgical and non-surgical procedures. Following the United States were Brazil, Mexico, Germany, and Spain. The most popular cosmetic surgical procedures were breast augmentation, liposuction, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), lipostructure (including fat grafting), and rhinoplasty (nasal surgery). The most popular non-surgical procedures were botulinum toxin, fillers, laser hair removal, and non-invasive facial rejuvenation. Among women, the most commonly performed procedures were breast augmentation, liposuction, blepharoplasty, lipostructure, and breast lift. Among men, who made up 12.8% of the total number of patients represented, the top five procedures were rhinoplasty, breast reduction for gynecomastia, blepharoplasty, liposuction, and otoplasty (ear reshaping surgery).
Because cosmetic breast surgery forms such a large part of my practice, I was pleased to see that the United States narrowly edged out Brazil for the highest number of breast procedures performed worldwide (15% to 14.9%!), followed by Mexico, Germany, and Venezuela. It’s fascinating that neither Argentina, France nor Italy made it to the list of top five countries in any category. Hmm….

**This data was compiled by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), the leading international society for aesthetic plastic surgery with more than 2,700 board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeon members in 95 countries. The rankings are based solely on those countries from which a sufficient survey response was received and for whom data were considered to be representative.[:fr]Now that we’ve all recovered from World Cup 2014 hysteria (at least here in the United States), it’s time for aesthetic procedure hysteria!
