A recent survey from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, or ASPS, has shown that the best plastic surgeons in the country are ready to learn new skills and techniques to help them keep up with demand over the next decade.

Per their latest report, 2017 was one of the busiest years for plastic surgeons to date. In fact, these experts believe that 2018 will be even busier, and they claim social media is driving demand for several popular procedures.

The Stand-Out Trends for 2017

The 2017 report showed that the average number of non-invasive procedures performed across the country has increased by some 25% since 2012, representing a huge increase in demand. What’s more, the millennial generation has embraced injectables – particularly dermal fillers and Botox – to the point that 80% of all the treatments performed in 2017 were cosmetic and non-surgical in nature. What is driving this dramatic increase in the number of non-surgical and surgical cosmetic procedures? Per Patrick Byrne, the director of the Division of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Johns Hopkins Medical Center and an AAFPRS board member, it’s all about the selfie culture.

Top Countries for Plastic Surgery

Plastic surgery is a booming industry. In fact, Americans alone spent some $11 billion on these procedures in 2013 – including Botox and other nonsurgical procedures. Worldwide, the industry tops out near $100 billion annually. There are several countries where plastic surgery is incredibly popular, and the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons can provide some insight.

#5 – Mexico

Mexico comes in at number five on the list of top countries for plastic surgery. In this country, there are 1,634 plastic surgeons, and the most popular procedures include eyelid surgery and facial fat grafting. While Mexico ranks rather low when it comes to the number of residents seeking breast augmentation, it comes in quite high for procedures performed on the body and extremities. In fact, it’s number three in the world in that category. Mexico also ranks highly in facial plastic surgeries, but falls behind again in terms of injectables, which aren’t as readily available in that country. More than 923,000 cosmetic procedures were performed in Mexico in 2016.
