ISAPS announces: Cosmetic Enhancements are getting more popular
Its a fact that no one can deny anymore! The number of people turning to the option of plastic surgery while desperately trying to achieve aesthetic perfection is growing! International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons announced that more than 14.7m peels, jabs, lifts and tucks were carried out by certified by plastic surgeons during 2011!
How was this number estimated? ISAPS got survey data by certified plastic surgeon and combined them with number of surgeons per country! Another interesting fact is that almost half of the treatments were non invasive (treating wrinkles etc) and almost 3 millions are for Botox!
Cosmetic enhancement was supposed to be more common in United States but the results of the search show that Korea, Greece and Italy come first, which is even more impressive if you take into consideration the fact the two of them (Italy and Greece) are in the midst of terrible recession!
The same research showed that the most common surgical procedure is fat removal (liposuction, tummy tuck etc) which clearly shows that we live in a fattening world! Second come the breast augmentation procedures (they are pretty popular in Brazil and USA)! Finally, rhinoplasty and other nose jobs are pretty popular in Asia (Japan, China and South Korea are among the top 5 worlds in rhinoplasty)!
