Dr. Renato Saltz, President-Elect of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) is pleased to share with you the 2014 Global Aesthetics statistics.
In 2014, you could have taken the entire population of Australia and performed a cosmetic procedure (surgical and non-surgical) on every one of them. And you still would have had a few Botox sessions and tummy tucks left over.
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).
What were the top five cosmetic surgeries performed?
- Eyelid Surgery = 1,427,451
- Liposuction = 1,372,901
- Breast Augmentation = 1,348,197
- Fat Grafting = 965,727
- Rhinoplasty = 849,445
And the top five non-surgical procedures?
- Botulinum Toxin = 4,830,911
- Hyaluronic Acid = 2,690,633
- Hair Removal = 1,277,581
- Chemical Peel = 493,043
- Laser Skin Resurfacing = 480,271
Women accounted for 86.3% of the total, with more than 17 million procedures. Men had 2.5 million procedures, 12.7% of the total. The most popular for women? Breast augmentation. Men? Eyelid surgery.
Here is the breakdown by country for the year:
- United States — 4,064,571 (20.1%)
