Some 11.36 million plastic surgery procedures were carried out worldwide, according to data from the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery or ISAPS. That represents a 7.1 percent increase on 2018 and a 20.6 percent increase on 2015. In addition, a further 13.6 million nonsurgical procedures were documented around the world in 2019.
Some nations tend to be more keen to go under the knife than others and Brazil was the country with the highest number of procedures for which reliable data was available. Around 1.49 million plastic surgery procedures were conducted in the country that year with Liposuction, Breast Augmentation and Abdominoplasty the most common. The United States came second with 1.35 million plastic surgery procedures. Preference was generally similar to Brazil, though Breast Augmentation came first, followed by Liposuction and then Abdominoplasty.
