2014 — The Year of Over 20 Million Cosmetic Procedures

Last year turned out to be another banner year for the ever-expanding aesthetic world. In fact, if you want some perspective, imagine every person in Australia “having something done”. That’s right, over 20 million procedures were performed according to the 2014 statistics put out earlier this summer by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS).

Maybe that’s why Time Magazine devoted one of its June cover stories to the industry (see this post).

Here’s a breakdown of the ISAPS numbers.
