The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) is busy compiling data for its forthcoming report on the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures around the world. In the meantime, Vancouver cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr. Benjamin Gelfant takes a look at the organization’s most recently released report, with a particular focus on the most popular procedures in Canada.
How Canada Compares to the Rest of the World
Of the 25 nations surveyed, Canada ranked fifteenth on the list. About 1.5 percent of the world’s cosmetic surgery procedures are performed in Canada. The United States performed the most plastic surgery procedures while Romania performed the fewest. Brazil came in second to the United States, followed by China, Japan and then Mexico.
Canada’s Top Procedures: Breast Augmentation Still the Most Common
Although internationally liposuction is the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure, in Canada, breast augmentation topped the list. Nearly 25 percent of all procedures performed in Canada were breast enhancement surgeries. Liposuction came in second, followed by tummy tuck and then eyelid surgery. Injectable Botox treatment was the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic promocedure performed everywhere, including Canada.
