Please tweet and retweet



The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons released its worldwide statistics for 2015 which are interesting for the following reasons.
world population 2015
In 2015 the USA, Brazil, Mexico and South Korea accounted for 9.6% of the world’s population.
total world breast implants saline 2015

total world breast implants silicone 2015
Yet the USA accounted for 75% of the world’s total breast implant placement and 56% of its saline breast implant placements.


total world buttock implants 2015


While brazil accounted for 26% of the world’s buttock implant placements.

total world buttock fat transfer 2015

And 21% of its buttock fat grafts.

total world abdominoplasty 2015
total world liposuction 2015






The US and Brazil accounted for 7% of the world’s population but 30% of its liposuction procedures and 17 to 18% each of the world’s tummy tucks.
total world rhinoplasty 2015
South Korea with less than 1% of the world’s population accounted for 10% of its rhinoplasties

total world eyelid surgery 2015
and 8% of its eyelid surgeries.

total world cosmetic procedures 2015

total world cosmetic surgeries 2015

The us and brazil were tops in surgical procedures but significantly more botox, fillers and other non-surgical cosmetic treatments were performed in the US. In summary for 2015 the south Koreans did proportionately more eyelid and nose surgery, the US breast and body procedures and Brazil did proportionately more buttock implants or fat grafts and body procedures. This is a reflection of what is considered better looking in each country relative to a baseline of their untreated population.
