How many people opted to have a cosmetic procedure, either surgical or non-surgical, in 2014? Well, you could have taken the entire population of Australia and performed a cosmetic procedure on every one of them. And you still would have had a few Botox sessions and tummy tucks left over. Holy koala bears!
That’s how many cosmetic procedures were performed in 2014 — over 20 million — according to statistics released July 9 by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS).
So, which country had the most? You know the answer to that one, but here are the top eight countries:
United States — 4,064,571 (20.1%)
Brazil — 2,058,505 (10.2%)
Japan — 1,260,351 (6.2%)
South Korea — 980,313 (4.8%)
Mexico — 706,072 (3.5%)
Germany — 533,622 (2.6%)
France — 416,148 (2.1%)
Columbia — 357,115 (1.8%)
And it appears the eyes and the areas around them are very popular with both surgical and non-surgical procedures.
