If you’re wondering how people in different nations relate to plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures, you’ll be interested in some new statistics that have been featured on Medical Daily. It seems that a more open-minded view of procedures has led to the already huge worldwide market expanding by 8.3 percent in 2016. The amount of money being spent worldwide is projected as growing to $12.8 billion by 2020.
Now, if you’re wondering which countries see the most plastic surgery, the U.S. still reigns supreme, followed by Brazil and South Korea. The most popular procedures differ by region. Here in the Americas, breast augmentation and liposuction were the most frequent patient choices, while our Asian friends leaned towards facial procedures such as eye lifts and rhinoplasties (nose jobs). Meanwhile, non-surgical procedures such as injectables like Botox are blowing up big time. Men around the world are also starting to catch up with women and are getting more and more procedures.
Technology has made the world a smaller place, so it’s no surprise that the same kind of cultural changes that have made plastic surgery a popular choice in the United States have been spreading to places like Asia and Latin America for decades. People around the world are realizing that, if you’d like to improve some aspect of your appearance, there’s every reason to look seriously at the rapidly increasing number of options that are now available.
