Popular Plastic Surgeries by Country

Most Rhinoplasty Procedures

Who wants a nose job? Iran does! According to the UK’s Daily Mail, Iranians book 7 times more rhinoplasty procedures than the US. Why? Thank magazines and Hollywood images of what they want us to believe are the hottest women and men in the world, with their perfect noses and perfect lives. The ironic part is that many of the “hottest men and women” have had nose jobs! However, the average person would not be able to detect the difference if the plastic surgeon performs the procedure correctly.

Most Breast Augmentations (includes Breast Implants)

Ever wonder which country has the most breast augmentations? Ding, ding, ding! You probably guessed it: United States. According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 313, 700 breast augmentation surgeries were performed in the US. Breast augmentation includes a variety of procedures designed to enhance the breasts.

Most Liposuction and Tummy Tucks

Reports from the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery say Brazil leads the world in liposuction, but the US beats out Brazil for the number of tummy tucks, also known by actual doctors as abdominoplasty.

Most Brazilian Butt Lifts

From the same source, doctors reported 7 times more procedures performed on the derriere in Brazil than the average of any other country. The Brazilian butt lift isn’t just a clever name… it’s a lifestyle.

Interesting fact: Did you know Brazilians are eligible for tax deductions for elective plastic surgeries? Now that’s what I call having your country’s support!

Most Blepharoplasty Procedures

Of course, we can’t forget about countries such as South Korea, China, and Thailand, which lead the world in eyelid procedures. Per capita, they take the prize for the most blepharoplasty procedures, which aims to improve the appearance of the eyelids.

In East Asian countries take eyelid surgery much more seriously than others. It’s done to “Westernize” their faces as the Western countries have been known to have a large influence in many of these types of personal decisions, including fashion.

In Conclusion

In short, the US has a tremendous amount of power on the way people across the globe view themselves. This is why many tourists, visitors, and foreigners will actually fly into plastic surgeons (mainly residing in Beverly Hills) to improve the quality of their life through professional procedures.

Dr. Golshani offers a fly-in program known as destination surgery for this reason.
