Cosmetic surgery overseas: which countries and what procedures are most popular?
We don’t know which cosmetic procedures are most popular overseas, as statistics are not collected at this time. However, a recent survey of Specialist Plastic Surgeons in Australia suggested that a substantial number of breast surgeries are being performed overseas. Breast surgery has also been found to be the most common kind of surgery requiring corrective treatment. Some of the countries to which patients commonly travel for cosmetic surgery include Thailand, Malaysia and South America.
