The Most Popular Global Cosmetic Surgeries

Dallas, TX- When a cosmetic surgery procedure enjoys worldwide support you know it has to be effective both in making a person look more attractive and giving their self-esteem a much needed boost. Millions of people each year turn cosmetic surgery and a recent survey of plastic surgeons across the globe showed that facial plastic surgery remained among the most popular cosmetic procedures in 2012.

The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons just released the results of their third annual survey. Board certified surgeons from Brazil and the United States were instrumental in helping the ISAPS compile their results. After collecting information from these surgeons,  they were able to determine which cosmetic procedures were commonly performed. If you are curious about how they came up the results of the study please visit their website here: www.isaps.org.

The United States ranked number one with 1,094,146 cosmetic surgeries performed, with Brazil coming in at number two with a little 905,000 procedures performed. Aesthetic surgeons in China, Japan, Mexico and Italy, respectively, all recorded hundreds of thousands of cosmetic procedure performed.

While liposuction and breast augmentations ranked number one and two, eye lifts, rhinoplasty (nose jobs) and face lifts remained in the top ten most sought after cosmetic enhancements

Eye lifts are common for men and women who want to combat the signs of aging. Because this procedure can reduce the appearance of fine lines and folds or “droopy” eyelids that so often give away a person’s age, eye lifts also known as blepharoplasty, ranked third in popular procedures. Globally, an average of 703,000 eyelifts were conducted.

Of the facial cosmetic procedures, nose jobs, called rhinoplasty were the fifth most popular. Facial surgeons worldwide performed over 400,000 nose jobs. A nose that is too large, has a bump on the bridge, or bulbous tip can make a person very insecure about their appearance. These are just a few of the reasons why so many people turn cosmetic surgeons for help.

A face lift is the go to choice for men and women in their forties and fifties who want to refresh their faces and obtain a more youthful appearance. It is so effective that people who undergo this procedure can look as much as seven years younger. This procedure is so successful that over 300,000 people the world over wanted this procedure.

Chin augmentations and forehead lifts ranked in the top fifteen most requested cosmetic surgeries.
