Cosmetic procedures globally

There are both surgical and nonsurgical options for cosmetic procedures. Surgical procedures include augmentation mammaplasty (breast augmentation), mastopexy, lipoplasty and rhinoplasty, to name a few. Minimally invasive, nonsurgical procedures can include botulinum toxin (Botox), chemical peels, dermal fillers and tattoo removal. The top surgical cosmetic procedure globally in 2017 was breast augmentation, followed by liposuction. During that same year the top nonsurgical cosmetic procedure was botulinum toxin (Botox) followed by hyaluronic acid (dermal fillers).
