Most Popular Cosmetic Procedures by Country – Pearl Recovery Retreat and Wellness
Pearl Recovery Retreat and Wellness treats countless post-op patients in our cosmetic surgery care center every year. While we see plenty of different types of cosmetic procedures being done for all sort of different reasons, we wondered what the most popular ones would be outside of the United States. We’ve just picked a few at random, so check back on our blog in the future for more examples.
Do different countries have a preference when it comes to cosmetic surgery? Are different operations more or less popular in different parts of the world? Pearl Recovery Retreat and Wellness explores the topic below.
We’ll start at home. Currently, the most popular types of cosmetic surgery in the USA are breast augmentation and liposuction. Most of the cosmetic surgeries in the US take place in coastal population centers – New York, LA (home of Pearl Recovery Retreat and Wellness) and Miami, with the third entry on the list actually having the highest number of cosmetic surgeons.
Brazil has become one of the top countries for cosmetic surgery in the world. Cosmetic surgery is often seen as a status symbol in Brazil, and elective cosmetic surgery even benefits from a tax waiver to help pay for the cost. Like the US, breast augmentation and liposuction remain the most popular.
Italy is another country at the top of the list when it comes to cosmetic surgery, but the type of procedure is a little different. While liposuction in Italy remains one of the most popular forms, Botox injections to reduce wrinkles in the skin takes the place of breast augmentation.
South Korea has seen an immense spike cosmetic surgery in the last few years. The most common form of cosmetic surgery is blepharoplasty, or in simpler terms, eyelid surgery. We see all kinds of cosmetic surgery and surgery recovery at Pearl Recovery Retreat and Wellness, and eyelid surgery is no different. Rhinoplasty is also common in South Korea, along with liposuction, which appears to be the most consistently popular surgical augmentation across the world.
