America and South Korea in the Lead

In 2013, Americans lead the overall totals with 13.8 million cosmetic procedures, the majority of which were minimally invasive procedures, such as Botox injections. While the US had the most procedures, South Korea had the highest proportion of its population having surgery with 1 in 77 people going under the knife. One of the most popular surgical procedures is double eyelid surgery, which reduces excess skin in the upper eyelid to make the eyes appear bigger and make them look more 'Western'.
