The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) released its global survey this year, which made Worldwide Plastic Surgery Statistics available for the first time.
In the survey, ISAPS announced Mexico as one of the top 5 destinations for cosmetic surgery.
While for the past ten years, the most popular surgical and non surgical procedure worldwide was breast augmentation, the 2010 study revealed new trends.
According to the article released by ISAPS, the Global Survey “reveals a new trend with liposuction representing 18.8% of all surgical procedures, followed by breast augmentation at 17%, and blepharoplasty (upper or lower eyelid lift) at 13.5%, rhinoplasty (nose reshaping) at 9.4% and abdominoplasty (“Tummy Tuck”) at 7.3%.
The popularity of surgical procedures varied by country with Brazil, the United States, China and Mexico, listed as top countries for the top five procedures.
“The countries where non surgical procedures were performed were dominated by the United States, Brazil, Mexico and China and to a lesser extent by Japan, Hungary, South Korea, India and Germany.”
