ISAPS Global Statistics
SAPS surveys plastic surgeons throughout the world to provide statistics about the number and type of aesthetic (cosmetic) procedures they performed over a one-year period. Studies are performed for the previous year so that data for the entire year is available. ISAPS is the only organization that collects this data on a global scale.
ISAPS Global Statistics

More than 23 million cosmetic surgical and nonsurgical procedures were performed worldwide in 2013, according to statistics released today by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), the leading international society for aesthetic plastic surgery with more than 2,700 board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeon members in 95 countries. For the first time, Brazil edges out the United States in terms of the number of surgical procedures performed, and Botulinum Toxin takes the number one position for number of overall cosmetic procedures performed.
As ISAPS prepares to host its 22nd Biennial Congress in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in September, this new data will spark debate among the surgeons gathering from 75 countries to share new techniques and discuss cutting-edge information about this expanding field.
Since our last survey was conducted, we have improved our strategy for gathering data based on statistically sound samples, noted Carlos Uebel, MD, ISAPS president. This has been an effort on the part of our society to further enhance our survey methodology and make it more comprehensive, he continued.
