International Plastic Surgery – which plastic surgeons work the most?
The 2014 SAPS International Survey on Aesthetic/Cosmetic Procedures  revealed some interesting findings – after compiling the data of almost 1400 plastic surgeons (worldwide). The report itself is too large to analyze in one article. The people at the Wichita Liposuction Center  took the time to analyze the data (tables & graphs) and came out with some easy to understand but surprising results.
How many procedures did a surgeon perform in 2014?
One of the interesting results of the report – is that the surveyed plastic surgeons revealed how many and what type of plastic procedures they performed. They provide answer to the question: How many procedures did the doctors of the participating countries do? Which countries have the busiest Plastic surgeons in the World?
Liposuction, Tummy Tuck dominate – Butt Augmentation on the rise
Liposuction – A Colombian plastic surgeon performs 53 liposuctions a year, a German doctor performs 47.2, while an American doctor does 38.6. A Japanese doctor does only 10 liposuction procedures a year.
Figure 1: Average number of surgical procedures per plastic surgeon
Tummy tuck (aka Abdominoplasty) – In the States a doctor performs 20.5 tummy tucks a year on average, while a Colombian colleague performs 5 more (25.6) on average per year.
A US plastic surgeon performs more Breast procedures than doctors in other countries (almost a 100 procedures a year), while in France a doctor performs 97.3 breast related surgeries a year. In Japan a doctor performs only 21 breast surgeries on average per year, while plastic surgery colleagues in South Korea perform 28.5.
Butt Augmentation: Butt Augmentation was in 2014 in the low numbers, but has gained unstoppable momentum thanks mostly to celebrities sharing pictures of their butts  on Instagram and Facebook and the viral effect it created among women of all ages – which felt encouraged to continue with the trend of posting pictures of butts (belfie – the butt selfie).
On average a Colombian doctor performs 22 buttocks augmentations a year, a Mexican doctor does 16 a year, while a doctor in the USA does only 3 of these procedures a year.
Colombian Doctors perform on average far more “Body and Extremities” related procedures (like Tummy tucks, Brazilian Butt lifts and Liposuctions) than any other doctors – 105 procedures a year. Doctors in Mexico come in second (#2), a Mexican plastic surgeon performs 85 of these procedures a year on average, while a US doctor on average performs 66 a year. It can be seen like this: A Colombian doctor performs 40% more liposuctions than a US surgeon.
So what doctors perform more surgeries per year?
Colombian plastic surgeons have more work to do: A Colombian doctor performs 265 surgical procedures a year, a German doctor lies not far behind with 260 procedures a year, Mexican – French and Brazilian doctors perform 245 a year, USA doctors 235 procedures a year, South Korean surgeons 214 and while the Japanese colleagues only 147.
Which other procedures are in demand in other countries?
Japanese doctors do 63 Eyelid surgeries a year. Compared to the 147 procedures they do a year, Eyelid correction count for 43% of the plastic procedures a Japanese doctor does. In Japan 326 K cosmetic procedures were performed in 2014, of which 139 K were Eyelid surgeries (42%).
