According to a recent analysis by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, the USA remains the leader in plastic surgery when it comes to sheer numbers of nips, tucks, implants and lifts. Brazil came in at a close second.

Plastic surgery rates by population are higher in Italy, Greece and South Korea, where more than 10 percent were performed or every 1,000 residents during 2011.

The international report, based on surveys of 996 plastic surgeons from around the world, covered 6.3 million surgeries and 8.3 million non-surgical procedures, including laser hair removal, BOTOX and chemical peels. Just over 21 percent were one in the United States. That’s 3.1 million procedures.

Breast augmentation is the most popular surgery in the US, while tummy tucks and liposuction are the most popular in the world. The study also confirmed that the US has the most plastic surgeons, with 5,950 doctors in the country.
