Liposuction is a popular cosmetic surgical procedure among Americans and recent data from the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) indicate that its popularity is also soaring worldwide. Importantly, it is not just women who are getting lipo procedures – increasing male demand for the treatment is also responsible for these trends. ISAPS data show that liposuction was the second most popular cosmetic surgery procedure worldwide in 2015 with a total of 1,394,588 procedures, retaining the rank it held in 2014 and 2013.
Last year, liposuction made up about 14.5% of the total cosmetic surgery procedures performed globally. The US was the country where the most lipo procedures were performed. A total of 240,565 procedures were performed in US which was about 17.2% of the total lipo treatments. This was followed by Brazil with 182,765 procedures and India with 88,193 procedures.
Looking at the gender-wise statistics, it is seen that a total of 1,181,074 female lipo procedures and 213,514 male lipo procedures were performed in 2015. It was the second most popular procedure in the category of female and male surgical/nonsurgical procedures.
The availability of skilled plastic surgeons who can provide personalized solutions, accredited practices that provide safe treatment environments, and advanced techniques such as laser liposuction that blend safety with efficiency are all factors that have played an important role in popularizing liposuction.
