Most Popular Cosmetic Procedures in India

The most popular cosmetic plastic surgery operation in India in year 2009 according to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons was liposuction (117,000 procedures) with breast augmentation (110,000 procedures) coming in at a very close second.

However, if all cosmetic breast operations (breast augmentation, breast lift, female breast reduction, male gynecomastia reduction) were considered, that category (200,000 total procedures) overwhelmed liposuction by a large margin.

Hair transplantation is unusually popular in India. At nearly three times the number of performed in China (the number two country for this operation), India accounts for nearly 40% of all hair transplants performed worldwide.

Due to the fashion standard in India of wearing long and heavy earrings, cosmetic surgery to repair a torn ear lobe is common.

The second and third most popular cosmetic surgeries performed on the face are rhinoplasty nose reshaping and blepharoplasty eyelid surgery. However, neither of these procedures in India bears more than a slight resemblance to the surgical methods used in East Asia.

Non-surgical cosmetic treatments such as injectables (Botox and fillers), laser hair removal, laser and chemical peels, and so on are much less popular in India than in the United States, China, and Brazil. Dimple surgery , on the other hand, seems to be much more appealing that one would ever expect.
